Why are multiple passwords provided in the dropdown list when signing into a website despite different URL

I have logins for a number of instances of a web-based application and different passwords for each so they can be saved for convenience using the save password feature.

The URL's will start with something like https://enty-dev9.login or https://epsk-dev9.login where values in the URL are different. Whenever I go to one with the same "Dev9", but with a different "enty" or "epsk", the saved password drop down populates for all saved passwords for variations on "Dev9".

I'm wondering why this is? It causes me to select the correct password from a drop down list, rather than the password defaulting to the correct saved password for that specific URL as happens in other browsers.

If I select from the dropdown list and delete the "enty" password from the list when signing into "epsk", then it will also be deleted from the list when I go to "epsk", so it does not work as a solution.

Is there any way I can resolve this?

Thank you.

Would you try this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter.
(ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

signon. includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup

and set its value to false.

Then close and restart Firefox.

'Hope this will work for you.
