IE 11 issue with two password input fields

    Question

  • Hi

    I am finding a strange issue on IE 11, which is already reported in a topic "IE11 and multiple password text boxes".

    I am attaching a simple html document which shows the issue. After filling the password and confirm password fields, click submit. It can be seen that the confirm password field immediately becomes empty. The GET/POST request also has the confirm password field as empty. Is this a bug in IE 11 as it works fine with older versions of IE and other browsers?

    Regards
    Deepesh

  • Hi,

    I can confirm the issue.... post to http://connect.Microsoft.com/ie

    here is Dragons query string

    name=Unspecified+Name&passwd=test&confirm_passwd=test&btnEdit=Save+Changes#

    here is IE11's

    name=Unspecified+Name&passwd=test&confirm_passwd=&btnEdit=Save+Changes#

    there appears to be the same query in earlier IE versions.

    IE9 - name=Unspecified+Name&passwd=test&confirm_passwd=&btnEdit=Save+Changes

    However.... the common design pattern is to use client side scripting to validate the password and confirm password fields... on Join pages where you require a user to confirm their passwords you may not even use password fields and allow users to directly compare their new password and compare password entries. If you can find a high volume website where the above has an impact it will carry more weight with your issue ticket at connect.

  • Thanks Rob for confirming on the issue.

    However I didn't find the issue on IE9 and even IE10. But its consistent on different installations of IE 11.

    A similar code is part of a legacy system, so cant do much on the existing design.
    I will file a ticket with Microsoft and try to get it resolved.

    Thanks

  • SOLUTION :

    I find out this solution with Browser - IE 11 setting.

    Following Setting need to do for resolve this issue.

    Go to IE 11 - Internet Option -> Auto Complete Settings ->

    "User Names and Passwords on Forms" - DO NOT Select these check boxes.

    With above setting "Confirm Password" fields will not get blank automatically.
