This is on a new Nexus 5 phone. I tried using the supplied Chrome browser and was disappointed to find that clearing the cache (through Chrome or Android settings/apps), did not work. Old visited websites and tabs were still present upon re-starting. I just installed Firefox and it has the same problem. I have no bookmarks stored. Is there a solution to this?

On certain sites that should be secure, it says 'insecure connection' This has been happening for a month or more.

I tried force stopping my anti malware software to see if it was causing this and it wasn't. I also tried disabling a add on I recently installed and it wasn't causing the problem either. This concerns me because this may compromise my security.

I have a CoolPad which is Android and did not get a Master Password option. I went to their forum and asked them about this and they said there was no MPW option as there is a problem in the android logic and they cannot fix it.

So here in this forum it is stated there IS a MPW option but I still don't see it on my FF on my smart phone. Also, can you sync that same phone with a MPW (if indeed there is a MPW option). Did I somehow download an old FF version or something? It was only a couple months ago I downloaded it.

What am I not doing/seeing?

I accidentally tapped deny when I was trying to share my location with a website, and I can't find a way to change this setting. The instructions at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/geolocation/ seemed like they would help, but there is no 'Page Info' options under the Tools menu.

Using latest Firefox Beta for Android.

Hello,

After upgrading to FF for Android v31.0, I found that I can't change a saved site login username and password. I can enter the new details and login to the site, but these details are not being updated in FF. So the next time I visit that site, I'm shown the old details again.

How do I fix this?

Thanks. :)
