Make it possible for websites to make a Login with Firefox option available so we have a trusted privacy preserving option given to us (and give Firefox some visibility)

I managed to find some piece of history https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Persona

I think there's some current thought going into something like this as well. Decentralized identity? Federated identity? Those keywords have been thrown around.

I've seen a pointer to https://gitlab.com/bluesky-community1/decentralized-ecosystem/-/blob/master/README.md (unrelated to Mozilla, but contains thinking around identity.) I believe this has come up in the "wtf could blockchains be good for?" discussion.

I really wish BrowserId had gone somewhere.

If there's a centralized authority, it seems like you could have it issue as many identities per account as you want. Heck, Firefox Relay already does something like this, splitting one email into multiple. But this is tricky stuff that I don't understand very well, so I dunno.

Does Firefox have password generator, because they do have apps that read passwords. Its just a thought.

I like the overall idea of it, it would be interesting if Mozilla brought Persona back. I would trust it and use it over "Sign in with Google/Facebook/ect".

@Margie1984do you mean this? If so, then yes. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-generate-secure-password-firefox

If this feature is implemented, I would like to see biometric authentication introduced at the same time.

One feature I would love is better support for "basic authentication". I mean, when you have an .htaccess file on the server and the site asks you for username and password.

I am in the kinda sad situation that I need multiple users on such a site. But Firefox only allows me to store one username/password combination per host. But I concede, it is probably more of an edge case.

I agree 100%. Firefox (Mozilla) has earned the peoples trust over many years. Kudos dude 🙂

@crabelI think it's actually quite common scenario, especially for admins, testers or developers. I've found this bug that seems to be related.
