Show login metadata in password manager UI Landed Landed Landed On Track Firefox 32 Justin Dolske Andrei Vaida Signed-off



The Login Manager has been recording various metadata for a while, but this data was not made visible in the UI. Given the recent Heartbleed attack, it has been decided that specific metadata fields will be unhidden by default and displayed in the Password Manager's UI, with an option to unhide a couple of other similar fields.

The following metadata fields were introduced in the Password Manager's UI:

  • First Used - hidden by default
  • Last Used - visible by default
  • Last Changed - visible by default
  • Times Used - hidden by default

Other fields that are visible by default in the Password Manager:

  • Site
  • Username


The Password Manager can be accessed by following either:

Menu Panel > Options > Security > "Saved Passwords..."


about:preferences page > Security > "Saved Passwords..."


  • Main tracking bug: Bug 998081
  • Other recent fixes affecting the Password Manager:
    • Bug 1019885 - Saved password exceptions dialog shows "[object Object]" - verified fixed
    • Bug 853549 - Remove main-thread I/O from password manager - verified fixed
