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

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. I have been using Chrome for years and have lots of bookmarks and passwords and such that I want to transfer over. The thing is, I do not typically use a desktop; I use my iOS mobile devices. Is there a way to transfer my bookmarks in the app? Or am I required to use a desktop to complete this?

Version: 68.8.0 Firefox for Android Release

May 5, 2020

Firefox account is verified and syncs on Linux (Debian, firefox esr). On android (actually android compat on sailfishos) the account can be signed into but is always flagged as requiring verification. Have purged app data to no avail. Tapping the box does not send a verification email. Not sure what else to try.

I can browse web pages fine, but I cannot gain access to login to my FireFox Account. I have had to use another browser to post this as I needed to login to my Forefox Account in order to do so.

Why am I seen these symbols?

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

Recover Firefox password without losing bookmarks and saved logins

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I've woken up to discover that my passwords have all vanished. My bookmarks are available. My usernames are suggested, but my passwords have all disappeared. I checked "saved passwords", and it's totally empty. I really hope it's fixable. I've always proceeded with auto-fill. There are passwords I haven't manually typed in over three years.

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

Hi, I just what to communicate that at the beginning, if Firefox was the best it was because it was the most faster browser. Now with all possibility and extension Firefox is too slow.

For example last time I want to search on Google ask and the request take 1minute because the browser made an update.

Imagine a little Firefox who start instantly! Imagine a little Firefox who take 10 mo ram with 10 Tab ( personally I don't think it's possible but it's the idea)

Sorry for my English, but I hope that a team build a new Firefox, little Firefox because actually any browser ( Chrome, edge, opera, safari) have this possibility.

Best regards My old best browser Firefox.

  • Bulleted list itemAccount - both devices are connected. After exiting and entering again device names have changed, nothing else has changed.
  • Bulleted list itemPhone - PC not visible, "No Devices Connected".
  • Bulleted list itemPC - you can see the synchronized tabs (!from the phone). Sending a tab sends it "to nowhere".

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.

I recently lost all my saved logins on Firefox. Found out I still have them on an old Android phone that has Firefox Beta installed. How do I transfer those logins to my other devices, and export them so I can save them locally and never lose them again? I don't want to press sync on the phone and then have them wiped out on the phone as well. I want to press sync and transfer them to all other devices. Thanks. I despise lockwise, btw, great job creating problems where none existed.

Hey,

My employer recently updated its information security policy, and as a part of that disabled Firefox accounts on our work laptops. Is there a way to "manually" sync passwords, bookmarks, tabs etc. to and from a computer that is not logged in? Installing third party software is, because of the same security policy, not an option.

I've relied heavily on Firefox Sync in the past, as I often come across items of interest that I bookmark on my private laptop that I would like to access on my work computer and vice versa, passwords are updated often etc. The updated security policy has become a real nuisance, so I am looking for a workaround. ;)

(And yes, I am talking to our IT department, and they are at least semi interested in finding a solution.)

Appreciate any help!

My old Firefox lost the fox icon and gave the "page with crossed sticks" icon. I deleted Firefox, thinking I could just download a new copy. But when I did that, I was confronted with "Sync". I do not want to use Firefox on other devices, just my iMac. I want to click on the Firefox icon on my dock, type in what I want to find out about, and that's that. Instead, I get confronted with all kinds of gobblity-gook about Sync and can't even browse. Help!!!
