BUG: Firefox ios v 18.1 (15719) Hide Images is broken since last update

Posted

Hi,

Since the ios update on the 17th July 2019, the Hide Images option does not work. Firefox ios v 18.1 (15719) Steps to reproduce: 1. Start FF 2. Settings -> enable Hide Images 3. Open any website. 4. All images are loaded and displayed 5. Settings -> Toggle Hide Images : Result Images are hidden. 6. Open new tab with Hide Images enabled -> Images are loaded and displayed.

In other words, I have to load a site with images first before I can hide the images, which defeats the purpose. Before the update I could open sites with Hide Images enabled and the images did not display ( and I hope were not downloaded).

My mobile data plan is back to being raped, and I've stopped surfing, because I only used Firefox because I have a 500Mb mobile data plan per month.

Is this a known problem or an intentional change/Feature?

Regards, S.

Nope. It's been 8 days and no release. I am not hopeful. How many people actually disable Images?

"The issue will be tracked and is already being fixed here: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-ios/issues/5270. Thanks."

And on that link, "rvankeeley added a commit to garvankeeley/firefox-ios that referenced this issue 12 days ago @garvankeeley Fix mozilla-mobile#5270 - no image mode not persisting 9d40dab "

The code change is here: https://github.com/garvankeeley/firefox-ios/commit/9d40dab7ab4063fe330d6142d25e58ea9312b698

But no release was created.

Don't get me wrong. What do you expect? I don't know Mozilla release roadmap, but usually multiple bugfixes will be addressed prior roll-out. So, yes you have to be patient.

I shall be patient. Sorry to come across stressful. I notice on ios that, in general, application releases are far less frequent than on Android, and this I must get used to.
