If I send tab to my ipad (ios v12.5.5) from my PC (win 10), it wont arrive on my ipad. I can send tabs from my ipad to my PC or iphone and all work fine. PC to iphone (ios 15.5) or iphone to ipad, again all work. It's only PC to iPad. In fact, I send tabs back & forth from 2 laptops, 2 PCs & iphone and all work fine just PC to ipad

I have notifications on, have signed out of all devices & signed back in, removed devices from sync and re-entered, I have deleted Firefox on ipad and PC, cleared cache & cookies on ipad &PC, still the same issue.

Is it an ios 12.5 issue which is the latest version I can install?

Hey Together

I have an Ipad Air 4.Gen

Now I want to download a file (SRT), the link works, from Safari I can also download it (same website, but not possible here, otherwise loss of work). Stupid thing is that I was working on something for quite a long time, but did this on the Firedox broweser, now the download works but nicher. There is this very short loading bar (blue line), but this is already gone after about 0.5 seconds.

Under downloads I can't find anything in the files or in the download menu of Firefox.

I noticed that Firefox has no access to the files (the app from Apple), but Safari does. However, I can't activate it because there is no "slider" (activation thingy) for it.

How can I solve this problem? Thanks for your answer.

Is there a way to put favorite bookmarks as the starting page for a new tab?

I feel like most browsers let you chose that any new tab you open will be either blank, a specific page, or your favorite bookmarks, but I haven’t figured out how to do this in Firefox yet. It’s very annoying, and if it’s not a functionality yet I hope they will add it soon. It’s been around for ages in other browsers, I can’t believe it doesn’t seem to be a choice in Firefox?

Firefox was working well on my iPhone until about 1-2 months ago (release 100 maybe?) after which time it was suddenly very slow in specific scenarios. Anytime I open a new tab, I cannot move focus to the URL bar or type anything for probably 5-6 seconds. What I type usually does show up eventually. It seems like maybe it is loading something? I tried clearing my cache and offline website data which may have helped some but the behavior is still present and noticeable. I’ve also started experiencing crashes, for example when scrolling the tabs window and recently when I had the Data Management settings window open. I tried closing old (inactive and active) tabs: closing active tabs did not help, and closing an inactive tab takes probably 10-15 seconds to respond to the Delete tap. This never happened previously, so I’m guessing it was something to do with an update. Other browsers I’ve tried do not do this. Thanks – M

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. I have been using Chrome for years and have lots of bookmarks and passwords and such that I want to transfer over. The thing is, I do not typically use a desktop; I use my iOS mobile devices. Is there a way to transfer my bookmarks in the app? Or am I required to use a desktop to complete this?

I've seen this asked (and unanswered) previously.

Since there is an option, I want to know what this is. Does that mean all the rest of the stuff in the cache is public? ' What sort of stuff is in private data? Why do I want to (or not want to delete it.)?

I haven't seen this before and haven't seen it on the OSX Version.

Noticed I had a new(?) inactive tabs section now, while I don’t really mind the idea of them being moved in that section trying to manage them is a bit of a nightmare.

Any time you scroll the list of inactive tabs and swipe one to the left to press delete, the app scrolls you to the top of the list. To me this is a pretty rough user experience that will prevent me from ever really using inactive tabs in any meaningful way.

Using the latest iOS on an iPhone 11.

Thanks, Dylan

I seem to have the problem where Firefox does not recognize a field as a login prompt and the autofill of iOS(Bitwarden in my case, but also not working with keychain) does not pop up. This is especially the case in sites where I first am only able to enter the email, and then the password in a second window. Is there a solution to this problem?

Two things- All links are opening up in private browsing tabs which is not the worst, but incredibly annoying, especially when I’m trying to log in to any work accounts and I wonder why my autofill isn’t working.

Is there a fix to this that I inadvertently broke?

And also the tabs and keyboard on mobile is so unbelievably slow to pull up its insane.This has been happening on my iPhone 12 pro and my wife’s iPhone 13 pro max and there is zero reason to have so much delay when opening up a new tab or clicking on the search bar used to be damn near instant, and NOT connect to the internet for an updated tab list for some reason……

Is there some setting that got automatically turned on on our phones that introduced that latency or is this just how the browser operates now?
