Comment (by stuartshields):


 I noticed this as well. It seems confusing that when clicking on the
 Generate Password button, clicking Show to show the password and then
 clicking Cancel, and then clicking Generate Password button again (second
 time), it shows the same password. The button is misleading, it should
 either be "Show Generated Password" or "Generate Password" and it
 generates a brand new password. When using Password generators I find that
 I am clicking "Generate Password" a few times to get one that has possibly
 not been used before.
