Dear, I’m trying to switch from Safari to Firefox on iOS but I’m having the following issues:

1- Dark mode is always on and changes every pages color. I have to manually switch it off and, if I close the app, it switches back on automatically. I would love to make it always off (currently I’m using dark theme but I tried to use light theme to check if it keeps dark mode off even after closing the app however it doesn’t… leads to my second issue);

2- I selected light theme and it was working until I close the app. When I reopen it goes back to dark theme (and dark mode too). I chose the option manually switch however it goes automatically anyways.

3- I use Google as my main search engine and I always login to my account however, after I close the app, it logoff automatically and I have to login back again.

I don't know if this is a system wide iOS issue or something specific to Firefox, but I'm not able to disable link preview when long pressing a link. I was able to disable it in Safari which also disabled it in iMessage, but link previews are still showing up in Firefox and Firefox Focus. It's very surprising for a browser focused on privacy and security. I should not have to make a connection to another server in order to see the URL behind a link. Automatically downloading from an unknown URL opens my device up to zero day exploits and privacy violations. Does anyone know how to disable this completely or submit a bug report to Firefox?


/edit: moved thread from (desktop) Firefox to Firefox for iOS section.

I'm trying to determine if this is something happening in the browser itself or some terrible function of certain websites, but several times recently while using Firefox, webpages regularly refresh themselves. Is this supposed to be happening, and how do I make it stop? I'm on iOS Firefox 117.3 (34056).

Why is there no bookmarks toolbar for Firefox IOS? This makes the program useless to me. Is there any way to create and see bookmarks? None of the answers in the forums are of any help. What you tell me I should see I don’t see.

I’ve used Firefox for years because I support non-corporate efforts like this, but the lack of quick access to create and use bookmarks is a deal-breaker for me.

Hi, my Firefox on my iPhone was updated on the latest version (116.0), and upon opening it after the update, I realized all of my open tabs were completely gone! This includes the private browsing tabs, which typically persisted from opening to opening of Firefox. Every tab, both normal and private browsing, is now gone. How can I restore them? I've *never* had any issues with any prior Firefox iOS update before!

This is critical to me; thank you for your help in any way, whether that be it through my synced account (which also lost the open tabs, from what I can see) and/or anything else.

I have been using Firefox for years with no problem but over the past 2 weeks it has been driving me absolutely crazy. I made absolutely no changes to the settings but every day it is logging me out of LinkedIn, Gmail, etc etc...sites that I use all the time. Totally annoying. Was this the result of some update? And more importantly, how can I fix it? Thanks!

I'm using Firefox to access academic papers and online books. Because most of this content requires a subscription, I usually visit these web pages through my University library site. However, its not letting me open the destination file. e.g. I can open https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/21670811.2018.1533788?journalCode=rdij20 but not the full article. To open the full article I need to be logged in through my institution's library.

I have changed my proxy settings to 'no proxy' - can you please suggest what else I can do?

It normally works fine on other computers.

Thanks, Claire
