I'm on Firefox 127.0 (42448) ios and all my private tabs were closed on update and now whenever I make a private tab it disappears after the app is closed or refreshes. It's kind of behaving like the setting where private tabs are closed automatically but when I looked in the privacy settings of firefox ios it's not there anymore. Does anyone else have this issue? I know theres an existing problem with tabs for firefox but I don't think this is exactly the same because my normal tabs are totally fine.

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.

Phone and Firefox up to date. This is NOT immediately after iOS update nor after a Firefox update. I have settings confirmed that should keep me in private browsing. Triple checked this. Even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and reestablished proper settings.

I’ll be browsing in a private browser, will re-open Firefox and SOMETIMES, not always, I’ll be in a non-private browser.

What gives??

Firefox not function properly after recent update iPhone 12 mini

Since the most recent update, Firefox now does not close the private tabs on app closure as it should even though the button to say delete this is actually active.

Also, when listening to music through Soundcloud or Bandcamp or YouTube, even after the tab with the music is closed, the music continues to play. This has all started today and is highly frustrating. As is trying to find this feedback page! 45 minutes into trying to “get help” I finally found somewhere to write this problem out. (Though I doubt Mozilla are interested in fixing the issue, judging by the complete lack of customer support and their labyrinthine Help section which I have to say is NOT in any way helpful, just needlessly stressful).

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.
