I’m having a massive issue with Firefox draining my battery on my iPad, I only use it for an hour and it uses large portions of my battery. It also seems to be refreshing itself in the background, even though I have the background refresh setting specifically turned off. I’ve noticed that other people have had this problem, and it’s been fixed by and update, but that does not seem to be the case for my usage. Are there any settings I can change or modify?

I want Firefox to default to opening all links in firefox.

Whenever I click a link that is associated with a third party app, Firefox opens that app. It doesn’t happen in safari and it significantly hampers usability. (E.g. the IMDB app streams videos but doesn’t seem to actually show information about the shows, so to easily access it, you need the actual site to open, not the app.) I would like to disable this feature and have everything open in the browser, the way it does in safari. How do I do this?

When I long-press one of the articles under the Thought-Provoking Stories section on the Firefox Homepage and then select Share, the Share menu opens but then closes soon after, before I am able to use it.

This is using a fresh install of Firefox 109.0 (25841) on iPadOS 16.3 on iPad (9th generation).

I took a screen recording of this happening and uploaded it here: https://imgur.com/a/AEBGbSd

Firefox version 109 for iOS introduced the feature to save a fullscreen screenshot of a webpage as a PDF. Is it possible to save it as an image instead?

If not, why? Is it a limitation set by iOS? Doesn’t make much sense to have a PDF of a screenshot.

Hello, I get the 500 Error screen when trying to sync Firefox on my phone. When trying both scan or email. ( I had to erase the app after having signed out, to try and fix a bug. The app kept freezing) Can't seem to find any help from Firefox's... elaborated support system. I'm probably dumb. But I don't have any more time for that. And I can't speak with anyone anywhere apparently.

Waiting for a potential answer here, or switching back to Safari in 24h.

Thank you !

Hello - i am hoping someone can help, as I am a novice and at all this and have come to a bit of a dead end….

I have been building my website on wordpress in Elementor, on Firefox using my iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard. It was all going really well until yesterday and suddenly the ‘right click’ on the edit button doesn’t seem to work any more. Usually a dropdown menu appears so that i can edit the blocks in my website, but now the menu flashes up for a fraction of a second and vanishes.

I have troubleshooted this in Chrome and the right click works in Chrome, so it does seem to be a Firefox issue. I don’t want to have to continue to work in Chrome because it’s actually very clunky, usually Firefox works much better.

I have tried clearing the cache/browser history in Firefox and it is still not working.

So now I am at a loss. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get this functionality working again in Firefox. I have made a screen recording of the issue if that helps at all. I will be eternally grateful if anyone is able to help me with this!

Hello - I have two questions:

1. My seach icon defaults to the dearch bar - before I used to see the Google page with the search window in the center of the webpage - Is there a wau to change my setting to that as a default? 2. Search times on Firefox are taking longer than usual - is there a way to check why and speed this up? In internet speeds are higher than normal so I guess its not related to my internet speed. 3. Cn I talk to a firefox rep?

Thank you

This site keeps showing a pop up, and there is no way to dismiss it! Also, there is no way to report the site as the ellipsis that is supposed to appear in the address bar isn’t there!

The Report site needs to be in the burger menu!

Wait for the site to load, and after a few seconds, a pop up appears asking you if you want emails. If there’s an X to close the pop up, I can’t see it. If you click in the top right where you’d expect the x to be, it still won’t dismiss

I have always been a Safari Browser user, but I recently chose to switch to Firefox because it seemed better, but I encountered a problem. I have an external Password Management Software, and whenever on Safari I happened upon a loginbox, automatically, in the keyboard below, I would get the option to automatically enter the password from this software; on Firefox it no longer comes up and I don't know how to do it.

Could someone help me with that? Thanks in advance.
