I'm trying to remove over 500 passwords saved in FF, I removed it on PC and it disappeared from all connected Win clients. But I can't remove it from Android - they are still in FF & Lockwise. Tell me then, why sync works between Win clients but Android client ignores deletion of passwords?

I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.

For several months, whenever I need something auto filled, the only thing that pops up is a button that reads "Unlock Firefox" instead of the appropriate saved info. This button does nothing when tapped and when held down, there is tactile click, but then nothing.

Samsung Galaxy S9 plus.

I mistakenly uninstalled Firefox, then reboored and reinstalled it. How do I recover my saved passwords?

I tried going to the Data folder, but there is only 1 folder there, "export messages", for an app that lets me print out or save existing text messages .

Help!!

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

Recently updated my galaxy s22 to android 14. Now Firefox does not suggest logins correctly for any sites. It knows that there is a saved login but the suggested option is 'purpled' out and no values are provided. Also when I navigate to settings it does not present the option to view any logins.

There is a problem with the browser. Initially, it looked like firefox was no longer the default browser.

Then I noticed that hyperlinks and buttons stopped working in Firefox itself. And if the link can be followed by a long tap (then the context menu appears), then clicking on the buttons is a problem: it is impossible to log in, send a message, etc.

Also, the buttons in the main menu stopped working. I wanted to see the saved firefox account password (to sync passwords), but the "passwords" page just wouldn't open. So - with almost all browser settings...

What did you do... 1. Checked the phone with antivirus (Kaspersky and Comodo). Phone is clean. 2. Performed a full firefox reset. Now the browser is clean. Links are working. Settings are available.

Can't set firefox as default browser. The browser is selected in the settings. But following any link from any application (for example, from Telegram or Viber) does not open in the browser.

Need help...

Firefox on Android doesn't plug in my login info (username/email address + password) into the blanks for some websites

Firefox Android does not enter my login credentials into the blanks for some websites. The sites I’m having problems with are linuxmint forums (forums.linuxmint.com) and reddit and google.

I do not have this problem on Firefox for Linux. I do not have this problem on other websites with saved passwords on Firefox for Android.

What do these problem sites have in common, and what distinguishes them from the problem-free sites? The only thing I can think of is that for LinuxMint Forums, reddit, and Google, I have many saved passwords/credentials. I have 36 sets of credentials for reddit and 18 for Linux Mint forums and about 60 for Google.

Can someone please help me?

I have this problem for both Firefox Android regular (presently 114.2.0) and Firefox Android Beta (115.0b9). I've had this problem for a long time (probably over a year).

Autofill stopped working on Android. I try to tick on and off both the boxes for autofill in settings. It has absolutely no effect on how the browser works. When I go to a website I want to log in to, it shows suggested logins at the bottom. I can click on a selected saved user but nothing ever happens, not a single field is filled. When I turn off the autofill triggers in settings suprisingly autofill menu is still displayed on any page. Reinstalling did not work. Please help me. I was enjoying this browser but its a dealbreaker for me. My phone is Xiaomi Mi note pro 10 but I doubt it makes a difference

I have Firefox synced with my mobile and my desktop. I have a number of logins and passwords saved. When I go to a site I get suggested logins, I click on the appropriate one, and up until recently, whether on my cell or desktop it filled in and I click and can login. It recently stopped working on my cell. I can bring up the webpage, I still get suggested logins and click the appropriate one but nothing gets filled in, no user name and no password. I have logged out and relogged in, resync'd and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions before I stop using Firefox and look for another browser that works on desktop and cell?
