Browser autocomplete is annoying on Special:NewLexeme with entity suggestor
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The browser autocomplete field is very annoying on Special:NewLexeme.
I should be able to see the entity suggester here, but it is hidden under the auto completion.

I'm pretty sure there is a way to disable browser autocomplete here, it might be worth doing?

*buzz* This is annoying

Apparently it’s pretty simple: set autocomplete="off" (see MDN).
