When a password field is edited, and the dimissed doorhanger shown, the anchor element should get a blue "attention" highlight

This is currently driven by the notifySaved argument on the promptToShowPassword / promptToChangePassword LoginManagerPrompter methods, but that argument is also used to trigger the "saved" toast when we auto-save a login for generated passwords. Teasing these functions apart probably means updating the signature to use a jsval options object so we can pass separate flags as properties for attention, notifySaved, dismissed, etc.

Why? Isn't that going to conflate the meaning of the blue icon? Right now blue means a login was "automatically saved" but that wouldn't be the case here.

The goal here is to highlight the new/changed dismissed doorhanger (the key icon in the address bar.)
Using the same blue attention color we use for notifying when an login has been auto-saved might be confusing, so some other visual treatment - a small animation or different highlight color - would be good.
