Why am I being asked to enter my email login information while trying to reset my Facebook password?

We need to make sure that this Facebook account belongs to you before we let you reset your password.
If you have an email with Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo! listed on your Facebook account, you may have the option to reset your password immediately.
Instead of waiting for an email with a special code or reset link, you can enter your email login information to reset your password.
