I like the Firefox auto generated passwords feature, but I noticed that the passwords only include alpha-numeric characters. It seems to me they would be more secure if they also include special characters. e.g. ! @ # $ % ^ & * Is there a way to include these in Firefox auto-generated passwords?

Firefox doesn't have the feature to set what set of characters to use for the generated password. This might be added to a future update. You will have to edit the suggested password and add those special characters yourself before saving the password to Lockwise.
