The one killer feature Safari on a Mac has that keeps me from fully embracing Firefox is its integration with Messages for two factor security codes sent via text. In Safari, you don't have to jump over to Messages to copy and comeback to paste the code into the field. A box drops down under the field you can click on to autofill the code right there on the webpage.

Does Firefox have this ability somewhere or are there plans to add it soon? I seem to have read that Apple allows third party apps to add this integration since Big Sur.

This is the only reason I use Safari as my primary. Or at least the most significant reason.

I agree with all the above as well.  I would use Firefox 100% of the time if it had this feature built in.

I too have faith in Firefox but not so much for EVERY extension developer.

I try to go for other 2FA options, but many sites still have where it will only text a code.

+1 for the idea.

For those looking for a workaround for the time being, I use this workflow for Alfred. It's not quite as seamless as the native Safari implementation but it's close. Would be great to have it built in to Firefox though, and obviously an Alfred workflow isn't a good solution for everyone.

+1 for this idea. Like some others this is the sole reason I stick with Safari as the main browser.

The lack of this feature is why I can't use Firefox as my default. Would love to switch over if implemented.

+1 for this feature. IMO, you beat Chromium browsers to this and FireFox would get a huge bump in Mac usage.

+1 for this feature. This is big.

I second this. Literally the only thing keeping me on Safari on my mac is the autofill for mail & text 2FA codes. If FF could leverage that feature it would be the perfect cross platform browser.
