With the possible to alterate the html code this happen.

If someone have the password saved com chrome, you can simply turn the "*****" password into text like you can see on the image.

For me this is a security problem.

And this is possible on mozilla too

The masking in the password field is only to prevent someone from seeing your password as it's typed on the screen. If someone has access to your account or can execute code in the target site's origin, then there's no need to watch your screen because they can already get your password directly.
