Missing "Saved Passwords" access in version 43.0.1. I need access to this, and wouldn't have updated without copying the data if I knew
I updated from version 42 to version 43.0.1, and now there's no "saved passwords" button under Security. I need access to this list and wouldn't have updated without copying the list if I had first been informed of such a drastic change. I have 2 different accounts at the same site which can't be combined, and normally it's no problem to confirm which one fits with each via "saved passwords". Also sometimes "saved passwords" saves the old password while it adds a newer one. I've had FF use the wrong older password. I changed a password (due to having forgotten the old one), using an Apple device and Safari browser. But FF still has the old password. Is there anyway 1. I can have a "saved passwords" button again with this version 2. can revert to an older version of FF and get my passwords safely once again using the "saved password" button 3. Get access to the "saved passwords" section once again, save a master copy of the list?

Do you have a Saved Logins button? New name for "Saved Passwords button in Firefox 43. Silly change for that button, IMO.
You would need to delete the existing username / password and save the changed password all over again.
This extension allows you to edit saved passwords. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saved-password-editor/
You do not need an extension to edit the user name or the password.
You can right-click a specific line and click "Copy/Edit Username" or "Copy/Edit Password". You need to have the passwords visible to have "Edit Password" enabled. Double-click the Username or Password field to inspect and modify this field.
You can resize various pop-up windows like you get for cookies and passwords if you place the mouse pointer in the bottom right corner (not sure how this works on a Mac).
For passwords and cookies you can consider to open the Password Manager and the Cookie Manager via "Tools > Page Info > Security" also accessible via the Site Identity Button (globe/padlock) at the left end of the location/address bar.
