'Forget About This Site' functionality in history pane, prone to misunderstanding
In the history pane which could be opened by Ctrl + H shortcut, 'Forget About This Site' functionality creates impression to clear all history about that afformentioned site but it removes everything about the site including the passwords.
I understand the perspective about 'forgetting' is different that i mention above but when you are in action like removing the passwords from the password manager you should clearly ask the user about this action.
This functionality really bothered me and i try to disable it and i came accross with 'DisableForgetButton' policy which i thought that i would disable this feature and keep me safe from unintenional 'Forget About This Site' click in history pane but it wont.
As a conculision; 1- I think Firefox should ask about the action with this critical level which is deleting the saved passwords in password manger 2- If you are not able to ask about this action you should allow users or system managers to control this ability.

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.
If you need to file a bug report or feature request for Firefox and other Mozilla products, see File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.
Thank you, I am going to try to report this from the related section.
Note that if you use the Primary Password then you can make sure to logout beforehand by canceling a PP prompt and also cancel the prompt to enter the Primary Password after you click "Forget About This Site" to prevent losing the passwords for this origin.
