Bug Description

When a nonexistent username is entered in the login form, the 'loginfailed' string is not displayed; unlike the expected behaviour when an existent username with an incorrect password is entered.

Current version: Mahara version 1.9.0dev (2014010800)

This is a regression in 1.9dev. Steps to replicate:

1. Go to the Mahara front page while logged out
2. In the login form, enter a non-existent username, and a password.
3. Click "Login" (or hit enter)

Expected result: You should see this warning message, and the same username and password (or at least a sufficient number of asterisks) should be present in the login form: "You have not provided the correct credentials to log in. Please check your username and password are correct."

Actual result: The page blinks as if reloading, and then displays the home page without any warning message, and the login form completely empty.

Using git bisect, I traced it to the JSDetector:

Given how many problems the JSDetector has caused, and that we're not even using it currently, I'm in favor of just reverting it. I'll file a bug for that.

Revert "Add class JavascriptDetector for checking if javascript is enabled"

This reverts commit 1cdc0486e956fbc4e2e1a10f50818156aece16ce.

The JSDetector class has caused three regressions so far (Bug 1270846,
Bug 1261610, and Bug 1268788). Since it's been buggy and it's not
actively in use anywhere in the site, I think we should revert it.
