I do not see any odd behavior. Can you elaborate on what you see?

Ext.create('Ext.form.Panel', {
title: 'Contact Info',
width: 300,
bodyPadding: 10,
renderTo: Ext.getBody(),
items: [{
xtype: 'textfield',
name: 'name',
inputType: 'password',
fieldLabel: 'Name',
allowBlank: false
}, {
xtype: 'textfield',
name: 'email',
fieldLabel: 'Email Address'

we are using inputType:'password' and the emptyText : 'Enter Password' displayed as DOTS "." in IE Browser.

we can read the emptyText in Chrome Browser.

please see the difference in attached image.47129

Gotcha .. emptyText ..

Let me see if there is a workaround. Until then it is considered a feature ;)

This seems to be the behavior for password inputs for IE. We do not control this.

Is see there was also a report of this for an earlier version of FF as well: (but fixed in later versions)

Seems to be corrected in IE10+, but happens in IE8/9
