Password view/hide button in password manager is inversed

Kind of a small bug, more of a qol one.

note: I am using mac, i don’t know if this is also a bug on windows

also for some reason when searching up the correct tag for this, searching “bug” comes up with nothing, but searching for “bug” in the main page comes up with bug.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Open Brave settings (command + , on mac)
  3. Go to auto-fill
  4. Open password manager
  5. Click the 3 dots next to any password
  6. Click “Edit Password”
  7. Click the view button

Actual result:
The symbol has changed to hidden, and the password is in view

Expected result:
The symbol has changed to view, and the password is in view

Reproduces how often:

Brave version:
v 1.45.123

Reproducible on current live release:

Additional information:
I’m using macOS Monterey Version 12.3 and m1 chip
