password reset weirdness
Via ZenDesk: "I am having issues trying to reset my password. When I enter my new password and click on “Reset Password” I get the passwords don't match warning." She then sent me an image showing that there's no place to re-enter your password once you change it. (images attached)
I thought this was user error, so I tried to change the password on my account associated with email@example.com. I received an entirely blank email (also attached).
Then I tried with firstname.lastname@example.org. This worked fine: I received a non-blank email (attached), clicked on the link and saved my password without problem. Logged in with the new password.

The plot thins! I think you can ignore my not-getting-the email problem. That is only true if I am not VPN'd in. I receive the full email when I am using VPN (see "nevermind" attachment). IThis is annoying but not the Commons' problem.
Now I'm a little back to thinking user error. I've asked the user to try with a different browser.

So some form of blocking is taking place in her browser. Can you ask which browser addons she is using?

Thanks for following up, Marilyn.
I was using Firefox for my tests and the reset password form was able to submit properly. (My Firefox setup is also more hardened than most.) If we get more reports of reset password problems, then we can spend a bit more time on this. For now, I'm going to close this.
