Like the idea of Lockwise syncing my passwords between devices. But I need to know if an Internet Connection is required to access my passwords on a particular device. My preference would be Local Storage & Synchronization for Additions & Changes.

Whether it's lockwise or something else I don't know. I was trying to see a login and pw for a site. It wouldn't let me see it without my mozilla/FF pw. When I tried to use that it wouldn't open, wrong pw or login. Don't know which as I thought I was doing it correctly. So I changed my pw for Mozilla/FF and tried again. Still wouldn't open up the logins for other sites. 1. Is this a common problem? 2. I do not want to have to do this when I am on my home base computer. Do I have to use another pw to see my saved pw's. How can that be done? 3. After changing my FF pw, why doesn't that work? All in all a terrible waste of time that has made me second guess FF.

I use Firefox browser on my PC laptop. I have installed Firefox Lockwise on my Android device. I have saved logins and passwords to about 10 different sites. These appear in both my PC laptop and in my Android device. However, when I open an app on my Android device, the username and password are not automatically filled in (as I thought they would be after installing Lockwise on my Android device). Several articles on the web seem to imply that it is also necessary to install Lockwise on the PC laptop? Is this really necessary?

Yesterday my laptop froze and I had to restart, after I rebooted all saved logins in lockwise were gone.

I re-entered all essential passwords.

Same thing happened today (all passwords gone after a system freeze)

When I boot up my other laptop and use sync, all passwords are still there, but my main laptop refuses or is unable to sync and recover my passwords.

Hello, If I connect to a website with password-protection, lockwise will propose some passwords from this and from other websites. Why? I want to get only proposals from this site!

Can I suppress proposals not from the origin site? Is there a config-option?

Please help. I consider Firefox's behavior to be a risk, as clicking on an incorrect entry can compromise it by sending to the wrong website.

Thanks. Andreas

I'm very pleased with how easy to use FF Lockwise is. I had some questions and concerns about capabilities:

1) I leave my Firefox instances open for long periods of time. I do not feel secure knowing all my online accounts can be accessed just a few clicks away. Is there a way to manually lock the autofill password feature without restarting my browser?

2) When Lockwise is locked behind the master password, without prompting a login to a website or having the desire to login, Firefox will repeatedly present me with a pop-up window asking for the master password. Is there any way to prevent this pop-up from occurring until I click on the autofill menu options in a login field?

Thanks a lot. I hope this project continues to grow and remain tied to open source!

I have many passwords stored in my local Firefox profile and it's connected to Firefox account synchronization. Unfortunately I've lost my password for the Firefox account long time ago. Now I want to use Firefox Lockwise on my iPhone with all my passwords from desktop so I need to reset the account password. The warning tells that this action will remove all my stored passwords but it doesn't tell what will happen with my locally stored passwords in Firefox profile (btw I also use master password to encrypt them). So what should I do to reset Firefox lockwise account password but keep all my desktop-stored passwords and sync them back to the lockwise account after reset?

Trying to figure if my computer is secure. The info for some websites is wrong on the Lockwise list: always with an m. in front of the real website: ie in Lockwise, costco.com is listed as m.costco.com and att is listed as m.att.com Obviously I'm not about to click on something that doesn't look right. I'm wondering if these are fake websites?

When I contact the company they say they don't use anything with an m. in front of their website name

Hello, Mozilla Support!

I am using Firefox 79.0 Desktop app for Mac.

Today, I set a master password for my Saved Passwords, because I just found out that just anyone can open 'about:logins' and see my saved logins. So, I set a master password.

After setting the master password, I opened 'about:logins', and it didn't ask for the master password. I also tried going to Preferences > Privacy & Security > Saved Logins, and it didn't ask for the master password either.

Please fix this! Thanks in advance!

Just updated to Firefox 76.0

(Prior version of Firefox is working perfectly both viewing and copying passwords)

Successfully logged into my Firefox account using prior password.

All of my prior saved passwords and logins are correctly saved. (But not visible when clicking on the EYE icon.)

When I try to view any of the passwords by clicking on the EYE icon, I get a request to login. There is no combination of username and password that works.

I also am unable to copy the password.

I desperately Need help to actually see my passwords, and copy my password (by clicking on the copy button) or by clicking on the EYE icon.

I completely deleted the entire Firefox installation. I reinstalled Firefox from scratch. I successfully logged on to the Lockwise (?) Log in. It says I am correctly logged in.

Passwords remain unavailable for me to view, or copy. Clicking on the EYE icon yields another request for login. No combination of username and password that I can supply works.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this. Would very much appreciate any help you can offer.

On a newly setup Pixel 4 I installed Lockwise and connected it successfully to my Firefox account using my password, then my authenticator app (I had to switch from Lockwise to the authenticator then back to Lockwise) since I use 2FA. Then it gets stuck at a stage where it synchronizes but never ends.

I tried disconnecting / reconnecting. Nothing changes. And by the way, my Firefox for Android has an issue with Sync has well (https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1272644) I don't know if it's related.

I can't make a screenshot, it's forbidden but basically I've got no logins in it, and there is this bar at the bottom that says it's syncing.

I have the Play Store version installed released on October 31st.

I had two problems with lockwise.

- First, the time spent accessing a password. The application takes about 5sec to open and unlock, there is a 2sec clearance to access the passwords before a synchronization message hogs the application for 5min.

-Then, and this is recent, since I just tested it today: The application crashes at startup. Impossible to open it.
