Passwords not auto filling

Hello!

Please help me return to Firefox. I miss it. :(

I’ve had to switch to Chrome because I can’t seem to get Firefox for iOS to auto fill the passwords I have saved when trying to log on to every website that required a username or password. I’m not talking about the passwords saved to my iCloud Keychain. I’m talking about the ones specifically saved to my Firefox account.

The passwords auto fill on the desktop Firefox just fine (both Windows and MacOS), but for some reason the Firefox for iOS app doesn’t auto fill the passwords.

Both Save Logins and Show in Application Menu are toggled on, so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

If someone can help me fix this, I will gladly return to Firefox! Thanks so much.

Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

I realize that this may seem trivial, but, while I don’t mind the idea of a home button being accessible on the toolbar, surely it could have been placed in a less inconvenient place. Every time I go to refresh the page I end up on my home page instead. On my desktop, I purposely have the page forward, page back and page refresh separated from my home button. And my home button and bookmark button separated from everything else so as to not inadvertently click on those buttons when I meant to click something else or vice versa. So, while having a home button on the toolbar may seem like a nifty, handy idea, not so if it costs moving the page refresh button from it’s more common placement to an obscure part of the header bar where you are more likely to end up on that pinned tab page or in reader view when trying to refresh. Please put the page refresh back where it was.

Is there a way of turning off the "start on homepage"? It claims it will only happen after a hour or so but it's almost every time. Surely there must be an option to turn this very annoying feature off.

I’m using Firefox Daylight 37.0 (5971) and after updating to iOS 15, Firefox crashes periodically when pressing the “open tabs” icon at the bottom of the screen. I always use Firefox in private browsing mode, if that is important. Also, now whenever I switch to Firefox from another app, it opens up a fresh tab automatically, forcing me to close it, when all I was trying to do was switch to the app.

For some time, Firefox on iOS will randomly crash when I try to open a link from email or another site, or even when I go to open a new tab. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, but nothing has changed. I’ve now upgraded to iOS 15, and am also using a brand new iPhone 13, but the same issue still occurs. I love Firefox, otherwise, but this is a huge hassle.

I recently noticed that when I fully close the Firefox app and open it up again, a new blank tab is created, instead of opening up to the tab I was on prior to closing the app.

Not a major issue but slightly annoying, having to close a new blank tab whenever I open the app. Thanks!
