Currently you can copy the password (bullets) via the doorhanger when visibilityToggle;false. I think we should completely disable copying in the password field whenever visibilityToggle;false. Users might get the incorrect impression and think they're actually copying the password in bullet form but in actuality they're just copying the bullet characters.

STR:

- ensure signon.rememberSignons.visibilityToggle;false
- login into any website
- once the doorhanger appears, select the password field and copy (I used the keyboard shortcut)
