Prevent browser from filling in stored username/password from LoginForm

In my application I use the LoginForm. This works fine but in my application I have a few more username and password fields which all get automatically filled with those saved credentials from the login form. They are supposed to be empty but setting the value=null or "" doesn't help... I guess it's browser related but I was wondering if anybody knows how to prevent this behaviour in Vaadin? I tried changing the element attributes by using autocomplete="off" but it didn't work. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!
