Disable Firefox password manager

Posted

I'm a web designer and I'm having an issue were a user who is already logged in arrives on a page which allows them to update information on their account as well as update their password with a set of Current password, New password, re-enter password fields. I'm seeing that in firefox for users with password manager information saved, the first password field filled is being auto-completed by Firefox password manager and the entry field above the password reset section is populated by the username, despite the fact this field is not for a username.

I will note that this issue only occurs when the input field directly above the password field is intentionally blank (value="").

Is there any thing I can do without altering the layout of the page so that Firefox password manager will not incorrectly insert data into this field?

That is how the Firefox Password Manager is currently working. It tries to detect the password field by the type="password" attribute and assumes that the name field is the field directly before the password field in the DOM.

Here is an older blog, don't know if this still applies.
