It doesn't mention if other browsers have the same issue.  Apparently this was reported to Apple in June and no response yet   Undecided

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

Actually, that would be a really good one if the onChange event fires when the auto fill goes off. Don't know, can't test ATM but that would make for an incredible hole. I wonder if there are  safeguards like "must be visible" and such ... Not tough to test, gonna have to try that when I get back.

Thanks ITTO

Hole is supposed to be fixed in the Safari update released yesterday.

Unfortunately, they didn't fix the more pressing Safari problems.  Safari still eats up memory until it kills my system.

So it's back to evil Chrome I go.
