Hi community,

Hopefully, someone can help me with this strange issue:

I've installed Firefox for iOS (iPhone) and would like to add DuckDuckGo as my default search engine but there seems to be an issue with the query string as shown on this support page.

When entering DDG to the list in Settings using the suggested query string "https://www.duckduckgo.com/search?q=%s", every search in the URL text field (in this case "vin") sends me to the DDG start page where my string is changed to "search" in the search field (see image) and below with a bunch of search engines. Then I have to enter my initial search string one more time.

Hopefully, this explanation makes sense.

What can I do? Any help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Peter

Is this a feature? If not, can it be? I frequently use reading mode, especially on horrifically laid out sites such as news and magazine sites. I frequently have to scroll up and down a bunch of times to get the address bar to come back so I can use it. How do I disable this hiding behavior? If I can’t, why? With modern phones being so absurdly tall it’s not like the bar takes up crucial real estate, people should be able to keep it visible if they want.

Thanks T

Dear members,

Lately I notice that iOS Firefox blocks about 80% of websites that I’ve been visiting numerous times before effortlessly. I believe it’s something to do with (updated) safety setting related to tracking of some sort. I did click on the lock sign in the URL web browser and tried several settings, but despite this the websites do not load and it gets stuck at a full white screen. On Safari they do load by the way.

Does any of you have a solution or a workaround available?

Kind regards, Piet

Hello! I’m trying out the whole AI search engine thingy with You.com but i wanna use firefox rather than the IOS app that they provide. I’ve already set You as the default search engine and that all works when I’m searching from within Firefox. But when using the IOS Spotlight search thingy, e.g the search thing that IOS app then pressing the firefox icon with my search, it simply searches with google instead of You.com.

Is there a fix for this?

Firefox 36.0 (5732) can’t save picture anymore on mobile version of google search image + Firefox is detected as Safari browser

Greetings,

Since a few days ago, I am noticing an anomaly while using Mozilla Firefox app on iPad Air 1 iOS version 12.5.7. Mozilla cannot save pictures anymore via google image search results for the mobile version of the website while it allows to save pictures while on the desktop version of the website. Usually, when clicking an image on the google image result tile it shows the image in full resolution and then by clicking and holding a picture, it use to offer to save the picture (please see picture #1):

Now instead, Mozilla only highlights everything around the image shown in full resolution (on mobile version of the website) and it offers different options for the selected item(s) and it no more offers to save the image as usual (please see picture #2):

Using other websites on their mobile version with the iPad Air and Mozilla app mobile allows to save images. Thus the issue seems to be with the google website on mobile version.

Filling a google “bug” form about the issue listed that the device used was a MacOS 10.15.4, but I’m using an iPad Air 12.5.7. I then double checked with the website deviceinfo.me which also lists that while using Mozilla on the iPad Air, the web browser detected is Safari 13.1 and the OS used is MacOS 10.15.4 (which is not the case). Thus, it seems by two different sources that Mozilla on the iPad is not detected as the correct browser and so does for the OS used. (Please see pictures #3 and 4):

I cross checked these findings with another device on the same network using an iPhone 8 plus, iOS16.7.2 with Mozilla Firefox v120.1 (36298) and the Mozilla app allows to save pictures on the mobile version of google search image and the website deviceinfo.me lists the correct info regarding the iPhone model and the web brower used.

1. What is causint the Mozilla Firefox app on the iPad to prevent from saving pictures on the mobile version of google image search results?

2. Why Mozilla is detected as Safari on the iPad and appears to be running on the wrong OS?

3. Can anything be done to allow Firefox to save pictures on the mobile version of google search image on the iPad? Such as work around or update for the app itself? (Reinstalling the app on the iPad did not fix the issue).

4. Is the issue preventing to save picture with the Mozilla app itself (app which has not been updated since it started not offering to save images a few days ago) or is the issue on the google server side which maybe have been updated?

Thanks in avance,


B

How is it possible that such a glaring design error still exists after so many have asked for so long?

And to those commenting completely incorrect and unhelpful steps that lead to menus that don’t exist in the settings, WHY?

I’m bout to go back to safari. I love everything Firefox stands for but this is such a glaring oversight I can’t help but wonder what else is being missed.

Hi, thanks in advance for the help.

My case is simple but I have no ideia the WHY is happening. I use google as a search engine but after a few days, it changes automatically to Yahoo (wich i dont like) and i have to go to preferences and change it back to google. This has been repeating for a few months and I'm a bit fed up of it, so, is there any way to keep google permamently?

Also it is curious that if I restore the default seach engines, it does not appear yahoo, and even if i delete all, and only keep google, keeps on happening again.

I'm an apple user and I also have Firefox since forever on the Iphone and Ipad too and no problem with this ones.

Again, thanks

Since yesterday’s update, whenever I try to touch the address bar to enter in something (anything at all), it flashes for a bit and doesn’t do anything. It’ll show the search engine and go back to its usual state. I’ve never had this issue before.

I’ve tried redownloading the app on my iPad (Silicon iPad from 2022. Firefox and my iPad are at the latest version.), but nothing’s worked.

I’m out of options. Can anyone help?

Hello,

I was told to come to this site to report issues with Firefox iOS. I searched this site to see if someone is having a similar issue but didn't find anything.

The issue is simple: I use Firefox on iOS to search Google. I don't want to use the separate Google search app. I like having everything inside Firefox itself. When I initially search for something, the Google search result page loads fine. However, after I use other apps on my phone for while, if I come back to Firefox, then those pages are blank and don't load. I can still see what I searched for in the title of the tab, but the content of the tab is blank and doesn't load even if I press the refresh button. Somehow, this issue MOSTLY happens with the Google search result page, not really with any other website (also I think I've seen this happen with other websites once or twice), which is pretty odd.

I'll try and reproduce it and attach screenshots later.

I’m having difficulty with Firefox on an iPad mini fifth generation running iOS 16.4.1 and today’s version of Firefox. I’ve used Firefox for years with Duck Duck Go as search engine with no problem. Today without warning Firefox stopped accepting URLs typed into the search bar from the Homepage (or any page). It simply ignores the typing and flickers momentarily, keeping the existing URL and page. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, changing the default search engine from Duck Duck Go to Firefox, and changing from a custom homepage to the Firefox homepage. No luck. Please advise.

Hi,

At Firefox iOS mobile app when I open and do a search, with google configure as main search, I’m always asked to login or accept the google policy.

Why the browser don’t save the information for next search’s? I don't have any option to enable or disable the cookies, I already have disable the tracking protection (at firefox settings) and still happen.

I have search for this topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-ios

But didn't find any solution.

Please let me know how to solve this issue, because with other browsers I don't have it, and I would like to still use Firefox.

thanks.
