bold text I want to use the suggested secure password feature but need to have a special character in many sites. Without this as an option the feature is useless. Every search I have done results in 2-4 year old threads. I need an answer from 2024. Thanks.

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

Regards

Can’t get Firefox to autofill user names & passwords on my iPad. Also, can’t enter addresses to be used later to autofill forms & not sure if it’s remembering new logins.

When I try to access my passwords I get a message that I must have a “device passcode enabled”. I don’t know what this means or where it’s located. (See image).

These features were working previously but I must have changed vital settings. When I search help I’m unable to follow the instructions because my display does not show the items mentioned.

Any help much appreciated.

Unable to use password manager on most pages

Hello! Firefox for iOS is my main browser, but often when visiting web pages it doesn’t show the ‘passwords’ button on a username/e-mailaddress field when attempting to log-in. It does show the button when asking me to enter a password after entering the username/e-mailadress manually.

To solve this I tried different password managers (Enpass and now Bitwarden). It does show up on Safari. I have this issue for some time now and I do experience it on several iOS versions (16.1 to 16.6). Also I tried manually re-enabling the 3rd party password manager within the password settings on my device. Unfortunately I can’t share a screenshot of me seeing the password manager on the password screen as it hides the section when screenshotting..


Does anyone know how to solve this? It makes using a password manager a headache and would love to solve it!

Auto Insert Login Details

Ive come back to firefox for android after a year of using other browser,bbut there is no setting i can find.

1, i visit a login page The page has the username but the password field is blank.

2, i select the link at bottom tbat says passwords.

3, a list pops up, and one of the listed items is to pick a saved password.

4, i pick the saved password, then all the urls are in the background while a thumprint security check is showing.

5, i put my thumb on the screen and now it lets me see all the saved passwords.

6, i select the correct url whos password is the right one.

7, it returns back to the original login page BLANK

It seams to me auto fill is switched on, but its not working, or the thumbnail security is blacking the transfer.

So ive deleted the url and password saved, there was only one, then ive gone to the login page and typed in the username and password, enter. Firefox asks if i wish to save the logon details, i do

But each time i go to the login page the password is blank?

I should add the url is a link to my network drives, so its an ip address like 192.168.x.xx

So ehy is android firefox no longer inserting the details, its the latest version, ive also cleared cache both, and it losds firefox as if its the first time i ran it. I set everything up to what i want, auto login is on.

I sign in with my account and sync brings back my desktop bookmarks saved logins etc.

Still there is only one url saved, ive seen this happen sometimes when thete is 2 saved logins for same url, but right now there is only one saved bookmark, and only one saved user name and password.

Anything i can do, or back to the browser i was using. Ive used the new android fitefox ever since it updated to the new one, most of the time it sat ln my phone unused, so i made sure jt had no update.

Sorry this is long, but ill be told to make sure the suto fill or auto login is on. Ive been through sll its settings.

Thanks

John

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.

I mistakenly uninstalled Firefox, then reboored and reinstalled it. How do I recover my saved passwords?

I tried going to the Data folder, but there is only 1 folder there, "export messages", for an app that lets me print out or save existing text messages .

Problem with entering user names/passwords [Newest Firefox Android Update]

Good evening,

ever since the latest update (and the version before it) I've encountered a problem with pasting saved user names and passwords into the login brackets.

Expected behaviour: A website is loaded; the website is a login page for which I have saved user data. For the login id and password bracket each Firefox suggests the information via dropdown menu. I choose the specific data set, after which the brackets are filled automatically by the app.

Encountered behaviour: I choose the specific data set, but the information is not filled into the brackets. The user data has to be entered manually for each bracket.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Kind regards, Il_Bolognese

Lockwise worked fine but is sadly no more.

I use my fingerprint to unlock my saved passwords on my 'phone. My master password on my laptop is letters, not numbers. My tablet has no fingerprint facility and only offers a numerical keypad. Therefore, I am unable to access my passwords on the tablet. If the PIN requested is NOT my master password, how am I to set up a PIN?

Why does not Firefox alphabetize saved passwords by business? Some logins requiring passwords start with prefixes like login, and for the same company with just the company name. AT&T has several as does Verizon. Unfortunately Firefox spreads them around the list. You have to repeatedly scroll down, try one, then Firefox takes you to the top of the list so was it the 3rd or 4th AT&T item-- you loose your place. Then down much lower on the list are more of the same company. Can you tell i am really passed with Firefox?
