.htpasswd autocomplete not working

Normal logins are working fine, but if I have to sign into sites which require a .htpasswd login, no user and no password will be filled, though the data exists, because on desktop Firefox, it's working without problems.

If you need more information or maybe I can help you fix it, I'll do my best.

Hi andi448, that probably will come next Spring.

More Background

That style of login usually is called "HTTP Authentication" or "Basic Authentication" and there is a request on file to add it to the new Firefox for Android:

On Mozilla's Bugzilla (1676216), there is a reference to working on this in "Q1" which I assume means January-March of 2021. I haven't seen any other indications of timing in my research.

Hi jscher2000, thanks for clarifying the terms for that login method. Great to hear, that it's a known problem and also a plan for working on it. :)
