View dom elements above form appear as field is clicked :

The first 2 hidden fields were created by jquery as I clicked on fields or fields gain focus type=text company name

Note if name attribute is removed, then hidden fields do not appear, however then form serialization can't be used.

Occurs in Chrome & Firefox, no other browsers were tested.

I am seeing the same thing.
We noticed that hidden input elements are added when the value changes in a select.
I can reproduce it in Chrome 24 + Win7 on the demo page for forms:
I change the values of the select with the name "select-choice-min" and inspect the element in the Chrome dev tool.
After a few changes, it looks like in the attached image.


We're looking at fix for this now. Thanks for the report.

@gabrielschulhof gabrielschulhof Navigation: Append value of named button to form data if the form was…
… submitted by a click of that button without resorting to a hidden input. Fixes #5593 and #5590.

Please verify that this is fixed.

Looks like the fix took care of it. I'm no longer seeing duplicated named hidden fields added.

Thanks for all the hard work and great product!
