Firefox displays pdf files very nicely, but how do I save the file to my download folder?

FF help says this is done by “clicking the download link” but I cant find any download links anywhere in the FF GUI, when the pdf is displayed.

I'm sure its there somewhere, but I just cant find it..

Help appreciated,

Cheers, Lars Bo

When I have a pdf file displayed, there is no way to save it. I found a workaround on this forum (using share/copy and then paste in the files app), but this does not always work. Also in that thread, it was noted that the issue has been resolved, but this is also not (always) the case. Case in point: when traveling to Germany, because of corone, one has to register at einreiseanmeldung.de. This is a questionnaire, which in the end produces a pdf which has to be saved in order be be allowed access to the country. However, both the button giving access to the file and the displayed file itself give no way whatsoever to download it in FireFox for iOS (or rather iPadOS). Moreoever, one cannot just keep this tab open, as a link in the pdf has to be clicked to upload a test/vaccination result, and this link also cannot be opened in a new tab. In the end, due to the issues with FireFox, I had to reregister on this webpage (via a different browser), which may lead Germany to believe two people are entering and to send me double the forms.

Please add thus very basic functionality!

Have Firefox/Mozilla as browser. Was using Yahoo but it wasn't the default page. On the top of the Firefox page, I was able to have several tiles to click on for frequently used sites. Below them I had Pocket and a daily list of pocket essays. Is it possible to have these wonderful tools again on a new site? If so, how do I set them up?

Thank you, cmacc

Firefox treats URL as search terms instead of as URL

I have been accepted in the Neeva beta and I want to make Neeva my default search engine for Firefox on my iPhone. Neeva gave me a URL to go to in Firefox that would do this. The URL is:

https://alpha.neeva.co/search?q=%s&src=nvobar

But, after I enter that into the URL bar and hit go, FIrefox treats it as search terms and sends it to my current search engine (DuckDuckGo) as a search instead of going to the URL.

I can't seem to find away to make it go to the URL. I've even entered the URL into one of my notes applications and then clicked on it from that and that didn't work either because it expanded some of the characters.

How can I get Firefox to follow this URL?

Thanks.

There seems to have been an update and now any time I start Firefox, it opens on a home page with ‘most used links’. I don’t want to see any links; seeing lots is prompts me to waste more time on the internet. I want to see a blank page like when I open a new tab. How do I do that? It seems impossible now.

Search tool for saved passwords on iOS won't populate searches. When I go to Firefox settings to passwords it shows all of my usernames and passwords, it saves them just fine. But when I need to search for a password for a specific site, I enter that site in the "Filter" bar and Firefox reads back "No logins found." Now if I scroll and scroll to find the password, sure enough, there it is. For some reason Firefox will not populate search results in my passwords. I have found that if I type letter by letter very slowly (G *wait for G to populate*, O *wait for "GO" to populate*, O *wait for "GOO" to populate) that it will sometimes work.

Firefox is as up to date as possible. And I am currently updating iOS to see if that helps (as of 12/27)

Hi everyone,

I'm trying out Firefox for iOS v26 and when I open a new tab, I want to see my Bookmarks rather than Top Sites. The help section in the support pages here states that a New Tab can be configured to show a variety of different setups. However, in v26, Firefox Home, Blank Page and Custom URL are the only options displayed.

Is this expected behaviour?

I know I can browse through my Bookmarks to open the page I want, but it would be more convenient to have them displayed, just like I have setup in Safari.

Any ideas?

"ios homepage settings" (benisjesus2003 9/13/21, 10:44 AM) and "How to open iOS Firefox on blank home page" (miggy.ad 9/16/21, 5:57 PM), both started discussions regarding the use of "about:blank" and seeing a blank page when Firefox iOS opens. There really was not a solution provided. I've a work around for the time being and would like to know if anyone else has a better solution because "about:blank" has been a favorite homepage, Opening Screen, ...etc. Start with the 3 horizontal bars in the bottom right corner. Select {Settings} and {Homepage} is selected, the first setting is [OPENING SCREEN]. Set this to {Homepage}. Scroll down to [CURRENT HOMEPAGE] and type "https://www.blank.org" into {Custom URL}. To save the entry, touch {Firefox Home} just above the entry. The results while not the same as "about:blank" are very similar. If anyone else has a better solution, please post it here. (Please keep any replies positive to we can share ideals and solutions in the common forum.)

It said touch 3 dots, there are not three dots to touch. I justtouch Passwords and it oens for all to be seen. Please help. Thanks.

I would like to tidy up my history. Previously I tried deleting all history, but I lost my website data too (eg cookies/GDPR preferences).

The alternative seems to be to delete each history entry one at a time, but it's slow.

Is there a better way to delete a lot of history without losing cookies? Or to automatically delete old history?

Thanks

I read the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-default-email-program-firefox-ios

My email application is ProtonMail which isn’t listed yet.

I was wondering if anyone knows if there’s a process to request a new app in that list?

Also I know that iOS recently changed to allow setting the system default-maybe this setting was a workaround while the system wide setting wasn’t available. Maybe there’s a place I can go to see if the future of this setting will ultimately include “System default email app”?

Thanks for reading.
