Hi there, When I try to use Firefox Focus by tapping the search bar (see screenshot), my phone keyboard does not appear. No matter how many times I tap. I have tried clearing cache, deleting the app's data, restarting my phone, and uninstalling and reinstalling the app. None of these fixed the issue. This makes the app completely unusable. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

EDIT: The keyboard app I am using is Gboard - it came pre-installed on my phone.

Google Pixel 6A, firefox, firefox focus and firefox nightly all have the play/pause button too close to the corner of the screen. The play/pause button is not responding to the user trying to press the play/pause button because it is too close to the corner of the screen. In Google Chrome, the play/pause button is moved approx. 1 inch away from the corner of the screen, towards the center of the screen and it works perfectly. I would love to switch from chrome to firefox, but this issue needs to be fixed before i can. Thank You.

I was trying to send an SOS to Santa Barbara Adult Protective Services and the California State Ombudsman earlier. I'm in need of assistance, I can't see, and I don't think Firefox Focus allowed the message to get through. please help.

Any way you are able I've been trying to get out for over ten years. This is very difficult to describe communicatively in this manner. I don't belong in a facility. I do not have any applicable issues that require me to be here other than to maintain the silence a criminal mind that keeps me here requires. Keeping me blind, and forcing me to lose my "Independent Living" status is the Facility Administrator's goal to take away my rights to administer my own medications, use my own doctors, not allow anyone else to touch me or bathe, dress me. Enter my home, or go through my things without my permission. He has given every caregiver a passkey to every apartment in this facility. They're breaking my closet doors while I'm in my bathroom, etc

I was looking up a Kinder candy product called "Happy Hippo" yesterday afternoon, and briefly surfed around a website for a weird American supplement company with the same name that also came up in the search results. (Just out of curiosity trying to figure out what the supplement they were selling even was.)

That supplement company subsequently showed up in my inbox this morning offering me a discount code. And to state the obvious: I ABSOLUTELY did not give this sketchy supplement company my email address while on their site.

I would be alarmed to find any company tracking me to my inbox after simply browsing their website for less than two minutes, but for it to happen after using Firefox Focus, I'm also dismayed.

I've already unsubscribed from their mailings and sent a strongly worded email about the invasion of internet user privacy, but half the problem must also lie on Firefox Focus' end. I don't know who can look for bugs or loopholes that would have let this happen, but hopefully reporting it here will start that process.

Hello. For quite a while now, probably a year or so, I have not been able to see icons in Facebook when I use Focus on my iPhone.

I'm running iOS 16.6 currently, and Focus 119.0 (17290).

I am attaching screenshots of what the Facebook page looks like. All of the icons are just little squares, which is kind of annoying when trying to navigate. The navigation *works* -- it's just not showing on the page.

Is anyone else having this problem, and do you have any suggestions for fixing it?

Thanks very much!

Hi All,

I have been experiencing problems with search suggestions in the search bar for over a year now, with delays or none showing up.

Since it did not occur only on my Fire Tablet, which was left old due to manual update, I investigated from which version it occurred and found that it occurred from v97.0.0-beta.3 and did not occur until v97.0.0-beta.2.

This version seems to have some changes related to the search bar. https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/focus-android/compare/v97.0.0-beta.2..v97.0.0-beta.3

The conditions known so far are

  • It only occurs in a specific fixed-line WIFI environment.
  • The problem occurs on an IPv6/MAP-E line using IPoE.
  • Changing DNS providers produces the same result.
  • Even in the above environment, the problem does not occur when a proxy server is used.

Please help.
