Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

iOS 14.5.1, iPhone 8, Firefox update 11/7/21. I have 70 tabs open in Firefox. After the latest update, when I open it, nothing on the page works. When I long-press the Firefox icon, select new tab or new private tab, I can enter a URL which is then opened, but then nothing works. It's frozen. Long-press and open last bookmark loads the page, but again, frozen. Actually, it did work once after the update, until I went into settings and told it to open last tab instead of a new one...

Fails to start ... flashes onto screen and then gone. Restarted iPad Air (3rd gen). No improvement.

Reinstalling Firefox would seem to be a next step ... but for the warning that deleting the app will also delete app data. I'm unsure what data is local and what data is in the cloud.

Suggestions?

How do I set Private Browsing as the default so I don't have to activate it every time I open the app? It used to just stay on private browsing all the time when opening the app until the update. Now that feature does not work anymore. Very frustrating to have to go in and look at your tabs and adjust every single time.

The back button returns me to the top of the page instead of where I left off when using my iPhone. It’s annoying to have to keep scrolling down and waiting for more of the page to load to find where I left off. Any idea how to fix this? Chrome also does this. Shopping on sites like Nordstrom Rack becomes so frustrating.

I realize that this may seem trivial, but, while I don’t mind the idea of a home button being accessible on the toolbar, surely it could have been placed in a less inconvenient place. Every time I go to refresh the page I end up on my home page instead. On my desktop, I purposely have the page forward, page back and page refresh separated from my home button. And my home button and bookmark button separated from everything else so as to not inadvertently click on those buttons when I meant to click something else or vice versa. So, while having a home button on the toolbar may seem like a nifty, handy idea, not so if it costs moving the page refresh button from it’s more common placement to an obscure part of the header bar where you are more likely to end up on that pinned tab page or in reader view when trying to refresh. Please put the page refresh back where it was.

After update to iOS 15 this week, my previously rock-solid FF app (on auto-updates) is now crashing repeatedly on switching to the app or opening the app. I keep 6-8 tabs open for quick access which are not full of video, music, or animations. IPhone 12 mini has plenty of storage.

Quick reference between other tasks is not quick when switching to or opening FF brings up the “this is embarrassing” message and then I have to wait for tabs to reload.

Have not updated iPad yet.

For some time, Firefox on iOS will randomly crash when I try to open a link from email or another site, or even when I go to open a new tab. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, but nothing has changed. I’ve now upgraded to iOS 15, and am also using a brand new iPhone 13, but the same issue still occurs. I love Firefox, otherwise, but this is a huge hassle.

I found the old way Firefox opened on the last page I was looking at very useful and I hate the way it opens in the new version. I usually keep several tabs open and dwelling on old topics I have researched. It now completely ignores that and forces me to open on a useless tab requiring me to search through several tabs before finding the one I was on. How can I defeat this useless new function and get my old browser functionality back?
