Foxycart version 2.0.
I am seeing "new_customer_password: Error: Please enter a password." in my error log and getting contacted by customers stating that they cannot check out. They receive an error as well asking them for a password and there is no place on the checkout form to enter one. This doesn't seem to affect everyone, maybe 10%. If they try enough times (2 - 10), the order eventually goes through without an error.
I had the site set to guest checkout only. It should not require or ask for a password during the checkout process.
Due to this issue, I changed it today to allow guest and customer accounts. I received the error message again after that change. I would prefer the checkout to be guest only.
Every error appears to be a PayPal checkout.
I have received feedback from customers experiencing the issue and they swear they do everything the same and one time it just works.
