Firefox for Android 91/98/101 (Beta) - Proxy authentication - Login credentials will not be stored

Hi all, in Firefox for Android (in the following I will always mean "Firefox for Android" when mentioning "Firefox") 78 it was possible to store login credentials, which were used to authenticate on a web proxy. The web proxy is a "squid" web proxy with enabled user authentication.

With Firefox 91 (I have not determined since which version exactly the behavior was changed, we "jumped" from Firefox 78 to 91) the web proxy asks for the login credentials and the authentication itself is working, but Firefox 78 would prompt the question, whether the user wants to store the credentials. This prompt will not be shown in Firefox 91. Additionally I have tested Firefox 98 and 101, there the prompt will be shown and the credentials will be stored (I can look the credentials up in the Firefox Password Manager), but they will not be "auto-filled" when accessing the web proxy again, after closing the Firefox.

My questions regarding this issue: Does someone know patch notes, where this behavior is mentioned? Does someone know, if this is on any "Mozilla Buglist/Featurelist"? -> before the hint will be given "use the search" -> Does someone know, what the underlying mechanism is, so that I am able to look it up?

Thanks, I appreciate any hint or suggestion (like raising it as bug/feature or possible workarounds).

Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

«HTTPS Only Mode versus HTTPS Everywhere (Add-on)»

1. ¿Hay que desactivar uno de los dos sistemas de seguridad "HTTPS" en favor del otro para que todo funcione correctamente?

1. ¿Do you have to disable one of the two "HTTPS" security systems in favor of the other for everything to work properly?

2. ¿Pueden coexistir y funcionar al mismo tiempo ambos sistemas de seguridad "HTTPS" sin que se interfieran mutuamente?

2. ¿Can both "HTTPS" security systems coexist and work at the same time without interfering with each other?

Prevent invalidated fingerprint from accessing saved logins

Hello,

I have a security suggestion for Firefox for Android.

Android API allows apps to be aware that a new fingerprint was enrolled in the device, preventing potentially unauthorized access to apps (in case of a leaked PIN or device theft). https://developer.android.com/reference/android/security/keystore/KeyPermanentlyInvalidatedException

For me, it will be a great security improvement if Firefox could be able to detect new fingerprints enrollment in my device and prevent access to my passwords, maybe asking for my Firefox account password one more time.

Thanks!

Each time the Firefox App is opened, it is logged and sent to Off-Facebook Activity

I try to be on top of my digital privacy, and try to enable all privacy related options available, but I just learned that for a number of month, Firefox mobile had been sending each app open to Facebook which they logged in their "Off-Facebook Activity". Attached is a section of that downloaded report.

Why is Firefox doing this, and how can I stop it? Based on the work put in to make the Facebook container, I'd imagine that Firefox is trying to protect user's data, but here it's looking like they're turning around and just sending them that data directly

I have the "Autofill in other apps" service set to Firefox but when I attempt to enter a password in any app, I get a message taht says "Unlock Firefox." Tapping on this message does nothing; the message just keeps popping up. No password options appear. If I manually start typing the password, the message goes away, but I am not able to autofill passwords in apps.

If I turn the Autofill in other apps service off, at least I don't get the annoying message, but I'd really like to be able to autofill the passwords. Any suggestions?

Firefox version 95.2.0 (Build #: 2015851755) Android version: 10 Phone: Moto Z4

Thanks!
