Firefox crashes upon launch and then iPhone resprings the springboard

Posted

I had to reinstall firefox because every time I launched the app, it would crash and then my iPhone would respring the springboard.

I couldn't get into it to turn on crash reports, but I have turned them on now after reinstalling.

Unfortunately this is a known bug for Firefox for iOS 1.2. This will be addressed in an upcoming bugfix release.

The only way to get around this bug right now is to delete and reinstall the application.

That's a waste of time for me. Until it gets sorted out, I'll be using chrome and safari.

I have found that it only occurs when I'm logged into the sync service. Crashes and resprings about 8 seconds after launch every time. I have even deleted my account and created a new one with the same results. Issue persists on iOS 9.2.1 and Firefox for iOS 2.
