Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140923175406

Steps to reproduce:

I am using FF in my office computer and I am using lot of applications which has same username & password (typically my employee id & a password). As a practice, my company request us to change the password every two months. So, it's very hard that whenever I visit an intranet application (after my password is reset) FF is filling the old password and I can't log in. After some time of thinking I came to know the issue, then tried to change the password using Password Manager. But there is no option there, so, now whenever I log in to my applications I am filling the new password and clicking the "Update Password" popup.

Instead of that, a provision to change the desired passwords can be given. Think about it. However it needs lot of security checks to even "Show the password". So, this methodology can be implemented in "Edit/Update Password" too.
