I’ve used Firefox for many years on both my pc and mobile and keep them both up to date and use sync. However recently when using the app and wish to enter my username and password with autofill, after using my phones passkey, I can find the website on my password list but the username and password are not being displayed and will not autofill to the website I am attempting to use. However, when I am using the website on my pc I have no issues at all. Even after manually entering the username on the app password list and attempt to access it again at a later time, the username and password are not being displayed or deleted. Please see attached photo as an example.

Issue with .mobileconfig File Downloads on Firefox for iOS

Hello, everyone!

I'm encountering a perplexing problem with downloading .mobileconfig WiFi profile files through a direct link in my ReactJS web application. This functionality works flawlessly on Google Chrome, Safari, and Edge across iPhone and iPad devices. However, when attempting the same on Firefox for iOS, the downloaded file becomes corrupted and unrecognizable as a .mobileconfig file.

The download mechanism is implemented using a simple anchor tag that points directly to the file on the server. Interestingly, only in Firefox on iOS, the content of the .mobileconfig file gets altered during the download process, leading to corruption.

I'm keen to understand why this issue is occurring specifically with Firefox on iOS and how to resolve it. Has anyone else faced a similar challenge or have any insights on how to ensure the file downloads correctly on all browsers, including Firefox on iOS? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help!

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?

I have tried this multiple times after force closing and restarting my iPhone, all to the same result: When I tried to use the + to add a new website, username, and password, the screen just flashes, and does not actually add the new info. Strangely, it offers to input a password when I place the cursor into the box for entering the brand new password I am trying to save. This seems to be a bug, but I cannot find how to report a bug.

Hello,

Firefox for iOS always worked with autofill until a couple of days ago. I cannot for the life of me get it to work. I deleted app, reinstalled, resynced and it still doesn’t work. I can see my passwords in the passwords section under privacy but it won’t autofill. I’m wondering if the latest update broke it.

Hi, I have moved to a new iPhone. I have got the Firefox app transferred over and have tried to synchronise having clicked the synchronise button. However, despite doing this several times only a handful of sign ins have come across. I have enabled facial recognition. I have on some occasions had a Firefox message screen come up: ‘To use the autofill feature for Firefox you must have a device passcode enabled’. I have tried googling this and am no better informed.

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.

I really like what Mozilla tries to do, and atm I'm working on becoming a Firefox user. I'm trying to use services from the big five as little as possible. Especially Meta and Google, but since I'm trying to use Apple services less as well, I'm trying to move from Safari to Firefox. However, the mobile experience has really let me down.

I had been trying the Orion browser for a while, but since it felt a bit unfinished (it's in beta after all), I thought maybe a major browser like Firefox would give me a more polished experience. And while the desktop (MacOS) app is OK, the iPhone and iPad experience is very poor.

Is there anything I can do to improve it?

My main problem is around tabs, and that I can't seem to be able to change the fact that almost every click opens the page in a new tab - BUT NOT ALWAYS. It's really inconsistent. This is also made worse by the fact that Firefox is late to the party when it comes to easy, swipeable, tab switching. On iPad it's made worse by the fact that it doesn't really support trackpads. If you scroll up and down with a trackpad, the menu bar on the top (and all the tabs) are hidden, even if you scroll up again! Are there any options I'm missing?

Can anyone help me make the experience better? Any (at least) semi-happy iOS/iPadOS users out there? This is really poor from Firefox, IMO. And this isn't actually Apple's fault, as this has nothing to do with the restrictions they put browsers on their platforms.
