Firefox for iOS keeps requiring login on Google.com for search

Hello, for weeks now, upon doing Google searches using Firefox for iOS, I have been prompted to log in to my Google account, even though I was already logged in before and did not log out. It's not just to the extent that every time I start a new browser session and do a search, I have to log in -- I just navigate away from the app to another one and return, and I'm prompted to log in again even though I didn't quit the browser.

I've already searched for solutions to this problem and found the suggestions to clear browser cache, which I did, and to make sure cookies are enabled ... which I can't seem to do because I cannot find any such setting in the Firefox app settings itself, or in my phone's system settings under "Firefox".

I also realize this might be an issue with Google or my phone itself.

I'm using an iPhone 11 running iOS 17.2.1 and my Firefox app is up to date.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I'm using Firefox on iOS along with the Bitwarden app for password management. I've noticed that Chrome and Safari display Bitwarden suggestions for password autofill directly in the toolbar, but Firefox does not. Is this due to my settings, or could it be an unfixed bug with Firefox on iOS? Has anyone else encountered this issue or knows if it's being addressed?

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

I am having an issue sending a tab to another device from the Actions menu on IOS. I used to be able to click the Firefox icon and it would give me the options to: Open, Load, Bookmark, add to reading and send to Device. When I select "Send to Device" it says "You don't have any other devices connected to this account available to sync.

It is worth noting that if i am in firefox i CAN send tabs and all the available devices show up. This issue is ONLY from the action button which I use quite a bit to send stuff to my desktop to read later.

iOS share menu “send to device” shows “you don’t have any other devices connected to this account available to sync”

Recently (since iOS update to 17.3 perhaps?) the share menu from other apps does not show any of my other devices for me to send tabs to.

If I use the share menu to open in Firefox, then use the “send link to device” option there, the expected available devices do show up, and the send action does work (causes tabs to open on those other devices) when I choose them.

This is a recent regression. I want to be able to keep using Firefox on my desktop browser’s despite using a different browser on iOS, and a more cumbersome tab ingestion makes me less likely to continue doing that.

Ever since my IPad updated to iOS 17 I have had issues with Firefox crashing. I currently have iOS17.2 which fixed some other issues but not this issue. When it crashes and I go back in it will ask if I want to restore tabs, if I say no, then I get a new clean tab. However, the next time it crashes (which it will) and it asks to restore tabs, it restores tabs from the first time it crashed, not the current tabs I was on. I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox but it still crashes. And when I say it crashes it does it extensively, every time I go on Firefox. I’m sorry I don’t know the version of Firefox I have nor the operating system.

Hello everyone,

I'm encountering a persistent problem with my website when accessed via Firefox for iOS. The issue seems to be causing frequent crashes or instability when users attempt to navigate certain pages or perform specific actions.

Here are the details of the problem:

Browser: Firefox for iOS Devices tested: iPhone X, iPhone 11, iPad Air 4th Gen Issue: The website crashes intermittently when users perform actions like [specific actions causing crashes, e.g., filling out forms, clicking certain buttons, loading specific pages]. Frequency: The crashes occur frequently enough to hinder the user experience, impacting our site's usability. I have checked the website on other browsers and devices, and it seems to function correctly without any crashes. This leads me to believe that there might be an issue specific to Firefox for iOS.

I've ensured that the website's code is compliant with web standards and optimized for various browsers. However, I'm unsure why this problem persists solely on Firefox for iOS.

I'm reaching out to the community to seek advice, suggestions, or any similar experiences you might have encountered. I'm open to debugging suggestions, potential workarounds, or any insights that could help resolve this issue and provide a smoother experience for Firefox for iOS users.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

‘Pay with PayPal’ functionality on websites is broken for me and has been across updates of both Firefox and iPadOS for as long as I can remember at this point. I’m using an iPadPro running iOS 16.7.2 with Firefox for iOS version 120.4 (36613). When I’m checking out at e-commerce sites (e.g., J Crew), and I click on the PayPal button when selecting a form of payment, a new tab opens, but it’s literally blank — nothing even tries to connect or load. This happens across e-commerce sites. It doesn’t happen with Firefox on my PC/Windows laptop or on my iPad with other browsers (Chrome, Safari). I have tried everything that I can uninstall/reinstall, deactivate, or toggle, and nothing seems to fix this. I have cross-site tracking disabled in iOS. Some people have suggested that websites are not fully supporting Firefox any longer or that there is a problem with Firefox and Apple’s proprietary rendering engine. I’m really at the end of my wits about this. After having used Firefox faithfully since Netscape disappeared, I’m honestly on the verge of giving up. Please help.

Firefox has become basically unusable since the iOS 17.1.2 update. Everything is extremely slow — opening a tab, selecting the address bar, waiting for keyboard to load, typing, loading results etc. Only after the wait at each step to load a web page does it become navigable as long as I stay there and don’t leave to return later. I’m on latest version in app store. Been a Firefox user since my first smartphone and beyond that on a PC. I prefer Firefox, but I downloaded the DuckDuckGo browser just to have something responsive for basic web searches. Please help.

Hello. I have firefox for Ipad. IOS 17.2. The issue I am having is that I would like to save a website shortcut to my home screen like I normally do with Safari. When using Firefox, once I'm on the site I want to "Add to Home Screen," I go to the share menu and this option doesn't appear. Other options such as print..etc do, but not ADD TO HOME SCREEN.

Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
