Automatic email and password field filling stopped working
Firefox for Android 110.0.1
I have created a simple HTML login form (code pasted below). In the past it worked perfectly using Firefox on Android but now when I tap inside the email field the Suggested logins link appears above my keyboard as normal and, when I click on it, a list of suggested logins is presented as normal. If I tap on one of the suggested logins (A URL with ...... underneath representing the password) I am taken back to the login form but the suggested login has not populated the email and password fields which are still empty. So, I have to type or copy and paste the email and password into the fields in order to be able to login.
I have pasted the code below.

I see in my previous post that my h1 element would have been better left out so "Login" has been rendered as an actual heading. Sorry about that!
I should add that the code I posted in my question works fine on Firefox 110.0 on my Desktop. Also it works on Chrome on the same Android device it does not work on using Firefox.
For web development questions I recommend that you ask the experts at:
I reset my android phone to factory settings and reinstalled Firefox. That solved the problem and then a few days later it came back. It really makes Firefox almost unusable for me which is a pity.
This is something that our developers are aware of and are looking into. You can follow progress on this and add comments at:
Hi Paul, very useful to hear that and see the link! I can stop trying to fix my code now at least for the moment.
No problem. I will post an update here when I have it.
