Hi everyone,

I'm trying out Firefox for iOS v26 and when I open a new tab, I want to see my Bookmarks rather than Top Sites. The help section in the support pages here states that a New Tab can be configured to show a variety of different setups. However, in v26, Firefox Home, Blank Page and Custom URL are the only options displayed.

Is this expected behaviour?

I know I can browse through my Bookmarks to open the page I want, but it would be more convenient to have them displayed, just like I have setup in Safari.

Any ideas?

Safari and FireFox on iPhone sharing data

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.

Firefox displays pdf files very nicely, but how do I save the file to my download folder?

FF help says this is done by “clicking the download link” but I cant find any download links anywhere in the FF GUI, when the pdf is displayed.

I'm sure its there somewhere, but I just cant find it..

Help appreciated,

Cheers, Lars Bo

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

Have Firefox/Mozilla as browser. Was using Yahoo but it wasn't the default page. On the top of the Firefox page, I was able to have several tiles to click on for frequently used sites. Below them I had Pocket and a daily list of pocket essays. Is it possible to have these wonderful tools again on a new site? If so, how do I set them up?

Thank you, cmacc
