seems more of a firefox question than a PHP question...

just replace <form id="formemail" method="post" action="UserPrefs">

I found that for xhtml I had to use following DOCTYPE to get it to validate:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" ""; [
<!ATTLIST form autocomplete CDATA #IMPLIED>

From what I gather though did not try, sent with improper text/html mime type, browsers add a bogus ]> to top of output, declaring an ATTLIST should only be done if sent as application/xhtml+xml

I still have to check and see how opera reacts to that (IE gets html version of my pages so it won't get that anyway, I can't test safari)

html won't validate with that attribute, but that's OK I guess.
Maybe it will in html 5 (I don't know) but that's not even stable yet.

I'd prefer it to be at the input level rather than form level, the problem (and I think it is a firefox bug) is that it assumes an input before a password the same form as a password is a login name.

I *might* actually be able to just move the password field above the e-mail change and fix it.

But the autocomplete='off' is very useful to me for another form where users add GPS coordinates, which are from within shasta county and thus all very close, unless the records are for identical coordinates they'll never be the same and if they are identical, using the autocomplete feature risks a mistake of selecting the wrong one thus resulting in bogus data.
