I've searched and read several "fixes" for this problem, but they either don't make sense, are old, or don't work.

I have enabled sync on both devices. I have selected logins to be synced on both devices. I am not using primary password on either device. Still, I cannot get my passwords to show up in my android device.

Please help and keep it simple, because some of the answers elsewhere made no sense to me. I apparently need very small words to understand.

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

A website I am trying to use requires JavaScript to use. From what I've seen, JavaScript should be enabled by default, but I want to make sure and/or reset it to see if the website will work then. However, when I tried to figure out how to do that, the only suggestion on here was to change it through about:config, which doesn't do anything. I tried to look that up as well, and I believe someone said that had been taken out so it doesn't work anymore.

I am using FireFox on my Android phone. I've just installed the app, so I'm not missing an update or anyrhing like that.

So how do I make sure JavaScript is enabled? And if it is, how do I troubleshoot to figure out what is actually wrong with the site?

Thank you!

Yahoo is not offered as one of the choices for the homepage and the instructions as to how to enter it or in Chinese as far as I'm concerned. I've tried to copy what it says to do and it just does not work for me. Does anybody know how to help me do this before I lose my freaking mind? I have a Motorola Moto g Play phone and it is the worst piece of garbage I have ever bought in my life. I have never had this problem with any other phone I have owned

I use Firefox to store all my usernames and passwords. Since I have them saved and synced, I use the complex passwords suggested by Firefox. This worked great when we had Lockwise to fill in apps on my phone but no longer. When we were told Lockwise would be going away I asked here how that would work. I was told that I just need to turn on auto-fill apps option in Firefox and in the Android settings. Done. Works about 10% of the time. I get the notice to unlock Firefox but when I do, that's it - nothing gets filled in, no option, no nothing. I try holding on the field, tapping the field, nothing works. Occasionally it will fill in the password but not the user name - I can live with that - but most of the time nothing. This makes life very difficult since I'm using those very complex and random passwords for everything. You can't even look at it and then go fill it in - who could remember all that?! Can this PLEASE get fixed or bring back the Lockwise app?!

I had a simple use case, I had an (important) receipt I needed to save as pdf. Why isn't there/what happened to the save as pdf in firefox? I see there was a way to save as PDF before.

I'm pretty technical, I'd like an in depth answer if possible. Was there some library which couldn't compile on newer versions of android perhaps?

Is there another way to save a page, like a receipt, in firefox?

Pocket, etc. simply doesn't cut it, I need the actual html page saved, as-is, not some link service.

High power consumption in Android

Firefox is using an awful lot of power. Currently with no tabs open it's using 38% against Chrome's 13% and I've had 45% earlier today. I've never checked apps for power consumption previously so that might be normal, but it sure looks like heavy usage. With 6 tabs open, Samsung Internet browser is using 1%.

It's the same for both browsers after a restart. It's an Honor 8A phone, Android 9. I re-installed FF and it's version 101.1.1 When I re-installed FF it was initially only 18% but its gone up and stayed up.

There are settings under App Launch to manage app launch automatically to save battery power by preventing some launches, but it doesn't affect things.

At one point I thought the problem was synchronisation with my FF account, but I just signed out of both FF account and also Youtube, restarted, just the same. When I signed into Youtube in Samsung internet browser it went up to 1.14%

ADDED LATER. I left the phone on and charging overnight. In the morning FF was 9% while Chrome and Samsung browser didn't even appear in the battery useage listing. As soon as I opened a couple of pages in FF, it shot up to 48%.

What else can I check? Is there anything I can do? The Honor battery only just gets through the day anyway, so this is a problem.

Many thanks.

Hello, the firefox autofill for apps on my android phone is not working properly. I have firefox selected in autofill service. I have 'autofill in other apps' selected as well. Sometimes the 'search firefox' prompt appears. When it does I usually have to use biometrics to log in, restart the desired app, and search for the password when prompted again. If I have gotten this far, I am often only able to input the username and not the password. Is there a way to manually pull the prompt? Is there a way to copy the password from the android password manager once it is pulled up? Thank you

Before this last update I could go to a website that had an option to print something like a recipe and I could click the print button on the website and my printer would come up and viola I could print. Now when I click the button nothing happens. My printer doesn't come up and I can't print. So I have to send the link to myself and pull it up in chrome. If I have to do that I might as well switch back. Help?

There currently seems to be no way at all to completely disable the search feature of the address bar. When I type in a wrong address it should say the address is invalid or could not be reached instead of sending it to some search engine. This is a major privacy issue!

It tried all the about:config settings suggested in other similar threads. Nothing works. I can't delete the last search provider.

I also can't add an empty search provider that resolves into nothing, as the interface actively tests whether the search provider is reachable.

The url bar will always try to send my precious spelling errors of embarassing urls I want to visit to some search provider. This is a privacy nightmare...
