I go to:

I have two fields:


plus an option to change my password.

I type in a new email address.

I click Save Changes.

I get an error: “1 error prohibited this account from being saved

There were problems with the following fields:

  • Password doesn’t match confirmation”


I do not want to change my password, and there is no field for entry of password or confirmation of password.

Hi Rob, seems like your browser prefilled the password textbox before you submitted the form. The password textbox is still there.. it’s just hidden. Just click on the ‘change password’ link and make both password textboxes blank before clicking on Save Changes.

I will also fix this by turning off auto-complete on the passwords.

Have your say...
