Just switched over to Brave this month and absolutely love it as a product. Ran into my first bug today and wanted to submit a report to the community.
Description of the issue:
I’m taking an online coding course through Vertabelo Academy and every time I progress to the next exercise, Brave’s password manager keeps popping up. This was driving me nuts, and I managed to prevent it from occurring by removing this site from Brave’s password manager and turning off password manager entirely.
While I have a dedicated password manager (lastpass), I’ve noticed that its extension doesn’t always work great with Brave, so it’s handy to just have Brave remember passwords for non-essential sites.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Launch Brave
- Go to Vertabelo coding exercise
- Password manager prompt appears despite there not being a password field.
Password manager prompt does not appear.
Reproduces how often:
Every time I got to another page or reload.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
OS: Windows 10, Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
Brave Version: Version 0.62.51 Chromium: 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I have not tried this with other coding education sites, so that is potentially a next step to further investigate. My suspicion is that the password manager is for some reason incorrectly flagging these fields for enter code as password fields.
