SYMPTOMS

When you connect to a Firewall1 proxy server from Internet Explorer 4.01 Service Pack 2 (SP2) to change your password on a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server, you may receive truncated error messages in the Source box in the Enter Network Password dialog box. For example , the text may be
FW-1 [FW-1 password] Your
instead of
FW-1 [FW-1 password] Your password has expired. Enter new password
In Internet Explorer 5 and 5.01, the error message may read "Proxy/Firewall" instead of "Source."

CAUSE

The static text in the dialog box is too small to contain the entire server message.
