I am using Firefox 124.2 (40108) on my iPhone with iOS 16.7.7 (20H330) and using DuckDuckGo as the default search engine. Loading settings with their Cloud Save service does not work as expected: the settings reset each time you restart the app.

How to get DuckDuckGo settings to persist across sessions in the app?

Google image search on Firefox keeps resulting in “about:blank”

Recently on my older iPad (5th generation) whenever I do an image search and click on a highlighted image (any highlighted image) or the corresponding thumbnail link, doing so always and only results in a blank page. If however, I choose the option to open the image in a new tab, then and only then does the search go to the desired site. All the other search options seem to work fine.

I have cleared my caches and deleted my histories to no avail. Removing and reinstalling Firefox did not help. Rebooting didn’t do it either. Have I caught a malware that my antivirus protection has failed to detect? Is it a bug in the app?

I’m stumped.

I regularily go to "https://www.desmos.com/calculator", however when I type in "des..." to firefox it autocompletes to "https://www.desmos.com" which I don't want, and then need to do a few extra clicks to get the "/calculator". Is there any way to manually change what will show up? I never want to go to "https://www.desmos.com", and only want "https://www.desmos.com/calculator". I have similar issues around websites I use incredibly rarely, strangely coming up as top suggestions for autocomplete.

Any else seeing this lately?

1. **Navigation Issues**: Firefox fails to correctly navigate forwards or backwards through browser history. It often does not load the intended previous page, skips pages, or refuses to load a page entirely, requiring the user to close all tabs and manually re-enter the URL.

2. **Loading Issues with External Links**: When opening links from external applications (e.g., email clients), Firefox frequently fails to load the expected webpage. Sometimes, it does not load any page, or it loads to a blank or the home page despite the URL being visible and highlighted in the address bar.

Hello team,

After the latest update, which happened today, the address bar got so narrow that not only can I not see the address I am browsing, but I can’t type a new address either, because the reader view or certificate info buttons are too close to one another (see attached image).

I hope this can be addressed soon. Browsing has become much of a hassle now.

Thanks,


JP

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

Firefox has been my default browser, but when I click on a link in an email newsletter, for example, often I get to the Firefox homepage instead of the link. I have to click a second time to get the linked page itself. When I search with Firefox and click on a link, I may get there, but if I try to go back to the search page, the page crashes and I'm taken to the Firefox home page. I fear I will lose my saved passwords if I uninstall and reinstall--is there any alternative?

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

Hello! I’m trying out the whole AI search engine thingy with You.com but i wanna use firefox rather than the IOS app that they provide. I’ve already set You as the default search engine and that all works when I’m searching from within Firefox. But when using the IOS Spotlight search thingy, e.g the search thing that IOS app then pressing the firefox icon with my search, it simply searches with google instead of You.com.

Is there a fix for this?

How is it possible that such a glaring design error still exists after so many have asked for so long?

And to those commenting completely incorrect and unhelpful steps that lead to menus that don’t exist in the settings, WHY?

I’m bout to go back to safari. I love everything Firefox stands for but this is such a glaring oversight I can’t help but wonder what else is being missed.

Hi, thanks in advance for the help.

My case is simple but I have no ideia the WHY is happening. I use google as a search engine but after a few days, it changes automatically to Yahoo (wich i dont like) and i have to go to preferences and change it back to google. This has been repeating for a few months and I'm a bit fed up of it, so, is there any way to keep google permamently?

Also it is curious that if I restore the default seach engines, it does not appear yahoo, and even if i delete all, and only keep google, keeps on happening again.

I'm an apple user and I also have Firefox since forever on the Iphone and Ipad too and no problem with this ones.

Again, thanks

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?

Hello,

I was told to come to this site to report issues with Firefox iOS. I searched this site to see if someone is having a similar issue but didn't find anything.

The issue is simple: I use Firefox on iOS to search Google. I don't want to use the separate Google search app. I like having everything inside Firefox itself. When I initially search for something, the Google search result page loads fine. However, after I use other apps on my phone for while, if I come back to Firefox, then those pages are blank and don't load. I can still see what I searched for in the title of the tab, but the content of the tab is blank and doesn't load even if I press the refresh button. Somehow, this issue MOSTLY happens with the Google search result page, not really with any other website (also I think I've seen this happen with other websites once or twice), which is pretty odd.

I'll try and reproduce it and attach screenshots later.

I’m having difficulty with Firefox on an iPad mini fifth generation running iOS 16.4.1 and today’s version of Firefox. I’ve used Firefox for years with Duck Duck Go as search engine with no problem. Today without warning Firefox stopped accepting URLs typed into the search bar from the Homepage (or any page). It simply ignores the typing and flickers momentarily, keeping the existing URL and page. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, changing the default search engine from Duck Duck Go to Firefox, and changing from a custom homepage to the Firefox homepage. No luck. Please advise.
