I have MacBook Pro and have iPad mini and my wife has iPad. It would be good to have Firefox App on both as it seems to work better for us than Safari. Is there an App out there somewhere? iOS7 update yesterday on the iPad has made the problem worse as it now, does not let us sweep on to an internet address/google question and I now have to go into safari to make a simple search.

Chosen solution

Apple does not allow Mozilla to use their own Browsing engine, which means the true Firefox cant be built on ios due to Apple's tough restrictions.

Please see Will Firefox Work on My Mobile Device for more details.

"Mozilla won't be building Firefox for iOS unless Apple changes its rules, a company executive said Saturday. Jay Sullivan, Mozilla's vice president of product at Mozilla, told an audience at South by Southwest Interactive (SxSW) that the company is not building an iOS browser, and has no plans to."
