[B2G][Settings] The Hotspot password can be hidden when being set but when the user goes into the next screen the password is clearly visible and cannot be hidden

Description:
When the user goes into Hotspot settings within internet sharing and sets a password to the wifi, the password in that screen can be hidden, but when the user presses "OK" the password is fully visible and cannot be hidden on that screen.

Repro Steps:
1) Updated Buri 1.2
2) Select Settings.
3) Select Internet sharing.
4) Select Hotspot settings.
5) Set Security to either WPA or WPA2.
6) Type in a password.

Actual:
The password is automatically set to hidden although when the user selects "OK" the password on the next screen is clearly visible and is unable to be hidden at all.

Expected:
If the password is set to hidden, it should never be visible.

Notes:

On Hotspot for Android the password is able to be set to hidden but when it is it's not relieved on any screen.

On Buri 1.1 there is no option to hide the password so there is no confusion as to why the password is hidden on one screen and not the other.

I don't think the testing here right - the option to show a password is not actually relevant to the bug.

When you change your password for your hotspot on a 1.1 device, does the password show up in plaintext on the internet sharing page? A screenshot of the internet sharing page post executing the STR would help clarify this better.

I think this is invalid - the show password function is for showing your password when you providing your hotspot password. It doesn't have anything to do with the viewing of the hotspot creds after you've created your hotspot with creds.
