Icedove account creation not fully functional
I've tried this today on Tails 2.4:
Add email configuration for openmailbox. I enter my configurations and then tThe test with the password works.
Now I click "ready" and I get this error:
Programming bug. Assertion failed, see log.
When i close the window, my account is correctly created though.
The log said this:
-- Exception object -- + _message (string) 'Programming bug. Assertion failed, see log.' + stack (string) 702 chars + constructor (function) 5 lines + message (string) 'Programming bug. Assertion failed, see log.' + toString (function) 4 lines * -- Stack Trace -- Exception@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/util.js:132:5 NotReached@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/util.js:151:3 assert@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/util.js:23:1 SecurityWarningDialog.prototype.needed@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/emailWizard.js:1753:1 SecurityWarningDialog.prototype.open@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/emailWizard.js:1807:18 EmailConfigWizard.prototype.onCreate@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/emailWizard.js:1581:7 oncommand@chrome://messenger/content/accountcreation/emailWizard.xul:1:1 MsgAccountManager@chrome://messenger/content/accountUtils.js:255:1 oncommand@chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul:1:1 mimeEncrypt.js: module initialized
I've seen one other person reporting this on #tails.

- Only use secure protocols: checked
but the account was created without any error. Possibly it's different if a password is provided, but I have none and couldn't register one. Would it be possible for me to borrow your account (i.e. there's no sensitive info there) with a temporary password? Actually, you may first want to check if the problem persists with a recent
stablebuild which has Icedove 45esr and several fixes to the secure account creation feature: http://nightly.tails.boum.org/build_Tails_ISO_stable/lastSuccessful/archive/build-artifacts/

Using the credentials u provided me privately in Tails 2.4 I don't see the error trace ("programming bug") but the "Checking password" step always fails. So I have to leave it blank to get the account created. Luckily this is not the case for me in a recent
stable build, presumably thanks to the fixes in the patches. => Closing!
