Lockwise won't store all of a localhost url, and therefore fails all login attempts

I run windows 10 64bit and xampp 64 bit for website development on my desktop. I have various websites under the xampp htdocs subfolders and each subfolder has the index.html or index.php or admin.php default start files. So, the urls would be localhost/web1/startfolder/index.php or localhost/web2/startfolder/index.php, each with a different set of username/passwords. Firefox 76.01 and lockwise will not allow me to store the complete urls, and therefore any attempt to login to any of my localhost urls fail, where as I can login with Chrome or Opera. What setting have I missed to allow this, or is it a bug? Or do I go back to Chrome?

firefox/lockwise offers to generate a random password to create logins. Which is of course very useful.

Except that in my experience for a lot of sites it does not work. If a try to change my password on such a site to a random one, the context menu only offers 'fill password', it does not offer 'use generated password' and hence 'use securely generated password' is not reachable.

I was trying to work around this issue by creating a new login from the about:logins page but it seems you can't generate a password from that page either

To be clear for quite some accounts it all works as intended, so no problem in my setup, but quite regularly I am stuck without a way to generate a random password.

I need to add notes to certain passwords as some of the sites need more login-data than just username and password or in the case ofe other sites some have multiple passwords for different areas of the same site and it would be nice to be able to label which password is for what area exactly.

Is there some setting that I'm missing or if not I feel it should be implemented.

Lockwise appears to be changing passwords to long "auto-generated" numerical passwords w/o being asked?

Folks:

Been running into a problem that has recurred in the last few days, trying to log into my Kindle account, as I do every day . . . I believe a day or so back I got a drop down message from possibly the "lock" icon on the left end of the address bar?? asking me "Do you want to update your password"?? Since it was logging me in I thought FF was "doing me a favor" . . . so I clicked yes . . . . Then, the next day perhaps, I was again logging in to Kindle via a different OS, so it didn't get the memo on the change . . . logged into Sync . . . and it gave the "you gave us the wrong password"????

I checked a flash drive where I used to have all of my passwords stored, and it should have been right, then I checked FF "logins and passwords" . . . and in Amazon listing was this emongus password that appeared to be auto-generated by FF??? I took the time to get Amazon to send me an "update your password" . . . did that. Then again today, logging into Kindle, same deal, errors out . . . the message doesn't say, "Would you like FF to generate a huge random password for this account?" and again FF appears to have auto-generated a password . . . back from having just changed the password to what I thought was my own . . . FF has gone and changed it to a huge auto-generated line . . . . It used to be that Synce would "store" your passwords, now it appears to be "fixing them"??? possibly as a new "feature" of "Lockwise"???

I'd like FF to "store" the passwords, not try to change them on me, by asking "can we update your password?" Plz help.
