I have Background App Refresh disabled system-wide. Yet, the Firefox app managed to get a whopping 8.6 hours of Background App Refresh activity... and eat up a significant chunk of my battery charge in the process. It even used more battery than the Safari app, even though I barely used the Firefox app. Firefox is NOT respecting (and iOS is obviously not correctly enforcing) the Background App Refresh setting.

The Firefox app earned a swift deletion from my iPhone. I may give it a second chance in the future, when Apple and Mozilla have gotten a chance to resolve this Background App Refresh issue.

Attached are two screenshots. The first is my Background App Refresh screen, which shows I have Background App Refresh disabled in its entirety, and the second, my main Battery screen, which shows the excessive amount of battery charge used by Firefox's "Background App Refresh." This is a glaring breach in battery protocol by the Firefox app... and disappointingly, iOS allowed it to happen.

3. Please check on your other firefox browsers whether this website works on any of them - New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Canada - so that I can download it from that country's app store.

4. Will you or can you launch an update of your firefox browser for ANY of the above country App stores' in which my above mentioned website link works, soon?

5.Please tell me whether do you or will you have a Seamonkey browser for android or iOS or any other mobile OS.

Again, Please tell me the exact date when you will launch firefox update on iOS for iPhones as soon as possible.

This is very important for me and very urgent for me.

I use Firefox on both a Windows based Laptop and a Mac Mini, and am very happy with the way it works, so want to install it onto my iPad, but it won't let me do so without updating my credit card details and CVV number, which I do not see any need for and am unwilling to do so for no valid reason. Can someone please advise me why this is required - or perhaps give me a "work-around."

A box popped up on Firefox when I tried to get on the Internet, and that I need to call an 800 number to get this correct. Is this from Firefox and I can trust it? If not, how do I get rid of this box. The only answer on it is "okay" but even when I click it, the box will not go away.

Hello, I have this issue since Firefox 1.1 for iOS. I updated to 1.2 (1206) but the problem persists. When I tap the "tabs count" button on top-right corner, tabs preview screen appears with "+" button on top-right corner but THERE IS NO "incognito" button on its left (it is just black empty area, do you need a screenshot?). Is this a bug or private browsing is not available yet for iOS? If private browsing functionality is implemented, how can I activate it? Thanks in advance! I hope Firefox will become my favorite browser on iOS too! Keep up the good work!

EDIT:Typo.

I was delighted to discover that Firefox was available for my iOS device.

Sadly, the poor implementation of bookmarks renders the app useless for me. I have an long list of frequently accessed sites, and these are organized into bookmark folders. On iOS, I discovered that the sync bookmarks are dropped into a folder labelled "Desktop Bookmarks". Then one has to navigate into the subfolder "Bookmarks Toolbar" and then finally to the site that you want to open. A total of seven clicks is required to open a bookmarked page in a new Firefox window!!!

Bookmarks should have been implemented in the 'awesome' screen. The app today is not something that I can use

When I'm on DeviantArt or any other website with pictures, I am unable to download a picture using the standard "press and hold" method which works on Safari or Chrome on iOS.

Is there a way to download pictures, or am I completely out of luck? This is a very important capability of a browser to me.
