My Firefox on my iPad alsways crashes when I try to select a synched tabs from another Firefox on a different device. The tabs from the other devices show up and the sync is always up to date, but the windows does not react on any interaction, instead the Browser crashes after about 1 minute of inresponsiveness and returns to the home screen of my iPad. I already discenneted and reconnected the Firefox account used for sync on this browser, it did not help. I use the same Firefox version on my iPhone and that does not have this issues, selecting tabs from other devices works as intended.

Firefox version: 114.3 (31916) iPad OS: 16.5.1 (did not work in iPadOS 16.5. either)

I've had this problem of on my iPhone 14 Mac Firefox (now v113.2 where )tabs are taking long to delete and they freeze once I try to. After waiting awhile, anywhere up to 30 seconds or more, they either finally delete, but still slow or the app crashes and that seems to make the deletions fast, like they originally used to be. I've seen that other people seem to have this problem and I just wondered if a solution for this has finally been found?

Thanks in advance to anyone who knows how to fix this...

I had about 500 tabs on FF on my iphone open. The browser crashed and now all of those seem to be gone. "Recently Closed" is empty. Starting the browser just opens an empty page. I had sync turned one but oh magic the synced tabs pretty much immediately diappeared from the other devices as well. Any ideas how I might be able to recover those tabs? Could they still be saved somewhere on the iphone or in the cloud?

Long press > New Tab doesn't restore tabs after Firefox crashes

Hello,

I've told to report technical issues on this website.

I've noticed an issue with Firefox iOS where, if Firefox silently crashes and I open a new tab by doing a long press on the iOS home screen, then selecting New Tab, Firefox only opens that new tab and does not restore the previous session and all previously loaded tabs are gone.

That has happened to me multiple times now and I've had to then try and figure out which tabs I had open by going through the browser history, which is pretty annoying.

To prevent that, I'm pretty much not using the long press > new tab functionality at all anymore and instead I open the app first, then open a new tab. Sometimes, I'll open the app, and if the app crashes, THEN I'm asked if I want to restore the session. Then I have to make sure to not accidentally press NO cause it seems there's no way to get that session back afterwards.

I would suggest a few ideas to prevent this issue: - please offer a setting to auto-restore previous sessions after a crash, instead of asking - alternatively, if pressing NO, or opening a new tab from the homescreen with a long press, offer a way to restore a previous session somewhere on the new tab page

Hello everyone

I'm at a loss. FF for iOS (iPhone 7) keeps crashing every few days (no other apps have similar problems). It then asks to restore tabs from the last session, which mostly works, but every few weeks, all tabs are lost (about 20..50 total). In history menu, open tabs from last session is greyed out. When the tabs are are lost, they're also instantly purged from FF sync. >:(

I'd love to use FF on iPhone, since I'm using FF sync extensively and successfully on multiple PCs. But on iPhone, FF only causes me pain and suffering (i.e. the need to comb through months of history in the hopes of catching all lost tabs). Is there anything I can do that FF on this platform gets more reliable?

It seems, the more connected we get, the more data we lose. :(

Best regards


Björn

  1. Whenever you login a site, Firefox does not remember the cookies from the login. So when you close the app and open it later, so you need to login again.
  1. Firefox crashes a lot since iOS 16 and now too on 16.1, and now also since the release iPadOS 16.1. This makes the app difficult to use and really bad.

Both are very frustrating and important issue, please fix it!

Ever since the new update my Firefox has deleted all my tabs and won’t let me open any urls. I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no changes. The only solution I’ve seen that could work would be sending my log report, yet haven’t found anywhere to post said log. Overall I’m lost at where to solve my problem with my app crashing. For context I’m using an iPhone that’s currently running iOS 14.

Hi everyone,

yesterday I updated the Firefox app on my iPhone and since then it started to close on its own after a few seconds since I start to use it.

I am using an iPhone 13 and the Firefox version installed is 110.2. The behavior is the same as if I would close the app with a gesture (by swiping up the little bar at the bottom of the screen when the app is open). In fact the app is still running in the background, but won't stay open to use it.

Thanks for the support!

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.
