This may be the wrong forum for this question. If so, I apologise.

Is it possible to use Firefox to find out when a viewed website was last updated? I know that in another browser, it is but cannot see a way of doing it with Firefox.

Cheers

Entering search string in the URL text field doesn't work

Hi community,

Hopefully, someone can help me with this strange issue:

I've installed Firefox for iOS (iPhone) and would like to add DuckDuckGo as my default search engine but there seems to be an issue with the query string as shown on this support page.

When entering DDG to the list in Settings using the suggested query string "https://www.duckduckgo.com/search?q=%s", every search in the URL text field (in this case "vin") sends me to the DDG start page where my string is changed to "search" in the search field (see image) and below with a bunch of search engines. Then I have to enter my initial search string one more time.

Hopefully, this explanation makes sense.

What can I do? Any help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Peter

There is an on/off switch in the Android version of Firefox: Setting>Customize>Scroll to hide toolbar that is not there is the iOS version, that I use on my iPad. I've looked everywhere in the iPad version's settings, but that entire section (Customize) isn't there. Is there some way to make the toolbar in the iOS version visible all the time? It's really useful when I've scrolled down to read a page and need to switch tabs, something I do quite a lot.

I can’t find the Auto-fill settings in FF on iOS. I found instructions here for where they should be and they are not there. Was this feature taken away recently. It’s VERY tedious not having this feature. Am I doing something wrong?

Firefox for iOS keeps requiring login on Google.com for search

Hello, for weeks now, upon doing Google searches using Firefox for iOS, I have been prompted to log in to my Google account, even though I was already logged in before and did not log out. It's not just to the extent that every time I start a new browser session and do a search, I have to log in -- I just navigate away from the app to another one and return, and I'm prompted to log in again even though I didn't quit the browser.

I've already searched for solutions to this problem and found the suggestions to clear browser cache, which I did, and to make sure cookies are enabled ... which I can't seem to do because I cannot find any such setting in the Firefox app settings itself, or in my phone's system settings under "Firefox".

I also realize this might be an issue with Google or my phone itself.

I'm using an iPhone 11 running iOS 17.2.1 and my Firefox app is up to date.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I'm using Firefox on iOS along with the Bitwarden app for password management. I've noticed that Chrome and Safari display Bitwarden suggestions for password autofill directly in the toolbar, but Firefox does not. Is this due to my settings, or could it be an unfixed bug with Firefox on iOS? Has anyone else encountered this issue or knows if it's being addressed?

In the version prior to 122.0.1, I was able to restore a previous session I had accidentally closed by going to the toolbar menu button, choosing History, and then selecting the Restore Previous Session button. But in 122.0.1, that button no longer appears. How can I now achieve a restoration of the previous session?

Every few months or so, after closing and reopening the app I find that all my stats etc. are gone on any websites that store stats. It's not a cookie selection I made, these websites manage to keep the cookies for weeks or months (exactly 150 days this time according to a streak I had on a daily game) and then one day it's all gone. Is there some sort of cookie expiration setting or storage cap I can change to prevent this?

When I migrated my information to a new machine a bunch of settings were changed. One of which is the tab colors. I've adjusted colors for text etc. But I can't get the tab colors to be anything other than black with white writing which combined with the incredibly small writing it seems close to impossible to read without bifocals. How can I adjust?
