For security reasons, the latest OpenMRS now has the autocomplete=”off” html attribute on its login page.  This will prevent the users from seeing a dropdown of previously logged in users.

Unfortunately, this will cost developers precious seconds when writing and testing code.

I found this “Autocomplete Ongreasemonkey script to re-enable autocomplete on all forms.  However, I want Firefox to fill in the admin/test username and password on the form for me, and even with this script it wasn’t doing that.

Luckily I was able to easily craft a new greasemonkey script based on that example. This script inserts “admin” and “test” into all login pages on any OpenMRS site.  Click here to download and install my script: openmrs-login.js (after installing the greasemonkey plugin).
