Description

During installation and during a password reset, the generated password doesn't fit into the password input field. This makes the process feel really janky, even if I'm using a password manager and don't even need to see the password.

These passwords should be generated at a length of 16 or 18 characters, instead of the current 24.

The install screen one should usually fit, but I guess that’s the joys of variable-width characters.
