    Default Passwords not hidden

    Does anybody else have the issue of the password not being hidden when being entered in the top-right hand corner of the page?

    This has always happened to me ONLY ON THIS FORUM.

    It is a security risk.

    (Note: "mypassword" is NOT my password )

    This is still happening (definitely a problem with the website, my computer has been wiped since the last post).

    Has anyone seen this?

    Sounds like a browser problem to me. The text box is of type password, which is left to the browser to interpret as being a password text box.

    I've found the issue.

    It happens when the page is not fully loaded yet.

    It seems that the password setting of the login section is not activated until the very last stages of loading. The problem is that this website seems to take considerably longer to load than many websites.
