I need to save a given password, not to generate one

As the title says, I need to save a given password, but when changing the password field type to "saved", all the options for the site become unavailable - including the edit options, basically preventing me from saving a custom password (or even deleting the site entry altogether, since it becomes useless).
This is happening on the desktop (java) version 2.7.10

Any advice?

    the same issue here. I wanted to save a password for a site and as soon as I change the setting for this site to "saved" all the edit options are not available any more. Any advice on how to resolve this issue would be great

    By accident I figured out how to deal with the issue. If the site is selcted and you press the shift key, the options become available again and one can edit the password.

    At first, pressing Shift (or Ctrl, or Alt) did nothing in my case. But once
    I managed to save a login (username), pressing Shift indeed started showing
    the login instead of the password and also activated the edit options. I
    was then able to also store a custom password too.
    Thanks for the hint!

    To the dev: if this behavior is on purpose, the reason behind it escapes
    me. If you find the time and desire, please let us know whether this is a
    bug or not. Thank you!
