Hi. So for quite a few months I've been experiencing two issues relating to the Firefox auto fill for login details.

Issue 1. When you visit a website sign in page the "Suggested logins" box pops up at the bottom (all normal). But then when you login the box won't go away. I can navigate to somewhere new in same tab or switch to another tab already open and the box won't disappear. To get rid of it I need to open a new tab and go to a new webpage, then I can go back to my already open tab.

Issue 2. The "Suggested logins" auto fill for sign in fields on a webpage won't work. This issue started around the same time as the first and is not on every website but a few including Google Account sign in which I use a lot. I will navigate to a sign in page, the Suggested logins box pops up, I select the login I want, but then it won't fill it in.

I've tried reinstalling the Firefox app, but it didn't work. I've kept using the app despite dealing with this everyday. They may be small bugs but they do get tedious after months of it daily. I was hoping an app update would fix the problem but no update has. So I thought I would share, see if its just me.

From version 110 and up, there are websites where the autofill no longer works. The option to select your saved users & PWs comes up but upon selecting one, nothing gets filled. On other websites the autofill works as intended. Going to the real debrid website is the one I can accurately reproduce the issues on. With version 109 and below, the autofill works. Is there a proper work around besides having to go into the settings, finding out the password and inputting it manually?

Firefox Android does not enter my login credentials into the blanks for some websites. The sites I’m having problems with are linuxmint forums (forums.linuxmint.com) and reddit and google.

I do not have this problem on Firefox for Linux. I do not have this problem on other websites with saved passwords on Firefox for Android.

What do these problem sites have in common, and what distinguishes them from the problem-free sites? The only thing I can think of is that for LinuxMint Forums, reddit, and Google, I have many saved passwords/credentials. I have 36 sets of credentials for reddit and 18 for Linux Mint forums and about 60 for Google.

Can someone please help me?

I have this problem for both Firefox Android regular (presently 114.2.0) and Firefox Android Beta (115.0b9). I've had this problem for a long time (probably over a year).

Firefox for Android 110.0.1

I have created a simple HTML login form (code pasted below). In the past it worked perfectly using Firefox on Android but now when I tap inside the email field the Suggested logins link appears above my keyboard as normal and, when I click on it, a list of suggested logins is presented as normal. If I tap on one of the suggested logins (A URL with ...... underneath representing the password) I am taken back to the login form but the suggested login has not populated the email and password fields which are still empty. So, I have to type or copy and paste the email and password into the fields in order to be able to login.

I have pasted the code below.

<meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>Document</title>

Login

<form method="post"> <label for="email-input">Email</label> <input type="email" id="email-input" name="email" required> <label for="password-input">Password</label> <input type="password" id="password-input" name="password" required> <input type="submit" id="submit-input" value="Login" name="submit"> </form>

Autofill stopped working on Android. I try to tick on and off both the boxes for autofill in settings. It has absolutely no effect on how the browser works. When I go to a website I want to log in to, it shows suggested logins at the bottom. I can click on a selected saved user but nothing ever happens, not a single field is filled. When I turn off the autofill triggers in settings suprisingly autofill menu is still displayed on any page. Reinstalling did not work. Please help me. I was enjoying this browser but its a dealbreaker for me. My phone is Xiaomi Mi note pro 10 but I doubt it makes a difference

Starting by Firefox Android version 110, the autofill for username and password didn't work for certain websites (in my case, it's: http://e-learning.stmi.ac.id/auth/login). The option to choose username is there, but after clicking one of the username, it fails to fill in the login form.

Other websites with that same domain name (any.stmi.ac.id) also didn't work.

In desktop Firefox, the autofill works just fine for websites from that domain.

Please kindly help. Thank you

my usernames and passwords are not syncing....i have all my passwords and usernames saved on my pc....and I’ve synced all passwords and logins and can view them on both devices. ‘Autofill in Firefox’ and ‘Autofill in other apps’ are both on. But, when logging in to apps on the Samsung, autofill doesn’t work. Even if I fill in my email address, there is no password suggestion. Instead, a small dropdown message appears: ‘unlock Firefox’. It isn’t active, and doesn’t open anything when I tap on it. Result: I have to go looking for the passwords and fill them in manually. I hope there’s a solution. thank u in advance for your help. LL

I use the Firefox password manager build into the Web browser app on android.

Sometimes the autofill doesn't work on some apps/webservices so I need to manually copy the password across.

Since you stopped supporting lockwise, this is a massive pain, I need to click through many menus, and once I change screen the vault locks again meaning it's very cumbersome to copy a username and password.

Is there a shortcut to access the password vault directly? Is it possible to add a widget that launches straight into the vault in the browser?

I have Firefox synced with my mobile and my desktop. I have a number of logins and passwords saved. When I go to a site I get suggested logins, I click on the appropriate one, and up until recently, whether on my cell or desktop it filled in and I click and can login. It recently stopped working on my cell. I can bring up the webpage, I still get suggested logins and click the appropriate one but nothing gets filled in, no user name and no password. I have logged out and relogged in, resync'd and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions before I stop using Firefox and look for another browser that works on desktop and cell?

I use Firefox to save and autofill passwords, which has worked perfect for years. It still works correctly on a Windows PC, but the problem is on my Huawei P30 pro phone. It used to work correctly but I tried using the phones password manager for both websites and Apps, as a safety back up. I got confused because I was getting 2 lots of suggested log ons. Therefore I switched off everything apart from Firefox. Save passwords and autofill are enabled and some websites load correctly. However some websites where the family have a variety of logons I get all the suggested logons. The list of all usernames and passwords appear but when I touch them they don't automatically fill in. If I go into the password manager on Firefox on my phone all the correct details are saved but they just don't transfer to the website. It is strange because some sites do take the password - I'm not sure but I think it's when there are a variety of possible Loggins. I tried clearing all cookies, and logged out of Firefox and back in but still have the issue. Firefox sync is still working OK.

I am running Ff 114.0.2 on a Windows 11 workstation and Ff mobile on a Samsung Galaxy S20. Syncing is enabled on both devices, but passwords are not syncing, even after manually syncing. Autofill of usernames and passwords works on my workstation, but not on my mobile device, even though that feature is enabled. Sometimes (but not always), I am prompted on my mobile device to unlock Firefox, but after tapping the prompt, nothing happens.

Hi, I have a problem with remembering the login details on the account - the point is that everything works fine on the browser on the computer, while on the browser on the phone (android) it sees the login details, but after selecting it, it does not complete the login fields as if there were no such data and they are, after checking the tab "saved login details" and finding the login, I manually copy the data and paste it on the page, then I log in ok. Why does the login not work with saved logins? Has anyone had or has the same problems? P.S Synchronization is done, the browser is reinstalled, it's the same on another phone
