try to set a new password in the User Control Panel
When I try to change my password using the MDN User Control Panel > Profile > Edit account settings, I am told that "The current password you entered is incorrect.". I am able to change my email address on this form, using the same current password, but I cannot get it to accept a new password. I think it needs fixing.
Hey Christopher. A bug has been opened for this issue:
Workaround: Change your password through the wiki account page (https://developer.mozilla.org/Special:Preferences), not the forum account page. There are two logins (FYI single-sign-on is planned), and the wiki account always overwrites the forum account.
Sounds like this problem is related to this one: http://mdn.uservoice.com/forums/51389-mdn-website-feedback-http-developer-mozilla-org/suggestions/1171377-fix-the-edit-account-settings-page-process
