By default the passwords should display as asterisks in lockwise, unless you click the visible eye icon. The Master password will prevent people from seeing your passwords, since it shouldn't show them unless they enter the master password. The best way to protect your passwords though is to use a strong password or log-in method for your phone or computer, such as fingerprint or Face ID.

Can Mozilla update that the visible eye icon deleted like in Chrome so people can't see my password, but autofills the login websites.

On a phone you usually have the Lockwise app and this app is normally protected via fingerprint or application lock. On a laptop or desktop computer and mobile device you can use a master password to prevent access to the passwords in Firefox and if necessary you can cancel a MP prompt by clicking the eye icon on a password and cancel the MP prompt. If you do not use these protections then your passwords aren't protected.
