Working fine for me... maybe it was fixed somewhere along the way.

I'm having the exact same problem on Firefox 14, Windows Server 2008 R2, Django 1.4 and the Django development server.

There is a small difference however. The dialog shows in another view, django.contrib.auth.views.password_change The list of users I get is also different. All users appear. I suppose Django is showing User.objects.all().

When the password you are changing from is the same as the password you are changing to, the dialog does not show up at all.

The dialog seems to be modal, and does not appear in Internet Explorer 9. I have tested no other browsers as of yet.

If the original reporter would show up and say whether he was using Windows Server and/or Firefox we could narrow down the bugs. In the meantime, I will try to reproduce it.

Carl here.

5 years later I think I understand, and I don't think this is a django problem at all.

The dialog is coming from the browser's "saved passwords" management system. There might be some meta tags that could be added to tell the browser something, but I don't think it is worth the trouble.
