Description Andre Robatino 2008-08-26 00:31:55 EDT
Description of problem:
At present, the default password length can only be set globally, and this value has to be set low enough to work on most sites, which may not be strong enough for all of them.  If the "Edit Password" window for a given site had an option to change the password length for that site only, then if that site specifies its maximum password length, one could easily generate a password of that exact length for that site only, without having to first go to the Preferences to temporarily increase the global default value.
