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
