I've recently picked up a new Pixel phone with Android 14 to replace my aging Samsung, and I'm having issues with the account login on Firefox. On my old device, attempting to use a Google service would offer the option to login using one of my device accounts. On my new device however, it just asks for a password. I'm not really sure what could have changed here other than maybe something related to Android versions but there's no setting I can find to fix this. I know it's a small issue but it is a nuisance and I would much prefer using the Android account service rather than having to manually log in with a password every time my session expires. Is there any way to fix this?

Nevermind, I don't know if something has changed or if I'm just remembering wrong but this isn't working on my old phone either. I wound up switching to passkeys which is close enough to the result I was after (signing in within the device without needing my password)
