Aside from poor performance and often inability to load web pages, will Firefox ever work reasonably on iOS? I just "upgraded" to 108, and it immediately broke. Opening to homepage resulted in instant crash. Have seen this behavior on earlier versions when accessing history, bookmarks, etc., but now it's homepage. I.e., the browser is absolutely useless unless opened directly from some other app. Since this happens so often, I'm thinking that "upgrades" should be avoided. This time, I had to delete the app and re-install it, which lost all bookmarks, etc., and it still crashed numerous times when trying to access bookmarks and some of settings. This is a most annoying and unsatisfactory app, and I don't want to spend my time trying to make it work. BTW, I'm writing this from Ubuntu, so that at least I can enter the complaint.

The last few weeks, Firefox for IPad has become so slow that I’ve moved to Chrome. Many people are complaining of this on Reddit. It’s only on the IPad. You can uninstall and reinstall as many times as you want or do a Force restart of the IPad and it makes no difference. What is wrong?

Image with error attached below. FFox 107.0 (21907)

When I press the "Home" button/icon in FFox for IOS to go to the startup page I am getting an error message "The URL can't be shown / WebKitErrorDomain".

I believe this is an evolution of the error I reported here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1397009 However, it looks like there's been a FFox update in the last day (If I recall the version number correctly from the last one) and the error has changed.

Reliably reproducing this: - Start FFOX - press a startup page icon to access a site OR enter a URL directly in the address line. Look at one or more pages. - press FFOX "Home" button/icon to get back to FFOX startup screen - error occurs - The URL line when the error occurs is ".enx%20la%20l".

Info: I reported a very similar error here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1397009 about a week ago. A few days ago it cured itself. Then today it started again but with a slightly different URL and a completely different error message. However, the oddball URL tells me the two are closely related.

Recap: - I've been using FFOX for years without issue on this phone. - Everything else including accessing web sites seems to be working normally. - There have been no related configuration changes on my part since the last error but it does look like FFox has updated. I don't know how to see the version number in the previous post so I'm not sure. - There have been no IOS updates on the phone in the last couple months (auto update is off)

The TLD/url (.enx) does not appear to be a valid TLD. It's either something FFox is using internally or perhaps IOS is supplying it (seems unlikely but possible). I do have the usual array of sites on my startup page as icons. None of the sites iconed on the startup page has been changed recently.

If I close the (al)l tabs and/or instead start a new one, I get the startup screen as expected. So there are apparently no network access issues. This is 100% reliable with no delays.

This definitely looks like a BUG to me or an internal issue. Is there a better way to report a bug?

When trying to sign in to Google UK on iOS with Bitwarden I get to the 2FA part and have to open the app Bitwarden to get my 2FA code. When I copy it and try to go back to the login page it closes the page and I can’t enter the 2FA code.

I’ve only managed to login using a different 2FA method.

I’m unsure if other websites are affected as I’ve only tried Google UK.

Firefox used to work fine for me on iOs. At some point, pages stopped loading at all: the progress bar would make it to just under the (crossed-out) lock symbol on the left side of the address bar, and just stop there (but still flash). This happens for every website. All the other browsers work fine (DuckDuckGo, Chrome, Safari, etc.) - only Firefox does this.

I've tried clearing my data and restarting Firefox, but neither strategy works.

Dear People,

On one particular site "emp.money" a "Launch Dapp" pop-up keeps reappearing every time I go to the site. It's supposed to disappear after the first time I agree to the terms but it doesn't. I have to agree to the terms in the pop-up every time before it lets me into the site.

I'm at a loss. I don't know how to get rid of this pop-up. Please help.

When accessing some articles in BBC News I get the message 'Error 410 Gone'. It sometimes ocurrs when trying to open BBC News itself.

It haapens in all browsers and is intermittent.

I contacted the BBC and they just said sorry and offered no explanation. My DNS settings are 8.8.8.8. & 8.8.4.4
