Are there settings like a checklist for Uppercase, Lowercase, Numbers, Symbols, Length ? Sometimes I want a more readable password other times sites aren't accepting a password with/without some of these defined. Also why isn't there a button in the "about:logins" (or a normal dropdown context menu item) to just generate a password in any field, because sometimes it doesn't work for some fields - like changing a password, or I need to generate it separately.

Agreed. Many websites have specific do's and don'ts for passwords. I would like to know how many characters are passwords generated by the password manager? And I would like the option to choose how many characters my passwords have.
