Re: Modifying Admin user in different browsers



I cannot reproduce this issue.

Changing the interface language works fine in Chrome, without entering the
password. The difference you are experiencing is most likely due to the
browser auto-filling one of the sensitive fields (which require the
password). Please try with the browser in incognito mode and with
suggestions/auto-filling turned off.

In any case you should abide by the password rules set by the system (the
admin:district on our demo DB is an exception for historical reasons).
