"ios homepage settings" (benisjesus2003 9/13/21, 10:44 AM) and "How to open iOS Firefox on blank home page" (miggy.ad 9/16/21, 5:57 PM), both started discussions regarding the use of "about:blank" and seeing a blank page when Firefox iOS opens. There really was not a solution provided. I've a work around for the time being and would like to know if anyone else has a better solution because "about:blank" has been a favorite homepage, Opening Screen, ...etc. Start with the 3 horizontal bars in the bottom right corner. Select {Settings} and {Homepage} is selected, the first setting is [OPENING SCREEN]. Set this to {Homepage}. Scroll down to [CURRENT HOMEPAGE] and type "https://www.blank.org" into {Custom URL}. To save the entry, touch {Firefox Home} just above the entry. The results while not the same as "about:blank" are very similar. If anyone else has a better solution, please post it here. (Please keep any replies positive to we can share ideals and solutions in the common forum.)

Since a little while whenever I open a new tab and hit something in the search bar, Google will always ask me to accept cookies and login. I have tried a bunch of things - reinstalling - restarting - adjusting security settings

None of which worked.

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

I have just installed the Window Titler add-on for labelling Firefox windows.

As soon as I did and as soon as I completed the step in the customise page to add Titles to windows (tick bottom left box), I have lost the functionality to select any of the overall standard Firefox Menu options across the top: everything from Firefox to Help are visible as per normal, but I can only actually click on 'Firefox' to make it do anything. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window and Help are all there still but are unclickable - nothing happens on any of them.

I can click the hamburger menu on a window toolbar and select menu options there. But the overall one is as above. How can I get it working?
