Firefox fails to start after upgrade to iPadOS 15.1

Fails to start ... flashes onto screen and then gone. Restarted iPad Air (3rd gen). No improvement.

Reinstalling Firefox would seem to be a next step ... but for the warning that deleting the app will also delete app data. I'm unsure what data is local and what data is in the cloud.

Suggestions?

Yo! I uninstalled Firefox V40.0 from iPad Air 3rd gen, iPadOS 15.1, re-installed, and the re-installed Firefox starts without crashing. Good enough for now. Cheers! Bob
