    Still getting this issue. Tried to login, and couldn't. Did a password reset.
    I would like to use my own password but as the screenshot above there is no space to type in the current password.
    I had this happen on another forum (almost the same skin) and there was a fix. I can't remember what it was.

    Nothing?
    I'll try Firefox and see if I could change it. I'm using the most recent version of IE.

    edit: I have the same problem using Firefox.

    edit again: Doesn't work on my iPhone 4 either.

    Unable to change password. Tried using
    - IE v9.0
    - FireFox v13.0.1
    - Internet App on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

    Looking at the page source, appears the input field for "currentpassword" is broken... Look at line 487 of attached image.

    Try to go to some tech guy at the service provider or manufacturing company of your tab

    ok folks, here's a workaround. Involves editing the page manually to show the text box for the current password...

    1.1) Use the reset password page to reset your p/w and get a temporary one
    1.2) Log-in using the temporary password
    1.3) Navigate to the change password page
    2.1) Save the page to your computer
    2.2) Minimize, don't close, your browser
    3) Open the page using a text editor
    4) Locate the line that reads:
    <input type="hidden" name="currentpassword" id="currentpassword" />

    5) Delete that line, and only that line
    6) Add the following text in the same location as the line you just deleted
    <h3 class="blocksubhead">Old Password</h3>
    <div class="section">
    <div class="blockrow">
    <ul class="group">
    <li>
    <label for="currentpassword">Old Password:</label>
    <input type="password" class="textbox" name="currentpassword" id="currentpassword" maxlength="50" />
    </li>
    </ul>
    <p class="description">Enter old password for your user account. Note that passwords are case-sensitive.</p>
    </div>
    </div>

    7) Save the file back to your computer. make sure you save as a text file
    8) Open a new tab in the browser you previously minimized
    9) In the new tab, open the file you saved and edited
    10) you should now see the "Old Password" textbox... Go forth and change your password and be happy...

    So this is actually an intended feature of vBulletin + facebook integration. When you signup or use facebook connect, it converts your account to a vbulletin / facebook account. Which means you dont need a password anymore. So it doesn't give you the option. vBulletin assumes once you're using facebook for login, you dont need a password.

    Sorry for any confusion. If you dont wanna deal with FB anymore and you want your account converted back, please PM me.

    Ok I've linked mine to facebook, yet I can still login using the password - facebook is as well as, not instead of.

    This is a fairly serious issue, as the reason I am going around changing my password is a site I use the exact same login details on has been compromised.

    Also add to that for the same reason, you can't change the email address on your account, one which I have now closed.

    Anyway is there any easy way to change the password, or a delete account button? I would rather delete it than leave it here with an old email, and a known to be 'out there' password.

    Thanks
