My synced passwords do not appear on my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A when I open an App. It gives the message "UNLOCK FIREFOX" and goes to the numbers screen. It asks me to enter my passcode and I don't have one for Firefox. I have been trying for over a half year to find answer to my problem. Due to auto updates my Android phone stopped entering my log in information on my Apps. This 71 year old is desperate to find an answer.

Background: My PC's HDD crashed. I had to start from scratch with new Firefox install. I don't know my password to access my account to sync passwords and bookmarks. However, I have a synced Firefox Mobile install on my Android phone that can access them just fine. Question: I need my password. Is there any way to find the password on my phone so I can log into my Firefox account on my PC? Or, is there perhaps a way to work backwards, syncing the PC to the phone with Recovery Key?

Suggestions for Firefox for Android

Since the built-in password manager is not good enough in terms of security and functionality, (and I don't think it will be good enough for the foreseeable future), it would actually be a good idea to build an app instead of the built-in one, or to choose a third party app as a partner as an official recommendation, and so forth.

I find the browser's ad-blocking features to be very unorganized, repetitive, and not easy to use. I wish you could build a comprehensive enough and personalized built-in pan-ad blocker.

And please allow the beta version's custom "add-ons collection" to be added to the official version

Anyway, there are many problems and many solutions, I hope Firefox will be better and better.

Thanks.

Good morning, I have a problem when I am on the login page. Then a window with saved passwords appears, I choose a specific password and in the "login" button, my password appears instead of the text. I would like to report this problem to you, I am sending a screenshot for confirmation. This problem does not only concern the gov.pl portal, but also all other portals. Best regards, Adrian Cichy

I use a Huawei phone, native to China. All settings are United States and America for location and language. Also, I am a 20+ knowledgeable computer technician with significant Android experience.

I have logged into my account using the scan process from the desktop application. Regardless of my efforts to have the FireFox Android app retain the profile, when I exit the provisioning screen I am logged out.

Additionally, in settings I am presented with an option to "Use domestic China services", which I turned off. Again, I all settings for location and language are United States and English (US).

This feels like an aggressive malevolent effort to persuade me to uninstall FireFox and select an alternate default browser. Very frustrated.

'Please make whatever changes necessary to enable users to associate their profile as appropriate, without forcing them to use an unfamiliar language, and preventing them from connecting with their desktop account.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Ive come back to firefox for android after a year of using other browser,bbut there is no setting i can find.

1, i visit a login page The page has the username but the password field is blank.

2, i select the link at bottom tbat says passwords.

3, a list pops up, and one of the listed items is to pick a saved password.

4, i pick the saved password, then all the urls are in the background while a thumprint security check is showing.

5, i put my thumb on the screen and now it lets me see all the saved passwords.

6, i select the correct url whos password is the right one.

7, it returns back to the original login page BLANK

It seams to me auto fill is switched on, but its not working, or the thumbnail security is blacking the transfer.

So ive deleted the url and password saved, there was only one, then ive gone to the login page and typed in the username and password, enter. Firefox asks if i wish to save the logon details, i do

But each time i go to the login page the password is blank?

I should add the url is a link to my network drives, so its an ip address like 192.168.x.xx

So ehy is android firefox no longer inserting the details, its the latest version, ive also cleared cache both, and it losds firefox as if its the first time i ran it. I set everything up to what i want, auto login is on.

I sign in with my account and sync brings back my desktop bookmarks saved logins etc.

Still there is only one url saved, ive seen this happen sometimes when thete is 2 saved logins for same url, but right now there is only one saved bookmark, and only one saved user name and password.

Anything i can do, or back to the browser i was using. Ive used the new android fitefox ever since it updated to the new one, most of the time it sat ln my phone unused, so i made sure jt had no update.

Sorry this is long, but ill be told to make sure the suto fill or auto login is on. Ive been through sll its settings.

Thanks

When trying to autofill password in other app, a fingerprint icon alongside "Unlock Firefox" is being displayed. Tapping on said icon doesn't do anything. And I can't simply unlock via fingerprint, since my device is using an in-display fingerprint reader which triggers the keyboard stroke instead of reading the fingerprint to unlock the passwords.

Device: Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro Android: 11 MIUI: 12.5.2 Keyboard: GBoard & Swiftkey (both show same issue)
