What's the issue here, if anybody could help I'd be much obliged. Thank you.

The only advice available right now is using Nightly version as if I'm ready to sacrifice stability over about: config access. The main question is, why was it removed? Is it really accessible in Nightly if the advice was for 79 and I'm on 81 already that I guess should have included changes from Nightly of two versions prior.

Do I need to keep Chrome and Android System Webview updated even though I no longer use Chrome?? I'm a faithful user of Firefox For Android and I don't have any use for Chrome/ASW but I've never been 100% certain that I could leave chrome behind without updates. I'm in that long slowgoing breakup with Google Products but at the same time I want to be certain I'm not causing any harm or security issues with my devices while doing so. Thank you in advance for your time and help

Hi,

I am an avid user of Firefox on Windows/Linux/Android. The password saving/auto-filling works great on my Windows and Linux devices. I like that the master password allows me to authenticate before any user credentials are filled in. I did however notice that on my Android Phone, there's no way to force authentication when filling in user credentials. I consider this a great privacy risk, considering that if anyone were to get access to my phone, they would without any hassle get access to a bunch of my accounts. I checked in the settings, and I cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

I am running the latest version of Firefox from Google Play. Firefox version: 84.1.4 (Build #2015785883) Phone: Samsung S10 running Android 10

Thank you.

On my Android phone I cannot type in a URL and have Firefox take me there directly. Google (or some other search engine) sees and processes everything I type. On my desktop Firefox I can type a URL into the address bar without Google seeing it. (AFAIK.)

I don't want any search engine knowing a URL I type in. I want Firefox to drop it on the Internet to be resolved by the DNS.
