Autofill in other apps not working

Since 3 or 4 versions ago "autofill in other apps" doesn't work for me or my wife at all. I'm currently running Firefox for Android version 101.2 on a Pixel 6 Pro. My wife is running the same browser version on a Galaxy S22.

The feature worked great when it was first introduced several months ago but like I said above, it stopped working properly about 3 or 4 browser versions ago. It'll still show the "unlock Firefox" fingerprint icon in the keyboard text options, but when pressed & fingerprint verified nothing happens.

I was really hoping Mozilla would have this patched by now, as it's such an essential feature, but that hasn't happened yet. Please fix this! Thank you.

Hi Colin

Which apps is Firefox for Android not autofilling? Can you give any examples?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. This issue happens with any app we launch that needs a login on either of our aforementioned devices. This functionality used to work flawlessly with these same apps & devices up until 3 or 4 browser versions back.

After posting this I double checked bugzilla/github & noticed at least 4 filed bugs regarding this issue dating back to March 2022, which squares with my experience with the issue. All of these open bugs have "needs triage" status, so I'm assuming there's no fix or patch for now.
