I am using Firefox browser on my Samsung Android phone. I set it up to use Firefox password autofill as the default. When entering an ID and password , I am offered a list of IDs and starred passwords, and I cant tell which is the right one, as most IDs are my email. It does not suggest one or two passwords for that particular web address, as does my PC laptop.

Sogning into an account on Firefox for Android is no longer possible

When I try to sign into my account on mobile (the app itself, not the site since clearly on the website I'm signed in) I get to a white screen that shows a bunch of details of my account status. I am not allowed to progress past this screen. Any way I leave that screen, closing the app, using back, praying the 'x' in they lower left corner, reverts my login. So sync is not allowed on FF mobile anymore? I wish they wouldn't still list it as an option in the app if it's depreciated and no longer supported. If this is a bug, well you got me since FF also doesn't allow bug reporting.

Hi there Why does Firefox 102.1 Android sometimes show "Install" instead of "Add to Home Screen" in the dropdown menu when I want to add a website page to my home screen? Why does it do this with some sites and not with others? Can I prevent Firefox from showing "Install"? Thanks for any help. Ian

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/uk (several million uniques visitors per month)

Expected behaviour: I am able to open various links on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 40 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addins installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behaviour. This ia FF Android specific

Thanks!

The + button in the menu that normally opens a new tab doesn't work anymore. The only way to open a new tab is by hitting one of the buttons on the top that normally show the history. When I press the + button either nothing happens or some Chinese add will load, and that ad takes me to a jd.com link that actually doesn't load. I have tried installing a virus scanner, clearing the cache, and reinstalling, but it didn't help. I am using an oppo find x2 pro and am living in China if that helps.

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).

I use firefox with both my PC as well as my samsung smart phone. The android version of Firefox overlaps the Items that are displayed. If I am looking for an item, such as a drill, It displays multiple pictures of drills offered by different companies. The displays are not correct as it shows the bottom part of each one in the middle part of what is displayed. You do not see the complete picture of what is being shown.
