I have Firefox installed on my iPhone as well as on my MacBook. When I browse using Firefox on my iPhone and I'm in close range of my MacBook, I get a notification on my MacBook for the Firefox page visited on my iPhone, and if I click on the notification, the page is opened in Firefox on my MacBook. This makes sense to me. However, what I don't understand is, this same behavior occurs even when I open a web page in Safari on my iPhone - i.e. I get a notification from Firefox on the iPhone appearing on my MacBook. Why would this happen? These are two distinct apps, I didn't think they could share data.

Can't use Firefox at all until I escape this -- no way I can see to do that. Please help! Thanks!

I am sick and tired of adverts in you tube causing hangs, and crashes on my iPad. Why can I install without problem on my PC, but not on iOS. If it cannot be done, there is no reason to use Firefox on the iPad, because Safari does the same job, and it’s a waste of time having two browsers

I tried to type “teddy bear” into the url bar. After I typed the letter “t”, it autocompleted a url that began “th”. I kept typing. Instead of overwriting the “th” to “te”, it kept the “h”, leading to “the”. The result was “theddy bear”. This reproduces 100% of the time for me. Variants on this bug make it difficult to type in search terms.

I have a short screen recording of it in action but this form won’t let me upload it—photos only.

The Facebook Container information pages suggest you are able to assign sites to containers such that they automatically open into those containers, as do Facebook and Instagram with the Facebook container. However after extensive hunting, I can not find how to assign such automatic containment to other sites, such as google or banking websites, and instead have to manually assign the containers upon tab opening.

Has someone solved this?
