On Firefox the normal Android FIDO/U2F/WebAuth screen does not show up that lets you select if you want to auth with an on-device security key, an NFC key, or a USB key.

Instead, a custom pop-up shows which has no support for USB or NFC keys (like the YubiKey).

Could Firefox please either add support for USB/NFC security keys or just use the built-in android security key feature which already supports this.

I sent a kudo and also wanted to say this would be very helpful for me.

This may prevent me from being able to use Firefox on my phone ☹️

I had to open chrome on android to add a new security key I got.... 🤮

Strollin' around

We need this feature. I have Yubikey registered on all important sites which support it.
I needed to use Chrome recently to access urgently AWS

You can click "Use a different device" (from the dialog in the screenshot) and then it will offer NFC or USB security keys. However, they don't actually work! It'll detect the key (via either USB or NFC), but they don't work. It never asks for the passphrase, just reports an error as soon as I tap the Yubikey (via either USB or NFC).

I don't know if they'd work if I didn't have a passphrase on the key, but this is kind of a big problem! Chrome doesn't support NFC keys at all, but USB works fine.

NFC Yubikey used to work for me, but it no longer does. This is a bummer, I don't want to use any "passkeys", I want to use my secure hardware security token.
