Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7210
RFE: Login prompt should fill in the login field if possible
Last modified: 2013-06-23 23:08:03 EDT
When I hav valid Bugzilla_login cookie and invalid Bugzilla_logincookie
cokie and try to do something (for example, enter a new bug), Bugzilla
would eventually ask me to login. It may be a good idea to put contents of
my Bugzilla_login cookie into the login field of the login prompt, so that
I do not have to type it every time I log in.
That is a very good suggestion. I will try to work that in as soon as possible.
I have changed this to an RFE.
I just wanted to remind you that this problem still exists. Sorry for bothering
you if you do remember it.
This bug has been idle for over a year and I still have to enter my e-mail every
time I log in...
This is really annoying (for us dial-up users) and I imagine that it should be
relatively easy to fix. Please!
On of the problems with this is that the only way to system could gain your
login name is if you by chance still have a Bugzilla_login cookie lying around.
Depending on if you logged out by normal means or if the cookie has expired, it
may or may not be there. I will see about adding a check that if the cookie is
still there it can possibly fill in the field as a suggestion if not leave it
blank. One additional note is that most modern browsers (IE, Mozilla) with the
exception of 4.x Netscape can now fill in automatically login names and
passwords for you if you have that preference enabled.
Well, that's why I said - "for us dial-up users" - AFAIK the cookie depends on
the IP address, so each time the IP changes, we have to re-login... Automatic
password filling would definitely help, but I am not ready to migrate to Mozilla
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
Still there, but I think that it has a fairly low priority now that most open
source browsers can autofill password forms.
