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.

iOS 14.5.1, iPhone 8, Firefox update 11/7/21. I have 70 tabs open in Firefox. After the latest update, when I open it, nothing on the page works. When I long-press the Firefox icon, select new tab or new private tab, I can enter a URL which is then opened, but then nothing works. It's frozen. Long-press and open last bookmark loads the page, but again, frozen. Actually, it did work once after the update, until I went into settings and told it to open last tab instead of a new one...

Hi, I just downloaded an update for Firefox for iOS (my iPhone 7 is running iOS 14.8), and the browser simply does not work anymore. No matter where I tap on the screen it refuses to respond, unless I hold the app icon on the home screen and do stuff like "open new tab" or "open latest bookmark" from there, in which case it technically does those things but still refuses to actually load the site, and still doesn't respond to my input. The address bar doesn't respond, the home button doesn't respond, the back and forward arrows don't either, and neither do the other two icons (tabs and menu). My wireless connectivity still functions (I'm able to use Safari and other apps), and my phone screen responds to input with other apps. Furthermore, I've offloaded and reinstalled the app TWICE now. How do I get Firefox to actually do anything without totally uninstalling it and reinstalling it, and thereby losing all my bookmarks?

I updated my iPhone app to version 40 a few days ago. Ever since, I cannot use Firefox. I try to open it, and it freezes and shows a black screen (despite having several tabs open). I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling. I had to reopen the each of my old tabs individually. It worked for a few hours but has stopped working again. I have a lot of tabs open and I do not want to keep reinstalling it and reopening all of them to be able to use the app.

When i open the app, it immediately becomes unresponsive and refuses to load. When i switch out and back in, it acts like im opening it for the first time, which leads me to believe its crashing.

This only happened recently, so it must've been an update (either ios or the app, i cant be sure on the timeline) that broke things.

I do have a bajillion tabs open, but thats never been a problem before - i use firefox solely for browsing AO3

And i cant even close any because its completely unresponsive…

Hey Everyone,

I updated Firefox for iOS to version 40 yesterday and the app is now inaccessible. I am on iOS 14.8.1.

Menu icons and address bar are visible but not accessible. None of the menus or functionality are working. It shows just a solid black screen.

I’d delete and re-install but will lose a bunch of bookmarks. Is there a way to rescue those before deleting and re-installing app? Thanks!

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?

Normally when you long press something and open it in a new tab it opens to the right of whatever tab you’re opening it from. For some reason mine have started opening at the very bottom of all my tabs, which is VERY annoying as I have many tabs open. So if I open a new one, I expect it to be right next to the one I opened it from. As it always has been. Until now. For god knows what reason. Please help me, this is so damn annoying.
