Is this a feature? If not, can it be? I frequently use reading mode, especially on horrifically laid out sites such as news and magazine sites. I frequently have to scroll up and down a bunch of times to get the address bar to come back so I can use it. How do I disable this hiding behavior? If I can’t, why? With modern phones being so absurdly tall it’s not like the bar takes up crucial real estate, people should be able to keep it visible if they want.

Thanks T

Using Firefox on iOS I’ll pull up a PDF, file like a manual. I can scroll down (higher pages numbers) but anytime I reverse and scroll up at all it immediately goes back to page one. This seems to happen on all PDF files. Using an iPad running iPadOS 17.2 with Firefox 121.2.

I reset Firefox to factory settings. Now I'm missing bluetooth and battery strength indicator in top bar and also missing bookmarks shortcut. Where the bluetooth and battery strength indicator usually are, are the words "Windows" and "Help". Clicking or double clicking on either one offers no help. The bluetooth and battery strength indicator show when I'm in Safari.

This issue is NOT a crash but no topic matched it. I repeatedly have trouble with pages on rogerebert.com/reviews. For example, this one: https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/leave-the-world-behind-movie-review-2023

The page loads fine but while I am reading it, every 30-60 secs it reloads and takes me back to the top of the page. I have been having this problem for a couple of weeks now and it has persisted thru a couple of updates.

I am running IOS 17.2 on an iPhone13 mini.

The navigation bar in Firefox for iPad OS is very sensitive when using the Magic Keyboard trackpad. Even when scrolling down sometimes it auto shows itself creating a disruptive user experience. Is there anyway to disable this feature and always show the navigation bar in FireFox for iPad?

‘Pay with PayPal’ functionality on websites is broken for me and has been across updates of both Firefox and iPadOS for as long as I can remember at this point. I’m using an iPadPro running iOS 16.7.2 with Firefox for iOS version 120.4 (36613). When I’m checking out at e-commerce sites (e.g., J Crew), and I click on the PayPal button when selecting a form of payment, a new tab opens, but it’s literally blank — nothing even tries to connect or load. This happens across e-commerce sites. It doesn’t happen with Firefox on my PC/Windows laptop or on my iPad with other browsers (Chrome, Safari). I have tried everything that I can uninstall/reinstall, deactivate, or toggle, and nothing seems to fix this. I have cross-site tracking disabled in iOS. Some people have suggested that websites are not fully supporting Firefox any longer or that there is a problem with Firefox and Apple’s proprietary rendering engine. I’m really at the end of my wits about this. After having used Firefox faithfully since Netscape disappeared, I’m honestly on the verge of giving up. Please help.

When I go to use the find in page feature it will show me how many results there are and it does highlight the found items. But pressing the arrows doesn’t navigate to the found phrase, so I have to scroll the page myself. Is there a way to fix this? I use the feature a lot so it’s very frustrating that it’s only doing 50% of the task. I’ve tried uninstalling, but that didn’t help.

Longstanding Scrolling BUG in FF for iOS Reader View

When I switch to Reader view in FF for iOS (text-only view), I can sometimes scroll smoothly to the bottom of an article, and sometimes Reader view suddenly starts yanking me down to the bottom of the web page when I attempt to scroll down. What do I mean by 'yanking'? I scroll down a screen's worth of text, read the next screen, and scroll again, read again, and at seemingly random moments, the view scrolls by at rapid speed to the bottom of the page. I can then try to scroll up--and it will let me scroll rapidly, pulling up so quick that the scrolling continues a moment to catch up after I remove my finger from the screen--but as soon as I try to fine-tune by touching the screen and holding it as I move it up and down a little at a time, YANK! and I'm at the bottom of the screen again. Sometimes I can leave reader view, reload the web page without leaving the page, reset to reader view, and be successful at scrolling the entire article. Other times I have to close the web page and open a new window to start over.

This happens on more than one website, and has been a problem through multiple iOS iterations (at least since iOS 14) and FF updates (I keep my FF on auto-update). Currently on iOS 17.0.3 iPhone 12 mini with FF 118.2 (34971).

The new user interface for IOS is insanely hard to use. I have an IPhone 12 mini, and recently the interface changed from one that had a large search bar at the bottom of the screen with bigger buttons and easier access. Now, it’s just one tiny row with no search bar on screen, making me either get rid of the tab or open a whole new one to search. The buttons are also ways smaller. I haven’t seen any way to get rid of this new UI and I’m not sure if i’m the only one having the issue.

Hi It seems the latest ff update for iOS now shows a dialogue (not sure what the correct name is) every time I close a tab. The dialogue is “Tab Closed Undo”. It appears for a few seconds and then disappears. Much in the same fashion as every time take a photo on my iPhone there is a thumbnail of the pic I just took.

I absolutely hate these things. I either have to wait until they go away on their own or I have to waste time swiping them away. I know Mozilla is only responsible for the Tab Closed Undo dialogue.

Is there someway I can disable this new “feature”?

Thanks so much.

Since yesterday’s update, whenever I try to touch the address bar to enter in something (anything at all), it flashes for a bit and doesn’t do anything. It’ll show the search engine and go back to its usual state. I’ve never had this issue before.

I’ve tried redownloading the app on my iPad (Silicon iPad from 2022. Firefox and my iPad are at the latest version.), but nothing’s worked.

I’m out of options. Can anyone help?
