User Agent's "password manager"

I don't know if this has already been reported, so...

In the admin control panel, when you specify a username and password to the SMTP server, and click on 'submit', the browser detects that a username and password is being sent. So it triggers its 'password manager' which asks if it should save the username and password for later use.

This is a minor annoyance, but unecessary, since this is not something the user normally wants to be saved. I don't know exactly what in the HTML code triggers this, but if it can be easily circumvented, that would be nice.

Cheers,
Per

Hhmm.. I don't know if there is a way to block that. As far as I know, it can't be done (well, it's a guess)

You could be right. It depends on what triggers the UA:s password manager: a HTML input field named "password" or a HTML input field of *type* "password" (with hidden echo). In the first case, it should be easy just to rename it, in the second, well, I would give up.

Cheers!
