When I go to sites where I have a login/password saved, it no longer prefills them, but brings up a popup of "suggested logins" which, to be blunt, is very finicky about where the focus is and where you click on it.

It was so great when it just prefilled the login. For example, for my thermostat control site. I'm never, ever going to need multiple logins for it. Or for most sites. It would be so much better if it returned to the previous behavior, or if I could make it do so.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I just switched over from Chrome and am setting up my browser, and it seems I cannot select my country for an Address in Autofill? Wtf is that about? I'm an American who lives in Australia (dunno if it matters but I use US English) and my residence is in Australia. But the only two countries selectable are US & Canada... As if there are no other countries out there in the world where people live. How do I fix this? It's incredibly frustrating not to have, and makes zero sense to me why it would be a restriction - I have never seen any other use of countries in a form where it is restricted.

Can’t get Firefox to autofill user names & passwords on my iPad. Also, can’t enter addresses to be used later to autofill forms & not sure if it’s remembering new logins.

When I try to access my passwords I get a message that I must have a “device passcode enabled”. I don’t know what this means or where it’s located. (See image).

These features were working previously but I must have changed vital settings. When I search help I’m unable to follow the instructions because my display does not show the items mentioned.

Any help much appreciated.

My Firefox on iPhone (latest version) will pop up the sign in / password dialogue whenever I click an input field for text. It’s not detecting OTPs more than half the time, and even OTP dialogue boxes cause Firefox to try and open the Keychain and sign in, even if it’s not on the sign in page! I find this very concerning. Reinstalling Firefox doesn’t fix it and rebooting phone doesn’t fix it. Any ideas?

I would include a screen but it’s displaying personal information every time I click a text field.

Hi ! I´m using firefox 125.1(40778) on ios 17.4. Recently I faced a problem with the password manager of Firefox, as it doesn`t automatically fill in username and password on a site I visit on a regular basis. But when you click on the username the keyboard pops up and there I found the option to use the password manager of firefox. After re-authentification (fingerprint on my mobile) it opens the password manager and suggests the appropriate password. Clicking on it and you are in.

So the password manager still works although in a more complicated way because once you´re in the house you don´t need the door key anymore.

I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.
