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?

Hey Together

I have an Ipad Air 4.Gen

Now I want to download a file (SRT), the link works, from Safari I can also download it (same website, but not possible here, otherwise loss of work). Stupid thing is that I was working on something for quite a long time, but did this on the Firedox broweser, now the download works but nicher. There is this very short loading bar (blue line), but this is already gone after about 0.5 seconds.

Under downloads I can't find anything in the files or in the download menu of Firefox.

I noticed that Firefox has no access to the files (the app from Apple), but Safari does. However, I can't activate it because there is no "slider" (activation thingy) for it.

How can I solve this problem? Thanks for your answer.

Is there a way to put favorite bookmarks as the starting page for a new tab?

I feel like most browsers let you chose that any new tab you open will be either blank, a specific page, or your favorite bookmarks, but I haven’t figured out how to do t… (read more)

I feel like most browsers let you chose that any new tab you open will be either blank, a specific page, or your favorite bookmarks, but I haven’t figured out how to do this in Firefox yet. It’s very annoying, and if it’s not a functionality yet I hope they will add it soon. It’s been around for ages in other browsers, I can’t believe it doesn’t seem to be a choice in Firefox?

If I send tab to my ipad (ios v12.5.5) from my PC (win 10), it wont arrive on my ipad. I can send tabs from my ipad to my PC or iphone and all work fine. PC to iphone (ios 15.5) or iphone to ipad, again all work. It's only PC to iPad. In fact, I send tabs back & forth from 2 laptops, 2 PCs & iphone and all work fine just PC to ipad

I have notifications on, have signed out of all devices & signed back in, removed devices from sync and re-entered, I have deleted Firefox on ipad and PC, cleared cache & cookies on ipad &PC, still the same issue.

Is it an ios 12.5 issue which is the latest version I can install?

I've seen this asked (and unanswered) previously.

Since there is an option, I want to know what this is. Does that mean all the rest of the stuff in the cache is public? ' What sort of stuff is in private data? Why do I want to (or not want to delete it.)?

I haven't seen this before and haven't seen it on the OSX Version.

- and that works for me on my Windows 10 system; but More Tools does not appear when I click the menu button on my iPad mini.

Am running 102.0 64-bit on Windows system; not sure about iPad, but just installed it today. It seems to be running fine on the iPad mini otherwise. How can I reach the Customize Toolbar pane on it?
