Firefox for Android 7.0, Firefox 94.1.2 and Logins and Password

"Autofill in other Apps" selection never appears in the menu for the above set up but does appear in an Android 8.1 version with the same Firefox version of 94.1.2.

The 7.0 Android version never offers a valid saved login for external apps.

The 8.1 Android version will pop up a text box below the User ID entry that says "Unlock Firefox" but selecting the text box does nothing. The same text box also appears below the password box after manually entering the User ID and selecting CONTINUE to get to the Password entry box (but only in 8.1) If you Long Press the User ID or Password box in 8.1 it offers a Paste selection but it's not a UID or Password, just the last Cut item.

In Android 10.0 Long Press on the UID or Password box will bring up an "Autofill" box but it does nothing and does not offer a UID or Password anywhere for external apps.

Something is clearly broken in External App password from Firefox for Android. All the available settings are as they should be set. The Password fill works as it should from the Web Page of the same App entity, say Amazon for example.

So.....whose problem is this?

Hey all, I am "migrating" to Firefox right now. However, i find the google search results a bit odd, as the firefox does not show up the Google Maps results e.g. Opening times as a dropdown. Any idea how to fix that in firefox ? I use that quite often to be honest. Attached a screenshot from Firefox (android) search result and Brave in that example.

Thanks!

Phone says sync is OK, but attempting to log in to a site doesn't bring up saved password. I notice that Firefox doesn't use it's own search engine; uses Google instead. Don't know if this is a problem or not.

Hi there I have used Firefox on my android phone for the longest time, and never had an issue. A couple of days ago it crashed immediately on trying to open it. I repeated trying to open it across the course of the day - but continued crashing. I deleted it, and have set to use Chrome. I reinstalled Firefox - same issue. I am not techy-techy (!) but would like to have Firefox back on my phone as all my passwords are there. Any help appreciated Thank you :)

Hello,

Is there a way to refresh a page on Firefox for Android by dragging down the viewport?

I use it all the time on Opera for Android and it's really helpful.

Wondering if you can enable that option or where to request that feature for a new version of the browser.

Thank you!

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

So I took a look at "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-bookmark-folders-firefox-android#mobile::m68" and according to the instructions there should be : "Rename or move a Bookmark folder

   Go to the Bookmarks panel on your home screen.
   Press and hold on the bookmark folder you want to change until the menu appears. "

However there's no greyed out "Bookmarks". It just lists my top sites, when I attempt to type "the" in the browser URL bar. I can only uncheck/check the star to add/remove the bookmark. I, however, need access to my bookmarks from my desktop so I can browse through them.

Firefox synch is working just fine, because I have the bookmarks, and stored passwords show up when I type in Firefox Mobile v68. I just cannot browse to a particular set of bookmarks that I use for reading my magazines. I can only do that from the computer because I never remember the site name.

I also cannot access android history of sites visited.

There's also no "Home" button, so I cannot go to my desired home page.
