Is there a way to show only one password and can you go back to not showing passwords after showing them?

Posted

I would like to show my passwords but do not want them to keep showing. Can you show them for a time and then go back to not showing them?

On the security page, there is a spot to show all passwords. Can you only show one and if you show them can you go back to where they are hidden? Thanks for the reply.

On 'Security' => under 'Logins' you can uncheck both boxes, and under 'Saved Logins' : if there are any there, you can click 'Remove (All)'

Current Firefox releases show a list of all saved usernames (and passwords) when you are on a page with a login form. There is no way to limit what you see when the Password Manager is enabled. You would have to disable the Password Manager and copy username and password from the Password Manager window.

  • Options/Preferences -> Security: Logins: "Remember logins for sites"

You can open a standalone window that shows the Password Manager.

  • click the Control Center 'i' icon at the left end of the location/address bar
  • click the arrow to expand the security message
  • click "More Information" to open "Tools -> Page Info"
  • click "Security" to inspect cookies and passwords in a standalone window
    click "View Saved Passwords" to inspect the passwords for the domain in the currently selected tab
