"ios homepage settings" (benisjesus2003 9/13/21, 10:44 AM) and "How to open iOS Firefox on blank home page" (miggy.ad 9/16/21, 5:57 PM), both started discussions regarding the use of "about:blank" and seeing a blank page when Firefox iOS opens. There really was not a solution provided. I've a work around for the time being and would like to know if anyone else has a better solution because "about:blank" has been a favorite homepage, Opening Screen, ...etc. Start with the 3 horizontal bars in the bottom right corner. Select {Settings} and {Homepage} is selected, the first setting is [OPENING SCREEN]. Set this to {Homepage}. Scroll down to [CURRENT HOMEPAGE] and type "https://www.blank.org" into {Custom URL}. To save the entry, touch {Firefox Home} just above the entry. The results while not the same as "about:blank" are very similar. If anyone else has a better solution, please post it here. (Please keep any replies positive to we can share ideals and solutions in the common forum.)

I have Firefox on my iPad, iPhone, and laptop. All three are signed in to the same account and connected. When I add a bookmark on one device it does not automatically sync with the other devices. It only syncs if I do a manual sync on each device. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox on all three. I have signe out of each and signed back in. I have disconnected the three from each and reconnected them. Nothing has fixed it. I would appreciate help if you can offer a solution. Thank you!

I've not been able to send a tab from my computer to Firefox for iOS for a while now. Also, tabs sent from the iOS device to the computer often don't show up until I manually sync the desktop browser a few times.

Troubleshooting steps I've tried: Update the iOS FF app Sign out of sync on the iOS app, Sign back in Check iOS notifications for FF, they're allowed.

I've noticed that it's never been 100% reliable over the past year or so that I've been using "send tab to:" features, but lately it's just not working whatsoever and it's a bummer.

I'll gladly provide any information that can help narrow down the issue, just let me know.

Hey! I found something strange during testing dynamic links on iOS. There is no preview.page.link screen on Firefox after clicking a dynamic link. For comparison I'm attaching a screen from Chrome. Is it possible to somehow solve that on Firefox? This screen doesn't look very UX friendly. Checked that on Safari, Chrome, Brave, Opera and on all of them there is a preview.page.link screen.

Just had an issue with FF for iOS where the view is hiding most of the bottom (task) bar. Turns out that a double three finger tap toggles this behaviour. Screenshot not possible as this shows all the screen area, including what’s obscured. iPhone 7plus iOS 15.6 beta 4 - but was doing this on previous iOS 15 versions too.

Firefox refuses to honor the Last Tab setting under Home Page. It’s checked. But when I switch to another app and then back, it goes to the Firefox homepage instead.

Why is it necessary to authenticate Lockwise frequently on my 2 IOS devices? A dozen times in May and 6 times this month. It happens right when I need to use the app and this activity is delayed by having to authenticate and re-synch. Is something wrong or is this a "feature".

Thanks,

David

I had >= 25 tabs open from yesterday. I wanted a clean slate today.

I do NOT want to sync. I do NOT want to "pick up where I left off". I only a few bookmarks to be handy.

Deleting and reinstalling the app is an inconvenient workaround because I have to look up my Apple password each time, although I guess I could stick it to the back of my iPad. ;-)
