Firefox supports WebAuthn, but as far as I could tell only with hardware tokens. I could not find a word about Firefoxs support of Passkeys (like Apple announced recently) anywhere

Personally I don't know why passkeys werent adopted much sooner, it seems such a long hanging fruit to just store the key in the FF password manager.

I use FF to support a web where there is not only one option, like Chrome, but FF keeps falling behind and behind instead of being at the forefront. This should be a top priority.

Chrome on MacOS supports storing passkeys in a local profile, which I use for Duo Push 2FA. This is better than using iCloud Keychain, because the iCloud popup is very slow, which makes a frustrating difference when you have to use it multiple times per hour. This is the only restriction preventing me from fully switching over to Firefox.

What's the expected timeline for cross-device passkey support (i.e a QR code that lets you use a passkey on desktop with your phone)?

I'd also love something similar to Chrome's QR code passkey solution! It would also make using passkeys semi-usable in linux for the time being

I'm surprised to see that passkeys at v119.0.1 are finally working! I can login by scanning a QRCode (this was implemented a few updates ago) and now by notification on my phone! Too bad that apparently Windows 11 is broken and it can't save the passkey... (tried on Edge and got exactly the same error)

I don't know who's responsive for what, but since a few weeks ago I was able to login by scanning the Qr Code with my phone, and now at v119.0.1 my phone was added to Windows Hello and I receive a notification to login (and confirm by using fingerprint), too bad that apparently W11 is broken and can't save the passkey (Edge gives the same error).

Tho my tests are limited to Passkeys.io and Authentik.

Accessing Mozilla account with passkey

Hi, it would be very useful and innovative to be able to access the Mozilla account via passkey. Thank you

On Windows i can login via scanning a QR-Code and use the passkey from my phone, will this also come to Firefox for macOS?

This does not seem to have landed in v120 as originally estimated. Is it possible to get an updated estimate for version/date?

Please include Passkey support.

Support for Passkeys is a top priority for us, and the team is actively working on it. However, due to some stability issues, we have decided to spend more time on testing and postpone its release. The next planned target for enabling Passkeys is Firefox 122.

Stay tuned; I will keep this thread updated.

Thank you for your patience!
