From what I've heard Firefox for desktop has a password generator, which is great, but firefox for mobile does not, even though the Lockwise app had it. I think password generation is very important, since not having to remember difficult passwords is the main perk of a password manager. googling for password generation on mobile is less convinient than on a desktop, so I wouldn't be surprised if people just don't do that. Adding password generation to mobile firefox would really improve my user experience 🙂

This is so important, I just couldn't believe this is not possible in the android browser.

Yes, please. I found this page while googling to see if I had missed something. I love the feature on desktop, it's convenient.

It'd be extremely useful for accounts that frequently require a password change (work, university, public administration, ecc...). Come on, keep this in trending ideas, thumbs up. Hope it's gonna be implemented. Thank you

If I new where, I'd offer my time as a software engineer to make a Pull Request of sorts. It'd be really useful and it's already present in the desktop variants anyway so what's the difficulty on this one? I'd guess one could reuse quite some functionality, though designing the UI/UX might take a little bit. Then again I'd try to just add it into the list of suggested passwords.. just have it suggest a random password according to some, possibly high, standard.

+1 This will be a great thing to have new password suggestions like in the desktop app.

Absolutely! Two years later, mobile Firefox still is missing that feature. I'm desperate.

Agreed. Password generation is such a nice feature of Firefox Desktop. I use it all the time and it feels awkward now that it is not available on Firefox Mobile.
