Browser's password manager does not fill password on Confirm Password screen

      Description

      1. Sign in
      2. Save the user's password into the browser's password manager
      3. Account Settings
      4. Change the user's email address to a different address
      5. Click Save
      6. Note that the Confirm Password prompt is shown

      Result: Browser does not fill in the user's saved password
      Expected Result: Browser fills in the user's saved password

       

      The problem:
      In password_verification.jsp (master, 7.3.x), the password field looks like:

      <aui:input autocomplete="new-password" label="your-password" name="password" required="<%= true %>" size="30" type="password" />

      The attribute autocomplete="new-password" is preventing the browser from filling in the password. This attribute should be removed because the user is not entering a new password. (ref)
