How can I get the Passwords console page and toolbar to play together?

David, if you don't typically have your tablet on and available when you're running your PC, you might not be very happy with 2FA. It's kind of a PITA. But despite the bad guys just winning a round, I still think it's a good idea.

Sorry, LauraB, but my point entirely, especially since apparently 2FA is now passe and the in thing is 3FA.  Any bets on when 4FA will be de rigeur/flavour of the month.
Apologies, if I sound a little callous, just a bit long in the tooth and have been seeing this sort of ping pong going on for years.
Hopefully, David, can validate your issue and then it can be passed on to the Support Team for sorting.

I wanted to follow up on this thread now that I've been using the password manager for about six months.
Initially, I tried to use both the passwords console page and the PM functions from the browser tool bar simultaneously. I had the problem that updates I made via the toolbar weren't refelect on the console page unless I logged in again--and that was a pain for me because I'd set up two-factor authentication.
After using the system for awhile, I've decided that this behavior is likely by design, and my expectation of different behavior was simply uninformed. After creating a new site using the browser toolbar, there is no reason to go to the console page to double-check the record. One can easily open the site from the toolbar and inspect the record to make sure it is complete. I simply use the add-on now. I haven't even visisted the console page in months.
I've just started using the password manager in other browsers besides Chrome. I notice that site updates I make in browser A aren't available in browser B until I restart that browser B. This time, I'm not surprised by that behavior. :D
