I'm using windows 7. Firefox version 44.ob1 when I go to options/security to look at my usernames, I no longer have the option to show passwords. they now show up as blacked out dots along the same line. Is this working correctly?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can right-click the password field and click "Edit Password" or double-click the password field to inspect and modify the password. Unfortunately you can no longer see all the passwords. This will be 'refined' in following updates.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Helpful response, which on this occasion has enabled me to do what I wanted to do. But yet again Firefox is being meddled with in uncalled-for ways that make it more awkward to use.

I finally went back and downloaded v43 (a non-beta version) and the password option showed up.
