    go here --

    put your cursor into the New Password box

    close your eyes and type a few letters

    open your eyes, highlight what you typed, copy/paste into the Confirm New Password box, press Save Changes button

    clear your browser cache to delete the cookie

    thanks for stopping by

    okay, plan b

    open a new file in a text editor

    type some letters at random (you can keep your eyes open this time)

    highlight, copy/paste into both New Password and Confirm New Password

    continue from there

    then exit out of text editor without saving the file

    How about user logs out, uses the "I've lost my password" link, DBforums generates a new one and emails him\ her, OP closes his\ her eyes and deletes the email without reading it (along with other important documents....maybe).

    We're missing something here; the email password recovery will still be active - so the user should register a new email address, then change their account one to point at this, verify the new email, then change password.

    Then change email account password in a similar vein and everthing should be sound.

    ...but then, what about those security questions that let you recover your email password?
