I'm using Version 19.1 (16203) of Firefox on my iPhone XR. For the last few weeks (after updates to IOS), I've lost the ability to select text by tapping on the browser screen. It either doesn't respond or pops up a screen that gives options as if I've tapped on a URL (photo attached). I can copy the URL and open it in Safari or Chrome on the same phone and have no problem selecting text. Firefox is my favorite browser and I'd rather not go back to using Chrome. Is this a way to overcome this bug/feature?

Images: minimum zoom is forced to "fit" screen size making scaling inflexible

Sometimes, when viewing an image (e.g. a raw .png file, not a web page), and especially in landscape mode, the automatic "fit to screen" scaling that Firefox iOS forces is frustrating. If I am viewing an image that I want to stay on screen (in my case a chord progression for a musical piece), I can zoom out so that it fits on screen, but if the horizontal width is not maxed out, firefox will force the zoom to fill the screen width, thus clipping the top and bottom of the image. Very annoying.

Any way around that?

Using Firefox v21.0 on iPhone 6 Plus with IOS 12.4.4 the app opens, turns screen white then black and closes after 10 seconds. This has been happening on and off for months and is now permanent.

Safari and Brave both work. Is this a sync problem?

Relatively recently, I've started to notice that FireFox on my iPad, iPhone and MacBook keep on asking me to sign into my account - which I already have multiple times over and over again, while also having to input the security code I get to my email. This is abnormal and I've already invested more time in reading emails, inputting code, typing in my credentials than writing this whole post. Is this a bug? How do I fix this?

iPad7 OS13.3 with keyboard why have to tap address bar when open new blank tab vs. just start typing?

Found a previous poster's Question & Solutions re: if this is an "intended" protocol, but solution DOES NOT apply to Firefox-iPad--just to Mac computers. I have to manually engage address bar by tapping it before I can type-in or paste into New tab's address bar vs just pasting or typing immediately onto address bar on New tab, as can do on my Lenovo Computer's Firefox and Safari on this iPad. Thinking, due to past experience, I must be techno-ignorant in this situation, too. So, I am hoping someone here can enlighten me. Metaphor,"SURFING THE WEB" just occurred to me. Having to manually engage address bar in new tab is like having to get off your surf board mid-smooth gliding-wave-surf, paddle back out and find another wave--kills the flow; chops-up the flow-experience. If it is not me ignorance causing this issue and it is a glitch in the Firefox iPad 7/OS13.3.1--where do I go to let Firefox know it would be great if they could tweak it? Thanks very much
