It would be nice for the login form to default to lowercase for the username. Currently, if you are logging in from an iOS device, the first letter in the username defaults to uppercase from the device. It's a bit of a pain to have to remember to turn off the shift so that "admin" doesn't become "Admin". I have used web forms in other apps such as Guacamole, and they seem to default to lowercase, which I would imagine would be the preference for most.

BTW, love what pfSense 2.3 is becoming. Very slick.

this works on android, don't have iOS to test this on.

I found references stating that autocapitalize="off" is now deprecated and should be changed to autocapitalize="none"

I will test once it is merged, and will let you know if this is resolved on iOS.

Just pulled the update from master and I have confirmed that it is working as expected on iOS Safari. The username field now defaults to lowercase for the first letter. I will leave it with you on whether it should be changed to autocapitalize="none" instead of autocapitalize="off", as referenced. Thx.

I changed it to use "none" instead since off is deprecated. Fixed
