I want to request an option to let passwords be visible (rather than showing *******) while typing them. This would help poor typists who do not need the security of password masking. A status bar icon can be used as a warning/reminder, as well as a way to quickly re-enable masking when desired.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

3.
There is an extension for this at AMO: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/462/

This is still needed, as of FF6, and the various addons cannot emulate it completely.
