My Contact Us page, Password Reset, Forgotten password and possibly a few other pages are having their page title overriten to say "Customer Login". I have a feeling that the culprit is located here,...


    protected function _prepareLayout()
        $this->pageConfig->getTitle()->set(__('Customer Login'));
        return parent::_prepareLayout();

My layout files seem to be ignored and the title does not actually change. For example,

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <title>Forgot Your Password</title>
        <referenceBlock name="root">
            <action method="setHeaderTitle">
                <argument translate="true" name="title" xsi:type="string">Password forgotten</argument>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Forgotpassword" name="forgotPassword" template="Magento_Customer::form/forgotpassword.phtml">
                <container name="form.additional.info" as="form_additional_info"/>

does not actually do anything

I was able to find some hints on this stack post but it did not seem to do the trick.

I was able to find my answer by looking at a couple different posts. I went ahead and followed This Post and created my class and saving it in MyVendor\MyModule\Block\Form as Login.php


namespace MyVendor\MyModule\Block\Form;

use Magento\Customer\Block\Form\Login as BaseLogin;

class Login extends BaseLogin
     * @return $this
    protected function _prepareLayout()
        return $this;

then edited my di.xml in MyVendor\MyModule\etc to include

<preference for="Magento\Customer\Block\Form\Login" type="MyVendor\MyModule\Block\Form\Login" />

More information on the cause of the issue can be found on this stack post
