When opening the password manager, I think it might be useful to pre-fill the search field with the domain name of the active tab.

For example, if I open the password manager right now, it should directly pre-populate with "" because chances are that's what I'm looking for!

@batata  thank you for sharing your idea with us! I can definitely see the value in this feature, but I also see how it can confuse other users. Not everyone will be noticing that search box is pre-populated and it will cause false alarms "my passwords are gone!". I can imagine a user receiving an email from Firefox Monitor informing them that their bank site had a breach, user clicks on Firefox menu > Passwords and gets a short list of logins filtered to their email website only.

However, there are improvements we can make to make it easier to navigate to logins for specific site. We can think of adding a way to navigate to autocomplete dropdown. This is where most users see their logins on a daily basis.

Another option (and perhaps this is exactly what you are suggesting) is to select login based on the current site, but not filter the list.


What do you think?

@Serghmm, I hadn't thought about all that to be honest, but yeah, having the first login of current site automatically selected would be perfectly fine.

where two or more users have accounts at the same URL it would help if FF (which alreadyoffers a choice of emails)offered passwords(Ithinkyou call them logins) appropriate to the seperate accounts,ie person1 would choose email1, and the password field would be prepopulated with password1- this would avoid the inconvenienceof changing users on a shared machine
