Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up an account on TB. and save the password.
2.Go to 'Edit' > 'Account Settings' > 'Remove Account'
4.Go to 'Edit' > 'Preferences' > 'Privacy' >'Passwords' > 'Edit Saved Passwords'
The password of the deleted account is not deleted.
the password should be deleted.
Does upstream has a bug for this issue as well?
Yes. found this bug on Mozilla Foundation
Bug 255948 - Stored password are retained after the account is deleted.
We believe that this bug is more appropriate to be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
