      Description

      When using the forgot password tool, it performs a check using case-sensitive strings when using PgSQL because using WHERE $field=$value in PgSQL checks for case-sensitivity. I am unable to replicate using MySQL as MySQL does not check for case-sensitivity when using WHERE $field=$value.
