The title says enough, when typing in the textarea next to MySQL Password the letters should become dots, and they dont...
I'll take this approach.As this will only ever be seen by the person installing the software, who will obviously have to know the password, I can't see it being much of in issue in my opinion.
Yeah, computers need to be secure, I agree. But if hackers want to be in my computer, they will be. Nothing to do about that...I'll take this approach.
Generally people that admin sites need to keep their computers secure. If a browser is remembering the mysql password, it will be remembering other passwords like cpanel/whm, email, all sorts of things.
The password is being input into a plain text box, so it gets remembered in Firefox, Chrome and other browsers without any prompt.I don't generally use Chrome. Firefox asks if I want to remember passwords before saving them. A much better behavior.
This might be a reason to avoid chrome whether this is changed in Xenforo or not.
