I ALWAYS use FF in incognito mode. I do not ever switch to non incognito. However, after closing FF (iphone14 pro max, all fully updated) for a couple of hours, when I open, it’s magically back on NONincognito mode.

Also, when in incognito mode, FF still keeps cookies after I have deleted them and cleared caches.

Hi,

I am on v100 on iOS (iPad and iPhone). I noticed that in the Recently Visited list on a homepage I can see history from my private browsing included. It's really worrying as I don't see those items in the browsing history.

Regards,

Ben

Does Firefox Have Something that Working Like an Anonymous Browser with Minimal Ads?

Does Firefox have an app, setting, or a different browser than Firefox in Private Browsing mode that allows me not to be tracked and having no or minimal ads while surfing? Firefox in Private Browsing mode has too many ads taking up a lot of space on my smartphone’s screen. I don’t want to have loads of cookies, and web caches after surfing, and don’t want to have to delete unknown cookies on my phone. I have tried Duck Duck Go, Safari with Adguard, Ghostery, Firefox in Private Browsing mode, etc on my iPhone, but still have tons of cookies and web caches, plus unknown cookies on the phone web history.

Thank you very much in advance!

Old OS 10.11.6 system

I've been using Firefox with my iMac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan I can't update my OS on my otherwise perfectly operational iMac. Firefox was working for me where other browsers wouldn't.

Today I was invited to update my firefox system through a website I was visiting. I took up the option without giving attention to the 'No-Go' icon and stupidly replaced the Firefox version I had, Now I have no working firefox option and I cant locate the older version.

I understand the security risk but my Mac system, my expensive internet service provider and my own usual caution around internet use, and my awareness of spam and phishing messages have so far protected me on the web. I'd be very pleased to be able to use the Firefox version that will work with my OS 10.11.6 but I don't seem to be able to find a suitable download.

Can you assist me please albeit entirely at my own risk

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.
