Auto Insert Login Details
Ive come back to firefox for android after a year of using other browser,bbut there is no setting i can find.
1, i visit a login page The page has the username but the password field is blank.
2, i select the link at bottom tbat says passwords.
3, a list pops up, and one of the listed items is to pick a saved password.
4, i pick the saved password, then all the urls are in the background while a thumprint security check is showing.
5, i put my thumb on the screen and now it lets me see all the saved passwords.
6, i select the correct url whos password is the right one.
7, it returns back to the original login page BLANK
It seams to me auto fill is switched on, but its not working, or the thumbnail security is blacking the transfer.
So ive deleted the url and password saved, there was only one, then ive gone to the login page and typed in the username and password, enter. Firefox asks if i wish to save the logon details, i do
But each time i go to the login page the password is blank?
I should add the url is a link to my network drives, so its an ip address like 192.168.x.xx
So ehy is android firefox no longer inserting the details, its the latest version, ive also cleared cache both, and it losds firefox as if its the first time i ran it. I set everything up to what i want, auto login is on.
I sign in with my account and sync brings back my desktop bookmarks saved logins etc.
Still there is only one url saved, ive seen this happen sometimes when thete is 2 saved logins for same url, but right now there is only one saved bookmark, and only one saved user name and password.
Anything i can do, or back to the browser i was using. Ive used the new android fitefox ever since it updated to the new one, most of the time it sat ln my phone unused, so i made sure jt had no update.
Sorry this is long, but ill be told to make sure the suto fill or auto login is on. Ive been through sll its settings.

Thank you for your question and I am sorry for the delay in replying.
I have had a look at the list of issues that have been raised with our developers and there are several that relate to password autofill. Although this relates to other apps, this one feels similar to what you are experiencing: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/24423
I hope that these issues can be resolved in a future update.
