Hi community,

Hopefully, someone can help me with this strange issue:

I've installed Firefox for iOS (iPhone) and would like to add DuckDuckGo as my default search engine but there seems to be an issue with the query string as shown on this support page.

When entering DDG to the list in Settings using the suggested query string "https://www.duckduckgo.com/search?q=%s", every search in the URL text field (in this case "vin") sends me to the DDG start page where my string is changed to "search" in the search field (see image) and below with a bunch of search engines. Then I have to enter my initial search string one more time.

Hopefully, this explanation makes sense.

What can I do? Any help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Peter

Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

I am experiencing constant crashes while using Firefox app for iOS. The error message is the standard “Well this is embarrassing” message with no additional context. It appears to be occurring when sync is enabled - when I have it disabled I don’t experience any crashes, or at least so infrequently that I don’t notice it. While syncing is enabled however it crashes no matter what I am doing at the time, and as frequently as every couple minutes. The version in settings is Firefox daylight 102.1. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple times but the issues persists.

Hi, my Firefox on my iPhone was updated on the latest version (116.0), and upon opening it after the update, I realized all of my open tabs were completely gone! This includes the private browsing tabs, which typically persisted from opening to opening of Firefox. Every tab, both normal and private browsing, is now gone. How can I restore them? I've *never* had any issues with any prior Firefox iOS update before!

This is critical to me; thank you for your help in any way, whether that be it through my synced account (which also lost the open tabs, from what I can see) and/or anything else.

So I installed the Window Titler add on. First the Firefox main general toolbar menu didn't work, which was fixed by closing down every window and Firefox and re-launching.

Now though when I use Yahoo in Firefox, I can't reply, forward or select ANY of the buttons to action an email. Other buttons work. But if I launch Yahoo in Safari they work.

Problem happened exactly as I installed the add-on. Any ideas what's going on?

Hi I used to often use the Firefox Translations (by Mozilla Firefox) add-on to translate web pages in the browser. It was the one in the screen shot below. It was brilliant and a couple of days ago it disappeared off my screen. When I opened a French webpage there was no button at the top to translate and all I get now is the option to copy and paste 1000 characters into a box! I cannot find the original one - unless this has replaced it? In which case, not happy! The other was much better. Can anyone help me get the original again or recommend something similar? Thanks

Can not save images from Google Images, by holding down on the image, and then tapping save image. The menu simply does not pop-up. Holding down on the image results in selection of the image description below. Sometimes you can not save it form the website either, but that is because of website configuration and you can not save it on other browsers, but on other browsers you can save from Google Images by holding down on an image, so it is only the issue of Firefox and not the Google Images website. This issue seems to be present for over 2 years based on online feedback, and it is still not fixed.
