An optional interface for clients wishing to access a password object
readonly AUTF8String host
The name of the host corresponding to the login being saved
The form of the host depends on how the nsIPassword object was created
- if it was created as a result of submitting a form to a site, then the host is the url of the site, as obtained from a call to GetSpec
- if it was created as a result of another app (e.g., mailnews) calling a prompt routine such at PromptUsernameAndPassword, then the host is whatever arbitrary string the app decided to pass in.
Whatever form it is in, it will be used by the password manager to uniquely identify the login realm, so that "newsserver:119" is not the same thing as "newsserver".
readonly AString password
The password portion of the login
readonly AString user
