accessibility/password-field-value.html is failing on all bots: <http://webkit-test-results.appspot.com/dashboards/flakiness_dashboard.html#showAllRuns=true&tests=accessibility%2Fpassword-field-value.html>

+CONSOLE MESSAGE: line 15: TypeError: HTMLParagraphElement is not a function (evaluating 'description("This tests that the AX exposed value of a password field is the rendered text.")')
