allow login page to work with password manager

What changes does a module have to make to the web client login page so that a password manager can be used?

Currently while password managers capture the username and password they can't be used to autocomplete the password for a login to the web client. This:-

  • makes testing a pain
  • reduces security by motivating users to use insecure passwords, or writing them down.

In two instances it means that OpenERP does not meet the clients security requirements. (must work with a password manager). As their requirements are logically sound I'm not going to argue with them.

I can confirm that LastPass can't fill the login form when using Firefox, Chrome, Opera or IE -- all on Windows.
