Marco, Erin, I think we want this to be added to the 42 release notes. For now, there is nothing about the password changes:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/42.0a2/releasenotes/

Maybe "Improvements on the login/password management"
Could you provide a better wording? Thanks

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]: User facing changes/improvements.
[Suggested wording]: Improvements on the login/password management
[Links (documentation, blog post, etc)]: Are we going to have something here?

Hi Sylvestre, forwarding the needinfo request to Bill Maggs regarding passwords work.

Password Manager (now Login Manager). The main improvements shipping in 42: 

- Improved heuristics saves more of your usernames and passwords in a smoother, cleaner interface 

- Login Manager lets you edit and show all your logins in line, now Copy/Paste your usernames/passwords from the Context menu 

-Migrator imports your passwords to Firefox from Windows Chrome and IE; import anytime from the Login Manager.

Great, thanks.

Added to the release notes with:
"Login Manager improvements:
* Improved heuristics to save usernames and passwords
* Edit and show all logins in line, Copy/Paste usernames/passwords from the Context menu
* Migration imports your passwords to Firefox from Windows Chrome and IE; import anytime from the Login Manager
"

(pretty much the same as yours)

Hmm. I'm not sure what this bug is about. From the comments (or lack of them), it seems to be a metabug, but OTOH, it hasn't got the "meta" keyword.
