Running Firefox ver Daylight 33.0 (4119) for iOS against OS ver 14.4.2 on an iPhone 7. Doesn’t happen all that often, but more and more sites are returning the “unsupported browser” message - even ones that worked previously. I also seem to be unable to access the configuration editor using “about:config” in the iOS version.

Any comments or assistance on this? I at first thought that some vestige of Safari was somehow still being reported to the web sites, but I don’t think that’s true any more. I’m about to set the default over to Chrome (but I don’t really want to for all the privacy issues) to test and stay if it works, but I thought I’d try here first...

Thanks in advance.

I have some trouble using Firefox with my iPad and the Magic Keyboard and don't seem to be the only one: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/kmntpo/extra_tabs_opening_constantly_on_ipad/ghrcbs1/

---

"I have been experiencing an issue on iPad where new empty tabs open up all the time. My iPad is connected to the magic keyboard, and when I open a new tab using cmd-T it open two new tabs instead. When I click links it often opens up new blank tabs. When I conduct searches using the omni search bar it will often open a new tab and conduct the actual search there."

It is exactly the same issue I have. It persists since I use the Magic Keyboard (November 2020) but not, if I use Google Chrome or Safari.

Hi!

I've had reoccuring issues with clicking specific buttons, when I visit websites using Firefox iOS. For some reason it doesn't seem to register the buttons as a link. It seems to specifically affect HTML <button>.

To give an example:

I was filling out an adresse request on Kickstarter, but I was unable to send the required information, because the "Submit" button didn't work.

Is there any way I can fix the issue? At the moment I have to open the webpage in Safari instead.

I have seen this mentioned in 1276222 and 1268881. The first says one person has this problem, the other says two. I am here to add myself to those counts (except I can't figure out how to do that, probably because they are archived).

I spend a lot of time on the Motley Fool discussion boards, very old code. I always start at the same page, https://boards.fool.com/FavoriteBoards.asp?sortby=date. I have 119 "Favorite" boards, and that displays the most recently active boards at the top. On my phone I see less than four "lines" because on my phone screen the wide line wraps around. If I am scrolled down to the 20th entry, that is over five screens to get there.

I click on a board, read it, and hit Back. With the Windows version of Firefox the Back takes me to exactly where I left off. The iOS version USED take me Back to where I left off, but for a while (weeks?) has instead put me back at the top. On my small phone screen that can mean again scrolling down those five screens, and it can be more than that. Often I go Back after no more than ten seconds on the page I opened, and I'm scrolling down and down and down again to get were I was.

It is driving me nuts.

I have attached a screen shot showing four entries, items eight to eleven out of sixteen. That turns out to be three full screens down from the top, though getting there requires more scroll motions that that because my finger reach is less than the max available.

I noticed that when I use the keyboard on my ipad pro (3rd gen with ipadOs 14.3) firefox opens two tabs when pressing on Command+T and sometimes when selecting a link and opening in a new tab.

I tried uninstalling firefox and installing it again but I still have the same issue. Does someone else have the same problem or is it my keyboard/ipad only? Safari doesn’t seem to have this issue.

I’m using Firefox Daylight 37.0 (5971) and after updating to iOS 15, Firefox crashes periodically when pressing the “open tabs” icon at the bottom of the screen. I always use Firefox in private browsing mode, if that is important. Also, now whenever I switch to Firefox from another app, it opens up a fresh tab automatically, forcing me to close it, when all I was trying to do was switch to the app.
