Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68352
Password mismatch on user_details.pxt
Last modified: 2007-07-31 15:24:31 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
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.
Scratch that last entry - although this does affect the satellite, it does not
behave in the way described above.
Chip, could you please look into this? This can be replicated on
sat-app.test.redhat.com by looking at:
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.
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 :-)
Hmm.. not happening anymore. Bah!
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.
Should be fixed in titan-lite tree, joek, can you confirm?
Fixed on the live site, will be in the next sat - closing.
