Reset password issues

I'm just testing the lost password feature on a site I currently have in development. So I visit the page (, enter my email address, and within a few minutes I recieve an email with a reset password link in it.

So far so good..

The problem is, once I hit the reset password link in the email, I'm taken to a form which not only asks me for my new password, but also asks me for my old one as well.

This would be fine if I knew what my old password was, but seeing as I started this process by using the lost password form, this doesn't make any sense.

Am I missing something?

Thank you.

My bad...

... I've got a two browser set-up on my machine, and I had visited the lost password form using a browser on which I was not logged into the site - but upon getting the reset link, I viewed it on a browser in which I WAS logged in - which I'm guessing is why I got the current password field.

I've since used the reset link on the other browser, and got what I expected.
