My tabs keep crashing and every time I reopen Firefox I have to reclick all tabs, public and private. Last week, I had to delete the app because nothing worked. But since I reinstalled it, I have had to constantly reclick all tabs both public and private at least 5 times a day because it disappears.

I ALWAYS use FF in incognito mode. I do not ever switch to non incognito. However, after closing FF (iphone14 pro max, all fully updated) for a couple of hours, when I open, it’s magically back on NONincognito mode.

Also, when in incognito mode, FF still keeps cookies after I have deleted them and cleared caches.

Firefox crashed on iOS version 115.1 (32781) and tab restore did not work, lost hundreds of tabs

Firefox on iOS crashed when I toggles the inactive tabs button on and off and I had about 48 tabs as well 300 + private tabs open for years and when I clicked on the restore tabs button, it did not work and nothing came back. Can you please help me restore the session? I really need those private tabs back so I can save them accordingly. The history is there for the normal tabs but the private ones are the ones I really need back. I just need to be able to restore that session. I can provide log files as needed. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

hi

i use the ios firefox app on iphone 13 ios 16.5.1

the firefox app used to open automatically where it was left off for example if i had closed it while in view mode of all the private tabs and reopend it would still be there in private mode with all tabs in view.

it no longer does this instead it always opens on the standard browsing mode. it also only opens links from other apps in standard browsing mode too now when i open them in the app.

i noticed this start happening maybe a few weeks ago not sure exactly when. i dont think it was a change in my settings because i searched them all for something like this and recall it always being the previous way where it would stay in private mode after being closed.

does anyone know how to fix this or experienced the same?

thanks

Firefox not function properly after recent update iPhone 12 mini

Since the most recent update, Firefox now does not close the private tabs on app closure as it should even though the button to say delete this is actually active.

Also, when listening to music through Soundcloud or Bandcamp or YouTube, even after the tab with the music is closed, the music continues to play. This has all started today and is highly frustrating. As is trying to find this feedback page! 45 minutes into trying to “get help” I finally found somewhere to write this problem out. (Though I doubt Mozilla are interested in fixing the issue, judging by the complete lack of customer support and their labyrinthine Help section which I have to say is NOT in any way helpful, just needlessly stressful).

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??

On FF on my iphone, I can open multiple tabs in the privacy tab, go back to the normal tabs, and all the privacy tabs remain to check later. On my ipad however if I go back to the normal tabs, all of the privacy tabs are gone. I rarely need to close them all immediately, but often do want to go back to them, just keeping them saved for later.

It would be nice if the ipad was like the iphone in not immediately closing all tabs, though still keeping them locked away.
