Firefox returning exact same secured generated password for multiple sites and logins

more options

For some reason, I'm getting the exact same "securely generated password" on multiple sites and logins.

Nothing I do (neither right-click nor anything else) causes the password to regenerate.

For some sites, it works perfectly. For example, when I signed up for here, it happily generated a new password.

However, if I go over to GitHub, for example, and attempt to change my password, I get *exactly* the same (old) password over and over with no way to regenerate.

Perhaps it's a change vs new issue?

Or am I simply doing something wrong?

Thanks.

(OS X 10.14.6 with Firefox 78.0.2)

That is strange, like it's actually telling you your current password? I'm not sure that was the intended behavior. Do you have a few minutes to search in Bugzilla to see whether it has been raised as an issue: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

Ayup, known bug. And it's a year old.  :(
