    Possibly this was a feature change not tried to look it up but at least on the current Release Fx53 there are options to edit the password and username we have not documented that.

    Could you be more specific where these options are located and, if possible, post a screenshot?

    If you're talking about the option to edit saved usernames or passwords shown in the Security Panel -> Saved Logins list by right-clicking a selected site, that's been available for some time. I remember a discussion took place about that awhile back but I can't seem to locate it.

    Yes that is what I was asking about. I have edited usernames or passwords before and was answering a support question & linked to the article and realised the subject was not covered.

    The support question /questions/1159072 was asking how to remove a password but leave the username. I do that myself because a shopping site I use has three rotating password questions.

    I don't rememeber why we decided not to document the right-click context menu options but maybe the discussion was about a different article or topic. In any case, I checked in both Firefox 45 ESR and Firefox 52 on Windows 7 and the context menu options are the same:

    Fx45SavedLogins

    Fx45SavedLogins

    Here's a screenshot for Firefox 52: Fx52SavedLogins

    Fx52SavedLogins

    Do you want to document the feature?
