I tapped on a link on a website that directs to an email address while using the Firefox App. Afterwards, Firefox then open and directs me to the Mail app. I was wondering if that happens, does Firefox shares my email address with the website I clicked the link in?

I really don’t find the new start on home page feature useful at all. Quite the opposite, actually. Is there a way to disable this, have I missed something?

Firefox gets ejected out of memory more often than Safari, so I’d like to be able to resume what I was doing as seamlessly as possible and have FF just reload the last open tab on launch. The current behavior opens a new tab that I didn’t ask for, and when I close it, it takes me all the way back to the first tab, which is still not something I want. This strikes me as a stunningly poor design. Is it just me? Am I doing it wrong?

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.

Every time I open Firefox on any device (I have 3 I use daily) the program automatically opens a new tab. I have set tabs that automatically open, different for each device. I ONLY want those to open. I’m tired of closing the new tabs each time I open Firefox. I cannot find the setting to stop this. Suggestions??

When navigating to ‘send feedback’ in the app, one gets dropped at the support page (not even in the usual Firefox environment, but more of a Safari-style one), with no obvious way to actually send feedback. This is very confusing. When sending feedback, there should be a straightforward form, not a homepage of a forum where one has to register and it is not obvious at all at first how to actually send the feedback.

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!

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.

I set up Firefox on my phone but did NOT have my PC handy at the time. I set up sync which NOW, in retrospect, seems to have been a MAJOR mistake. Now when I try to pair my PC and phone, I am told to go to my phone and start sync (which is ALREADY started) and select camera (which is NOT present--probably because sync is already started). I have tried sms sync but it will NOT accept my phone number, even with the country code. I have come to an impasse here and have no idea where to turn. With about 50 bazillion threads on common sync issues I cannot find anybody with this particular problem in the threads, so please do not flame me if the thread already exists... I just could find nothing on it. (though as soon as I submit, I probably will find it--that is the way it always works with me...) So... the question is... How do I convince my phone's firefox browser that it needs to pair with my PC's firefox browser, given that I have no options for it in the current sync setting?
