I followed these instructions and after receiving the email to reset password, I clicked and it went right back to my already signed-in Kos page....i.e., I never got a prompt to add a new password twice.

Go to your user profile page (pulldown menu upper right). If you still can’t find it, or are on a phone, the edit profile link is of the form /user/(username)/edit. (You can also get to your profile by clicking on your linked username, as for example in a comment.)
Click edit profile near the top
view and if necessary update your email address.
scroll to the bottom and click “Save”. Now that you know your email is up to date:
(Open a private/incognito window, or in a different browser than your normal logged in one, if you're not sure that your email will work.)
Click "log in" and when you get that screen, click "Forgot Password"
Enter your email address, the one attached to your account, in the box.
Check your email. There will be a link for resetting the password. Click it, or copy the link into your alternate browser window.
