Not seeing the "generate password" option in Safari

edited January 13 in Mac

Hi all, I just downloaded 1password on my Mac and added the extension to my Safari. I see the 1password extension in my toolbar and I added in a few accounts to my 1password vault, but when I go to these accounts and try to change my password (using the 1password generated password option) it doesn't work. I'm not see that "generate password" option. Am I missing a step? Any help would be much appreciated!

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: 7
OS Version: MacOS Big Sur 11.1
Sync Type: Not Provided

    If you're on the site and you click the 1Password extension in Safari, do you see the box "+ generate password"? It's on the right-hand side near the top, just below the search box in the extension. This will generate a new password, and when you're ready, click the "save and copy" button. Paste (if needed) the new password into the new field and the confirmation field. When 1Password prompts you to update your existing login, be sure to update your login.

    This set of instructions on changing passwords may help.
