2FA glitch

more options

I have 2FA completely turned off and login to my Mozilla account works thru the browser window with password and with google single sign on, however when I try and log into my account via the integrated browser account manager thing it does a 2FA step. I can do this but why does it do this if it's TURNED OFF??? and how do we fix this behavior? Oh, and the autofill works on most sites but not on your signin page. Did you guys block password managers from filling in the login fields?

This is not an actual 2FA step as that uses an app to generate a 6-digit TOTP code.

This is merely an extra step to verify/confirm that your email address is valid. If you sign in using this Google email account then this confirms that you own this email address. If you do not disconnect this Sync account then such an extra step shouldn't be necessary.
