When logging on to a website it used to be possible to show the current password that is automatically being input. That is no longer possible it seems so now you have to search the passwords for that website to locate it and then display it that way. But many times the current website is not saved under an obvious name. This makes it next to impossible to locate what used to be right in front of you (current website logon password). The worst is my current case where you lose your gmail password and try to locate it with a search of the passwords but since gmail address is the user name for 100's of websites there are 100's of results to try to find the gmail password. When it comes to Microsoft website there is zero results to Microsoft in the Firefox password search even though Firefox easily logs me in. Why did Firefox stop allowing the user to see the current password being input to websites. if they did not stop that access then I do not know how to do it anymore. Used to be a simple right click on the password field. Then you could go direct to the password manager location of that website.

When being prompt for the primary password, I noticed that I can rapidly and endlessly type random combinations and press enter. There seems to never be any delay between wrong entering of passwords. So it seems that even the most primitive application that would try all possible combinations rapidly, will break the password in few hours for the most. This does not even require any knowledge in hacking. Is this correct or am I missing something? If that is the case, then primary password is only worth when keeping the computer unattended for no more than few minutes.

I use Thunderbird to access emails on several platforms including my PlusNet account. I changed a password recently on PlusNet to one that included the characters *, & and ^. Thunderbird then refused to send any emails from this account. Plusnet help were no use. I tried changing the password again to one with no special characters and things are back working. Is there a known problem with one of the three characters I used or is there a more general issue? many thanks Malcolm

The great thing about DNS over HTTPS is that it's done at Application Layer. However, Firefox doesn't leverage this - producing a boilerplate response when DNS response failed.

I'm using NextDNS with P O R N category blocked, with https://dns.nextdns.io/XXXX as my TRR (and network.trr.mode is "3")

When NextDNS does its job and responds with Server failed, Firefox should be able to produce an informative response to the user, rather than "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at P O R N .com." which is more about connectivity than DNS failure.

Feature Request: Firefox be more informative DoH DNS failures?

Stretch Feature Request: if network.trr.mode is "2", Firefox passively notifies user that preferred method failed.

Suppose I'm reviewing financial documents in PDF from my broken in Firefox. They include highly sensitive personal information and when I'm done looking at them I want to close that PDF view tab and know the data's not hanging around in some temporary file store.

Other than purging my browsing history every time I do this, is there a setting for this?
