Hello everyone

I couldn't find the answer looking here at support page.

Scenario:

1.Link received by WhatsApp 2.Hit the link launched Firefox (which is my default phone browser) and Firefox displayed the google form 3.Google form API automatically filled the form email field with google account email

Question: from where google form get the email address data'

I made several tests and I can confirm Firefox allows google form API to read my phone settings. Cos, If I send the link to another phone with a different google account the behavior is the same: once link is open the google form autofill the email field with the google account email on that phone.

Isn't supposed FF will block tracking stuff?

This is not related with auto fill settings. I also made that test too, by wiping history data and results are the same. In fact the google form displays the message 'not your account? change it'

I would like to know if I can change this behavior on FF and if possible, why is not enabled by default. This kind of settings does not provide privacy at all.

Hi all!

To test this I did a complete fresh install of Firefox on Android. After installation I paired Firefox with my account via firefox.com/pair. On my PC the main password is activated and supposed to protect my passwords via encryption. After pairing and enabling the password sync option all my stored passwords are available on the Android phone. And I even can have a look at them in clear text.

This is a huge problem since it never asked me for my main password. This password is supposed to be required to decrypt this data. Which means this data is not encrypted on the Firefox servers. Which in turn means even my passwords I use on the PC are not secure.

According to all documentation I read until now I was assuming my data is only stored encrypted and can only be restored with the main password. Right now I don't really know what to do. I require a secure password store.

Many Greetings! Remo

Why does FF make you search all over again for logins/passwords? If I search for a login and get multiple hits and after I look at one and click the back button I have to search all over again to get back to the same results. Is this a feature or a bug? Is there a setting I need to change? If it's a feature can you add a feature that lets us go back to the same results if we click the back button?

Thank you, Matt

In delete history settings I would assume that the deletion of history option is there to avoid anyone picking up the phone (including a repairer) and seeing where one has been. I'm surprised that there isn't an option to close all tabs within say 10 minutes and 1 minute. Could this option be ae please.
