i installed FF 72.0.1 just for testing MBG, to see how it was performing at "infowars.com." when i tested MBG it worked fine. no issues.

however, earlier, using MBG with the mobile version of FF, on my android tablet, i was having some issues...

Thank you for the feedback @redwolfe_98

For others reading though, just a reminder that we currently do not support Malwarebytes Browser Guard on Firefox on Android

Saving passwords in a browser is a very bad idea and not recommended. Recommend that you use a password manager instead.
Updating a password from a computer that is possibly infected is also a bad practice.

STOP giving up security for convenience is one of the first steps in improving your security

It's a known issue. These updates appear to come out before they are mainstream officially announced by the normal Mozilla channel.

Personally I wish Mozilla would remove or otherwise reconcile this issue.

Mozilla Firefox to let you export saved passwords in plain text

If you are saving passwords in your browser then yes, save and export them to a dedicated password manager. Then go back and delete all of those passwords in the browser.
