    Can't save changes to Administrator user

    For some reason I can't save changes to the Administrator user account. I can open and change every thing, but nothing happens when I click save, not even an error.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance,

    I've also encountered this, when working with the embedded database. After a few tries it all went ok and the changes were saved.

    For some reason, if I change the login name to something other than admin, I can save alright. But changing it back to admin prevents me from saving again.

    Maybe this is for some kind of security reason, that they want to prevent people from using admin as the administrators login name.

    Anyway, a message about this in the speech bubble when trying to save, would have been nice. Just if anyone any of the Umbraco dev's are listening in on this thread ;-)

    I recall encoutering this in the past. If I recall correctly it would only update the record if the password was also being changed.

    Yep, Paul is right. It's because your browser is auto-filling one of the password fields. If you clear the textbox with the auto-filled password, you can save the user just fine.
