Firefox autofills password field with incorrect password. How do I fix this?
OS: Zorin OS 15 Firefox Version 68.0.1 (64-bit)
I have a website that I use and I have 2 accounts if that matters.
When I select an account to log in with Firefox overwrites my saved password with I long string of letters and numbers for some reason.
What is going on?
How do I fix this?

If you are using to accounts on a website, and both login/passwords are saved to the Password Manager, its possible one or both entries are wrong.
Type about:preferences#security<enter> in the address bar. Look under Logins,
Note: For Firefox v56+ its; about:preferences#privacy Look under Forms & Passwords +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Turn on Remember Logins. To check the passwords you have listed, press Saved Logins.
Coffmn, In addition to what FredMcD suggested, this article may help:
It is possible that the website copies the password you entered to another hidden field and modifies the visible password field to prevent a browser from storing this password. You can create a password block exception to prevent the website from modifying the stored password. You can double-click the password in the Password Manager to edit the stored password and store the correct password.
