Autocomplete on botcheck pages (in General)
Sometime around Wednesday or so, autocomplete randomly turned on for botcheck pages. If I'm mindlessly hitting enter at the time, I'm out 150K. It's already happened to me three times just yesterday, and very nearly once today. I've already disabled autocomplete in Firefox's settings, so I don't see why it autofills in a random word every time I get a botcheck. Has anybody else had this problem?

I haven't noticed any change, but I thought autocomplete only brought up a drop down menu so you could select a word if you wanted to.

I periodically get an autocomplete box depending on the machine I play from - but at home I generally do not. Perhaps someone more internet-savvy than I can help you.
Just thought I'd let you know I don't share your problem, though. :)

It's your browser or something else on your PC.

It is a simple addition that Jonathan can make to the input field to keep that from happening and override any browser from doing it.
