hello, Firefox is auto-saving the correct site password but then when I submit the login it automatically recoverts it to a different shorter password so I can't login. I have tried clearing my cookies and cache and even turning auto-fill off but still have this issue of it autofilling the wrong password regardless if the right password for the site is stored or if auto-fill is off..

Some websites update/modify the password field before submitting the form for some reason (maybe they want to disrupt storing the password).

You can possibly edit the password in Lockwise and create a login block exception for this origin (protocol and hostname) to prevent Firefox from updating the stored password.
