My google account has informed me that some of my information has been found in data breaches on the dark web. This included a list of information found. Where a password has been compromised, the list gives the 1st 3 characters of the password followed by ******. No website information is given. My query ..... Is there a way of searching my passwords held in Firefox to find this password so that I can change it? Firefox stores my passwords, how do I find a particular password without knowing the website it is associated with?

On Nintendo website, I would like to setup a passkey. When logged into nintendo.com, in settings, under passkeys, I see the following message "You can't use a passkey to sign in from this device". I can add a passkey using the same device in chrome. Device is Pixel 7 Pro. Firefox version 121.1.0 (Build #2015996455) can Firefox allow for me to create a passkey using 1password or hardware key? Is there a setting that needs to be enabled?

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

Regards

All logins passwords and bookmarks disappeared from my Android phone after the latest Mozilla update (version 120.1.0).

On the phone version I can't locate any previous Profiles to check whether the filesight be there. In fact it was necessary to revert to my trusty handwritten paper password list to even login to write this query.

I have updated Firefox/Mozilla every time an update was announced.

This is not the reliability I would expect from Mozilla and I hope you can help me to recover these files.

Firefox password manager will not offer to generate a password if i am creating a new account on my iphone. It works fine for autofilling existing passwords. I can only do that on my Windows PC. Can the iOS version generate secure paswords? I couldn't find anything to help in an internet search.

Hello,

I want to delete all the passwords I have saved on FireFox,

I have saved a lot of passwords so it is too heavy for me to delete them one by one, so please suggest some solution or something by which the entire saved passwords can be deleted at one go.

I have some personal reasons due to which I am requesting you.

It is not even giving the option to delete Saved password.

Disable viewing all passwords using fingerprint

I like using fingerprint to unlock my mobile and I can manage the risks linked to the weaknesses of the method.

BUT I find very dangerous to be able to access all my passwords using my finger. My finger could be used when I am asleep for example and the person would be able to see and copy all the passwords he wants while I am sleeping. I would even not notice he copied anything when I wake up.

When I want to see a password I am proposed to use PIN AND fingerprint. So unless there is a way to disable unlocking the passwords with the fingerprint, I am forced to disable fingerprint to unlock my mobile which is annoying.

My question is -- How do I disable fingerprint for accessing my passwords without removing fingerprint globally ?

Since thete is no primary password on FF mobile Android. Other then using a global type lock on my phone, what are ways to keep my saved FF logins safe? I heard of something called lockbox or lockwise but don't see that option anywhere. Are the apps that can seamlessly work with FF?

Also is there someway to see a forum vs. being abstracted awaywith this gui? Or is there no forum access?

Thanks.

Whenever ZmI go 2 lookup a saved login or to enter my Android pass code 2 do the same, the keyboard to enter it refuses to show so that I can. At 1st I was using an add on keyboard called Black Red Tech from Play Store. I took that out, restarted & tried with GBoard. No change. I have restarted phone several times. Next step is uninstalling FF but I'm reluctant 2 do that. Any other ideas?? This is what the screen displays in both cases, and there is no way that talking, holding buttons or restarting seems to pop the keyboard up. This is what keyboard looks like. Screenshot of saved logins screen just is blank black.
