I use an iPad Pro 10.5” running iPadOS15.7 and Firefox 104.2. When I switch back to Firefox from another app, I get taken to a new tab. I see my original session for less than a second, then I get taken to the new tab. This has been happening for a number of weeks now, months probably. I was hoping it was an iPad issue that would be fixed with the most recent update, but I still have the problem.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox on iOS and Firefox on Mac and reinstalling them in a different order. But regardless of what I do, the logins that are on my Mac do not sync to my phone. I have about 850 logins on my Mac, and even after I do a manual sync, it still says "No logins found" on my phone. Items like bookmarks and open tabs sync fine.

PDFs corruption when saved to Files/Filesize shown too small

Hello, I lately got a new issue with saving PDFs in FF for iOS. When I download a PDF file it will be opened in FF and displayed. To save it locally on the device I always use Menu > Share > Save to Files. Previously that worked well and I always got my files that way, but lately their file size is shown with very tiny values and hence they won’t be stored correctly, e.g. a PDF of ~100 kB is shown as less than 100 Bytes, of course, it will not open in any app later, since the file is incomplete. In Safari it works as it did previously.

Device: iPhone 12 Pro Max 256 GB. FF for iOS version: (current one) 105, but it also wasn’t working in 104.2, which is the previous release…

As you can see on the screenshot, showing the sharing menu, the filesize from the document is shown very tiny. In Safari the same File is shown as ~110 kB and saves correctly. The grey option is the Save to Files one, to select a local path for storage. Previously it would’ve worked without issues. Contacts blanked out for privacy.

What can I try to make it work again?

During this September I started to have problems with Firefox on iOS (iPhone 8).

Firefox started to freeze when switching to other apps and then trying to go back to Firefox. The only solution is to kill Firefox myself or wait for iOS to restart it.

Most times, when opening Firefox it reloads tabs the same way it does after a crash. During this reload it seems it forget about cookies and configuration. Eg. it shows me as not logged in my Google account until I reload the site and then I’m back logged in.

I started to have these problems while using iOS 15.6. I have updated to iOS 16 but the problems persist. My phone and apps are both up to date.

Any suggestion to troubleshoot this is more than welcome.

My Yahoo! email account is not working properly with the Firefox browser. I cannot close or delete email messages. The display is not screen wide.... it is compacted on the left side of the screen. I cannot get to settings. The email history stops at September 13. Older emails are no longer visible.

All is normal using the Safari browser. I would prefer to use Firefox but it is useless right now.

On iOS 15.7 with private browsing enabled, new tabs are launching in normal browsing when clicking on links from applications, like Apple Mail, Notes, or Outlook for iOS.

Is this an issue with the recent Firefox build or is the functionality deprecated?
