The full website link has /users/login, but when I checked the saved passwords, the link stops before the first /, its just websitename.com, instead of wesbsitename.com/users/login, and I suspect the full link not being save is whats causing it not to show up. Is there any way to brute force it to show up?

That is how saving a login works in Firefox, only the origin (protocol and hostname) is stored and not a possible path, so you distinguish logins for various paths. You would need a third-party password manager to get support for this.

If "Use Saved Password" is missing in the right-click context menu then this means that Firefox doesn't recognize the fields as part of a login form. You would have to check both fields in the Inspector like I posted above to see what attributes those fields have. The username field usually has type="text", but can have an autocomplete attribute with a value that Firefox doesn't recognize/support. The password field should have a type="password" attribute to make Firefox recognize it as a password field and should appear directly under the username field in the DOM tree with no other input fields in between.
