hi. so, whether i have been screwed over for it or not i have always used firefox and love it- since the 90s. its easy and always fresh. now i keep getting directed to chrome which to be fair has screwed me by making it hard to see where you are logged in and allowing me to be hacked. I am deathly afraid of it but keep getting directed there. I want to find a way to manage my emails safely. i do kind of trust google- not chrome. you probably have no idea what i am talking about- and you probably think i am crazy just like everyone else- i wish i was honestly so i could sleep and be around humans and patients again after therapy but i am not. i want to know if thunderbird is an app or can i access emails through it- or am i wrong? i jusy need a way to make my life easier and get to work.

With this past update my refresh button turned into a new tab button. To refresh now I have to go to the page actions menu and refresh from there. I legitimately don’t understand why this extra step was added. Also, for some sites the option to refresh doesn’t even show up. Is there any way to put the refresh button back where it used to be?

I ran the latest iOS 14 update for Firefox and now the app doesnt start. When I click the app icon, it opens up the "load screen" with Firefox logo on it, but it stays there for about 10sec and then it crashes.

I haven't ran re-install of the app yet as I have tens of unbookmarked pages that I would rather not lose.

Any ideas?

Received email from Firefox Friends... Announcing newly released Firefox for iOS in Australia. Email provided link to AppStore to download this App.

Download and install of App was successful.... It was version 1.0 (43) onto an iPad 2.

However, as per the email, the app was supposed to have a Device Section in Settings, accessible via cogwheel icon after click on the Tab. The Device Section was missing?

The App also missing the Use Compact Tabs switch.

As I was using firefox, I opened one web address in my favorites folder, and suddenly all websites opened up in different tabs. I closed firefox and when I reopened it it asked me to restart in safe mode. When I eventually opened up I wasn't signed in so I attempted to sign in using my email, it stated that was not found so I used my other email to no avail. I then asked firefox to email me my username using both emails. I did not receive any email. I am in limbo, all my add ons are not accessible because I can't sign in. I don't know what to do. I'm not worried about my password, I just can't get my user name straightened out. Please help. Thank you.

I recently saw that Firefox was available on iOS so I immediately switched as all my desktop browsing is in Firefox. I set up sync as well as I think I can but I am having a problem. On iOS I am unable to view history items which were created on the desktop before sync was enabled. Any web pages I view now show up just fine using sync, but none of my older history which would be very useful to be able to search. Is there any way currently for the entire history to be synced and not just new entries?
