I just did a Google image search on my pixel 8 and saw that all the image results were forced to "fit width" so I can only really see 1 result at a time. I have the "Google Search Fixer" installed and dialsabling it returns the image search view to gallery. But when I enable to addon it goes back to that "ft to wish" view.

I've looked through the options and tried searching for similar problems/solutions and found nothing. How do I return my Google image search view to gallery? It's really obnoxious and frustration to only be able to see 1 image at a time when searching.

When playing a video on YouTube the video is choppy and drops around 2/3 of the frames. This happens on every video that I click on.

I have found that if I double tap to jump back 10 seconds in the video it will no longer drop frames and play smoothly, but if I change the playback resolution it returns to being choppy until jumping in the video again.

I am currently running the latest stable download from the play store, and my phone is a OnePlus 8t.

Hello, everyone!

I'm encountering a perplexing problem with downloading .mobileconfig WiFi profile files through a direct link in my ReactJS web application. This functionality works flawlessly on Google Chrome, Safari, and Edge across iPhone and iPad devices. However, when attempting the same on Firefox for iOS, the downloaded file becomes corrupted and unrecognizable as a .mobileconfig file.

The download mechanism is implemented using a simple anchor tag that points directly to the file on the server. Interestingly, only in Firefox on iOS, the content of the .mobileconfig file gets altered during the download process, leading to corruption.

I'm keen to understand why this issue is occurring specifically with Firefox on iOS and how to resolve it. Has anyone else faced a similar challenge or have any insights on how to ensure the file downloads correctly on all browsers, including Firefox on iOS? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help!

Whenever the app leaves the foreground, even for half a second, or if I switch tabs and then return to the original tab, it refreshes and I lose all the data on it. When I need to copy information to fill out a form, or get a code from a 2fa app, I lose all the the progress. This is driving me crazy and making it almost impossible for me to use Firefox as my main browser. I shouldn't have to restart a whole form because I got a phone call and went to the call screen for a second. Battery optimizations are all disabled.

It's so annoying that you ask for my password when I'm already logged in obviously. I'm on the same phone the same internet at the same address you should know by now it's me. And then nobody remembers the password even though they said they remembered it and I don't remember it. And it says if I reset my password I'm going to lose all the bookmarks and all of my logins. What the heck? Why isn't there always option just to login with my Google account? It does sometimes but not always.

For some reason my browser occasionally jumps over to a private browsing tab and I may never realize Firefox has performed this action. I may continue with my research for any length of time when I may need to look at something other than my browser, say jump over to a Note or some other function not having to do with Firefox, when I return I find maybe an hour of research has automatically been closed and of course there is no record of that lost work. This function is really frustrating additionally it's tricky that a link to another site or page of information can cause the Firefox Browser to open the following tab in Private Mode, then automatically close when it becomes necessary to look at some other functions on my Android device, everything is wiped out gone lost no way to retrieve the info.

What ever happened to Lazarus, the app that always brought back lost work, private or otherwise? That was an excellent and very helpful tool. Is there some other way unknown to me where I can retrieve those closed private tabs, how do I stop the links from auto-opening privately, and I'd like to know how to stop private tabs from closing when I leave those tabs to focus on something other for a split second.

Please advise. Thank you.

Sometimes randomly, but happens often when using EBay, clicking on link opens to a new blank tab. The tab lists about:blank. Sometimes the link will work after a couple tries, but sometimes can take more than 5 times to get the link to open. On some sites it can happen randomly, but it’s pretty repeatable while using eBay. I have deleted the app from iPad, did a hard reset, and reinstalled the app, but there is no difference in behavior. Behavior started with the most recent Firefox iOS update. Firefox iOS, Firefox 124.0 (39709), iPad iOS running all latest versions and updates as of 03/24.

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.

Hi @all, Such quite a while, Firefox almost constantly crashing when closing a or better the last open tab. Tried a support hint and deleted cache and everything and after that it worked for a few days and then it coming up again. When it happens, and I restart FF and try a logged in page directly, I.e. Facebook, FF doesn’t recognize my signin. Closing the tab, waiting a moment, restart the page again and everything is fine. Really don’t know when this behavior begun, but it is really annoying. I face this problem on 2 different iPad Pro. The newer one from last year with an M2 processor and an older one with an Axx don’t know which one exactly. What’s the matter with that? Kind regards Frank

[With ~Ff 123?8 and now 124 installed on iOS 17.3 platform updated a couple weeks ago from iOS 15.+ on my iPhone XR]

  For couple weeks , following any external link/reference, such as all 'unsubscribe' links from Apple Mail messages, Firefox opens but homepage rather than to the link/url argument (and url field shows blank, not display the extrrnal link's url address in url input box.
  Support history shows an identical problem in Ff ~117 reported (Aug '23, I think)   (if the condition of Firefox not currently running is same, which I haven't yet been able to determine) and apparently resolved then ( 2 replies, but thread is not visible because FF Support has it recorded as "Archived").
