I suspect this is in some way related to the issue I posted a long
ago that noone cared about, or noone could reproduce (IMHO, noone
I observed that an @ character was stripped from the password. I
out that this was an issue with the implementation of the password
box - manually entering the password containing the @ didn't work,
typing it elsewhere and pasting it in did.
Maybe you could try entering your password in notepad and
into Jitsi, then report back?
my reply was not attached to this thread so here is another try:
in pidgin I have added the ü to the password of my jabber account. I worked
fine in pidgin afterwards.
Then I tried to login via Jitsi and it told me that my credentials were
wrong. So I entered my password in notepad and copy-pasted it to Jitsi like
you had proposed. Again it rejected my credentials.
So I logged in via pidgin and removed the ü from the password. Afterwards
Jitsi accepted the password. So the notepad trick did not work in my case.
Maybe one more hint: I remember that when I created my jabber account with
Jitsi I saved my password in Jitsi. With this initial setting I was able to
use my account even with the ü-password. The trouble started when I decided
to un-tick the Remember my password box and to enter the password
