where's Show Passwords option in 52.7.0?

Hi,

I'm using Thunderbird version 52.7.0 on Ubuntu 16.04. I lost my copy of 
a password for a pop account. A couple of one or two year old references 
on support.mozilla.org say one can view it by:

     Options-Security-Passwords-Saved Passwords
     Show Passwords

I can't find any Options menu or sub-menu or tab in "View settings for 
this account" that has a Show Passwords options. Is there one?

Any answers, comments, or insight appreciated.

I'm on 59 and it's in preferences->privacy & security -> Forms & 
Passwords -> saved logins.

But that's not pop and imap and news server passwords.  I don't think 
you can see them, you can enter them but you can't see what they are. 
IIRC that is.

It's not in "view settings for this account"

All password are listed in: Tools/Options/Security/Password/Saved Password.

For Windows it's "Tools/Options but I believe for Linux it's 
Tools/Preference or something like that.

If not your pop imap and news server passwords then what do you think it 
keeps?
That's exactly what's there.

That is where Firefox stores them. He asked about thunderbird.

someone else already pointed to where they are in Thunderbird (Tools >
Options > Security > Passwords > Show Passwords).

Sorry, I was looking at Firefox not Thunderbird.  Ignore my comment.
And this is a Thunderbird group.  I should know better!
