Repeat Password field missing during installation

Description

I did a new install of WP 5.8 on my MAMP server.

On the Installation step, after adding site name, username, password and email, I kept getting a "passwords do not match" error. The problem is that only one password field was displayed.

After some research, I temporarily disabled javascript, which allowed me to see the second password field and complete the installation step. So there seems to be a javascript bug preventing the repeat password field from displaying.

MacOS 10.14.6, Safari 14.1.2, MAMP Pro 6.5, Apache 2.4.48, PHP 7.4.21

Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

On the Installation step, after adding site name, username, password and email, I kept getting a "passwords do not match" error. The problem is that only one password field was displayed.

I could not reproduce the issue in my testing (currently using Edge 92.0.902.73).

Looking at the bindPasswordForm() JS function, only one password field is supposed to be displayed, the other one is hidden but synchronized automatically with the first one in case extensions like LastPass fill the second one.

  1. Which browser are you using?
  2. Does the issue still happen with all browser extensions disabled?
  3. Are there any JavaScript errors or warnings in the browser console?
  4. Could you try copying all the files from a freshly downloaded package to make sure they are all in place?
