Firefox for iOS missing Device section via app's Settings (cogwheel icon)

Posted

Received email from Firefox Friends... Announcing newly released Firefox for iOS in Australia. Email provided link to AppStore to download this App.

Download and install of App was successful.... It was version 1.0 (43) onto an iPad 2.

However, as per the email, the app was supposed to have a Device Section in Settings, accessible via cogwheel icon after click on the Tab. The Device Section was missing?

The App also missing the Use Compact Tabs switch.

Hi FirefoxSmiles (great username :-) )

"The App also missing the Use Compact Tabs switch. "

The Use Compact Tabs switch is only present on iphone and ipod touch. This switch is not present on iPad which is why you don't see it on your iPad.

"However, as per the email, the app was supposed to have a Device Section in Settings, accessible via cogwheel icon after click on the Tab. The Device Section was missing? "

I don't think the Device Section is present. Maybe it's a bug that it is missing.

1. FirefoxSmiles could you please paste the section from the email about the Device Section so I could figure out exactly what you are referring to?

Cheers!
