App Switching Always Opens New Tabs | SO Obnoxious

While using Mozilla Firefox browser on my iPad Pro, I often switch back and forth to different apps throughout my workday. The keyboard command shortcut I use is CMD+Tab to switch to different application windows.

The problem that I have is that every time I switch from a different application, BACK to Mozilla Firefox, instead of staying on the website/tab that I was on previously, it opens up a brand new tab. And I have to close the new tab out every single time just to back to the page I wanted to be at before.

In the settings, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to STOP the app from launching a new tab every single time I simply switch back to the application. It’s the most irritating function to have to constantly close out new tab windows.

I have tried to reinstall the application, but it doesn't seem to work. Whenever I start again to sync my account in Firefox for iOS it begins to stop unexpectedly; after 2 to 3 seconds that I reopen the browser, it asks if I want to restore the previous (empty) session and then - without any input from me - it crashes again. I've tried everything, but seems that nothing works after syncronization. Present configuration: iOS 16.1.1 iPhone 13 firefox for iOS: version 107.2

Hi, my Firefox on my iPhone was updated on the latest version (116.0), and upon opening it after the update, I realized all of my open tabs were completely gone! This includes the private browsing tabs, which typically persisted from opening to opening of Firefox. Every tab, both normal and private browsing, is now gone. How can I restore them? I've *never* had any issues with any prior Firefox iOS update before!

This is critical to me; thank you for your help in any way, whether that be it through my synced account (which also lost the open tabs, from what I can see) and/or anything else.

I wanted to use an add on. The site told me I needed to download Firefox, which I thought was odd because I was already using the app. It sent me to the App Store, where I saw I needed to update Firefox. I did so, and went back to the add on page. It was still prompting me to download Firefox. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and am still getting the message that I need to download Firefox to use add ones. It gives me the link to the App Store, which only has the ‘open’ option. When I click that, it just sends me back to the page I have open…which tells me to download Firefox from the App Store.

Can not save images from Google Images, by holding down on the image, and then tapping save image. The menu simply does not pop-up. Holding down on the image results in selection of the image description below. Sometimes you can not save it form the website either, but that is because of website configuration and you can not save it on other browsers, but on other browsers you can save from Google Images by holding down on an image, so it is only the issue of Firefox and not the Google Images website. This issue seems to be present for over 2 years based on online feedback, and it is still not fixed.

"ios homepage settings" (benisjesus2003 9/13/21, 10:44 AM) and "How to open iOS Firefox on blank home page" (miggy.ad 9/16/21, 5:57 PM), both started discussions regarding the use of "about:blank" and seeing a blank page when Firefox iOS opens. There really was not a solution provided. I've a work around for the time being and would like to know if anyone else has a better solution because "about:blank" has been a favorite homepage, Opening Screen, ...etc. Start with the 3 horizontal bars in the bottom right corner. Select {Settings} and {Homepage} is selected, the first setting is [OPENING SCREEN]. Set this to {Homepage}. Scroll down to [CURRENT HOMEPAGE] and type "https://www.blank.org" into {Custom URL}. To save the entry, touch {Firefox Home} just above the entry. The results while not the same as "about:blank" are very similar. If anyone else has a better solution, please post it here. (Please keep any replies positive to we can share ideals and solutions in the common forum.)

Ever since the new update my Firefox has deleted all my tabs and won’t let me open any urls. I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no changes. The only solution I’ve seen that could work would be sending my log report, yet haven’t found anywhere to post said log. Overall I’m lost at where to solve my problem with my app crashing. For context I’m using an iPhone that’s currently running iOS 14.

My Firefox on my iPad alsways crashes when I try to select a synched tabs from another Firefox on a different device. The tabs from the other devices show up and the sync is always up to date, but the windows does not react on any interaction, instead the Browser crashes after about 1 minute of inresponsiveness and returns to the home screen of my iPad. I already discenneted and reconnected the Firefox account used for sync on this browser, it did not help. I use the same Firefox version on my iPhone and that does not have this issues, selecting tabs from other devices works as intended.

Firefox version: 114.3 (31916) iPad OS: 16.5.1 (did not work in iPadOS 16.5. either)
