I have loaded all of my web sites and existing weak passwords. How can I get Firefox to generate the strong ones I want to use. If I ask to Edit the existing passwords it will not generate a strong one as one might expect.

A "right click" in the space for a new password should create the dialog box for a strong password generation (I think) but my MacBook Air does not have a mouse and the "Shift+F10" does not work.

An alternative "right click" for iOS is sometimes a trackpad double tap, but does not work for firefox.

And YES, I do have the the generate strong passwords turned on !

Broke down and bought a new bluetooth mouse. Paired it to my MacBook Air successfully and the cursor can be moved around, but a right click does not bring up the option menu to select the Generate a Strong Password. - in either Edit Mode for existing passwords or on initial input of a new one.

I guess I just have to manually generate some random letters and numbers, I suppose at least a dozen, maybe more to pass any test for Strong.

Maybe I must go with some other Password Manager ? Anyone with any suggestions ?
