I literally have no idea how to use it. The moment I click to close ad on many websites, the website redirects me. In other browsers, new tab opens which I can just close. However, here I need to return to the previous website, which sometimes even doesn’t work from ad website. How am I supposed to go through closing ads so that I can finally start, e.g. watching a video?

As far as I am concerned there is no way of opening multiple tabs on this browser, which means there most likely isn’t option to automatically open links in a new tab.

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.

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.

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.
