what browser are you using?  can you change any other fields on that page, or is
password the only one misbehaving?  do you get an error message?

Browser:  I've tried mozilla-1.3b, galeon-1.3.2 ( beta ).  And thinking that it
was problem with the beta releases on the browser, I also downloaded:
mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.2.1-installer.tar.gz  ( and installed just the
browser ).

and in all three cases I was unable to change the password.  Let me know if
you'd like to use the mozilla RPMS which ship with phoebe3.  galeon-1.3.2 is the
RPM provided by the galeon team and mozilla is from the RedHat8x_RPMS from

Other fields:  Using all browsers I was able to change: First Name, Last Name
and Title.

ErrorMessage:  None.

I enter the password twice.  Click update and the old password returns.

A quick update.  I also tried to change the password on a RedHat 8.0 using
mozilla-1.0.1 and galeon 1.2.6 both are RedHat RPMS.

Addition to comment #3, I was unable to change the password using either galeon
o r mozilla.
