Hello Adam,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar :

chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul

Press Enter and maximize the window.

When you highlight an entry you can use the "Remove" button at the bottom left, and you will also see a "Remove all" button.

(you could bookmark this page)

Note that a few Firefox updates from now (probably Firefox version 73) this will change to :

"chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xhtml

McCoy's answer works but is there a way we can let the developers know its kind of crap to hide that functionality. There seems to be no reason not to add a remove all passwords option to the main password manager.

Alternatively you can rename/remove logins.json (logins) and key4.db (encryption key) in the profile folder. Clearing key4.db will also remove the the master password, so you will have to create a new master password.

If necessary then you can keep a backup of these two files.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
