I had about 500 tabs on FF on my iphone open. The browser crashed and now all of those seem to be gone. "Recently Closed" is empty. Starting the browser just opens an empty page. I had sync turned one but oh magic the synced tabs pretty much immediately diappeared from the other devices as well. Any ideas how I might be able to recover those tabs? Could they still be saved somewhere on the iphone or in the cloud?

Long press > New Tab doesn't restore tabs after Firefox crashes

Hello,

I've told to report technical issues on this website.

I've noticed an issue with Firefox iOS where, if Firefox silently crashes and I open a new tab by doing a long press on the iOS home screen, then selecting New Tab, Firefox only opens that new tab and does not restore the previous session and all previously loaded tabs are gone.

That has happened to me multiple times now and I've had to then try and figure out which tabs I had open by going through the browser history, which is pretty annoying.

To prevent that, I'm pretty much not using the long press > new tab functionality at all anymore and instead I open the app first, then open a new tab. Sometimes, I'll open the app, and if the app crashes, THEN I'm asked if I want to restore the session. Then I have to make sure to not accidentally press NO cause it seems there's no way to get that session back afterwards.

I would suggest a few ideas to prevent this issue: - please offer a setting to auto-restore previous sessions after a crash, instead of asking - alternatively, if pressing NO, or opening a new tab from the homescreen with a long press, offer a way to restore a previous session somewhere on the new tab page

When attempting to enter full screen mode on Firefox for Android, and to get into landscape mode, the browser appears to crash, keeps audio playing, and "entering full screen mode" dialogue pops up. Have to open Firefox again, and can only be viewed in landscape mode while session is continued. To return to non-landscape mode, the app needs to be force stopped, otherwise you only get to see the left one third side of any web page you navigate to. Seems to have started with most recent update. Is there any way to fix?

Just updated to latest version of Firefox for Android (ver 113). When I try to watch a YouTube video in full screen, the app suddenly closes, as if I pressed the home button (note: I say "close" rather than "crash" because when I reopen it, all the pages are still loaded). This doesn't happen every time, but it is annoying. Is there any way to fix this?

Hello everyone

I'm at a loss. FF for iOS (iPhone 7) keeps crashing every few days (no other apps have similar problems). It then asks to restore tabs from the last session, which mostly works, but every few weeks, all tabs are lost (about 20..50 total). In history menu, open tabs from last session is greyed out. When the tabs are are lost, they're also instantly purged from FF sync. >:(

I'd love to use FF on iPhone, since I'm using FF sync extensively and successfully on multiple PCs. But on iPhone, FF only causes me pain and suffering (i.e. the need to comb through months of history in the hopes of catching all lost tabs). Is there anything I can do that FF on this platform gets more reliable?

It seems, the more connected we get, the more data we lose. :(

Best regards

Firefox crashes Pixel 6a

Once a while Firefox would freeze up and when that happens it would without fail reboots the phone if the phone goes to sleep and if I don't force close the app quickly. It might've done so anyway without putting it to sleep but I haven't tested leaving the screen on long enough. I noticed that if I was quick enough and force stop the app the phone doesn't reboot, but that window is really short. Maybe 2 seconds or so. Suffice to say force stopping didn't always work since the window is so short. When Firefox freezes other apps and phone functions work normally. It's been ongoing for a while through multiple updates. I see some people have already reported this same issue here. Can Mozilla fix this please? I have uBlock origin addon installed thanks. Also this never happened with my Pixel 3 phone which I was using up until a few months back so maybe it's pixel 6a specific. Alot of people have this same issue with pxiel6a from googling. It can freeze on any site I visit but one example is reddit.

  1. Whenever you login a site, Firefox does not remember the cookies from the login. So when you close the app and open it later, so you need to login again.
  1. Firefox crashes a lot since iOS 16 and now too on 16.1, and now also since the release iPadOS 16.1. This makes the app difficult to use and really bad.

Both are very frustrating and important issue, please fix it!
