For sometime now I have been unable to access my Bell email on Firefox except if I use private browsing and then it allows me to get to my login and by default allows me to enter my login and password. But if I don't use privacy browsing mode, I cannot get to my email. This is on my android Samsung phone btw. Bell tells me it's a browser issue and that I'm to contact Firefox or switch to Chrome or Edge, but I'd rather do it through Firefox. Can anyone assist as to how I can correct this issue?

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

John

I've been trying to install .xpi files for Firefox on Android 12 with little success. Every file manager I've tried doesn't give me the option to open .xpi files with Firefox and my device isn't rooted so I can't access the full file system.

Are there any articles/suggestions? I've always wanted extensions on mobile but never been able to install.

I have 3 separate sets of User IDs w. respective PWs email accounts. After I login to 1st ID, say User-1 & PW-1, --> Enter, the Firefox prompts: "Don't Update" ... "Update" options. Let's say I click --> "Update" option and later log off.

Next I login to 2nd ID, say User-2 & PW-2 --> Enter, again I get same two prompts "Don't Update" ... "Update". Then on it gets interesting .... ....

  • Case 1:- If I click --> "Don't Update," ... later log off. Next when I try login on using either of IDs, User-1 or User-2, Firefox will auto fill in --> PW-1 ... ... (bcoz I had opted --> "Don't Update").
  • Case 2:- Alternatively if I click --> "Update" and later log off. Next when I try login on using either of IDs, User-1 or User-2, Firefox will auto fill --> PW-2 (bcoz now I had opted --> Update" and therefore both IDs got inherited w. PW-2).

The same scenario is enacted if I login to 3rd ID --> User-3. Again depending upon what I click on "Don't Update" / "Update."

Eventually all 3 IDs would inherit just one of the three PWs. This happens whether the Firefox browser is on Mobile or Desktop mode. Lastly on other websites other than att.com login page, I get Save option after entering the PW.

Hello,

Firefox began to act very slow on my Pixel phone. I have worked on the issue the last two days. I called Norton and ran my Norton scanner several times; I am told my phone is using toouch memory from Norton yet I have no virus. I disabled Google and the phone is better. There is a problem with the Google update that Google is either not acknowledging or does not know how to fix. I re-installed Firefox. Now I can go to the Yahoo.com website. When I click to login into Yahoo mail the webpage crashes and reads that Mozilla cannot open this page. I have never had this problem before. I am able to open the login page using the Chrome browser. I wonder if there is a default security setting from when I re-installed Firefox that I should deselect? I seem to be able to use all other parts of Firefox. I clicked on the button to send Mozilla the crash reports information. Thank you for helping me.
