hello, so when i try to create a new password for an account the password keeps showing up on my screen (instead of the dots) im wondering if there is a setting i may have accidently turned off, as i obviously dont want my password showing up everytime. Any help is appreciated.

Sorry i forgot top mention it was the suggested password feature that Firefox has.

I think that this is done to make it possible to edit the suggested password and possibly add symbols and other special characters.

Okay i could be mistaken but i swear that never used to happen before, i did click on a link in a discord and now i think someone may have a backdoor in to my computer, could that be a possible reason?

Also the link you sent said the password would appear by clicking on it, i never did that. It just appears straight away.
