firefoxを使用していると、段々データが肥大していき、プライベートデータの消去のレスポンスが極端に悪くなる。

androidの「設定」→「アプリケーション」でfirefoxの情報を参照するとインストール直後にくらべ、データの大きさが極端に肥大している。 これにともない、プライベートデータの消去のレスポンスが段々悪くなっていく。

プライベートデータの消去で、実際には履歴の消去が行われていないのではないでしょううか?

I have specific apps that need my login/password combination to gain access to my data. These always use the same account as on the web so if I don't know my password I can look it up on firefox (desktop version) by going to:

  options -> options -> security ->saved passwords

and showing the passwords. I would like to be able to look up these passwords on my phone or tablet running firefox for Android. The passwords ARE on my mobile via firefox sync -- I can use them on websites just fine, I just want to be able to explicitly view them when necessary.

I was looking at a first tab on ultimateguitar.com (on Firefox mobile on my nexus 4) when I saw the gray message box appear briefly at the bottom of my screen, telling me "installation complete". I'm wondering what was installed? the site apparently has an app but I didn't accept any installation and no new apps appear to be on my phone. I've also check Firefox for new add ons - none. Could this have just been a background installation of an update to an app I already have?

Locking as a duplicate please continue with /questions/965066 ~J99

I'm running Android 4.1.1 Firefox for Android v22 Acer Iconia tablet. so when I follow the instructions to go to Settings and delete all the private data I expect all history and cache to be deleted except. After I get the "private data deleted" confirmation if I open a new tab all the history is still there. This is an undesirable 'feature'

The sync with other devices is manual - I do it every week or so it's not much use to me

before I uninstall and use a different browser as my default, what's stopping the browser from behaving as I expect it to.

I accidentally tapped deny when I was trying to share my location with a website, and I can't find a way to change this setting. The instructions at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/geolocation/ seemed like they would help, but there is no 'Page Info' options under the Tools menu.

Using latest Firefox Beta for Android.

Usability issues and security concerns regarding password sync with a master password

I setup up password sync with my desktop installations and observe the following behaviours which raise major questions for me:

  1. Desktop passwords do not appear at all
  2. Deleting the private data via Android does not clear the sync, but drops master password
  3. Retrieving saved passwords for mobile login sites

Desktop passwords do not appear at all

I'm not sure if this is due to different page URLs for the mobile login pages. But even when I go to the desktop pages I only see the usernames but the passwords stay blank. Even worse: I did not find any means to check if and which passwords at all are available on the device

Deleting the private data via Android does not clear the sync, but drops master password

After clearing/removing the stored data via Android, Firefox appears clean & vanilla but the Sync links seems still in operation but now without any master password!

I'm not sure if the Firefox UI is fooling me here, because it reports successful password synchronization after that. For me it appears, that this way a adversary would have easy way to circumvent any master password as soon as he has has physical access to my device.

Retrieving saved passwords for mobile login sites

On the desktop version on a regular basis I need to copy existing passwords into modified website forms. Therefore I use the saved password dialog to reveal and paste existing passwords. How would I do that when I'm on the road?


So - how do people use this feature successfully and safely at all?
