Description

Doing a diff between config.xml versions, I noticed that my pfsense's password was stored in plaintext format in

<proxyuser>admin</proxyuser>
<proxypass>password</proxypass>

Checking further, it seems that the Password Manager of my Firefox browser silently auto-completes the proxy username/pass form at System -> Advanced -> Misc

Probably needs a autocomplete="off" to prevent that.

PS: Same problem with the CP voucher webpage last year (which now includes the autocomplete="off" setting).

Apparently you can do this in jQuery by sticking one line in the file somewhere:

$('input').attr('autocomplete','off');

Just have that go on any page that isn't the login form and it should take care of it.
