My tracker count is stuck at a number since January. Is this number calculated from # of Focus visits to the same sites, or specific/ new site visits to add to the count? Should (and how can I) clear this count?

Thanks

Hello,

first off - you're doing a wonderful job, keep on it!

Just a few suggestions which would make FF much better browser: 1. Enhance build-in adblocker that will actually work. Opera's adblocker works way better. 2. Enable opt-in function "I don't care about cookies" based on a current Firefox add-on so a user doesnt have to accept cookies all the time (if they dont care about that).

I'd love to use FF but for the reasons mentioned above, it's not really convenient for me RN. No need to reply. Thanks for your work, anyways!

Sincerely, P.

Hello,

I am having the hardest time trying to add a bookmark in firefox focus for ios. I have done it in the past and somehow that option can no longer be found and the three dots are missing from the top of the window. How could something so essential and common be so difficult to find? Am I just missing something so obvious??? Bottom context menu does not have it, holding down menu on page does not work, three dots are missing. There are no other menus which would provide actions. I am really struggling with how difficult it is.

Thank you.

Disabling JavaScript in Firefox Focus

Is there any means to add an option to disable JavaScript in Firefox Focus? This browser has been my go-to / default browser for years on iOS, but lately it has become more difficult to use because websites wait several seconds or wait until I’ve scrolled halfway through a page before blasting a huge window up on the screen asking/demanding/requesting I sign in or agree to their (not so private) privacy policy. Even if I get by that, it seems to refresh the page and I lose where I was.

I’ve found Safari obviates this issue when I leave JavaScript off. I don’t really want to shift entirely to safari, but websites have made using Firefox Focus a bit less useful because of those pop-up windows.

I primarily use Tor Browser or Firefox with uBlock Origin (JavaScript disabled) on my regular computers and happily have few issues using the internet.

In choosing a search engine, I found out from the directions on Firefox focus how to add them. But when they gave the string for Wikipedia, it did not work. I was wondering if any knew the accurate one and also is there a webpage that gives search strings for many apps or web pages? When I did a search under “Wikipedia Search Engine String”, I didn’t see a web page that offered it and I couldn’t find it on the Wikipedia site. If someone doesn’t mind, can you give me the directions on how to find them? I would be very grateful.
