Hi. So for quite a few months I've been experiencing two issues relating to the Firefox auto fill for login details.

Issue 1. When you visit a website sign in page the "Suggested logins" box pops up at the bottom (all normal). But then when you login the box won't go away. I can navigate to somewhere new in same tab or switch to another tab already open and the box won't disappear. To get rid of it I need to open a new tab and go to a new webpage, then I can go back to my already open tab.

Issue 2. The "Suggested logins" auto fill for sign in fields on a webpage won't work. This issue started around the same time as the first and is not on every website but a few including Google Account sign in which I use a lot. I will navigate to a sign in page, the Suggested logins box pops up, I select the login I want, but then it won't fill it in.

I've tried reinstalling the Firefox app, but it didn't work. I've kept using the app despite dealing with this everyday. They may be small bugs but they do get tedious after months of it daily. I was hoping an app update would fix the problem but no update has. So I thought I would share, see if its just me.

Firefox Android does not enter my login credentials into the blanks for some websites. The sites I’m having problems with are linuxmint forums (forums.linuxmint.com) and reddit and google.

I do not have this problem on Firefox for Linux. I do not have this problem on other websites with saved passwords on Firefox for Android.

What do these problem sites have in common, and what distinguishes them from the problem-free sites? The only thing I can think of is that for LinuxMint Forums, reddit, and Google, I have many saved passwords/credentials. I have 36 sets of credentials for reddit and 18 for Linux Mint forums and about 60 for Google.

Can someone please help me?

I have this problem for both Firefox Android regular (presently 114.2.0) and Firefox Android Beta (115.0b9). I've had this problem for a long time (probably over a year).

Autofill stopped working on Android. I try to tick on and off both the boxes for autofill in settings. It has absolutely no effect on how the browser works. When I go to a website I want to log in to, it shows suggested logins at the bottom. I can click on a selected saved user but nothing ever happens, not a single field is filled. When I turn off the autofill triggers in settings suprisingly autofill menu is still displayed on any page. Reinstalling did not work. Please help me. I was enjoying this browser but its a dealbreaker for me. My phone is Xiaomi Mi note pro 10 but I doubt it makes a difference

I have Firefox synced with my mobile and my desktop. I have a number of logins and passwords saved. When I go to a site I get suggested logins, I click on the appropriate one, and up until recently, whether on my cell or desktop it filled in and I click and can login. It recently stopped working on my cell. I can bring up the webpage, I still get suggested logins and click the appropriate one but nothing gets filled in, no user name and no password. I have logged out and relogged in, resync'd and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions before I stop using Firefox and look for another browser that works on desktop and cell?

Recently I found that I can't access to on all saved loigns and password on my phone Android Samsung. The face recognition pops out but failed to recognize and allow me to go the list. ... all things are correct on my phone. The face recognition is working, one time un-install Firefox and Re-install again, nothing fixed.

There is no other solution that even can use my pattern to unlock.

Couldn't make screen shot, the security features not allow me to do.

When I try to logon to some sites, Google Drive for instance, the input field lose focus when I click and try to use my saved logins and the field stays empty. I go to the URL, click the account name field, then the suggested logins (not sure what the exact English header says, since my settings are in Swedish), and it sort of quickly flicker and then the saved accounts and passwords comes up, but by then the field has lost its focus.

Firefox for Android 110.0.1

I have created a simple HTML login form (code pasted below). In the past it worked perfectly using Firefox on Android but now when I tap inside the email field the Suggested logins link appears above my keyboard as normal and, when I click on it, a list of suggested logins is presented as normal. If I tap on one of the suggested logins (A URL with ...... underneath representing the password) I am taken back to the login form but the suggested login has not populated the email and password fields which are still empty. So, I have to type or copy and paste the email and password into the fields in order to be able to login.

I have pasted the code below.

<meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>Document</title>

Login

<form method="post"> <label for="email-input">Email</label> <input type="email" id="email-input" name="email" required> <label for="password-input">Password</label> <input type="password" id="password-input" name="password" required> <input type="submit" id="submit-input" value="Login" name="submit"> </form>

Since a couple of weeks my autofill for passwords stored in Firefox mobile stopped working. See in the image for my Android version.

The version of my Firefox for Android app is 110.1.0

I noticed it mostly for this website, but witness it on other websites too: https://inhuur-ns-com.force.com/vms/s/login/?language=en_US

Screen recording: https://photos.app.goo.gl/brvbdXEVVwQBWXDR6

To be clear, I don't use firefox as my password manager for other apps. I just want the passwords stored by firefox for logins to work on websites I visit with firefox.

Regards,

Leon

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to report an issue that I have been experiencing since updating my Firefox mobile browser. Whenever I visit websites like "https://adsl.tci.ir/panel/" that have stored passwords, the password field appears empty after selecting the saved password.

I have tried clearing my cache and disabling any add-ons, but the issue persists. I would greatly appreciate any assistance or guidance you can provide to resolve this issue.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Best regards,

When entering a login in a other app, which I have saved in Firefox, I will see the "Unlock Firefox" button appear in my keyboard, with an icon for the fingerprint sensor which is my primary screen lock, but clicking it does nothing. Sometimes this corrects itself for a while and at random times comes back. I have found other users in the Help section having this problem but have found no solution or setting that causes it.

I use Firefox to save and autofill passwords, which has worked perfect for years. It still works correctly on a Windows PC, but the problem is on my Huawei P30 pro phone. It used to work correctly but I tried using the phones password manager for both websites and Apps, as a safety back up. I got confused because I was getting 2 lots of suggested log ons. Therefore I switched off everything apart from Firefox. Save passwords and autofill are enabled and some websites load correctly. However some websites where the family have a variety of logons I get all the suggested logons. The list of all usernames and passwords appear but when I touch them they don't automatically fill in. If I go into the password manager on Firefox on my phone all the correct details are saved but they just don't transfer to the website. It is strange because some sites do take the password - I'm not sure but I think it's when there are a variety of possible Loggins. I tried clearing all cookies, and logged out of Firefox and back in but still have the issue. Firefox sync is still working OK.
