Interesting, the html code looks correct that is getting sent by Bugzilla:

    <td colspan="3">
      Please enter your existing password to confirm account changes.
    <th align="right">Password:</th>

      <input type="hidden" name="Bugzilla_login" 
      <input type="text" type="password" name="Bugzilla_password">
    <td colspan="2"><hr></td>


    <th align="right">New password:</th>
      <input type="text" type="password" name="new_password1">

    <th align="right">Re-enter new password:</th>

      <input type="text" type="password" name="new_password2">

Wonder if the proper syntax has changed? Will look into this. This
also seems to happen in konqueror as well.

egads, didnt even notice the double type attributes when I cut and
pasted. Ok, removing the type="text" has fixed the problem. Thanks!
