My wife & I have separate accounts in a fund, the web site is the same but the ID and passwords are different, I can make and save these in password manager but when I click on either one it only goes to the web site and doesn't fill in the data fields, associated with this, is also the issue of being able to ID which of the two logins in the list of available logins, belongs to which person ie how do I distinguish the web site data for a or b so as to make the job easier than manually logging in please? It'd be nice to be able to label these two logins in some way or use coloured text or similar?

When you log in to a website, Firefox will ask you to save the password if it doesn't already have it. Firefox does have the ability to save multiple logins to the same website. It should just be a matter of logging into each account and telling Firefox to save the password each time.

Alternatively, you can make the logins manually in Firefox Lockwise. However, the above method is typically quicker and simpler.

Once both logins and passwords are saved, you should have both accounts listed when you try to login on the specific website. However, Firefox may not automatically fill in the login details when you first open the page, since now there are multiple accounts for it to choose from and it doesn't know which one you want to select. But the two logins should be available in the drop-down list to select.

Currently, there's no way to label or colour-code logins, although this actually could be a very useful feature. The only want to tell the different accounts apart is by the login name, which would be different between the two.

The only other potentially useful alternative I can think of for your situation would be to make two Firefox profile folders: one for you and one for your wife. See Profile Manager - Create, remove, or switch Firefox profiles.

Obviously, that has some pros and cons to it. Some users find it useful. Others do not.

Hope this helps.

Its sounds very good an will suit my needs I believe so thank you Wesley, But about the identities naming/colours because in both counts the sign in is a series of numbers not names, its not so easy to remember whose who with a 9 digit code :)

This solution is incorrect. When one goes to Lockwise to manually add a new Saved Login using a domain that already has a domain - it will not let you save a second login under the same domain. You get a message stating: "An entry for domainname.com with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"
