Hi,

I'm using Firefox for all my devices. I activated synchronization of all items from all devices. But the History is not synchronized between devices. Meaning, from my Windows Firefox, I'm not able to see the history from my Android device, and vis versa.

I'm using last versions of FF from all my devices (I always update to last version when one is available).

Is there something I'm missing?

Many thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Hello, since the latest update, the entire app is really slow. Especially when typing in search terms into the universal browser window. I've also noticed freezing of the app which requires closing out the app and opening again to fix. I have lots of tabs I do not want to lose so deleting the app completely is not an option. Please advise. I believe this has been reported multiple times in the app store with users experiencing the same or similar issues. Thank you

Since the last update the Android status bar (top bar with the notifications, time, WiFi, battery info, etc) disappears when start browsing in the light mode. When launching the Firefox app everything is OK but as soon I start browsing the icons on the bar just turn white. ( Please see the images below) Before the last update it worked well. Any suggestions to solve this issue?

I followed instructions in the article recommended for this topic, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-saved-passwords-firefox-ios, to verify that "Save Passwords" and "Show in Application Menu," whatever the latter means, are already checked.

Nevertheless, Firefox does NOT ask me whether to save the password for a new site login, nor do these passwords appear to be listed in Firefox.

What am I doing wrong? Running Firefox 106.0 under iOS 15.7.1 (from app store) on iPhone 13 Pro. Please help! -- jclarkw

Command + F has suddenly stopped working. Other command functions (e.g., command + L) continue to work as expected, including cut/copy/paste. But command + F simply does not work (going to the menu and selecting the manually selecting the magnifying glass also still works, so it’s not something systemic with the search window, i wouldn’t think).

I posted a message on the App Store indicating the situation, and received a reply from the dev asking me to post my “report” here - not sure if this qualifies, though.

Whenever i use Firefox on my iPad, if I switch to another app and then back to Firefox, Firefox will automatically open up a new tab. I’d like it to stop, and just go to what I set it as in Preferences, or to what I’ve left open when I switched away from it. I’ve looked in Preferences and cannot find out how to stop it from opening new blank tabs by default.

Is there a way to stop it from doing this?

Disabling JavaScript in Firefox Focus

Is there any means to add an option to disable JavaScript in Firefox Focus? This browser has been my go-to / default browser for years on iOS, but lately it has become more difficult to use because websites wait several seconds or wait until I’ve scrolled halfway through a page before blasting a huge window up on the screen asking/demanding/requesting I sign in or agree to their (not so private) privacy policy. Even if I get by that, it seems to refresh the page and I lose where I was.

I’ve found Safari obviates this issue when I leave JavaScript off. I don’t really want to shift entirely to safari, but websites have made using Firefox Focus a bit less useful because of those pop-up windows.

I primarily use Tor Browser or Firefox with uBlock Origin (JavaScript disabled) on my regular computers and happily have few issues using the internet.

Hi all! I use 1Password as my main password management for my iPhone (I have it as my default). When I am on a website that requires me to fill my credentials, most of the time does not provide me the option to do auto fill. I have to exit Firefox iOS and copy and paste all the required info from the 1Password App.

In most of the other apps, the auto fill option shows on top of the keyboard.

Is there something I need to enable to get the auto fill option to constantly show?

I have attached pictures of what i am referring to below

Hi there, like it says. My firefox crashes immediately upon trying to play a video. Even simply scrolling over a video on youtube or google results, it breaks when it tries to the preview. This is the same on Twitter, Facebook, Campus Moodle, etc. Every website I use.

I've had this problem before and I did fix it by totalling wiping my history and browsing cache. Doing that and having to sign back into everything is super tedious though and I don't want it to keep happening. This doesn't happen when I use firefox's troubleshooting mode, everything works as normal and videos play without the browser crashing. So I think it must be something specific to my browsing history somehow? But I've no idea how that could crash the browser just from trying to play a video.

Where can I find the extension for Grammarly. I hate it; can't go to extensions just add-ons. Please don't offer it as part of Firefox. It doesn't like you to use a semicolon; wants you to use a full sentence instead of Correctly using a semicolon. Stupid addition!

Hello community, As soon as firefox 106.0.2 finished installing itself i was greated with some nice new color schemes to choose from, and also some other settings regarding accessing content and tabs from other devices, retrieving closed tabs and so on. Ever since i can't seem to find and access those settings. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm on linux, Manjaro.

I accidentally deleted my browser history on my computer, but I have it synced to my phone. I unsynced browser history and as of right now my phone still has all of my browser history. Will this stay there or will all the content that initally came from my computer be deleted? I already clicked 'synchrosnise now' after unsyncing my computer, and it hasn't seemed to make a difference.

Furthermore, if i end up syncing my browser history again between the two devices, will all of that history be deleted?
