Currently when you use the browser extension to auto-fill fields you don’t know where these information will be injected in advanced.
It would be nice to have the fields found by the extension to be highlighted.
When you open the browser extension to check for credentials, it will highlight the field where the information will be injected by e.g. changing the border color.
That way the user can directly see whether the information will be injected correctly or he/she/it should copy them and inject them manually.
This will also prevent password leakage in cases where the password is injected in the wrong field and the form sends automatically.
An example can be found in the gopass bridge extension:
