Description of problem:
When changing directories Nautilus will ask again for the password to access a
deeper directory when borowsing a webDav directory. It would be great to be
able to remember passwords.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Bookmark a webDav directory in the form http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org
2.double click a directory to enter and a password box pops up already filled
with non-relevant text.
3.enter username and password to continue
Actual Results: A password box arrives with an incorrect username and password.
Filling this it it often remembers the password for the session. There is no
check box to store the password permanently. If only the username is entered in
the URL you are denied entry with no password dialog.
Expected Results: The password from the URL should be removed and cached. It
would be useful to have some form of login choice in a menu to enter a password
as most users are ignorant of how to enter a username in a URL and hence they
would have difficulty accessing webDav directories.
Certainly, moving upstream as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76646
Closing on RH level.
