Using FF 101 on Andtoid phone. If I do not use Android's "general" PW then how do I protect FF PWs if I

lend to a friend for a minute? There's no primary PW. So how's it done? Is there any change FF will ever have a primary (master) PW again? Thanks

I couldn't even get on Google yesterday because the hackers are so smart or they just have a great device to hack accounts and I want you to send the hackers to prison ASAP. I already know that they are my at least 2 neighbors and 1 I rent to now and then the other hackers are staying so close to my garage that they can get into my spectrum wifi router and then they have broken into my garage and stole my passwords and then over $1,000.00 in cash and gold, etc. This is a brand new Gmail account now and they have probably seen the passwords already I would think!!!

I have to be honest with you guys, this is something completely new to me. But as I said before, I want to learn and maybe if you approve my human talents I could be a part of your team.

The reason I am here is because I am worried about the insecurity on internet. I have been using it for years but now I realize every single person is vulnerable. I honestly did not know how easy they can steal your information from your computers, or any device you use to surf on the web. And that is not right. I think that situation has to change and if there is any way I could help to generate a change i am here.

The lack of a JavaScript switch in Firefox (Android) - why?

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?

password completion fails for moz-proxy:// on Android

Hi. I use Firefox Nightly and I enabled a secure proxy over TLS using only the built-in features, no addons.

My about:config : network.proxy.type = 2 network.proxy.autoconfigurl = data:text/plain,function FindProxyForURL(u,h){return "HTTPS my-secure-proxy:443";}

When I open any site for the first time it asks for the proxy credentials as expected: The proxy moz-proxy://my-secure-proxy:443 is requesting a username and a password.

After entering the credentials I confirm to save them and as long as the Firefox app is not stopped it works. However, when the app is restarted it asks for the password again with both fields blank and after entering the same credentials it asks me to update the saved credentials.

This only happens on Android. Firefox for Windows with the same proxy settings can autocomplete the moz-proxy:// password.

I think it has something to do with the OS keyring unable to store the passwords for unknown URI schemas.

Is there some workaround for that?
