You should make it so you have to opt to turn in on.

It used to be that when I typed in the beginning of a URL, Firefox would suggest a massive list of matching URLs from my history that would slowly dwindle as I typed more, but now I get only three suggestions.

I didn't change anything, so is this a change in Firefox? If so, can it be changed back? Or made an option?

Hello,

I am having an issue where my Firefox is displaying suggestions from sites I have visited only ever in private browsing mode. When I type a letter with this site, it appears as a “Firefox Suggested” search, not a Google search which I have already disabled. I have cleared my history, cleared my cache, reinstalled, done the same on all my devices, ensured I have no bookmarks or any remnants of the site visited, yet they remain visible on my phone. I am on Firefox for IOS, my IOS and Firefox are updated to the latest edition as of 04/11/2024. I am ensure what to do, as I really can’t allow this. Is there a way to turn this off, or is my only option to just switch back to Safari for the time being? Please let me know, as I need this turned off or to figure out how to clear this specific suggestion despite it being nowhere in my history, bookmarks, cache, downloads, or anywhere else.

I am using Firefox 124.2 (40108) on my iPhone with iOS 16.7.7 (20H330) and using DuckDuckGo as the default search engine. Loading settings with their Cloud Save service does not work as expected: the settings reset each time you restart the app.

How to get DuckDuckGo settings to persist across sessions in the app?

Recently on my older iPad (5th generation) whenever I do an image search and click on a highlighted image (any highlighted image) or the corresponding thumbnail link, doing so always and only results in a blank page. If however, I choose the option to open the image in a new tab, then and only then does the search go to the desired site. All the other search options seem to work fine.

I have cleared my caches and deleted my histories to no avail. Removing and reinstalling Firefox did not help. Rebooting didn’t do it either. Have I caught a malware that my antivirus protection has failed to detect? Is it a bug in the app?

I’m stumped.

I regularily go to "https://www.desmos.com/calculator", however when I type in "des..." to firefox it autocompletes to "https://www.desmos.com" which I don't want, and then need to do a few extra clicks to get the "/calculator". Is there any way to manually change what will show up? I never want to go to "https://www.desmos.com", and only want "https://www.desmos.com/calculator". I have similar issues around websites I use incredibly rarely, strangely coming up as top suggestions for autocomplete.

Any else seeing this lately?

1. **Navigation Issues**: Firefox fails to correctly navigate forwards or backwards through browser history. It often does not load the intended previous page, skips pages, or refuses to load a page entirely, requiring the user to close all tabs and manually re-enter the URL.

2. **Loading Issues with External Links**: When opening links from external applications (e.g., email clients), Firefox frequently fails to load the expected webpage. Sometimes, it does not load any page, or it loads to a blank or the home page despite the URL being visible and highlighted in the address bar.

Hello team,

After the latest update, which happened today, the address bar got so narrow that not only can I not see the address I am browsing, but I can’t type a new address either, because the reader view or certificate info buttons are too close to one another (see attached image).

I hope this can be addressed soon. Browsing has become much of a hassle now.

Thanks,

Hi community,

Hopefully, someone can help me with this strange issue:

I've installed Firefox for iOS (iPhone) and would like to add DuckDuckGo as my default search engine but there seems to be an issue with the query string as shown on this support page.

When entering DDG to the list in Settings using the suggested query string "https://www.duckduckgo.com/search?q=%s", every search in the URL text field (in this case "vin") sends me to the DDG start page where my string is changed to "search" in the search field (see image) and below with a bunch of search engines. Then I have to enter my initial search string one more time.

Hopefully, this explanation makes sense.

What can I do? Any help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Peter

Hello! I’m trying out the whole AI search engine thingy with You.com but i wanna use firefox rather than the IOS app that they provide. I’ve already set You as the default search engine and that all works when I’m searching from within Firefox. But when using the IOS Spotlight search thingy, e.g the search thing that IOS app then pressing the firefox icon with my search, it simply searches with google instead of You.com.

Is there a fix for this?

How is it possible that such a glaring design error still exists after so many have asked for so long?

And to those commenting completely incorrect and unhelpful steps that lead to menus that don’t exist in the settings, WHY?

I’m bout to go back to safari. I love everything Firefox stands for but this is such a glaring oversight I can’t help but wonder what else is being missed.

Hi, thanks in advance for the help.

My case is simple but I have no ideia the WHY is happening. I use google as a search engine but after a few days, it changes automatically to Yahoo (wich i dont like) and i have to go to preferences and change it back to google. This has been repeating for a few months and I'm a bit fed up of it, so, is there any way to keep google permamently?

Also it is curious that if I restore the default seach engines, it does not appear yahoo, and even if i delete all, and only keep google, keeps on happening again.

I'm an apple user and I also have Firefox since forever on the Iphone and Ipad too and no problem with this ones.

Again, thanks
