Can i prevent the Password Manager icon from covering up the "Show" button on a login page?

Norton Password Manager - Norton 360 for Windows. Windows 10. Using multiple browsers.

Often, when I go to log in to an online account, the Password Manager icon covers up the option to show the password. I realize in a perfect world there should be no need to see that password, but it's not a perfect world and sometimes I do need to see the password to confirm an issue of one type or another.

Anyone else run into this? Ever find a solution? A search of Norton's help and of the web came up empty. I attached an image to illustrate what I mean.

Thanks

as test: 
Yeah, with Norton Password Manager extension enabled...."show/hide eye" does nada. 
Never thought about show/hide eye with NPM.  Imagine NPM wants password dots.

That's a better graphic than I uploaded. The Show button works on sites where the button is not aligned with the NPM icon, so they don't block it. I just haven't found a way to get around it -- typically when the NPM saved password isn't working and I have multiple entries for the site. Not a huge issue but can be inconvenient.  :-)

Please share site/s example.   
Yeah, I don't know if there is a way to get around it - 
I imagine from time to time you may need to (manually) rebuild site credentials. 
Best practice may be to setup an alternate - backup password manager.  

Caveat:  Norton Password Manager is not my daily rider.

Looks it's a feature, not a bug. :-)   Thanks to all who dove in to help.
