I'm not sure when lockwise went from an optional add on to "you know what I'm just going to run myself anyway" but I already have a password manager and I want to disable Lockwise. Every article or help post I find insists Lockwise is an Addon but it's not in that list and when i go to the Logins & Passwords tab I can see what Lockwise is doing but I can't do anything about it let alone switch it off.

I've been using Lastpass for years and I'm more than happy with it and I find Lockwise competing with Lastpass and pushing itself to the front of the queu when entering passwords on sites and I don't want that.

How do I disable it please?

Lockwise replaced the previously used Password Manager in Firefox 70 and newer and is a builtin component that can't be removed (in Firefox 67-69 is was available as an optional extension). If you do not want to use it then disable the 'remember password' feature.
