Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

I have got thunderbird talking to our AD. That's good.

I observe two problems.

1) Offline download fails with no explanation.

2) Address book searches re-prompt for the password every time, even though I've checked the 'save password in password manager' box.

Hi. Both are reasonable behavior if you could not bind to the LDAP server, which might happen if you have wrong Bind DN / password. In order to proove the bind dn and password is working, in case ldap server is openldap, you need to enable certain error log (e.g. at debug level 256) and attach the error log here. This may need help from ldap server administrator.
