Login manager, xulrunner-24.0

Login manager, xulrunner-24.0

Hi there,

I'm using the current master branch of Conkeror with xulrunner-24.0 on
Debian. Since upgrading to xulrunner-24.0 I've found that password
auto form filling and password storing doesn't work anymore. I have
the following in my RC file:

session_pref("signon.rememberSignons", true);
session_pref("signon.expireMasterPassword", false);
session_pref("signon.SignonFileName", "signons.txt");

Components.classes["@mozilla.org/login-manager;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsILoginManager);

And I can confirm from about:config that those session preferences are
set, and also that "signon.autofillForms" is true.

M-x password-manager brings up the password manager and all my signon
information is present.

Any suggestions?

Richard

Can you identify the XULRunner version at which this stopped working?  24,
or earlier?  Here is a reference on how to manually install XULRunner, and
a link to Mozilla's binary releases: http://conkeror.org/XULRunner#Manual

I've just tried and it works on 23.0.1, but not on 24.1.0 (my current
Debian version) or on 25.0.1 (which I also downloaded from
mozilla.org to try).

Mozilla always published a "what changed" document for each release of the
platform.  Find the one for 24 and see if anything relevant is in it.
