Why is login information prefilling in all sites except Patreon.com?

Until today, whenever I used Firefox on Android to access sites requiring login, the login credentials always prefilled. While that might be obsolete technology, I liked it.

Now, Firefox for android has been upgraded, enhancing the system by continuing to prefill login credentials, except www.patreon.com

I realize this is ingenius, but the benefit is something I have been unable to figure out, which is why I am here instead of sleeping.

The links at the start of this quetion lead to screen shots from Android, which I could not upload from Android, but I was able to hack them into this question by sending the android screen shots to a computer, from which I was able to upload the pictures and thereby complete my hack, by linking to tghe uploaded files.

I have reason to believe the images linked above might possibly provide clarification of the nature of my problem, in the event you look at them.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

p.s. Regarding the version of Firefox I am running, I followed instructions for checking for updates on android firefox. The way it works is it says there are no updates but it does not say what version I have. That is an excellent way to minimize exposure to end users what version they are running. It just makes me wonder why you ask what version I am running, since that information is not available so far as I know.

bold textI have two devices. A mac and Android phone, both running firefox. Both are logged into the same account and kept in sync.

So how come without making any changes I sometimes find my phone not filling in the login form for paypal? Usually it is fine, but sometimes it is as if it forgets what it knows. The phone says it just synced with my account. If it happens when I am away home, I cannot login to paypal. How can this happen?

My Samsung Moto G6 recently got a security update. I just happened to be looking at it when it completed and the phone started up and saw a notification display for less 1 second that said "firefox geolocation services".

At first I thought the setting in FF had been changed by some update as Android apps update constantly. When I looked, it was still off. I saw an extra button to "learn more". You click that and scroll down to the bottom of the page and find yet another link for "learn more about opting out". That leads you to yet another page "https://location.services.mozilla.com/optout "

(So apparently turning off geolocation only stops FF from sharing it with websites but doesn't stop them from gathering that data themselves and using it for whatever they want).

On that last page I was informed I had to append "-nomap" to my routers SSID to prevent Firefox from using my geolocation data. They claim that this is a "common" way to stop many apps from gathering and using geolocation data.

Appending -nomap to my routers SSID (Lynksys EA2700) causes the parental control feature to malfunction.

I have 2 devices setup to block internet access during specific times. Appending -nomap to my SSID caused those devices internet access to be always blocked.

I appended -nomap to my routers SSID on 01.16.20 and didn't have any problem until today 01.25.20.

Rebooting the router didn't help.

Removing -nomap from the end of my SSID cured the problem and now the parental control work as before.

Having a switch to "turn off geolocation" that doesn't actually turn it off in the first place is, pardon my language, bullshit! Then having us dig through several layers of said "bullshit" to find a so called fix, is even worse.

On top of that your lame excuse and work around also causes problems with other hardware.

I recently was trying to do some editing in my Lockwise app. But when I started I was sent to a screen that asked for my PIN/Password.
