Generation popup doesn't appear when deleting to 3 chars

Project Member Reported by, Oct 29

Issue description

Chrome Version: 72.0.3590.0 (Dev)
OS: Linux (only checked on Linux)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
(1) Navigate to > Sign in > Create new account
(2) Click on the new password field and generate a password.
(3) Delete characters from the password until only 3 remain.

What is the expected result?
The generation popup offering a new generated password reappears.

What happens instead?
The generation popup offering a new generated password doesn't reappear
until the next action on the field (e.g. deleting one more character
or typing one).

This is a duplicate of  Issue 850079 . The drop down is suppressed via AutofillAgent::TextFieldDidEndEditing path immediately after being shown. Thus, it's not a regression.

Interestingly, I don't observe exactly the same behavior on my debug build. The editing dropdown is not visible while I'm removing the characters. Do you see it?
Good point. I don't see the editing dropdown while editing either.

The following revision refers to this bug:

commit acf9b5dcb5ffe3dbc2fc3d6fd79578dd7066a5b6
Author: Vasilii Sukhanov <>

Ignore blur events caused by the password generation.

When PasswordGenerationAgent copies the password value from the password field
to "Confirm Password" filed, a blur event is generated. It hides the currently
open generation prompt. Those events are just side-effects of how the class
works and should be ignored.
