Every time I try to add a search engine (the one I’m trying now is “wiki.pokemoncentral.it”) Firefox on my 6th generation iPad with iPadOS 15.6 (latest version) crashes, and it does that even with my iPhone Xr. I don’t know what to do, I think it’s a bug or something like that. Please Mozilla, if there isn’t any solution I can do, fix it.

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.

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. I have been using Chrome for years and have lots of bookmarks and passwords and such that I want to transfer over. The thing is, I do not typically use a desktop; I use my iOS mobile devices. Is there a way to transfer my bookmarks in the app? Or am I required to use a desktop to complete this?

I had >= 25 tabs open from yesterday. I wanted a clean slate today.

I do NOT want to sync. I do NOT want to "pick up where I left off". I only a few bookmarks to be handy.

Deleting and reinstalling the app is an inconvenient workaround because I have to look up my Apple password each time, although I guess I could stick it to the back of my iPad. ;-)

I am on v100 on iOS (iPad and iPhone). I noticed that in the Recently Visited list on a homepage I can see history from my private browsing included. It's really worrying as I don't see those items in the browsing history.

Neither using the QR code option or the email option work. Both result in a white screen.

By using the iPhone's camera to scan the QR code (instead of using Firefox) I can see that the QR code is point to https://mzl.la/MYCODE. This URL in turn is redirecting to https://app.adjust.com/somecode?campaign=firefox-desktop&adgroup=firefoxview&creative=CODE-123. Opening this URL in Safari gives me a white page with a "Download App" button to download Firefox (which I already have installed).

My Firefox account has the setting "Allow ⁨Firefox Accounts⁩ to send technical and interaction data to ⁨Mozilla⁩." set to off. So probably none of this tracking should occur.

In any case, I went to Firefox settings and turned on "Allow Cross-Website Tracking". I also went to Safari settings and turned off "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking", "Privacy Preserving Ad Measurement" and turned "Content Blockers".

Then I tried syncing again. The result was the same white page as before.

Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

Hello all,

As the subject suggests, I’m trying to figure out how I can recover about 180 tabs I lost while the inactive tabs setting was enabled. I don’t remember Firefox crashing - I just noticed a few days ago that all my inactive tabs were gone and have since been trying to find a way to recover them, with no success.

Which is why I’m here. Is there a way to access Firefox’s iOS files? From my research, I’m thinking it’s possible info on tabs might still be stored somewhere in those files.

Thanks in advance!

I'm trying my best to use firefox on ios but I cannot find the very important function called "clear cookies and site data". On desktop version there's a lock icon and then "enchanced tracking protection" but where is a function to clear current site cookies?

Also where is the option (as it is on desktop) to block all third party cookies in the settings... (as on the desktop version)?

I am traveling in Europe (Denmark) and at some point the language on my Firefox browser suddenly changed from English to Danish--even on websites that I've marked as favorites. I've looked through my preferences settings and see nothing that relates to this.

Can someone help please? (As much as I'd love to, I don't yet read or speak Danish...)

Thanks.

Recently, I switched to Edge on iOS while I am searching for a browser with adBlock function implemented. Safari with the extensions does not really block all the ads on some websites, especially the shady ones. Edge is able to block the ads with Adblock Plus integrated in their setting. It basically works all the time, but sometimes it blocks the video sources too, but no worries there is a whitelist you can manually add.

Is it possible for Firefox iOS to add this kind of adBlocker in the app? I hope so because I really like Ff desktop and Android, but I had to use iOS.

Hi!

I have installed DuckDuckGo as search engine in FF for iOS.

Everytime I enter a search phrase and hit search, I get a new page with the word search in the URL/search field.

Then I must delete the word search and enter my search phrase a second time, hit enter/search and then it works fine.

How do I get rid of the word ”search” that appears every time I open the search engine and want to search for something using DDG in FF?

If I open the DDG app on my iphone I don’t experience this issue. I just enter a search phrase and do a search just like on any other search engine I’ve used.

I attached pics, the first is the start page, the second is whereI did a test search for the word ”walnut” and the third is the result I get, search engine page with the word search?

I hope this helps you understand my issue!?

With kind regards
