Hi

Could you tell us what that key icon did?

I don't see it present in the UI or in the Customize tab by default.

Could it be an addon which is now disabled?

The key icon opened the password manager. The only way I can open it now is through preferences, so it cannot read new sites to store logins

You were absolutely right. It's back in all its simplicity. I wonder why it left? But that's just curiosity for curiosity's sake.

I'm very grateful
