Fingerprint or PIN security of stored passwords

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.)

Hello all! I'd like to know a way to partially erase some history entries on FF for Android: I'll try to explain with an example! I have about 6000 pages stored in history many of them being yahoo redundancies!

With previous versions of FF, I could just go to History then type the adress yahoo.com and then the browser would filter the entries and display only those containing yahoo.com but that isn't possible with the latest versions eversince the early August releases.

Anyone has a clue as to what I can do about it? I would be very appreciative! Thanks all and have a good day! Cheers!

If I open my DD-WRT router status webpage in Firefox on Android it always prompts me to enter username and password. This is despite there being a saved name and password for the site. Is this a feature of the browser on Android? It works fine on the Windows version.

More detail: this is not a webpage form where the details are entered, the browser is challenged for the details before anything will be shown. The desktop Firefox automatically fills in the login in the popup challenge dialog, the Android version does not fill it in.

Hi, I got scammed by a tax refund scam. I clicked the link from a text message, and opened it on Firefox on the Phone. Inserted sensitive information, including name, phone number address and other usual security questions. When I clicked submit I got the 'Deceptive site issue' which was when I realised I was duped. I attached the screen here.

I want to know now if the information inserted has been intercepted by Fiefox or if it got through, and if there was a way to check this.

Do I need to keep Chrome and Android System Webview updated even though I no longer use Chrome?? I'm a faithful user of Firefox For Android and I don't have any use for Chrome/ASW but I've never been 100% certain that I could leave chrome behind without updates. I'm in that long slowgoing breakup with Google Products but at the same time I want to be certain I'm not causing any harm or security issues with my devices while doing so. Thank you in advance for your time and help

I have some webservices in my local network, which I want to secure with HTTPS. So I created my own self signed Certificate Authority and generated so some certificates for these services, signed by my CA.

My question is: How can I add the CAs certificate to the list of trusted authority certificates in my Firefox Fenix installation? I can't find such an option in the Fenix settings.

(This works well for my Firefox desktop installation, but I want to use this on my Android smartphone, too.)

Having very reluctantly upgraded FF on my phone, it's now on Daylight 82.1.1 I removed the master password before the upgrade. I now find when visiting a website login page, usernames and passwords are being filled in automatically for me. Previously I would have had to type the master password in order for that to work. On a desktop this is fine. But on a phone, likely to be lost, stolen or fiddled with, it's just unsafe. I thought FF was going to use the phone's security - prompting for a fingerprint or pin? This is not happening for me. The only time it requests fingerprint/pin is when clicking on Settings/Logins and passwords/Saved logins. That's great as far as it goes, but surely it ought to do the same check before auto filling passwords? Don't really care if this is a bug or by design, there must be a security check before allowing use of stored passwords. Make it optional if some folks disagree, but personally I can't use or trust FF like this.

Lockwise is locked, but "suggested logins" still displays my usernames and passwords

I noticed this morning that when I went to a site that I've stored a password etc for, I wasn't asked for the old "Master Password" (I know - now "primary Password") - instead, when I tapped on "password" a purple "suggested logins" displayed, and below that, the stored username and password. Obviously, this is not secure - if my phone was stolen, the consequences of access to stored credentials could be devastating.

I went to "settings > "Logins and passwords" but no triple dot option. More research produced all the info on "lockwise", which I installed. I'm using the fingerprint sensor to unlock. That part works.

However, EVEN WHEN LOCKWISE IS LOCKED I can still get the password etc. as I described above: go to a website where I've stored a password, tap on either "user" or "password", and get TWO responses: 1. "Unlock Firefox Lockwise", then, below that, "suggested logins" with the user/password info that should be protected by Lockwise below that. I've tried to attach a screenshot (without my credentials, but they're there. The "loading" circle's still going tho', so I don't know if it'll show).

So Lockwise kicks in, but there's a parallel option that bypasses Lockwise.

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox.

In the Firefox "settings" > "logins and passwords" there's still no triple dots (I realize this may now be unnecessary, because of Lockwise). When I tap on "Saved logins" it tells me to "Unlock to view your saved logins" BUT I still have access to them on the individual sites.

I'm using a Galaxy S8 Active, Firefox 82.1.1. Android version 9, Norton 360/Lifelock.

WHAT I WANT: to stop getting the "suggested logins" and credential info UNTIL I've opened/accessed them through Lockwise.

Thanks!
