Description Mike 2015-02-26 20:30:54 UTC
When I open a webdav link from my web browser, the master password UI prompt shows up for a split second but then immediately gets minimized. The user is required to click the taskbar icon twice (not just once) to see the prompt and enter their password.

This is fairly substantial nuisance because users will be opening webdav documents throughout the day, and every time they open a document they will be prompted for the master password, and we will have to train them to find the unlabeled icon in the taskbar and click on it not once, but twice, to enter the password.

Few other remarks:

* This is on the 4.4.1 release (not, but this was closest version).
* It seems the prompt pops up properly the 1st time a webdav link is opened in a browser, but then on further webdav open attempts it has this issue.
* Webdav server requires basic authentication and the username/password were saved to protected password manager, thus requiring master password UI.
* Client is Windows 7 x64
* It would be really nice if the master password could be saved for the lifetime the user is logged into their computer.

Forgot to mention, this is opening webdav link from Google Chrome (40.0.2214.115 m). I registered dav handler in windows as described in alfresco wiki article:

Dear Mike,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
