Hi All,

Just recently, I've gotten a slew of alerts from Lockwise referencing a vulnerable password. I believe all of these are based on what's found at haveibeenpwned.com, but when I check the password against that site, it doesn't come up as found. Is this a false positive? I'm running FF 76.0.1 (64-bit).

Lockwise appears to be changing passwords to long "auto-generated" numerical passwords w/o being asked?

Folks:

Been running into a problem that has recurred in the last few days, trying to log into my Kindle account, as I do every day . . . I believe a day or so back I got a drop down message from possibly the "lock" icon on the left end of the address bar?? asking me "Do you want to update your password"?? Since it was logging me in I thought FF was "doing me a favor" . . . so I clicked yes . . . . Then, the next day perhaps, I was again logging in to Kindle via a different OS, so it didn't get the memo on the change . . . logged into Sync . . . and it gave the "you gave us the wrong password"????

I checked a flash drive where I used to have all of my passwords stored, and it should have been right, then I checked FF "logins and passwords" . . . and in Amazon listing was this emongus password that appeared to be auto-generated by FF??? I took the time to get Amazon to send me an "update your password" . . . did that. Then again today, logging into Kindle, same deal, errors out . . . the message doesn't say, "Would you like FF to generate a huge random password for this account?" and again FF appears to have auto-generated a password . . . back from having just changed the password to what I thought was my own . . . FF has gone and changed it to a huge auto-generated line . . . . It used to be that Synce would "store" your passwords, now it appears to be "fixing them"??? possibly as a new "feature" of "Lockwise"???

I'd like FF to "store" the passwords, not try to change them on me, by asking "can we update your password?" Plz help.

Hi,

when choosing an automatically generated password while signing up to a new account the suggested password is always the same until Firefox is restarted. Anyone else experiencing this?

Would be great to have the choice to force Lockwise to generate a new password somehow.

On certain websites, I cannot enter the password, I have to copy it - from Lockwise presumably. It gets copied but then I cannot get back to the login page to continue! This is increasingly frustrating and I give up on trying to log in when I actually know the password. HELP please

Must I create each password for each site I have or can Firefox do that for me?

Once I have a Master Password, is it still pretty stupid to use the same password for all of my sites?
