Since I made a comment on the Mandela thread (it posted fine) I have those words in my comment box on every thread, every forum. In order to make a different comment I first have to highlight and delete them.

I have logged out and back in to ATP, restarted the computer, cleared the cache on the browser - I'm out of things to try.

@Dave is it possible for you to clear this or is it something in my browser doing it?

That is really, really strange. I have no idea what could be causing that. It's definitely your browser doing it, not ATP. So you see the message in the reply box below? What is the exact wording that's in the box?

I figured it out while working online this afternoon. It is LastPass, the password keeper. For some unknown reason it has started to save anything I fill into a form. I've looked everywhere on it to find a place to turn it off and no luck so far. This is new behavior as I would certainly have noticed it if it were happening before. Perhaps when they were changing things for Heartbleed they changed something in the settings. What I can do though, is 'clear all saved forms' in LastPass and the problem is erased for awhile, it did return on my work sites so I had to do it repeatedly. Not a feature. Anyway, clearing it for work has also cleared it here, so that's good. At least I know what is doing it now even though I haven't yet found a real solution. Thanks and sorry for thinking it was only here on ATP.

I think I have figured out how to disable this 'feature' in case anyone else is using LastPass and has the same change. If you go into your site vault, click on a site (ATP in this case) and then click the pencil icon to edit the site... there is a checkbox at the bottom that says 'disable auto fill'. That seems to have been unchecked on all sites in some recent upgrade. Irritating to have to go in and change them all, especially for me as I have dozens of sites in there for work, but at least it seems to have solved the problem.
