How do you bring back the old password manager this new Lockwise is garbage in comparison when you put in a master password i want all passwords shown i don't have to click each site and type in the password every time.

There was a hack for FF75 but it doesn't work anymore i guess.

You can copy old password manager files to your profile, setup a chrome:// url for it and bookmark it.

Files:
https://github.com/xiaoxiaoflood/firefo ... asswordmgr

I don't follow there is 3 files If i'm not mistaken that store those websites and password. They are already located in the user profile.

Do you have more details on how to set it up.

It would be much easier if this option was just not taken away really but mozilla is on the same path as other big corporations ](*,)

It's needed to follow Instructions here (choose "I'm only interested in scripts"):
https://github.com/xiaoxiaoflood/firefo ... erchromejs

Then save these three files in the path they are (profilefolder\chrome\utils\passwordmgr).

Then you can load old password manager with this URL:
chrome://userchromejs/content/passwordmgr/passwordManager.xhtml

The url I posted won't work for you if you don't follow the instructions. I'm using the old password manager here.
