In my Firefox security settings, the ability to show my passwords has disappeared. How to I reset it to it's original format?

Chosen solution

hi donmilbre, in newer versions of firefox you can still access single passwords, by double-clicking on a particular concealed entry.

As of Firefox 43 the term "Saved Passwords" was replaced by the term "Saved Logins", and that has a number of changed features for Passwords / Logins.

Do you see the "Saved Logins ..." button in the Security tab of Preferences?

Note that double-clicking name and password also works in the current release (43) to edit this item.

Note that this new design is still in progress.
