Command + F has suddenly stopped working. Other command functions (e.g., command + L) continue to work as expected, including cut/copy/paste. But command + F simply does not work (going to the menu and selecting the manually selecting the magnifying glass also still works, so it’s not something systemic with the search window, i wouldn’t think).

I posted a message on the App Store indicating the situation, and received a reply from the dev asking me to post my “report” here - not sure if this qualifies, though.

Firefox used to be my go to browser in all my devices. But since the latest updates, it has been buggy and slow to the point of not being an option anymore. I have seen that there are many reviews in the AppStore pointing to this, but seems that they go unnoticed. And the fact that you have to actually go through a series of hops to get support is unbearable. There are many examples of how the application’s performance has been degraded: - when switching to another app (i.e. notepad) and then coming back, it freezes for some 20 seconds before it crashes altogether - when opening a new tab, if you want to access the menu (some call it the “burger” menu on the upper right corner), the app takes almost a full minute before displaying it. - sometimes even opening a new tab, it takes forever to respond to the keyboard entry.

Hopefully in some future versions all these issues get fixed but for now, it has been a total buggy experience.

Firefox for iOS on iPad tab problem

Whenever i use Firefox on my iPad, if I switch to another app and then back to Firefox, Firefox will automatically open up a new tab. I’d like it to stop, and just go to what I set it as in Preferences, or to what I’ve left open when I switched away from it. I’ve looked in Preferences and cannot find out how to stop it from opening new blank tabs by default.

Is there a way to stop it from doing this?

Close option missing in Firefox on iPad Pro

Hello, I am used to close Firefox on Windows computer by > Application Menu > Close. Here, all open tabs are closed as specified by me in the settings. However, there is no such a 'close' option in Firefox for iOS/iPad Pro (build 114.3 (31916)), and I close Firefox by wiping the application on iPad Pro. Each new session opens the previously used tabs.

What is the best way to close Firefox AND close all open tabs?

Thanks for any suggestion. Best,

[Suggestion] RE: privacy windows on ipad vs ios

On FF on my iphone, I can open multiple tabs in the privacy tab, go back to the normal tabs, and all the privacy tabs remain to check later. On my ipad however if I go back to the normal tabs, all of the privacy tabs are gone. I rarely need to close them all immediately, but often do want to go back to them, just keeping them saved for later.

It would be nice if the ipad was like the iphone in not immediately closing all tabs, though still keeping them locked away.

Hey, Since I've updated my ipad to the newest os (15.7) my Firefox got really slow and buggy. Often it simply crashes once it's loading a page. I am not be able to use my enpass password manager anymore too... It simply won't show the keyboard once I want to log into anything. A look in the reviews section of the app store shows me I am not alone.

What's going on? I am using Firefox on so many devices but not on my ipad it's just not usable anymore.

Thanks in advance for help .

this happened only on my m1 iPad. firefox on my iPhone doesn't have this problem. 1.suddenly freezes up. need to relaunch the app. 2.sometimes lags and stutters when scrolling, switch tabs, and open settings. 3.sometimes it outright crashes after a very bad stuttering. this happened even when i only have couple of tabs opening.

i had tried everything i can think of with no success. 1.clear all browsing data. 2.delete and redownload the app(+delete firefox's folder in files app). 3.update iOS(both security patches and to next version).

the only thing i haven't tried is too factory reset the iPad. which i hope to avoid.

Dears,

Since a week of 2 Firefox freezes when I type text in the address bar. After some time the text I typed start appearing. Also websites loading are sometimes freezing. Switching to another app on the iPad makes Firefox unfreeze. However need to use the reload function. Version Firefox 106.2 (21661) iPad Pro (11-inch) iOS 15.7 I removed Firefox, rebooted the iPad and reinstalled Firefox. That shortly seem to help, but now same issues apparent.

Thanks and best regards,

Jelle Klaas

Hello, I use firefox as my main web browser at work, there I use the shotgrid web page to give notes to audio visual projects. I use a wacom cintiq cause I need to give some drawn notes, and every things works so good on the browser, but, I downloaded to firefox version to iPad pro, cause I can sync from my workstation's firefox, but when I try to use the apple pencil to make the drawn notes, it looks like the apple is not drawing, it only let me to draw one point on each touch, it is not drawing as I slide the pencil on the screen. My question is if it is possible? or if I need to set some special setting? Thank you for your attention

I needed this browser for my iPad. I had downloaded it on my PC recently. No problems at all. But now when I try and add the BTRoblox extension it says download the app. I DID THAT. Then it says finish setting it up. I don’t know what that means. So if there is anything I’m doing wrong let me know. Thanks! JackyBEAR
