Since thete is no primary password on FF mobile Android. Other then using a global type lock on my phone, what are ways to keep my saved FF logins safe? I heard of something called lockbox or lockwise but don't see that option anywhere. Are the apps that can seamlessly work with FF?

Also is there someway to see a forum vs. being abstracted awaywith this gui? Or is there no forum access?

Thanks.

Whenever ZmI go 2 lookup a saved login or to enter my Android pass code 2 do the same, the keyboard to enter it refuses to show so that I can. At 1st I was using an add on keyboard called Black Red Tech from Play Store. I took that out, restarted & tried with GBoard. No change. I have restarted phone several times. Next step is uninstalling FF but I'm reluctant 2 do that. Any other ideas?? This is what the screen displays in both cases, and there is no way that talking, holding buttons or restarting seems to pop the keyboard up. This is what keyboard looks like. Screenshot of saved logins screen just is blank black.

Mostly trying to get on website I then see notation to ACTIVATE FIREFOX OR TURN ON Firefox which doesn't tell me how to turn it on, how long 42 months? to keep trying getting nowhere but frustrated

HOW DO I GET FIREFOX TO WORK FOR ME instead of me being in unpaid for indefinite term FOREVER looking thru Firefox list of my saved names and passwords and entering it myself BECAUSE ---- Maybe I'm wrong but I thought that was the whole FIREFOX EXPERIENCE, to keep track of passwords and enter them for me. Reality is every day is a game of KEEP AWAY from me any user benefit

my usernames and passwords are not syncing....i have all my passwords and usernames saved on my pc....and I’ve synced all passwords and logins and can view them on both devices. ‘Autofill in Firefox’ and ‘Autofill in other apps’ are both on. But, when logging in to apps on the Samsung, autofill doesn’t work. Even if I fill in my email address, there is no password suggestion. Instead, a small dropdown message appears: ‘unlock Firefox’. It isn’t active, and doesn’t open anything when I tap on it. Result: I have to go looking for the passwords and fill them in manually. I hope there’s a solution. thank u in advance for your help. LL

Hi, I have a problem with remembering the login details on the account - the point is that everything works fine on the browser on the computer, while on the browser on the phone (android) it sees the login details, but after selecting it, it does not complete the login fields as if there were no such data and they are, after checking the tab "saved login details" and finding the login, I manually copy the data and paste it on the page, then I log in ok. Why does the login not work with saved logins? Has anyone had or has the same problems? P.S Synchronization is done, the browser is reinstalled, it's the same on another phone

Hello

Is it possible to enable a password protection when starting the Firefox app on Android ? In special when saved passwords are used they are entered automatically and there is no additional protection of those when going on a website for which the password was saved. E.g. when somebody unlock your device the person is able to start Firefox and going through chronic or pages where you might enabled automatically password fill in. Can this be protected by pin or fingerprint?(like in the Firefox Password manager)

Thank you

As I was changing my password I believe someone else who is already hacked into my device, changed it before I could get it typed in completely. I know what I changed it to or was going to change it to but I received a notification before I completed typing it in. This is the reason I switched to the Firefox browser for the security that it has for it's accounts. Thank you in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firefox Account sometimes only works with old password (maybe from when FF Sync was separate?)

I changed my the password to my Firefox account, let's call the old one "OldPassword" and the current one "NewPassword". When I sign into accounts.firefox.com, I enter "NewPassword", and it works as expected. HOWEVER, occasionally when I try to sign into my Firefox account, it tells me that password is INCORRECT.

The most reproducible situation is when I have some sync issue and I need to sign back into my Firefox Account on mobile in order to reestablish a Sync connection between FF Mobile and FF Desktop. In this situation, entering "NewPassword" fails, but "OldPassword" works!

If I go to accounts.firefox.com/settings/change_password, and enter "OldPassword" in the Current Password field and "NewPassword" in the New Password fields, it will say that I've entered an incorrect current password. When I put "NewPassword" in the Current PW field, it accepts that as correct, but then says, "New password cannot be the same as current password."

My current theory is that Firefox Sync used to be a separate service from the Firefox Account, and users could create a password for each that didn't necessarily have to be the same (That's how it used to work, right? Am I remembering that correctly?) A few years back, Sync got integrated into Account so it all uses one password. At some point, I updated my account password to "NewPassword", but for some reason the Sync part of the system didn't get its credential updated in the same way.

Can anyone provide insight into this situation, or how to fix it? I'd really like to not have to remember two separate FF passwords and guess which one to use each time I need to sign in.

First off it set the search bar and menu at the bottom of the screen and I didn't know how to change that. Then I couldn't sync with all my account passwords and bookmarks previously saved on other apps. I had to delete the app because the idea of privacy is great and all but I need to get access to my preferred websites and accounts easily. If you can provide an easy fix I will give the app another try.

Thanks.
