I'm running MySQL 5.5.20 on OS X 10.6.8. Using MySQL Administrator 1.2.12 (the latest) I am unable to edit any accounts. After successfully connecting to the database in MySQL Administrator, I go the Account tab, expand a user, and it just says "Loading...". It will stay on "Loading..." indefinitely.

enter image description here

The symptoms are almost identical to user's experience and this MySQL bug from 2006, which has since been closed (fixed?).

If I create a user and grant permissions to a schema, I get the error "Could not save changes to the use", which came up in 2005 as a bug (now closed).

How do I edit MySQL accounts using MySQL Administrator?

Sure seems like a bug in that client application, and not in the MySQL server. – Zoredache Jan 29 '12 at 7:52
I'm seeing the same thing. Very, very frustrating. – user149565 Dec 13 '12 at 21:31
