When using passwords containing the dollar sign "$" Firefox won't autofill or login correctly

I'm encountering this problem: I have a few passwords which contain "$" and Lockwise refuses to save the entire password after the symbol (i.e.: "123456$abc" will be saved as "123456$"). Additionally, when I manually correct this by editing the password in Lockwise, then go back to the website to log in, autofill won't fill the password in automatically. After filling in the password and clicking "enter", Firefox asks if I want to save the updated password; when I unhide the password in this popup it has once again removed all characters following the $ (again the password appears as "123456$" instead of "123456$abc"). I'm stuck in a loop attempting to login to a few sites where this continually happens. Going to these sites in Chrome or Safari does not recreate the problem, so I assume it's not the actual websites but how Firefox handles "$" in passwords?
