Before upgrading from version 68, as instructed I first removed the master/primary password I'd been using for years. I had thought this was going to be replaced with the phones own biometric fingerprint check.

Now if I open the list of stored passwords via settings option, that is actually the case. But in normal use, when going to a website with a login page, the stored password is just being auto filled in without any kind of security check being asked for. Is that how it's intended to work? If so, in my view it's not very secure at all.

(Yes, I've posted this question once already, but had absolutely no replies. Could some mozzilian PLEASE break off from making all those improvements you keep promising, just to say yes, that's how it's meant to be, we think it's safe, or no, something's not right there. Thanks.)

I almost always have to tap multiple times....like 7 or 8 times ... to get a link to open. This happens on almost all sites...google, mozilla.org, my own site. Responses are immediate if I go into FireFox settings and tap around. Also, all other taps are immediate...like mail, calculator, etc. That includes tapping a link in an email. The page will open with one tap but then any links on the page will take many taps.

The phone is a Sony Model G8441 running Android 9. Build number 47.2.A.11.228

Using Firefox mobile 83.1

Any link opened from the start-page opens in a new tab. Once opened there is no back button in the browser to return to the start-page. What is strange is that the device back/return button works and returns you to the start page but there again any link opened goes to a new tab. The back button should ideally return to the start-page within the same tab, that is what the old firefox would do and what all other mobile browsers still do.

Another thing I feel pretty weird is that any link copied comes up as "fill link from clipboard". That is useful but the option stays even if the link is opened and even if firefox is closed. Basically as long as it stays in clipboard it keeps showing up.

Is these two behaviors expected in the new firefox. Let me know your opinions.

Past versions of Firefox for android allowed me to automatically see sites in desktop view. I am no longer able to do that and it is a pain in the touche to manually set it for each site. I would prefer to use Firefox becauee of its security and privacy features. But between this issue and a VPN problem, I will use other browsers unless someone has a workaround. Please let me know, if so.

I have had Firefox Nightly installed on my android device for years with no issues. About two months ago, I started to experience an issue where nightly would not load any sites at all while I had the AdGuard app running. I am able to browse social media/ YouTube with no connection issues at all. I am also able to load traffic while in Chrome for Android and Firefox Focus. The regular version of Firefox and Nightly are the ones that do not load unless I deactivate AdGuard. I have uninstalled and installed all browsers with their standard tracking protection settings and have not messed with any other settings at all. This is not an AdGuard issue since the traffic loads with no problems on other browsers other than the ones mentioned. This happens on multiple Android devices exactly as described.
