"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!

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

Does Firefox have an app, setting, or a different browser than Firefox in Private Browsing mode that allows me not to be tracked and having no or minimal ads while surfing? Firefox in Private Browsing mode has too many ads taking up a lot of space on my smartphone’s screen. I don’t want to have loads of cookies, and web caches after surfing, and don’t want to have to delete unknown cookies on my phone. I have tried Duck Duck Go, Safari with Adguard, Ghostery, Firefox in Private Browsing mode, etc on my iPhone, but still have tons of cookies and web caches, plus unknown cookies on the phone web history.

Thank you very much in advance!

This app replaces my text as I have it set up on my iPhone 13,iOS 15.5, but it does it automatically unlike all my other browser apps which show the text replacement as an option I can tap or X out of it if I don’t want. It’s impossible for me to type in a search query without the automatic text replacement filling and making it impossible for me to type in my search query. In other words I can’t get past the automatic text replacing in the field, which makes it impossible to do a search. Ive looked everywhere on the app and my iPhone for a specific setting to turn off, but can’t find it, if it exits? Help!

I am using Firefox for iOS.

I am trying to delete website data and the “show more” option only allows me to choose one site. I have to continue to click on show more to choose more website data to delete.

When I do not use the “show more” option, I can only delete about 10 at a time. If I choose not to delete a website, then it will remain as part of the ten options. For example, if I choose not to delete 3 websites, then every time it loads new data, I really only have 7 to delete (because I want to keep the first 3). It takes forever to get through all of the website data listed.

If the “show more” drop down list would stay visible after choosing a website, it would go a lot faster.

I don’t want to delete everything. Isn’t there a faster way to do this?

Hi. I love firefox and have been using the app for the last 5 years.. I generally use the same firefox account on all my devices (laptop, android and iOS) and love the pocket recommendations on the homepage. I tried enabling it on my iOS device (iPhone 13 pro) but it’s not showing even when it’s turned on!! I reinstalled the app several times and enabled it to see if that fixes the issue but it’s still not resolved. Kindly help me with this because one of the main reasons why I’m using firefox is because of the pocket recommendations!!

Cheers!
