For the past few weeks, every link I click across all apps other than Firefox (which is set as the default browser on my phone) opens in private browsing mode. Even if Firefox is open and currently in regular browsing mode, the link opens as private. The only time it does not do this is if, in Firefox normal browsing, I click a link - then it opens in a new tab in normal mode.

I've read the Private Browsing on Firefox for Android. It's not helpful because iOS does not have the option to always open links in private browsing.

Is there anyway to get the bookmarks back on the homepage for iOS and if not can it please get added back. I really like this app but it feels like every update removes a function or adds something that makes life more painful.

I have a brand new Macbook Air running 12.5 OS and have reinstalled Firefox which means I should have the latest version (103.0.1) but some YouTube videos do not play (this happened when it was running 103.0 Firefox but did not resolve after updating). It's currently happening with this one, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQqTN4Tz-r4

The same videos play on my older Macbook Air without doing this white circle cycling thing but not playing as is happening on my new laptop, so it's not a wireless issue. I have cleared my cache but it is not helping. Sometimes that helps but often not, as in the case above. Additionally, I have to clear my cache every other day or so, which is very unusual and inconsistent with my older Macbook Air which is running 10.12.6 OS and 103.0 Firefox. Clearly something is different with the new laptop but it's only with Firefox and not with Chrome.

When viewing a pdf file in Firefox on my iPhone, there are problems with using the Share function. If you Share by Airdrop or email, the file is not sent properly and is not readable on the receiving device. If you select Print from the Share menu, nothing happens. That is, nothing happens most of the time - it did work once for me.

Non PDF web pages seem to work OK with the Share function, but not PDFs.

This problem has been around for a while, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345931, seems like time for Mozilla to fix it!

After a recent Firefox update, my Bookmarks on my laptop browser disappeared. I have all my Bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I Sync FROM my iPhone so I can put my Bookmarks back on my laptop browser? I don't want to Sync onto my iPhone because that would erase all my Bookmarks.

Are my Bookmarks saved anywhere that I can access them?

Is there a way to reach Firefox support directly?

The Firefox app on my iphone11PRO does not retain history of sites visited. When I go to settings and click on History, there is an icon with a folder that says Recently Closed. Below that, there is the notation "Websites you've visited recently will show up here." BUT... Nothing is there. When I look at Homepage, "Recently saved" and Recently Visited" are both turned on. What am I missing?
