Hi !

I 'd like to undo a location permission for a specific website. Before it was easy to find. Now, I can't find where to access this function.


How do I undo a permission granted to a site?

   Navigate to the site to which you’ve given permission
   Go to the Tools menu, then select Page Info
   Select the Permissions tab
   Change the setting for Share Location.

But there is no Page Info in Tools menu when I navigate to the site which I gave permission before. The only thing I can do is delete ALL permissions of ALL sites at the privacy section.

Firefox 27.0 for Android / French / Nexus 5 / Android 4.4.2

Thank you.

Untrusted connection on connecting to Wifi - no way to get past

I am very familiar with the Advanced option on getting this connection message which allows you (on the desktop) to connect anyway ("I understand the risks") and / or create an exception. This does not seem to exist in the Android product. I am running the latest version on Android 6.0.1. When I connect to Wifi at, e. g. a coffeeshop. the Untrusted Connection message appears and there is only one option, namely "Get me out of here". There seems to have been an add-on set-cert-except that would have got around this but it no longer seems to exist. As a result, in order to connect on public Wifi, I have to open Chrome, connect, then exit, then start Firefox. Which is an annoyance. Is there a way around this ?

I have specific apps that need my login/password combination to gain access to my data. These always use the same account as on the web so if I don't know my password I can look it up on firefox (desktop version) by going to:

  options -> options -> security ->saved passwords

and showing the passwords. I would like to be able to look up these passwords on my phone or tablet running firefox for Android. The passwords ARE on my mobile via firefox sync -- I can use them on websites just fine, I just want to be able to explicitly view them when necessary.

I want to know how to disable this feature in Firefox. If it cannot be disabled then I would also like two know of that. Both in the Android and desktop models this information would be appreciated. Just linking to the pages where the descriptions of this feature isn't helpful, as I need info on turning it off; not what it does and how great it is. I know both advantages, but don't want it available on my browser anymore.

How can I permanently, completely disable the Top Sites tab? It's an outrageous privacy violation. How about I come over to the houses of the people who invented it when you have guests over and tell them which websites you've been to lately? Because that's basically the same thing.

At least Google collects data for themselves and NSA without showing it to ANYONE WHO LOOKS AT YOUR PHONE.

Hi there,

I am running Firefox Mobile 26.0.1 on a Fairphone with Android 4.2.2. I am fully aware of how I should remove the History (and Top Sites): Settings -> Privacy -> Clear private data -> (selecting all) Clear data

After doing this, I even get the "Private data cleared" alert pop-up, but it has no effect! All the history and top sites are still there.

I just un- and reinstalled the app from the play-store, so there should be no add-ons present any more. Previously, I had the app "CleanQuit" installed. (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/android/addon/cleanquit/) It clears the history on closing Firefox which did indeed work. But I cannot delete the history in the way described above...

Best regards, Dieter

Firefox doesn't fill passwords when choosing from multiple stored passwords for one website

I don't understand, I seem to be the only one having this issue. I'm using Firefox on Android, and when I have multiple passwords stored for one website, the password does not automatically fill. Things work fine when I have only one password for that website: the website loads and the password automatically appears along with the username. When you have multiple passwords stored for one domain name, no password is filled but you can choose between all the saved usernames. When I choose a username, the password isn't filled.

Expected behavior: I choose one username to log in with, the password appears on its own. Actual behavior: I choose a username to log in with, but the saved password doesn't automatically fill, as if I just chose a username from a list of saved form data.

Steps to reproduce: - Use Firefox for Android. - Save 2 different usernames on a website like for example google.com. - Load the website. - Choose one of the 2 saved logins. -> Password will not appear.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug? I didn't find anything online, which is why I'm trying to find out here...

Thanks for reading!
