Magento Admin Autocomplete

A recent Magento patch has disabled auto complete for admin login. This is pretty annoying.

Restoring Admin login autocomplete in Chrome

A simple fix for this is to load a js script into Chrome that re-enables this for you.

Add the following to a file named autocomplete.user.js and place this anywhere on your local file system:

1
2
3
4
5
var login = document.getElementById('login');

if (login) {
    login.setAttribute('autocomplete', '');
}

Now open the chrome extension manager and drag and drop the script into it. This will be installed as an extension. It can be disabled just like an extension as well.
