Firefox Password Manager
I've been using Firefox for a long time, several years, and recently have been accessing some feature that looks like a password manager on my laptop, called Lock <something>--actually I'm not sure what it's called, because I can't seem to bring it up on its own to locate my password info.
I believe in password managers, and I'm trying to move over there, but I've run into a big snag on my mobile Android device... I have no idea how to bring up my Gettr account on my Android because I don't know where the password that I configured for my Gettr account on my laptop is located. I know it's inside the Firefox password manager somewhere... then I see Lockwise is no longer being supported.
Ultimately I want to synch whatever Firefox's latest password manager is to my Android, so that it functions like "whatever Firefox's latest password manager is" for my laptop. I'd like to synch my bookmarks, too. Can anyone point me to some simple instructions? Thanks. I'm using a primary password now for Firefox on my laptop. My email address is ...

This is the name for the new Password Manager. It works much the same as the old one but with added features.

Thank you, Fred. Why do I see messages that Lockwise is no longer supported by Firefox as of December 13, 2021? I'm trying to install Lockwise to my Android, but am not finding it. If it's part of the Firefox for Android, how would I access it independently or link it automatically to my password entry screens on my Android?
