NOT suggesting saved passwords (field text instead of password)

hi, some websites lately have password inputs set as "text" in the html and that confuses firefox into NOT suggesting saved login/password for those fields.

i inspected the password field in question and this is the correspondent html:

​<input autocomplete="off" id="PasswordInput_68.39270255653231" class="ant-input false" placeholder="Password" maxlength="32" pxunit="14" buttonwidth="100" timeformat="YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss" store="[object Object]" langlocale="[object Object]" type="text" value="">

btw, if i change the type to "password" it DOES suggest the saved login/password.

PS : the website in question is a login page for a dahua XVR.

In the past we have seen more cases of unusual login forms that cause Firefox not to recognize username or password fields as such and thus doesn't offer to fill them (i.e. no "Use Saved Login/Password" in the context menu). Possible workarounds are modifying attributes via a bookmarklet or script injection extension or using a Password Manager extension that works with such a login form.

Setting a password field to type="text" would cause the password to show as plain text and not obfuscated with bullets.
