Does Firefox Have Something that Working Like an Anonymous Browser with Minimal Ads?

Does Firefox have an app, setting, or a different browser than Firefox in Private Browsing mode that allows me not to be tracked and having no or minimal ads while surfing? Firefox in Private Browsing mode has too many ads taking up a lot of space on my smartphone’s screen. I don’t want to have loads of cookies, and web caches after surfing, and don’t want to have to delete unknown cookies on my phone. I have tried Duck Duck Go, Safari with Adguard, Ghostery, Firefox in Private Browsing mode, etc on my iPhone, but still have tons of cookies and web caches, plus unknown cookies on the phone web history.

Thank you very much in advance!

Phone and Firefox up to date. This is NOT immediately after iOS update nor after a Firefox update. I have settings confirmed that should keep me in private browsing. Triple checked this. Even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and reestablished proper settings.

I’ll be browsing in a private browser, will re-open Firefox and SOMETIMES, not always, I’ll be in a non-private browser.

What gives??

Hi,

I am on v100 on iOS (iPad and iPhone). I noticed that in the Recently Visited list on a homepage I can see history from my private browsing included. It's really worrying as I don't see those items in the browsing history.

When I do a search in the recently downloaded Firefox focus, I am still directed to google. Is that how Firefox focus works.? And I thought I would be searching the Internet through Firefox and nothing would be going through Google. The default search engine is still set for Ecosia and there is no option to use Firefox. Did I do something wrong here or is that the way this works?

Firefox not function properly after recent update iPhone 12 mini

Since the most recent update, Firefox now does not close the private tabs on app closure as it should even though the button to say delete this is actually active.

Also, when listening to music through Soundcloud or Bandcamp or YouTube, even after the tab with the music is closed, the music continues to play. This has all started today and is highly frustrating. As is trying to find this feedback page! 45 minutes into trying to “get help” I finally found somewhere to write this problem out. (Though I doubt Mozilla are interested in fixing the issue, judging by the complete lack of customer support and their labyrinthine Help section which I have to say is NOT in any way helpful, just needlessly stressful).

On FF on my iphone, I can open multiple tabs in the privacy tab, go back to the normal tabs, and all the privacy tabs remain to check later. On my ipad however if I go back to the normal tabs, all of the privacy tabs are gone. I rarely need to close them all immediately, but often do want to go back to them, just keeping them saved for later.

It would be nice if the ipad was like the iphone in not immediately closing all tabs, though still keeping them locked away.
