Hi

I am trying to install Firefox on a new iPad. I keep being sent in circles telling me to download it before trying to get extensions. But it shows on the homepage of my unit and appears installed. What am I doing wrong? I have gone to the App Store several times to “open” it.

Thanks

Disabling JavaScript in Firefox Focus

Is there any means to add an option to disable JavaScript in Firefox Focus? This browser has been my go-to / default browser for years on iOS, but lately it has become more difficult to use because websites wait several seconds or wait until I’ve scrolled halfway through a page before blasting a huge window up on the screen asking/demanding/requesting I sign in or agree to their (not so private) privacy policy. Even if I get by that, it seems to refresh the page and I lose where I was.

I’ve found Safari obviates this issue when I leave JavaScript off. I don’t really want to shift entirely to safari, but websites have made using Firefox Focus a bit less useful because of those pop-up windows.

I primarily use Tor Browser or Firefox with uBlock Origin (JavaScript disabled) on my regular computers and happily have few issues using the internet.

Issue with DDG as pre set search engine in FF

Hi!

I have installed DuckDuckGo as search engine in FF for iOS.

Everytime I enter a search phrase and hit search, I get a new page with the word search in the URL/search field.

Then I must delete the word search and enter my search phrase a second time, hit enter/search and then it works fine.

How do I get rid of the word ”search” that appears every time I open the search engine and want to search for something using DDG in FF?

If I open the DDG app on my iphone I don’t experience this issue. I just enter a search phrase and do a search just like on any other search engine I’ve used.

I attached pics, the first is the start page, the second is whereI did a test search for the word ”walnut” and the third is the result I get, search engine page with the word search?

I hope this helps you understand my issue!?

With kind regards

Jim Staf

Every time I try to add a search engine (the one I’m trying now is “wiki.pokemoncentral.it”) Firefox on my 6th generation iPad with iPadOS 15.6 (latest version) crashes, and it does that even with my iPhone Xr. I don’t know what to do, I think it’s a bug or something like that. Please Mozilla, if there isn’t any solution I can do, fix it.

Prevent Bookmarks When Searching/Entering Address

Running the latest version as of writing for iOS, Daylight 103.0 (13910), and unlike the browser for PC/desktop users, there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn off or prevent bookmarks from showing up in the search url bar when first typing out an address or query.

Am I overlooking something in settings? Or is the iOS version lacking this option? If it’s the latter, I think it would be a good idea to add a toggle for this — for privacy concerns and for UI/UX consistency across devices.

I am using Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit) on my Mac. Ever since the most recent update there are two or three websites that when I try to sign into the website I get the following error: Bad Request - Request Too Long HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

Is this a problem with Firefox or with the code of the website I am trying to open? Before the update I did not have this problem.

I am traveling in Europe (Denmark) and at some point the language on my Firefox browser suddenly changed from English to Danish--even on websites that I've marked as favorites. I've looked through my preferences settings and see nothing that relates to this.

Can someone help please? (As much as I'd love to, I don't yet read or speak Danish...)

Thanks.

I have a brand new Macbook Air running 12.5 OS and have reinstalled Firefox which means I should have the latest version (103.0.1) but some YouTube videos do not play (this happened when it was running 103.0 Firefox but did not resolve after updating). It's currently happening with this one, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQqTN4Tz-r4

The same videos play on my older Macbook Air without doing this white circle cycling thing but not playing as is happening on my new laptop, so it's not a wireless issue. I have cleared my cache but it is not helping. Sometimes that helps but often not, as in the case above. Additionally, I have to clear my cache every other day or so, which is very unusual and inconsistent with my older Macbook Air which is running 10.12.6 OS and 103.0 Firefox. Clearly something is different with the new laptop but it's only with Firefox and not with Chrome.
