If, when you have more than one stored name/password combination, you fail to
change your password after selecting the account to change (for instance, if the
server rejects the change for being too similar to a previous password), the
first account you selected is removed from the list of available accounts.  In
fact, each time you try to select an account to change and it fails, that
selected user ID is removed from the list.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to change a password on a web site
2. When prompted to select an account to update with the new password, select one
3. Enter something to make the password change fail
4. Attempt to change the password again
5. Observe that, when prompted, the previously selected account is no longer an
option to select

Actual Results:  
Unable to update password on account

Expected Results:  
Allowed reselection of previously selected account
