Cannot create webpage shortcuts to add to my Home Screen from iOS. Is there another way to do this? I see a Support article for Android, but nothing for iOS. Need this as we access sites instead of downloading apps, but creating shortcuts to those sites on the home screen makes it quick access, like an app would be. Thanks and love the browser!!

In some cases when I try to “share with” a web page into iBooks I get a box saying “creating PDF” but the page does not appear in iBooks.

I cannot find any stored PDF on my 1st Gen iPad Pro running iOS 14.3 (this has been an ongoing problem in Firefox for a long time). It’s unpredictable when this happens. Sometimes when trying to download a scientific paper or article as displayed this will happen, but if the page has a “download PDF” it will display as a PDF and then (sometimes) I can share it with iBooks.

If I open the page in Safari then I can usually load it into iBooks directly.

I’m also at a loss as to how to move a PDF I’ve downloaded into files (either on the iPad or into a cloud server) into iBooks as the icon for iBooks in the “share with” sunscreen is either missing or doesn’t work. Also, depending on what I’m doing, the “share with” icon sequence changes. I moved the iBooks icon to the left as I use it a lot, but sometimes it moves back to the right so I have to scroll to find it, and when it does so it usually gives the above “creating PDF” message and then failed to load the document into iBooks. If the iBooks icon appears 2nd on the list in “share with” it usually works.

On iOS, only Safari can use content-blocking apps installed from the App Store to block content on the web, but third-party browsers are allowed to build in their own ad-blocking solutions. We know this, because Firefox Focus does exactly that, and Edge for iOS even goes as far as to bundle in Adblock Plus. Firefox for iOS needs to use Firefox Focus as a built-in ad-blocker, and Firefox Focus needs to be phased out. There's no reason to have two Firefox browsers for iOS when one of those browsers could literally just be a feature of the other one.

I’ve noted that sometimes I can literally watch my battery percentage drain down from 100% to 49% in minutes. At that point it shuts down my ipad sometimes for hours sometimes for minutes. If it’s minutes it’s come back showing 100% charge as well. I went through and shut down all the possible notifications, mail pull etc. etc. etc. and NOTHING worked. So I started closing applications and watching the battery and in the end when I shut down Firefox it stopped. I’ve found some references to the issue on the web to so I’m not alone. FYI I usually use Firefox for Breitbart.com and Disqus. I’ve moved back over to Safari and no problems so far.

This is my 3rd post in 2 days. I installed Firefox app on my Mac 2 days ago, and again today. I set DuckDuckGo as default browser and removed Goggle, Bings, et., in the settings. This time, I took photos of each step. I restarted my Mac to see what happened, and the app is gone!! It is not available in the App Store for Mac (it is available in the App store on my iPhone). I cannot believe this! And I can't believe no one is talking about it, responding to my questions and nothing is posted online. Apple is removing Firefox!!

Running Firefox 84.0.1 on Mac Catalina 10.15.7. Consistently cannot load BBC.co.uk and Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com with this error message "Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.bbc.co.uk. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

I have tried many times and it's not the site is busy. Loads fine on my iPad. My browser runs no proxy. Browser works fine with other https sites. I have cleared history and cache. Running out of things to try!

I accidentally removed the bookmark star from my address bar, and cannot find how to restore it. 

I've read some replies that absolutely made no sense to me. So, I am posting this in case I get such a confusing reply and can ask more in depth questions to solve this issue. If I get a simple non-confusing help to solve this, I will be very grateful!

The current version of Firefox 30.0 (3279) is giving me problems on my iPhone. I bring up my website (qubewastesolutions.com) and it brings up the home page correctly. But when I try to go to another page it gives me a blank screen, the new page shows correctly in the URL bar but it doesn't load until I manually hit the 'reload' icon.

Is there some setting somewhere that might be prohibiting this? This site has been working fine up until yesterday when I downloaded the most recent version.

This seems to be a technical issue that happens on iPadOS 14.3. I own an iPad 8th generation and installed Firefox. I was on YouTube website since it allows me to put a video in a pop-out mode, but for some reason, when I'm in the browser watching videos, the app suddenly makes my iPad shut down and makes me sign into the tablet again by making me enter the passcode. Why does this happen? I've tried reinstalling the app and even factory reset the device, and none of these methods worked... Is this an app issue? Or does Firefox somehow have compatibility issue with iPadOS 14.3? Does anyone else have encountered an issue like this? Thanks.

I am using Firefox on my iPhone 7 with iOS 14.3. Since some months I am experiencing when loading Firefox, it hangs for a few seconds to load my 'Top Sites' icons. Quite often, for around 10 - 15 seconds Firefox halts after which it crashes and I am back to the iOS Home Screen. This does not occur all the time. Sometimes Firefox works normally-, sometimes not. It is not clear to me how I can reproduce this issue but I suspect it could have something to do with limited resources? Low RAM?

I have tried completely removing and re-installing the app. It also did not solve the issue.

Thanks in advance for your help, Regards,
