Username & password not filled in

Brave lately has not been automatically filling in the username & password, but forces me to click inside the username field. I can then select the username, and then the username & password are filled in. But is there a way to get Brave to automatically insert both?

I thought that this was because sometimes there would be more than one possible username associated with a url, but this happens even when there is only one option.

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. go to website that requires username & password to log in
  2. see if both fields are automatically filled in

**Expected result: both username & password should be filled in

**Brave Version Version 1.10.64 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

I am on Beta, but this is strange behavior; its hard for me to imagine that this is something that is supposed to happen even in a beta.

That’s an expected behavior.

Interesting. I’m not sure why this would be a desired effect, although I’d love an option to toggle it off if this is default.

IIRC it’s for security reason.

OK I see that, but I would still prefer an option to toggle this off. I am just not seeing enough spam get through my filter to make me worry about my email address being illicitly harvested by spammers.
