I either have some malware or a bug on my iPhone that only affects my Mozilla account. I will open a tab then try to go back to that tab later and it looks like the pic below with just an “L” in the upper left corner of the tab and when I open it there is nothing there. I’ve cleared my browser hx and even restarted my iPhone several times to try and fix the problem but it’s still there. Any help with how to get rid of this?

In the image attached, I’m trying to scroll through the search suggestions given by “Firefox Suggest”. However, when I try to swipe up in the red circled area, instead of scrolling down, I only click on the page shown in the red circled area. This behavior is new and was not always there. I could previously scroll down while swiping up in the red-circled area. Also, in the red-circled area, it looks like there is a longer list of "Firefox Suggest" options that the keyboard is covering, but I can't get access to this longer list because I can't swipe up. What should I do to fix this?

Hello

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this, but it’s regarding something you should know. When I first started working on a computer full time I choose Firefox as my browser. The reason being that I thought working on a computer shouldn’t be just entry work. I thought it should be somewhat fun as well.

Now I think my first version of Firefox was around ver. 15. With that one I could change the whole look of the browser to make it more fun, it offered many very useful add ons, and it was a very fast and reliable browser. Because of this when I had to choose an email client I chose Thunderbird, because it had many of the same fun options.

So I worked on a computer for 10 years and I think by that time Firefox was somewhere North of ver. 60. I think due to all of the improvements in speed and security I couldn’t dress it up like the earlier models, but you could change the banner at the top which was neat, and almost all of the add ons had been constantly updated my the developers so I never had to delete a single one. Plus things were continually being added to the browser itself, so all in all I was never dissatisfied with it and recommended it to anyone looking for a browser to use on their computer.

Unfortunately I no longer work or have a computer and I am forced to do everything on an iPad. Naturally my first choice for a browser was Firefox. Of course I can’t do the fun things with this mobile browser, which I accepted because it did pretty much everything else just as it should. Until it started going downhill. Now, your mobile browser is, in a word, awful. Here are just a few of the problems it now has:

1. Web pages. When I first started using it a web page would be there until I closed it. No matter how many pages were open. Now, even if I have only two or three pages open, I close Firefox down and launch it again, the tabs are there showing what pages were open, but no URLs, and thus no pages. Everything is blank. 2. Speed. Our wi-fi has speeds ranging from 100Mpbs to 300Mpbs for downloads. But lately, some of those very same pages, well, let’s just say I could go and get a cup of coffee and they’d still be loading. 3. Logins. This is the worst issue. I must have logged into at least two dozen sites in Firefox and you know how many logins it saved? Two. Totally unacceptable! I don’t have the time or patience to continually look up login info that Firefox should have saved. It doesn’t even ask if I want to save that info.

So, I have kept Firefox on my iPad, and I will check every once in a while to see if there have been any improvements. But, until then, Google has become my default browser. It’s rather sad when the people who make the basic engine for the TOR browser, the world’s most private browser, can’t make a mobile browser that works properly.

So, until later Greg

Just updated Firefox to version 112.2 on my iPad which has iOS 15 Did the update via the apple App Store. Relaunched (restarted) Firefox and ALL tabs that were open are Gone! I can’t find the “restore previous session” option anywhere.

Can you tell me where to find it? How do I get the previous session back?!?

I’ve been using Firefox for years. Firefox not starting up after the update with all the previous tabs open is devastating to me. I need to get the previous session restored. Please help

Phone and Firefox up to date. This is NOT immediately after iOS update nor after a Firefox update. I have settings confirmed that should keep me in private browsing. Triple checked this. Even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and reestablished proper settings.

I’ll be browsing in a private browser, will re-open Firefox and SOMETIMES, not always, I’ll be in a non-private browser.

What gives??

Procedure 1. Open Firefox iOS 2. Open some pages 3. Force-close the app 4. Open Firefox again

Expected result - The tabs that previously opened is kept and possible to access

Actual result - The tabs exists, but displaying default new tab page, cannot visit the page - pageback/forward is not working - All tabs are affected

note - By pressing down pageback/forward, there is history which says "internal://local/sessionstore?url=..." is generated. - There are some people on my local app store (JP) complaining the same issue. - After erasing and reinstalling the app, this issue happened again.

The app is almost unusable because of this bug.

Hey Folks,

I got a problem using Mozilla Firefox with iPadOS on my Apple iPad Pro 12,9 M1 with Apple Magic Keyboard.

The problem is about the “right click“ on a link on a page, it’s intermittent, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. If I open a page and want to open a link in a new tab, I tap the link with two fingers or with one finger and control. When it doesn’t work, at first I got to long tap the link on the touchscreen to show the right click menu to open the link in a new tab. After this procedure I can use the two fingers tap or control tap to open the right click menu.

I hope you can give me some clues to resolve the problem.

Thank you,

Since the latest update I cannot access at least one site P&O cruises nz, the site comes up but is not the correct site. I was getting an error message about Norton security and the url being too long, for that and other sites. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it, but still cannot access the correct site. I no longer get the error message, but the site is incorrect. If I use safari it comes up with the correct site.

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.
