Please look at the original report and Comment #4. It is not an auto-fill
Comment #2 is an auto-fill bug and it was moved to another bug entry.
Regardless of the auto-fill bug, we still have compatibility issues and we
can't force authors to update their web pages. I'm wondering UA should
show a dialog with "The web page has invisible invalid form fields. Do you
want to submit the form? [Yes] [No]".
