On my iPad Pro 2020 I've set-up Firefox to change from light- to dark-mode when the OS changes the mode automatically. Firefox has it's issue with this. After the OS changes from light- to dark-mode, the Tabs will show up completely white and vice versa. What helps is to shut down the Browser and restart.

As the OS changes modes two-times a day, I have to shut-down and restart Firefox also two-times a day. This happens with the latest version "Firefox Daylight 34.0 (4920)" and also with previous versions. iPadOS version 14.6.

This needs a fix. Thank you!

Screenshots after changing from night- to light-mode:

Hi all!

I was just tearing my hair a couple of hours, when I realized that Firefox on iOS cannot save a PDF file that is currently displayed. :( I am not alone it seems, as there are a few threads about this. I tried the "Share" then Copy and Paste to Files trick mentioned in the first thread below, but it didn't work.

I had to set Safari as my default browser (!) on my iPhone to be able to save my PDF... and we don't want that, now do we? :)

Can we get this to the attention of the developers? It would be awesome! Thanks for a great product!

Opened few links in new tubs. The next link attempt to open in the new tub, quits Firefox. Similarly, after number of opened tubs, an attempt to open new tub fails by quitting Firefox. Re-open Firefox points to the last tub opened.

The behavior noticed on an older iPad mini, iOS 12.5.3. Since both Firefox and iOS were updated at similar time frame, do not know which one is causing problem. The Safari browser does not have this problem.

Checked Firefox on Windows; it does not have this issue.

I just hooked up my new computer. When I look for my passwords and favorites everything is fine. When I look for all my documents and pictures and downloads that I just looked at on my old computer I cannot find them. The only thing in any file is the download for Firefox that I used to get Firefox on my new machine. I've tried to look for help in the help files but cannot find out why I cannot access all of my documents, pictures and downloads. How do I get them back? Thank you for any and all help, Rob A.

Past few days, am experiencing what research indicates is Bing redirect when using Firefox. Screen randomly redirects to what appears an unasked for, unknown search screen. Despite being unchecked, different search engine chosen in preferences, Firefox search bar shows "bing" as search platform. Have tried unsuccessfully methods found on net (unable to ID suspicious items via Finder-> Activity Monitor or find all files related to Bing). Also dumped, reinstalled Firefox, but Bing problem persisted (possibly because of asking that prior bookmarks, etc, be re-added?). Need help to proceed before canceling Firefox totally, losing years of stored info. Help, please!

When I type “x” into the browser it always reads the letter “x” and replaces it with this non-word “terragonx” and completely drops my ability to enter any further text. Google is my default search engine but this “predictive” incorrect response to the letter “x” occurs in DuckDuckGo, also. I’ve cleared my cache, deleted cookies, deleted history, etc. in Google, DDG, and Mozilla, I still cannot use the letter “x” without receiving the above “terragonx.” I cannot find help anywhere for this issue. It occurs in iOS and across my “synced” devices. The problem began on an Lenovo Yoga tablet device, then on two iOS devices, and an Acer laptop because I use sync.

After recent updates I’m having repeated problems with uncontrolled opening of new tabs as fast as the system can do in a loop of some kind. This generally is happening when a link in email is unintentionally activated. The only solution is to try to shut down the app, bring it back up, and delete the 20 or 30 tabs that have been created. I don’t know what URL’s have been doing this since they don’t show up in the tab or history, but it has happened repeatedly and could not be isolated to a single url.

The Menu button has been replaced by a QR code scanner button on the Firefox Home Screen on my iPad.

I don’t need the QR code scanner. I need QUICK access to the FireFox menu (and my bookmarks).

The new version requires navigation away from the Home Screen prior to displaying the menu button. Also, the Tab Label is missing for the active tab. (See attached images.)

I think this is a bug.

Please provide instructions to configure the app to display the menu button on the Home Screen.

The new Firefox for iOS home page always defaults to having the address bar active which has the keyboard up. This hides the button to show the bookmarks. This should not be the default since most of the time people will either use one of their bookmarks or one of the shortcuts on the homepage. Please fix this. If I want to type a URL, I can tap the address field first.
