How do I edit the ID and password feed.

Posted

The password feed doesn't enter my ID on a two page login screen. I know it can but I need to edit the feed. How do I edit the feed?

If this username and password is stored in the Firefox Password Manager then you can double-click the name and password entries to edit these fields.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security: Logins & Passwords: "Saved Logins" -> "Show Passwords"

Hi DickMorrison, I'm not sure what you want to edit. If it's saved login, that's easy, but if it's a new login you want to add by hand, I don't think there is a way to do that.

To update a saved login, go to:

  • Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
  • Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
  • Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
  • Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it

In the left column, click "Privacy & Security".

Then on the right side, scroll down to the Logins & Passwords section and click the "Saved Logins" button. Then click the "Show Passwords" button. Firefox will ask for your Master Password* if you've set that up.

* If you're not familiar: Use a Master Password to protect stored logins and passwords
