synced passwords and logins autofill on Android 11
I'm using Firefox 93 on Macbook air and Firefox 93.2 on Android 11 (Samsung S10). I’ve synced all passwords and logins and can view them on both devices. ‘Autofill in Firefox’ and ‘Autofill in other apps’ are both on. But, when logging in to apps on the Samsung, autofill doesn’t work. Even if I fill in my email address, there is no password suggestion. Instead, a small dropdown message appears: ‘unlock Firefox’. It isn’t active, and doesn’t open anything when I tap on it. Result: I have to go looking for the passwords and fill them in manually. I hope there’s a solution. Thanks for your help

Is "Autofill in other apps" selected in the Firefox for Android password settings?
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, "Autofill in other apps" is selected in the Firefox for Android password settings on the phone.
In the password settings I can choose the autofill for Firefox or for Lockwise. If I choose Firefox, autofill doesn't work on the app I use (BBC) but does work on websites. If I choose Lockwise, autofill works on the BBC app, and on websites.
On 3 recently installed apps (all 3 electric car charging apps), Lockwise works fine on one.
On another it fills in the password in the username space.
On the third it doesn't appear at all, it's as if it didn't exist. On this particular app, when I fill in the PW manually the phone automatically directs to Fingerprints (which I haven't activated). Could there be some interference from a phone setting?
Could it be the apps that are causing the dysfunction?
If you open the Android Settings app (typically a cogwheel icon) select System and Languages and input, you should see an option for Auto-fill service.
Which app do you have selected? Does the behaviour you are seeing change if you select Firefox?
For Seburo...there is no "cog wheel" ....desktop has three bars, mobile has three dots. Everything is under those menus.
Now, I've got the same problem. Firefox refuses to pick up the app's login prompts, instead sometimes just flashes the "Unlock Firefox" prompt in a box below the password, other times just doesn't offer any suggestions and just does nothing. Zip Nada. As for the "Unlock FireFox"...what? Selecting it, as kL mentioned, does nothing.
Running the most current version of FF on Android with the password manager baked in to the code. Never had the separate LockWise app installed and the only app selected to provide passwords is Firefox. Google is in the list but is NOT selected and doesn't offer anyway. The web page entry to a site works just fine in mobile and desktop.
I'm suspecting an external app problem, not FF, but could be wrong. All of the info I've found refers to desktop and is useless for mobile, such as...
Mostly useless. Guess I'll have to load up BitWarden and see if that behaves......
