masking password bugs
« on: February 23, 2006, 09:50:34 AM »
I am using Version 1.5 beta3

Bug 1:
The field 'Mask Generated Password with Asterisk' asks for a Master password to be entered in a popup window only when the 'Master Password' field (to the left) has something entered in it.  Isn't this the opposite of what we want?  I think it should only popup that window when the 'Master Password' field has a nothing or an incorrect Master Password.

Bug 2:
In the main PasswordMaker window, the field 'Generated Password' field has the value 'enter a master password'

In the account specific settings popup window, sometimes the 'Generated Password' field shows the password even when the 'Mask Generated Password

oops, that posted by accident before I was finished...

Bug 2:
In the account specific settings popup window, sometimes the 'Generated Password' field shows the password even when the 'Mask Generated Password with Asterisks' field is checked.  If you uncheck it then recheck it, it will behave as it should.  However, the problem comes back when you close the main PasswordMaker window and open it back up again.

Bug 3:
I am not sure if this one is expected behavior or not...  When you have masking enabled but have no Master Password typed in there are about 23 asterisks.  As soon as you put even one character in, the number of asterisks suddenly jumps down to your password length.  Shouldn't it stay at 23 so as not to give away that info?  For that matter, there should be 23 asterisks in the account specific settings window as well instead of the password length.
