I am unable to login to WordPress backend from the login modal. Always get 'ERROR: The password field is empty.' error but if I login through this link https://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/ or https://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php it works.

I believe the modal login should work irrespective of where you are?

Have experienced this on more than five sites.

See the attached screenshot.

Hey there,

Thanks for your report! Are you perhaps using Chrome and its autofill functionality? If so, this sounds like a duplicate of #30023.
