Ok, here it is what's wrong. We use in our company a kind of older version of WebLogic server.

There I have to create a user for some service and I have to setup a password for this user. Of course there are two fields (password, confirm password) When I write the password in both of them and press apply it does not send the password from the second field (I guess), so I end up with a message "Password differ!" You tell me if it's normal?!

I tried the same with firefox 2 - everything is working fine :-P

As I stated somewhere else I don't want to be a beta tester for anything especially if I was not informed about it in advance.

regards
