[Bug 394100] [NEW] Thunderbird asks for mail server tls certificates on startup, but offers no choise to use password

Public bug reported:
I just started using TB with S/MIME signing of messages with my new
personal digital certificate. Problem is that TB seemingly automatically
wants to use my personal cert for authenticating with the inbox server
(in my case POP3). My provider's inbox server supports TLS and no secure
authentication. When TB goes fetching e-mails, it asks me to select a
certificate to identify with.
Now, when I hit cancel, everything works fine. But when I select my
identity, my cert gets rejected and I cannot fetch my e-mails anymore.
At the moment, I have to either hit cancel (at least TB remembers that
"preference" for this program session) or delete my personal cert from
the cert list.
My service provider tells me that it is not to be used = they do not
support me authenticating with it (understandable).
Now, is there an option somewhere so that I tell TB not to use my
certificate for authenticating and instead use the usual password auth?
Thanks in advance,
** Affects: thunderbird (Ubuntu)
