hey community,

i am pretty desperate at this point, so i thought, i'd just ask you:

a while ago i had a breach of some of my old passwords. i was able to redo all my passwords into new and strong passwords before someone did shenanigans with my accounts, but the password sync of my firefox app on android still has the old passwords.

i tried disconnecting and reconnecting the sync, i tried deleting the cache and app data, still everytime i get the same result. i can't even log into ky university's default account anymore.

i desperately need your help. what am i doing wrong, what am i missing?

greetings!

I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.

Hi. first of all, your android app is awesome. That you can listen to videos or YT videos when the app is minimalized or the phone screen is locked is great feature. BUT I am not used to it and I would prefer to change the settings so when I lock the screen the video automatically pauses and does not keep playing....

Any way to achieve that??? Thanks !

Using android firefox latest. I just have a suggestion. I'm using the browser with the url bar and buttons on.the bottom of the screen, to be better reachable with my thumb. Now when I long press a link the popup with the options list appears in the middle of the screen, making me reach quite high/using both hands. If it appeared on the bottom it would be more comfortable to use.

Thanks for making firefox!

Occasionally I clear the cache memory for the apps on my Poco F5. Of all the apps I use, firefox consumes the highest (8GB+) of cache. So yesterday I cleared the cache memory, didn't use firefox apart from minor browsing for 10 mins or so. Now it's filled back again (6GB+). The app size is just 267MB, but the cache is insanely high.

After I had changed the system wide font on my android, random fonts appear in all the websites that do not have custom website fonts.

The fonts work properly on chromium based browsers but this seems to be an issue with firefox. I had previously changed a setting in about:config to fix it but now I cannot find it.

Pls help.

After installing a shortcut to a website that stages as an app through the Firefox Android app (Samsung 6.0, Android 14) when using said shortcut, if entering any text box the keyboard will pop up and rapidly close and open, making it unable to use. This problem happens on any text box, and with any keyboard. I'll attach a youtube link of a screen recording as well as a gif, though it's rather difficult to see the entire problem through a gif. Thanks for reading!

Hello, I have one Android phone with Firefox and many, many tabs open in it. I am going to migrate to another Android and would like to have all those tabs open on the new device. I googled and found Firefox sync. Tried that but on the new device all the tabs are visible in a list of tabs from the other devices but they are not opened ! I would need to go through all of them and then open each (too many to do that manually). Is there any semi-automatic way of having all the tabs from the old device opened (as tabs) on the new device ?

If there is no such way I can alos try low-level solutions i.e.: that requires accessing both phones over USB and copying particular files.
