NS_ERROR_FAILURE when changing the owner of a workitem to unassigned

Martin Wassermann (13864144) | asked Sep 19 '12, 3:58 a.m.
When trying to change the owner to unassigned in the web client of a work item I got the following error message:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)

After refreshing the item I can see, that the change of owner was executed despite the error message. Did anybody know why this happened? We use RTC v4.

Hi Martin,

We reported and fixed a very similar error in July.  The defect is tracked in NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMHTMLInputElement.setSelectionRange (206713).  It looks like this could be the same error you're hitting.

Yes, the error message looks very similar. So this fix will be delivered in the next release?
