On most of the websites I am visiting including gmail. ..where ever there is a login page, it shows a blank password field even after or while typing the password.. but it is logging in... show password option works in some instances. But this has been happening after the last few browser update was made.. 2-3 version ago I believe. Works ok in safe mode. Does not also show saved passwords if already saved.

I only have this problem on my desktop computer at home. It works fine on my laptop and my computers at work. I wonder if it is something in this computer's settings.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting to make changes effective.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

If it works in Troubleshoot Mode and in normal mode with all extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) disabled then try to find which extension is causing the problem by enabling one extension at a time until the problem reappears.

Close and restart Firefox after each change via one of these:

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File -> Exit
  • Mac: Firefox -> Quit Firefox
  • Linux: File -> Quit
