Access to bug #1064636 is still blocked although affected applications
have been fixed and released. How soon will this be unblocked?

I am sticking with SeaMonkey 2.26.1 until saved passwords can
be used when autocomplete=no. See

Generally, access to fixed security bugs in a release is not opened up
for at least a week or two after the release date to ensure users have
ample time to upgrade before specific technical details are made
available. This is to ensure that attackers can't misuse this
information on unsuspecting users before they have had a chance to
upgrade to a patched version.
