I noticed myself after upgrading to Thunderbird 17 that I was being
prompted to authenticate seemingly for every calendar I was subscribed
to in addition to once for my mail.
After a lot of tinkering with versions and settings, I found myself
digging through the extracted contents of the Lightning extension.
There, I found the file calAuthUtils.jsm in the modules sub directory.
I've found that if I overwrite the "cal.auth.Prompt.prototype"
definition/code block, with the version from lightning-1.0b2.105i
(Inverse Edition for the 3.x release), and of course, re-zip the
extension back up and re-install it, I get the old behavior of only
being prompted to enter my password twice, once for mail and once for
all of my calendars.
This appears to work on Linux and OSX with 17.0.2.
I've yet to test with the 10.x series or with Windows but I suspect its
the same issue.
I believe it has to do with the way the authentication realms are being
handled for CalDAV auth, but I'm no expert.
Hope maybe this will help and not break too much stuff.
Seems to work.
Is there something new regarding this toppic? Since I moved from TB10 to
TB17 I got the master password login dialog three times on my linux box
as well (with the old TB10 I had it on windows only). I have to type in
the password only once and can close the other two boxes by hitting ESC
button.
