My google account has informed me that some of my information has been found in data breaches on the dark web. This included a list of information found. Where a password has been compromised, the list gives the 1st 3 characters of the password followed by ******. No website information is given. My query ..... Is there a way of searching my passwords held in Firefox to find this password so that I can change it? Firefox stores my passwords, how do I find a particular password without knowing the website it is associated with?

Three dots > settings > Logins and passwords > Saved logins. You have to check all entries, for reveal password tap on "eye icon" on the right, for direct access to site on which you have saved password in question tap "box with arrow" icon on the right side.

This told me what I already knew. It didn't answer my problem. Bots are a waste if time!

You can only search passwords in desktop Firefox.

Install Firefox on a computer, then sync user data.

If you only got notified recently perhaps the breach was from one of the recent sites mentioned in https://monitor.mozilla.org/breaches

You cannot do automated posts on this forum software so no bots here.
