The back button returns me to the top of the page instead of where I left off when using my iPhone. It’s annoying to have to keep scrolling down and waiting for more of the page to load to find where I left off. Any idea how to fix this? Chrome also does this. Shopping on sites like Nordstrom Rack becomes so frustrating.

hi all. i'm trying to turn on push notifications for firefox in hopes that it will solve the issue of me not being able to send tabs to my phone (says 'sent' on my computer but tab never arrives). one main fix i've seen for this is to make sure push notifications are enabled. however there is seemingly no where on my phone to enable this!!!

firefox instructions say "go to notification center in settings app and scroll down to firefox. however there is no firefox in my notification center. (screen shot of the apps notification center in alphabetical order showing no 'firefox') i've also tried looking in the in app settings, and the firefox settings in the settings app; no notification options in eithr of those places.

no idea how this could be! or how to remedy. any thoughts? thanks!

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.

I love Firefox and have used it for years!

I am working on a Macbook Air, with the latest Big Sur iOS.

Today Firefox was working fine.

Then (in an attempt to use a new software that requires an old version of Firefox) I uninstalled my current Firefox and installed an old version of Firefox. (Side note: the old version of Firefox would not work with the new software's imacros because of Big Sur. So I have installed Parallels so I can run the new software on Windows.)

Soooooooo, I uninstalled the old version of Firefox, and then downloaded the lastest version of Firefox. I installed it as instructed.

Two things are happening:

1. Firefox icons in Applications and in the dock both show as a shortcut. I cannot seem to install a non--shortcut version of Firefox! 2. EVERY time I now open Firefox, it requires me to re-login to Firefox AND reinstall the extensions. Very annoying!

So I know I'm missing something. Not real technie, so any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

After update to iOS 15 this week, my previously rock-solid FF app (on auto-updates) is now crashing repeatedly on switching to the app or opening the app. I keep 6-8 tabs open for quick access which are not full of video, music, or animations. IPhone 12 mini has plenty of storage.

Quick reference between other tasks is not quick when switching to or opening FF brings up the “this is embarrassing” message and then I have to wait for tabs to reload.

Have not updated iPad yet.

I am a web developer for a state agency and was having a bit of an issue with getting Firefox for iOS to work with our current get location code. Most of the other browsers work with the following, including Firefox desktop and Firefox Mobile.

Is there something different about iOS that I am missing. On the JS fiddle the console.log runs, but it just stops after that.

Any help would be appreciated? or being able to access the console.log in the iOS browser as well?

Thank you, Peter Ottenbacher [email]

function Geolocate() {

       console.log("getting location");
       //check if the geolocation object is supported, if so get position
       if (navigator.geolocation) {
           navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(displayLocation, displayError);                
    
       } else {
           alert("Sorry - your browser doesn't support geolocation!");
       }
   }

When I close Firefox and go back in to it, I am presented with a new Home Tab now. This is very bad experience for me. What a productivity killer. I want to go back to my last active tab.

Need a “Startup Tab” option for “Where I left off” or “Specific URL” or “New Home Tab”.

This is horrible. Trying to remember not to close Firefox now, but I am careful… quite addicted… to always closing Apps since Apple lies about battery consumption, and I don’t want “background” apps spying on me in anyway.

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 talked with Constant Contact and they said that they only support Firefox versions 41 or higher. The current Firefox desktop version is 74. The latest update for the iPad is version 23.0. Does the 23.0 on the iPad at all correlate to the 74 on the desktop? If not, then when I am running the "desktop" version on my iPad am I that far behind the latest true desktop version?

I have Firefox installed on my iPhone as well as on my MacBook. When I browse using Firefox on my iPhone and I'm in close range of my MacBook, I get a notification on my MacBook for the Firefox page visited on my iPhone, and if I click on the notification, the page is opened in Firefox on my MacBook. This makes sense to me. However, what I don't understand is, this same behavior occurs even when I open a web page in Safari on my iPhone - i.e. I get a notification from Firefox on the iPhone appearing on my MacBook. Why would this happen? These are two distinct apps, I didn't think they could share data.
