At one point this used to work, but it seems to have stopped working recently.

I use the Send to Device feature frequently, but certain share combos don't seem to work at all.

What works:

  • iOS Firefox to desktop
  • iOS Safari to desktop
  • iOS Edge to desktop
  • Some random iOS apps (IMDB, Amazon) to desktop
  • Desktop Firefox to iOS Firefox

What doesn't work:

  • iOS Twitter to desktop
  • iOS Facebook to desktop
  • iOS Reddit to desktop
  • iOS Google Chrome to desktop
  • iOS Yelp to desktop

I'm on Firefox 76.0.1 (Windows 10) and iOS 13.5.

Deal community, is there a way to prevent Firefox from showing Bookmarks in the address Bar when typing certain letters? I‘ve already turned off the autofill function, but that won‘t work. Deleting the recent browsing history won‘t work either.

We have Yahoo Mail set up on our iMac to keep us 'signed in' for 2 weeks (the maximum allowed by Yahoo Mail). When the latest 2 week period expired a few days ago, we were prompted to 'sign in' again, which we did. But, a blank screen appears and our emails are not visible. We've tried this multiple times and have even re-started Firefox, to no avail. We are able to access our emails on our iOS portable devices and using Safari on our iMac, so we believe that the problem isn't with Yahoo Mail. Any suggestions!?

I am a web developer for a state agency and was having a bit of an issue with getting Firefox for iOS to work with our current get location code. Most of the other browsers work with the following, including Firefox desktop and Firefox Mobile.

Is there something different about iOS that I am missing. On the JS fiddle the console.log runs, but it just stops after that.

Any help would be appreciated? or being able to access the console.log in the iOS browser as well?

Thank you, Peter Ottenbacher [email]

function Geolocate() {

       console.log("getting location");
       //check if the geolocation object is supported, if so get position
       if (navigator.geolocation) {
           navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(displayLocation, displayError);                
    
       } else {
           alert("Sorry - your browser doesn't support geolocation!");
       }
   }

I’ll do my best to keep this short. I’m a windows/Linux user with a new work iPad. Trying to print from Firefox, I have no print options in my menu. Also cannot print with keyboard shortcuts. To verify printing capabilities from the iPad, I tried with Chrome. Both keyboard shortcuts, and printing from the browser menu are functioning. What am I missing with Firefox?

Thank you for al the support - such great people helping out with Firefox!

After syncing my open tabs in my devices, I need to send back the old iPhone(6s) after now updating the newer iPhone10r.

Once I zero out the older phone (to send it back to the service provider), will the newer one lose the synced tabs (from the 6s or will they be retained?
