Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9703
bugzilla keeps asking me for my username and password
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
bugzilla.redhat.com keeps asking me for my username and password before
every operation requiring a login. I am specifying the correct ones each
my ~/.netscape/cookies file does contain bugzilla cookies. I have never
seen this problem before. I suspect that there is something wrong with the
I just quit and restarted netscape to see if that was the problem, and it does
not appear to have helped. Viewing this bug, I see "Login:
firstname.lastname@example.org" in the header bar, but there's no link, e.g., to
allow me to add an attachment to the bug, which suggests that bugzilla doesn't
think I'm logged in as the user who created the bug.
Please try quitting Netscape completely. Then edit ~/.netscape/cookies and
remove all instances of the lines that contain Bugzilla_login and
Bugzilla_logincookie. The re-run Netscape, connect to Bugzilla and re-login.
Please let me know if this fixes the problem for you.
