when I enter any search term on any search engine listed on FF, I'm directed to an error page 404. Qwant displays error page, "we have sent you too far mea culpa!"

I have removed and re-installed FF on my phone and re-added Brave and Qwant search engines but they continue returning error messages (404).

If I go directly to the search engine site things function correctly but when using search on the address bar it malfunctions.

In the past the FF search bar with these engines have always worked well.

Any suggestions?

I know that I have seen tons of forums already regarding this issue. However, I still don't understand the reason for me being unable to sync my logins and passwords to my smartphone device via the desktop version of Firefox Browser I have. I switch to this browser from Chrome because of the AdBlock, but I still don't understand how it is so much easier and simpler with them to sync while here I am having a hard time to get all logins and passwords to be available on all of my devices.

The Firefox app crashes constantly. It either freezes and forces me to restart Firefox, or it will freeze for a few seconds and then send me straight to the Home Screen without a transition or error message.

I can pretty consistently make Firefox freeze and/or crash by bringing up an iPhone system window - for example, if the "low battery" notification comes up, or if I swipe down the Notification Center from the top, or if I switch to a different app and then back to Firefox, or if the screen goes to sleep and I unlock it.

Sometimes this starts a crash loop where I try to launch Firefox, the logo comes up on my screen, and then it crashes back to the Home Screen. Again, no error message.

Also, when I tap the menu button it either doesn't respond or takes upwards of 3-4 minutes to bring up the options.

I use an iPhone 8, version 15.6, but this has been going on for at least two previous system updates.

I have updated Firefox (twice now) and cleared all history, cache, and cookies, to no change.

I've tried Firefox Focus and it doesn't have any of these problems, but the lack of tabs is a problem.

Are there any error logs stored somewhere I can check?

I am unable to send tabs back & forth between my iPhone 12 (Firefox), Windows 10 (Firefox), Safari (iOS), etc., despite any settings or other possible fault. There’s no reason for the tabs to not send or sync, the tabs currently open ARE visible across devices, but that’s it. No direct way to contact Support either.

I didn’t think I needed an auxiliary account to sync my bookmarks, iOS App Store saves my game data when I redownload an app. I didn’t until today have a Firefox account because I was under the impression that most everything syncs under the singular account I already have. I’ve lost around 3 years of bookmarks, is there any possible way of restoring them besides restarting my phone from the 2 year old backup?

Quite a few news websites seem to be circumventing Firefox’s reader view feature. This includes my favorite tech website arstechnica.com which insists on using text that is too small to read. Now reader view can only be activated on this website on desktop. This is now the case with a bunch of websites recently. I hope you guys are working on this. Thanks again!

Every time I open my bookmarks toolbar menu, if I scroll down the iOS app crashes. I can’t access the bottom of my bookmarks list as a result, the app crashes before I can click on the link. It’s been happening consistently for weeks.

I would attach a screen recording as I do have one, but it’s only giving me the option to attach a photo.

I’ve tried uninstall/reinstall, logging out and in, etc. but it continues to crash. Is there anything else I can try?

Something happened with the most recent update that is making this app really unusable on mobile iOS. Some issues I've experienced lately include auto fill passwords no longer working, crashes while trying to access reading list and bookmarks, being signed out of websites as soon as I close the app (which is even more annoying now the auto fill password isn't working), webpages just not loading at all, and weird lag when I'm trying to access the settings. Quite disappointed with this, as I've been a long time user and this recent update is making the browser pretty much useless at this point. Any idea how to get these issues dealt with?
