It sounds like your problem is with iceweasel, and it's definitely not to do with Django, so you need to file a bug report on their bug tracker. Cheers.

This is the behavior of the browser (some would even argue expected). Django would need to rename those fields in order for this autofill feature not to kick in. I don't think that renaming the fields is a good idea, because it would mean unexpected field names in the admin.

It is the browser providing those credentials. You can file a bug with Mozilla or Debian, but I would guess they would state that it is expected. The field's name is password, if you store your password in the browser, when another field on the site is named password, it autofills it.

You can always set autocomplete="off" as an HTML attribute on the username and password fields within the Admin section; we do so on such fields in our Django apps.
