How do I make adjustments in PASSWORD MGR on sites that require that I update my password frequently?

Some websites (banks, pharmacies, etc) require periodic and frequent updates of passwords for security reasons. If a password is stored in Password Manager and such an occasion arises, how is this handled? For example, when this password is changed on the bank from simonsays1 to simonsays2 does this affect the password for ALL accounts using the simonsays1 or will that change the account only for the bank while leaving all other accounts the same at simonsays1 ? As you can imagine, this would make Password Manager not as convenient as it might seem. Or, is it possible to include the passwords that never change in Password Manager and exclude those-like the one in this example-that will change frequently? Thank you.

hello Sooner, in essence what the password manager will save is a combination of the site you're on (bank.example.org), your username & password.

if it detects that you're on bank.example.org which has a stored password and entering your usual username but a different password, it will ask you accordingly if the stored password for this account on bank.example.org should be replaced with the one that you have just entered. this in return will only have an effect on the username-password combo on bank.example.org and not on other sites where you might have the same username (& hopefully different passwords!)...
