I was trying to re-discover my facebook password. Currently I am automatically logged in on my Firefox browser, and can use my facebook normally. However when I go to Privacy & Security > Saved Logins I cannot see it. I can see several other saved logins that all check out, but not my facebook one.

Running Firefox 88.0, on Ubuntu. Any help is much appreciated.

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

Solid advice, and I have been doing that with other passwords, but in this case the problem is I haven't written down this one. I am logged into facebook constantly on the browser, but cannot see the login info anywhere. I thought this is possible to view. Perhaps I am missing something.

I tried "run a script in Firefox's Browser Console" you suggested, but facebook login again does not appear.

Some login pages allow you to use other login pages to access their websites. One example is Google.

Go to the website. Access your user profile on that site.
