You expect us to read your mind to figure out what sites it doesn't work on?
"One hosts to look them up, one DNS to find them and in the darkness BIND them."

Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce x64 on HP i5 laptop with 4 GB RAM, always latest versions of PM & Basilisk unless specified.

Please provide links to the sites where this happens and describe specifically what happens when "passwords fail." Once you've done this other people can try to help you out.

I really don't care to post a of list of banks that I use...
So closest answer is the 3 that I have tried to so far.
All 3 reported multiple password failures logging in with PM but I can login with Chrome. Same password failure result with autofill and manually typing in the known good password.
This started immediately after upgrading.

Unless something is interfering with the form fields in the browser, this should never happen. Potential malware alert. Alternatively, "security" software intercepting your connection may be at fault, OR an extension you have installed.
Try with extensions disabled, scan your system, check your antivirus for interference, yada yada.

Frankly it is creepy. However it started with the update so I suspect PM rather than a 3rd party.
Running on linux so don't have AV but getting one.

I use Pale Moon on Linux and do online banking with 3 banks also. I have no problems logging in whatsoever, so it's not Pale Moon's fault.

Off-topic:
AV on Linux is totally unnecessary, and actually makes you less secure.
(Link in case anyone questions this.)
