Set autocomplete=new-password for user/password fields in forms
It looks like at least Firefox and Chrome current versions suppress autocomplete for usernames and passwords when using
autocomplete="new-password" rather than
off which all browsers ignore for login fields these days.
Tested on a few pages with success, so it should be more widely implemented.

This appears to be working as intended and it doing a nice job. Pages that were particularly annoying before (like system_advanced_misc.php) no longer attempt to auto-fill. If there are still problems with this in place, there likely isn't much if anything more we can do at this point.
Tested on 2.4.5.a.20191217.0637 (and numerous 2.5.0 snaps up to this point)

On what version? This fix has been applied on 2.4.5 and 2.5.0, and on those versions I do not see the browser attempting to auto-fill proxy or auth data on OpenVPN clients (There is no proxy field on the server).
If you are still on 2.4.4-p3, then it won't be fixed until you upgrade. If you are on 2.4.5 or 2.5.0, then your browser or a browser add-on is not respecting the fields and there isn't anything else to do here.
