Description Josef Komenda 2002-07-09 11:09:24 EDT
Description of Problem: A problem seen intermittently in Galeon 1.2.0 and
reliably in Mozilla 1.0 (Win98). The passwords populated into the 'user details'
and 'my details' pages does not always match, so that any edits to those pages
will result in a rejection based on a password mismatch.

How Reproducible: On webqa:
Account - jkomenda
Pass - pink4all
Comment 1 Bret McMillan 2002-07-12 15:52:08 EDT
Am not seeing this on my galeon 1.2.1

I registered a new user to webqa db, then tried the webcode on my box, and

So, need more info.

This problem is also hapening in Satellite, and it prevents you from changing
premissions for users. To duplicate, install a satellite 1.1, create a new user,
and change the users' permissions. The password(s) will change when you save,
and you will not be able to log in as that user.
Comment 3 Josef Komenda 2002-07-16 17:14:22 EDT
Scratch that last entry - although this does affect the satellite, it does not
behave in the way described above.
Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2002-07-17 18:24:13 EDT
Chip, could you please look into this? This can be replicated on
sat-app.test.redhat.com by looking at:

Username: sat-app
Password: pink4all

The problem also shows up for the initial user under:

Bret looked at that code and removed the password attrib in the form so we could
see what was being passed, and the error went away - he can tell you what he
modified in those files.
Comment 5 Josef Komenda 2002-07-17 19:29:00 EDT
Also, (and this is a little thing) the text for: 'User Roles' right above the
passwords, you can see that 'Channel Administrator' is displayed twice. Kindly
remove the duplication, both on the 'Your Account' and 'User Details' pages :-)
Comment 6 Josef Komenda 2002-07-18 17:54:44 EDT
Hmm.. not happening anymore. Bah!
Comment 7 Josef Komenda 2002-09-05 11:07:28 EDT
This has been figured out thanks to cturner. The problem is when you use Mozilla
or Galeon, and use the Manage Passwords feature. The variable name on the User
Details and My Details pages is the same as the login page, so Mozilla and
Galeon drop the value in. Changing the variable name on those two pages should
fix the problem.
Comment 8 Bret McMillan 2002-12-13 11:36:23 EST
Should be fixed in titan-lite tree, joek, can you confirm?
Comment 9 Josef Komenda 2003-04-09 15:56:51 EDT
Fixed on the live site, will be in the next sat - closing.
