Bug Fix:  Invalid credentials error when using saved logins in Chrome and some browsers (HOC3-12738)

Some users have encountered the error message "Invalid Credentials" when logging in to HandsOn Connect.  This was occurring in some cases, when for example, user was saving their login information in the chrome browser, and allowing the browser to fill in their username and password (as opposed to entering it manually).   We've addressed the circumstances in which this has occurred so far, but its possible that using auto-login with certain browsers may also trigger this error.   Please report if this happens to you or a user, and indicate the Browser and Version Number and Operating System.   The problem can generally be resolved by manually entering your login info rather than allowing the browser to auto-populate your credentials.
