I've checked my google account - this setting is turned off.

I am not signed into any accounts on firefox android - so why does it pop up on random sites? It's even doing it on porn sites?

How do I stop it? It's annoying, intrusive and who wants google to sign into everything for them? Huge security flaw.

If I use Yandex browser or Opera - no pop up, so it's definitely a Firefox Android thing.

Now what? Another useless POS. Sorry, I've had it with this security crap. No joy on multiple Android devices, every site I tried, bar none. No VPN or anything abnormal connectionwise. Every other browser on multiple devices works fine.

Re-allow a website to access my location on mobile

Hi, Recently a website I use on my phone for work popped up with the little box asking for permission to access my location, and just out of habit I immediately denied it and ticked 'Don't ask again'. However, that was dumb because I do really need that website to be able to access my location and I can't figure out how to turn it on again. If I go into Settings=>Website Permissions=>Location, which I've read in other places I should do, my only two options are 'block' or 'ask for permission', so I've changed it back to 'ask for permission' but it hasn't asked me again and it's still not recording my location, despite restarting to tab, broswer, phone etc. What can I do? Thanks:)

Can somebody sane please explain to me why firefox developers haven't implemented a smooth sync when there are Master Password's involved?

I use firefox in my desktop and in my phone and I can't get the passwords to sync due to my desktop having a master password (which firefox itself proposes to have set so that my passwords are safe) and Android not having that and so it can't decrypt the desktop passwords.

How difficult it is to make syncing between Desktop and Android firefoxes smooth when you have set a master password for the desktop version?

Even if FF for Android is not using a Master Password why doesn't desktop FF ask for the master password, the proceed to decrypt the passwords in the background and then using sync (which as mozilla says transmits passwords in encrypted form) send them to the mozilla servers? I mean even if I haven't set a Master Passowrd the passwords submitted to Mozilla servers during syncing are always stored decrypted in some way right?

Is there a way to sign out of your Sync account on your phone such that your master password would be required to be input before connecting again? I couldn't find a way to log out on my phone so I ended up just simply deleting Firefox from the phone in order to secure the passwords and transitioning to Chrome.

Is there a way on Firefox for android to use my fingerprint to authenticate my login to a website? I have a galaxy s22 and am using Firefox version 106.1.0. Right now I just go to the webpage and it lets me select a username and password to log in and I would rather it ask me for a fingerprint before letting me just log in.

Thanks
