Hi, I did not realize that default option for browsing in Firefox for Android these days is Private mode. I downloaded it on Android 14 and am unable to see my browsing history which had some hours of search work across a topic

Is there a way to access the browsing history without rooting the device?

Is there any way to save data for certain sites and delete the rest?

Question: is there a way to clear all website data except for certain ones? Like a white list.

I have an iPhone 13 Pro with ios 17.1.1. I have Moziilla Firefox for iOS 126.1.

I would like to clear all private data except for Cache and Cookies on certain websites that I frequently visit, so that I don’t have to log in each time and my data from that site won’t be lost.

Currently I have to go into Settings-Data Management-Website Data-and select each site separately to delete unwanted data. It will only allow me to delete 10 sites at a time. When I click on “show more” it reveals the whole list. However, when I click on one, the list disappears.

Is there any way to save data for certain sites and delete the rest?

Clearing history sometimes rearranges my open tabs on the iPad

On my iPad when I tap on Menu Icon > History > Trash Icon > Everything, the tabs refresh/flash and then the order of the tabs change. For example,

Old tabs: 1 2 3 4 (active tab is 2) New tabs after clearing the history: 1 3 4 2 (active tab is now 3)

Is there a way to prevent this? I’d like to keep the original order of my tabs.

Regards.

I had many tabs open in firefox on my iphone, which were unique and not open in firefox on my laptop. Inhad kept them there for a while because theyvwere important. I happened to tap on 'pick up tab' from my laptop in order to work on something from my phone for the forst time. This looks like a new feature that I didnt notice before. It opened that tab but immediately closed all of those tabs I had kept opened. It also deleted and overwrote all of my iphone history, so that everything exactly matches my laptop. If I go in my iphone's firefox history it does not show those old tabs under recently closed tabs! I can't find those anywhere. Help! Had I known it would do this I would have made sure to save the tabs and history somehow! How can I get my iphone tabs and history back?? Thank you

Hi,

Taken the following quote from your FAQ regarding Firefox Android:

"Delete a specific webpage from your browsing history"

This quite simply does not work. I am trying to delete a webpage, but it still shows up on "Firefox suggests" when typing similar words in search bar in browser.

Additional info just in case:

  • No, not confusing this with my google search history.
  • No, I am not syncing the history back in the android browser.

Any suggestions?

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.
