Huge security issue with saved passwords

Hi all!

To test this I did a complete fresh install of Firefox on Android. After installation I paired Firefox with my account via firefox.com/pair. On my PC the main password is activated and supposed to protect my passwords via encryption. After pairing and enabling the password sync option all my stored passwords are available on the Android phone. And I even can have a look at them in clear text.

This is a huge problem since it never asked me for my main password. This password is supposed to be required to decrypt this data. Which means this data is not encrypted on the Firefox servers. Which in turn means even my passwords I use on the PC are not secure.

According to all documentation I read until now I was assuming my data is only stored encrypted and can only be restored with the main password. Right now I don't really know what to do. I require a secure password store.

Many Greetings! Remo

So apparently I have a oneplus 9 pro, 12gb ram, background apps running is set to be allow, chrome runs fine, edge runs fine, but once I switched back to firefox, I'm having issue with webpage tab. If I open more than one web page, the others will be refreshing for no reason. Any solution??

1. ¿What do you have to do to download web video content with Firefox from sites that don't even have a download "button" enabled even though they are not their rightful owners?

2. ¿What do you have to do in Firefox to redirect the downloads to an External Storage device instead of letting them be saved by default in the "Downloads" folder of the Main Storage?

Firefox Daylight (94.1.2) > Secret Settings > Use third party CA certificates (Allows the use of third party certificates from the Android CA store)

1. Hay dispositivos con Sistema Operativo Android que NO disponen de la posibilidad de instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Usuario.

1. There are devices with Android Operating System that DO NOT have the possibility of installing certificates in the User's Storage.

2. Parece que Firefox NO reconoce y acepta aquellos certificados que hayan sido instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

2. It seems that Firefox does NOT recognize and accept those certificates that have been installed in the System Storage.

Digo "parece que no" porque desconozco la raíz del problema. Sin embargo, así viene sucediendo desde que aparecieron las "Secret Settings": Firefox NO atiende los certificados instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

I say "it seems not" because I do not know the root of the problem. However, this has been the case since the "Secret Settings" appeared: Firefox does NOT serve the certificates installed in the System Storage.

Y esto origina un gran problema a todos los usuarios de Firefox cuyos dispositivos Android sólo permiten instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

And this causes a big problem for all Firefox users whose Android devices only allow to install certificates in the System Storage.

En esa situación, Firefox no funciona correctamente cuando debe interactuar con otra magnífica aplicación como es AdGuard AdBlocker.

In that situation, Firefox does not work properly when it must interact with another magnificent application such as AdGuard AdBlocker.

Por favor, observen que no hablo de AdGuard como "add-on" de Firefox...

Please, note that I do not speak of AdGuard as a Firefox "add-on"...

Y, por lo que más queráis, os ruego que, aunque el planteamiento de este problema pueda ser algo difícil de comprender, pongáis toda vuestra atención en el hecho de que Firefox parece fallar a la hora de utilizar cualquier certificado que haya sido almacenado en el Sistema.

And, for what you want more, I beg you that, although the approach to this problem may be somewhat difficult to understand, put all your attention on the fact that Firefox seems to fail to use any certificate that has been stored in the System.

Sólo trato de advertir a todos sobre este gran fallo con la esperanza de que ustedes, los de Mozilla, puedan y quieran arreglarlo.

I'm just trying to warn everyone about this big bug in the hope that you, guys at Mozilla, can and will fix it.

I was a happy user of Lockwise & Sync until I got a support mail today saying that Lockwise was being replaced by the in-built passed manager in Firefox. (running Firefox beta for android here)

This is fine, but it now takes me 4 clicks to get to my passwords, hidden a few levels deep in the settings screen, which is a pain.

Would it be possible to have about:logins work on Android, and allow me to create a url shortcut to that on my home page so that I can get to passwords as easy as I could before? (Honestly, Lockwise seemed just fine to me, it's a shame it's going away)

Thanks for your help!

Hi...sadly the last update deleted all of saved logins and passwords. That's a whole lot of information I can't remember or ever regain now. I don't know what to do. I'm really upset. I haven't looked yet to see what else is gone, but I imagine maybe all of my bookmarks and then all of my Firefox settings reset now.

Why does FF make you search all over again for logins/passwords? If I search for a login and get multiple hits and after I look at one and click the back button I have to search all over again to get back to the same results. Is this a feature or a bug? Is there a setting I need to change? If it's a feature can you add a feature that lets us go back to the same results if we click the back button?

Thank you, Matt

Hey guys, why does the firefox android could not click a very simple small button? For example an "x" button (cancel) and etc. As long as it's small the firefox would not interact with it properly, instead when i click it firefox thought that i long pressed that small button and its kinda annoying because what i need to do is to zoom in for that button just so the firefox could properly click that and not long pressed. Problem is almost all the websites i visit has a button like that and so does it mean i will literally need to zoom a simple "x" button or any kind of small details on a webpage just for firefox could properly identify them? Example of whats happening link Browser: latest firefox android Device: Realme 6 , 8/128

I would like to change my homepage but can't figure out how to. I was able to do it easily on my laptop but I can't figure out where to go in the settings to make this change. This phone came with Google Chrome but there have been too many issues being warned about so I decided to make the change to you since you have always been the browser on my laptop anyway. Forbes as you listed as one of the top two most secure browsers. I just want to change my own page if you can help please. I will be ever so thankful for any effort you make on my behalf. Have a great day.. stay healthy and happy!

Hi. Why, when I manually delete data (cookies, data, history), it deletes it thoroughly, and when the delete option is active when closing the program, it does not delete all data? The settings for manual and automatic options are the same. As a user, I didn't realize Mozilla was telling the truth. R.G. Daniel

I got a new phone (new model as the old one - a replacement) and set up Firefox Sync on it. However, I haven't been able to get my Sync account to fully recognize this new phone.

When I go to Settings > My account and select "sync now", nothing ever happens. It always says "last synced: never". Bookmarks aren't synced. I can't change what syncs with the new phone, as they're greyed out (perhaps since it doesn't think the new phone ever synced?). When I try to go to the Synced tabs menu (next to the open tabs and private tabs), it just says "please enable tab syncing". Pressing the "Sync" button will make it say "Syncing..." but nothing changes.

I can change the name of the new phone in my account, and this is recognized by other devices synced to my account.

I had taken off my old phone from the sync account. I thought something was weird with my account. I tried adding the old phone back on and... it works fine. Bookmarks sync, tabs can be sent.

I've already tried: Clearing Firefox app cache on new phone = didn't work. Uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it on the new phone. Signing into Sync again. = didn't work. Signing out of all devices on my Sync account, then signing in to my main computer and then new phone = didn't work.

What is wrong with this new phone?
