Facebooks setting to open links externally is one of those that doesnt work.

I'm about to cry. Firefox is my default browser. I DO NOT WANT TO USE CHROME!! IDK WHATS WRONG but this is the 4th time I'm trying to post. I've been doing this for two hours because I need HELP!! I get thrown out of my acct as soon as I tap post. I will be happy to go into it all again if I can talk to someone. I'm not getting my emails now. Server not found error. I'm using cloudflare 1.1.1.1 with vpn installed on a new device. I was hacked 4 months ago and have been as careful as I know how. While viewing on galaxy play my phone started downloading a paid app. I checked dns log n tried to send to cloudflare but couldn't get a connection. I tried opening borrington logs and was forced to use chrome/google which are at risk so I didn't want any of my information going through them but had no choice. Someone PLZ REPLY IF THIS POSTS. I have another device that's synced with this one Im getting emails as of now. I will stay by my phone. I'm afraid to tap anything other than post as I will b thrown out.

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!

Firefox root CA Cert Import

I'm trying to import a CA cert on Firefox on android, there isn't a way to import the same way as on the desktop version, from settings. I've tried putting the CA Cert on a website and downloading it, I've read that using this method Firefox would recognize that it is a CA cert, and offer to install it. I've also tried using the file:///path/to/ca/cert.crt but it just opens it as a text file.

how can I import a CA cert file on Firefox Android? is there an add-on, or ADB command? a way with root on android? a separate app to import it? How is this done?

Hello again. As I suspected I would have the majority of my day consumed with this issue but I can see that Firefox has mad some type of adjustments and I thank you greatly. So I revoked my "special" from my Firefox account, signed all devices out except the one I'm using in the web session, reset my password and checked my devices. I was signed out on my two Samsung's but the android device was still signed in on the Device. The password however hadn't been updated yet so I removed sync and account from the Android. I signed in on the 2 Samsung's and synced. I then went to my firefox account and was signed into my account on the two Samsung's and 6 other web sessions that don't match my Samsung's. What do I do other than disconnect them? Can I somehow only authorize access for the devices I have? Due to the end resolver and VPN MY ip changes but the type of device is wrong. Also google said I had logged out of my account while handling this and I haven't even looked at Google. But when I did ck, it says I'm logged in with 4 devices. I only have 3 registered on google play and the login activity was all done in the last 15 mins and I haven't messed with my other 2 phones except to confirm logins for firefox. Somebody PLEASE tell me I'm missing something here?????

Passwords seem to be UNPROTECTED on phone

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.
