    login form trouble with firefox

    when i logout of my admin area in firefox a login form is loaded. unfortunately the values entered at the beginning of the session are still there (not in ie!). i've tried putting 'value=""' as an <input> attribute but that still brings up one char in the password field (presumably in the username field too).

    how do i make sure the form is empty?

    Others won't see this, it's because Firefox will automatically save these values for you. Try clearing out your private data (CTRL+SHIFT+DEL), and you will see that it is no longer there. In options, I think you can change it by going to Tools > Options > Privacy > Passwords > Uncheck Remember Passwords.
    Hope that helps,

    will this happen when another user uses their machine, tho? just worried about the (extremely small) chance of them being followed by someone we don't want accessing the cms.

    The values will show again if the person hasn't protected their profile. Whenever FireFox is open under the same user profile it will show the values if it was told to do so. BTW: IE will also do this if it's set to do so.
