Is there a way of turning off the "start on homepage"? It claims it will only happen after a hour or so but it's almost every time. Surely there must be an option to turn this very annoying feature off.

I realize that this may seem trivial, but, while I don’t mind the idea of a home button being accessible on the toolbar, surely it could have been placed in a less inconvenient place. Every time I go to refresh the page I end up on my home page instead. On my desktop, I purposely have the page forward, page back and page refresh separated from my home button. And my home button and bookmark button separated from everything else so as to not inadvertently click on those buttons when I meant to click something else or vice versa. So, while having a home button on the toolbar may seem like a nifty, handy idea, not so if it costs moving the page refresh button from it’s more common placement to an obscure part of the header bar where you are more likely to end up on that pinned tab page or in reader view when trying to refresh. Please put the page refresh back where it was.

When I close Firefox and go back in to it, I am presented with a new Home Tab now. This is very bad experience for me. What a productivity killer. I want to go back to my last active tab.

Need a “Startup Tab” option for “Where I left off” or “Specific URL” or “New Home Tab”.

This is horrible. Trying to remember not to close Firefox now, but I am careful… quite addicted… to always closing Apps since Apple lies about battery consumption, and I don’t want “background” apps spying on me in anyway.

Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

There seems to have been an update and now any time I start Firefox, it opens on a home page with ‘most used links’. I don’t want to see any links; seeing lots is prompts me to waste more time on the internet. I want to see a blank page like when I open a new tab. How do I do that? It seems impossible now.

Passwords not auto filling

Hello!

Please help me return to Firefox. I miss it. :(

I’ve had to switch to Chrome because I can’t seem to get Firefox for iOS to auto fill the passwords I have saved when trying to log on to every website that required a username or password. I’m not talking about the passwords saved to my iCloud Keychain. I’m talking about the ones specifically saved to my Firefox account.

The passwords auto fill on the desktop Firefox just fine (both Windows and MacOS), but for some reason the Firefox for iOS app doesn’t auto fill the passwords.

Both Save Logins and Show in Application Menu are toggled on, so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

If someone can help me fix this, I will gladly return to Firefox! Thanks so much.

I recently noticed that when I fully close the Firefox app and open it up again, a new blank tab is created, instead of opening up to the tab I was on prior to closing the app.

Not a major issue but slightly annoying, having to close a new blank tab whenever I open the app. Thanks!

Every time I open the Firefox app the browser opens a new window instead of opening on the window I left off on like it used to. Now I’m wasting time looking for the window I was on. Is there a way to stop this from happening so when I open the app again I can pick up where I left off? If this is a new feature it sucks and we should have the option to turn it off. Please let me know if there is a way to turn this off and how to do it. Thanks for your time and help.

Since I can’t find an easy way to send a complaint; guess I gotta ask a question.

The new update (36) adds two new features that are not desired by my personal use. Maybe someone else finds them good, but not me.

Opening the browser and then having to open your tabs to find what you were looking at previously is frustrating. If you want to have the option to have it open to a new “home” tab after idle for a while, cool. Make it a toggle feature. Being forced into this new more cumbersome feature is annoying.

The second frustration is the dedicated Home button at the bottom of the UI. Again, maybe some people find this a plus. I don’t. If I want to go “home” I’ll open a new tab. The desktop browser UI can be customized as you see fit (one of the reasons I switched to it years ago); why not the IOS browser? For me, having the refresh button down there was way more useful. Again, can this be made a toggle or custom select option?

I’m using Firefox Daylight 37.0 (5971) and after updating to iOS 15, Firefox crashes periodically when pressing the “open tabs” icon at the bottom of the screen. I always use Firefox in private browsing mode, if that is important. Also, now whenever I switch to Firefox from another app, it opens up a fresh tab automatically, forcing me to close it, when all I was trying to do was switch to the app.

Hi Team

I am using Firefox for a quite long time in my iphone12 and after the latest version update am facing a lot of issue with reloading a new page when I open the Firefox. This feature was not included in the old version and am very much used to it and now each time I open the app it’s rooting to a new page instead of opening the old page. I need the old version of which makes my work so easy then the latest update is so annoying. Please look into the issue and do the needful.
