@chelo_xl I don’t have a proper answer right now. The proper answer for the future would be a “system” wake lock: github.com/w3c/screen-wak….

marvinhagemeist When a site’s password rules are so stupid that even browser vendors include hacks to work around them 😅

Looking at the list of sites reveals even more madness:
