I realize that this may seem trivial, but, while I don’t mind the idea of a home button being accessible on the toolbar, surely it could have been placed in a less inconvenient place. Every time I go to refresh the page I end up on my home page instead. On my desktop, I purposely have the page forward, page back and page refresh separated from my home button. And my home button and bookmark button separated from everything else so as to not inadvertently click on those buttons when I meant to click something else or vice versa. So, while having a home button on the toolbar may seem like a nifty, handy idea, not so if it costs moving the page refresh button from it’s more common placement to an obscure part of the header bar where you are more likely to end up on that pinned tab page or in reader view when trying to refresh. Please put the page refresh back where it was.

After update to iOS 15 this week, my previously rock-solid FF app (on auto-updates) is now crashing repeatedly on switching to the app or opening the app. I keep 6-8 tabs open for quick access which are not full of video, music, or animations. IPhone 12 mini has plenty of storage.

Quick reference between other tasks is not quick when switching to or opening FF brings up the “this is embarrassing” message and then I have to wait for tabs to reload.

Have not updated iPad yet.

For some time, Firefox on iOS will randomly crash when I try to open a link from email or another site, or even when I go to open a new tab. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, but nothing has changed. I’ve now upgraded to iOS 15, and am also using a brand new iPhone 13, but the same issue still occurs. I love Firefox, otherwise, but this is a huge hassle.

I tapped on a link on a website that directs to an email address while using the Firefox App. Afterwards, Firefox then open and directs me to the Mail app. I was wondering if that happens, does Firefox shares my email address with the website I clicked the link in?

I found the old way Firefox opened on the last page I was looking at very useful and I hate the way it opens in the new version. I usually keep several tabs open and dwelling on old topics I have researched. It now completely ignores that and forces me to open on a useless tab requiring me to search through several tabs before finding the one I was on. How can I defeat this useless new function and get my old browser functionality back?

I recently noticed that when I fully close the Firefox app and open it up again, a new blank tab is created, instead of opening up to the tab I was on prior to closing the app.

Not a major issue but slightly annoying, having to close a new blank tab whenever I open the app. Thanks!

When I close Firefox and go back in to it, I am presented with a new Home Tab now. This is very bad experience for me. What a productivity killer. I want to go back to my last active tab.

Need a “Startup Tab” option for “Where I left off” or “Specific URL” or “New Home Tab”.

This is horrible. Trying to remember not to close Firefox now, but I am careful… quite addicted… to always closing Apps since Apple lies about battery consumption, and I don’t want “background” apps spying on me in anyway.

I really don’t find the new start on home page feature useful at all. Quite the opposite, actually. Is there a way to disable this, have I missed something?

Firefox gets ejected out of memory more often than Safari, so I’d like to be able to resume what I was doing as seamlessly as possible and have FF just reload the last open tab on launch. The current behavior opens a new tab that I didn’t ask for, and when I close it, it takes me all the way back to the first tab, which is still not something I want. This strikes me as a stunningly poor design. Is it just me? Am I doing it wrong?

Hi I'm using Mozilla Firefox browser version 37 on iPhone7 iOS 13.4.1 . I dont have any page as my homepage. However, when I start the browser, it automatically loads the blank page. As changelog of Firefox iOS Ver.37 said

"Start on Home Page

Firefox will start on your Home page every time you reopen the browser after a couple of hours to avoid distracting you with the tabs of your last session. "

I want the browser stay at my last session tabs but have no ideal how to do it.

Please, kindly assist me to stop firefox from loading anything automatically, immediately after startup. Thanks.

Every time I open the Firefox app the browser opens a new window instead of opening on the window I left off on like it used to. Now I’m wasting time looking for the window I was on. Is there a way to stop this from happening so when I open the app again I can pick up where I left off? If this is a new feature it sucks and we should have the option to turn it off. Please let me know if there is a way to turn this off and how to do it. Thanks for your time and help.

There seems to have been an update and now any time I start Firefox, it opens on a home page with ‘most used links’. I don’t want to see any links; seeing lots is prompts me to waste more time on the internet. I want to see a blank page like when I open a new tab. How do I do that? It seems impossible now.
