Before Firefox used to keep private tabs 'open and available' till you closed the page out, for iphones, ipads, etc. Now all my private tabs are closing out every time I close the app. Before there used to be a section in settings that would allow you to turn this feature on/off, however it's not in settings anymore. I wanted to know if there is another way around this. I want to be able to keep private tabs open when I close out Firefox on my phone and ipad.Before I would have all my tabs available jut like regular browsing but now its cleared out evey time. Is there anyway to fix and change this?

I’ve updated to IOS Firefox version 127.0 I lost a good chunk of tabs in the private browsing section after this update removed the ability to leave private browsing tabs open after exiting the app. Scrolling down to the privacy section of the settings for my application showed me that the button/prompt for that setting was removed outright. If this was an intentional decision, it should have been noted in the update/change logs in preview of the IOS app store. I don’t agree personally with this change, but it happened regardless.

Firefox for iPadOS (version 125.1) does not completely download files. I get the blue „Completed“-bar at the bottom of the screen. Most of the time it gives the correct file name in the download folder and sometimes, as with Thingiverse, the name of the download is „Unknown“. But always the download is just a few kB big. I have to copy&paste the URL to Safari and redo the download. Safari always does downloads correctly. Suggestions highly appreciated.

Regards Gerhard Barbist

Pic.1 Download should be 2MB. Filename not correct. Filename see pic. 3 Pic.2 Blue bar at bottom indicating completed download Pic.4 Files in my „Files“ app. Every download just 7kB

Hello! I’m trying out the whole AI search engine thingy with You.com but i wanna use firefox rather than the IOS app that they provide. I’ve already set You as the default search engine and that all works when I’m searching from within Firefox. But when using the IOS Spotlight search thingy, e.g the search thing that IOS app then pressing the firefox icon with my search, it simply searches with google instead of You.com.

Is there a fix for this?

Safari on an iPhone has the ability add a bookmark to the iphone home screen which makes organizing and getting to the desired bookmark easy. I would like to use Firefox instead of Safari but it doesn't appear that Firefox on iOS on an iphone has the ability to add a bookmark to the iPhone home screen. Is that correct? Or am I not doing something correctly.

How is it possible that such a glaring design error still exists after so many have asked for so long?

And to those commenting completely incorrect and unhelpful steps that lead to menus that don’t exist in the settings, WHY?

I’m bout to go back to safari. I love everything Firefox stands for but this is such a glaring oversight I can’t help but wonder what else is being missed.

iOS link preview cannot be disabled

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.

Until today, Fire Fox on my iPad has reliably interacted with the iOS password repository to auto fill passwords for web sites. Now it presents the prompt to use a saved password but it never goes and retrieves it. It leaves the login and password fields blank. I’m using Firefox 116.2 (33536) and iPadOS 16.6.

It has also stopped working on my iPhone.

As of this morning Firefox crashes on start up on both my iPad and my iPhone, both running on iOS 16.2. On the iPhone no messages are shown, it simply crashes. On the iPad however a message is shown that Firefox seems to have crashed and I'm asked whether I want to restore tabs. Choosing either 'yes' or 'no' results in starting up Firefox and crashing again with the same message/question as a result.

I have removed and reinstalled Firefox on my iPad. It did start up and I was able to sign in with my account. However, when I wanted to use Firefox again, crashing on start up was there again.

I have included a crash report from my iPhone.

My Firefox crash on my iPhone (IOS 16.2) since 108 update BUT ONLY when I connect/sync to my account (if I don't try to connect to account it works fine, but its then quite useless). Each time I reconnect =) CRASH (pop up says "hum firefox as crashed. do you want to reopen? I click ok = it recrashes again and again) I'm getting to you as I've tried ALL solving problem issues I could find but none seems to work. Basically I have: - Desinstalled and reinstalled the App (from store or link) 10 times already. - “Repaired” my Firefox account on PC in case it had someting to do with it. - Posted the issue on Apple IOS support which answered that if it runs ok on Mac PC then pbm come from Mozilla not IOS. - Posted the issue on French Mozilla support 5 days ago and get no answer NOTHING works and I can not get a crash report as FIrefox is not accessible once it has crashed right? Can any one help please? Thanks
