I made a new weibo account that needed an password. I used firefox's auto gen password and selected save password. But firefox is not saving this password, nor is it autofilling or in the saved login section in the settings. I always had this problem. Now i need this password because weibo requires me to use my username instead of my number to get my account back. But I didn't even make an username yet because I can't log in after I made an account. I just need to get this password back.

^: Firefox comes with a feature to generate a secure password.

Note that is usually best to verify that that correct password is stored in the Password Manager, especially with a generated password, as a website can use JavaScript to modify the password field before submitting the form.

Did you search the about:logins page as it is possible that the login is stored for a different domain ? Since this is a generated login, you can't search for the password, but you can search for the username/email.
