Can you apply a name to a saved lockwise entry?

Logins and passwords are sorted alphabetically by the URL. I would like to be able to give the entry a name that makes it easier to find. For example, the Website for my bank is rather than the name of the institution. Other entries may be more obscure. I think Lockwise would be easier to use with this feature. I am trying to see if I can transition from a different password manager add-on. At this point, it was much easier to use the other add-on for both sites/passwords AND for bookmarks. Everything was in one place and I could apply names that made sense.

You can't add a name to a logins entry.
You can search for host name and username and you can search for password if you do not use a master password.

You should be able to use the URL as a search filter: olb.xxxxx
Just try to see what works best.

Thank for your reply. That really doesn't address what I'd like to see. I suspect this is something that would have to be added to Lockwise, so here it is as a suggestion...

Although that is currently not a feature of Firefox Lockwise, it is something that may be included in a future update.

This is my suggestion too. I use Dashlane to save my passwords. I'm new to Firefox. It's a bit annoying and time consuming to have to run through the list of passwords in Lockbox rather than be able to scroll down an alphabetized list of titles.

I agree this would be a great enhancement. I use Roboform currently. Not being able to change the name of the Login might be a dealbreaker - too difficult to remember what obscure website addresses are for... I'm using this for work, so the logins are for corporate sites, but have some strange URLs.

Yes I agree, this should be the most basic thing to include in a password manager.

I started moving from Roboform to Lockwise today, until I realized that I could not change the names of the entries! For reasons others have stated above, this is a deal breaker for me. Hope that this will be changed soon.

I'll add my vote to this enhancement. Finding no workaround to better organize Lockwise, stumbled upon "Safe-In-Cloud" which DOES have a working add-in to Firefox. This password manager is inexpensive compared to ones like LastPass ($36 year, started at $12 and increased each year by that amount) and which created a nightnare when trying to use the Android version, locked me out even though I had my master password memorized and backed up. SafeInCloud has been around since about 2010 and has 256 (AES), permits custom templates for "cards" in a clean interface, supports and measures password strength, generates new ones and alerts you to any existing dupes or weak ones. On GooglePlay it has a 4.8 rating with 23,651 reviews and uses encrypted sync with your choice of cloud service. Excuse me for the length of of this reply, but SafeInCloud Pro is $7.99 for life on up to five devices and any platform. It will work until Lockwise is easier to navigate. It is simple to sync Lockwise from this app.

Didn't mean to post an endorsement, but it is the only thing I can think of to help for now. Wish I had the programming chops to contribute in a meaningful way. My spare cash to Mozilla Foundation does assuage my guilt a bit.
