For the last month or so, every time I try to open a link in an E-mail and sometimes other links, Firefox puts up your little yellow header banner to tell me you have "prevented a pop-up" - these are not pop-ups, but links ! This is stopping me opening links to Facebook, Nextdoor and any other links sent in E-mails. Links in Al Jazeera, CNN, and BBC on line work just so you know the full picture. This is partly annoying, but more seriously I am still working, (SE) and it is only a matter of time before I have something serious that I will not be able to deal with if I can not open the link to it. Also, and it may or may not be connected, some time ago, back end of 23, before I became aware of the above problem, I started to be unable to preview PDF's before sending them. I just get a blank page. Not great when you consider that most of my invoices are sent electronically, but at least even tho' I can't see them, to check, they are getting to my customers. The link problem is of course the more annoying/serious one and definitely to do with Firefox, by your own admission of the yellow header notification. HELP. Oh ! my E-mail is goblander@hotmail.com, because if you reply here, and I get sent an E-mail........I wont be able to use the link, will I !! See the problem !

Cheers. John

would like to raise my concern my curiosity regarding a recent issue I encountered. Specifically, I need to address how my IP details are being accessed, especially when using enhanced protection measures.

Hello,

I am having an issue where my Firefox is displaying suggestions from sites I have visited only ever in private browsing mode. When I type a letter with this site, it appears as a “Firefox Suggested” search, not a Google search which I have already disabled. I have cleared my history, cleared my cache, reinstalled, done the same on all my devices, ensured I have no bookmarks or any remnants of the site visited, yet they remain visible on my phone. I am on Firefox for IOS, my IOS and Firefox are updated to the latest edition as of 04/11/2024. I am ensure what to do, as I really can’t allow this. Is there a way to turn this off, or is my only option to just switch back to Safari for the time being? Please let me know, as I need this turned off or to figure out how to clear this specific suggestion despite it being nowhere in my history, bookmarks, cache, downloads, or anywhere else.

hi

i use the ios firefox app on iphone 13 ios 16.5.1

the firefox app used to open automatically where it was left off for example if i had closed it while in view mode of all the private tabs and reopend it would still be there in private mode with all tabs in view.

it no longer does this instead it always opens on the standard browsing mode. it also only opens links from other apps in standard browsing mode too now when i open them in the app.

i noticed this start happening maybe a few weeks ago not sure exactly when. i dont think it was a change in my settings because i searched them all for something like this and recall it always being the previous way where it would stay in private mode after being closed.

does anyone know how to fix this or experienced the same?

thanks

I ALWAYS use FF in incognito mode. I do not ever switch to non incognito. However, after closing FF (iphone14 pro max, all fully updated) for a couple of hours, when I open, it’s magically back on NONincognito mode.

Also, when in incognito mode, FF still keeps cookies after I have deleted them and cleared caches.

Firefox keeps auto logging me out of sites when I close the app!

Recently Firefox has started to automatically log me out of the sites that I regularly visit on the iOs version of the browser. I then have to keep logging back in each time I visit the sites. It's also incredibly finicky in the fact that sometimes I will be logged into one site, but not another, as if it's slowly deleting the history/logins or temporarily remembering certain sites before forgetting them again.

I'm on the regular tab for the browser app, not in the private/incognito one, but this continues to happen.

Trying to find an answer online leads me to people talking about a "never remember history" toggle, but never where to find it on iOs, just on the desktop browser. The only equivalent I can find for this is the "clear private data" under the data management tab, but when I try to toggle those off for browsing history, cache and cookies, they are auto switched back to on when I leave the settings as there is no way, or indication, of saving.

I don't know if this is something to do with the most recent update(Firefox 115.0) or what, but I'd like to figure out an answer because the continuous having to log in on my own device that I only use into what are my accounts on sites is starting to get frustrating.

Hi,

I am a very happy user of Firefox om both Windows an iOS. I have noticed that web site data is stored in Firefox for IOS when browsing in private mode.

Can you explain why?

My expectation was, that no data was stored in private mode.

Best regards, Morten
