Mac Netscape password fields

I apologize if this is well known, but the thread about IE password
inputs reminded me of a somewhat more serious problem in Netscape for
MacOS (v. 4.77, and at least some earlier ones):

  access a page with <input type="password" ...>
  type something in that field
  print

The "secret" string prints in clear text.
