#16485 new defect

OAuth wizard windows have tendency to hide their own error messages

Reported by: ris Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version: tested
Keywords: oauth error dialog focus Cc:


When the token retrieval process fails and shows an error message ("The automatic process ... has failed ..." message) There appears to be a timer of some sort running that periodically moves the preferences dialogs back to on top of this message, hiding it. And since the error dialog is modal, the preference panels cannot be interacted with - for seemingly no reason. This is extremely confusing for new users and annoying for all users.

This is happening for me on linux r14206, but I've seen similar things happen on multiple platforms on multiple releases.
