Video of the issue

If i open a link to redirect to an app, let’s say wikipedia, it will redirect fine. When i switch back to Firefox, the mobile version of the link i clicked on will be loaded instead of just displaying search engine search results where i clicked the wikipedia link. (Admin note: edited to fix formatting issue)

Another thing that happens is if i click on the link, still being wikipedia, get redirected to the app, then close out firefox, the next time i open firefox, it will redirect me back to the wikipedia app.

This issue I have been having is not just related to Wikipedia, this is for any other link that may open a related app I have installed on my phone.

Hi,

Every time I open a PDF file with the Firefox app, and want to search for a word, it says 0/0, even if that word is actually in the document, and Safari and Google Drive can actually find it. I use iPhone 13 with ios 17.4.1. I have also tried it with English and non-English characters.

Thank you Noemi

A private site that authenticates via user certificates works successfully with Safari, but fails in Firefox iOS (yet works fine in Firefox for Windows) Firefox seems to neither: 1. access user certificates from the iOS Configuration Profile 2. manage certificates in its own store.

On initial load, Safari prompts for which certificate to use, while Firefox displays an NSURLErrorDomain message.

Is there a way to use user certificates in Firefox iOS for authentication (i.e. am I doing something incorrectly)? If not, can such functionality please be added.

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.

Sometimes randomly, but happens often when using EBay, clicking on link opens to a new blank tab. The tab lists about:blank. Sometimes the link will work after a couple tries, but sometimes can take more than 5 times to get the link to open. On some sites it can happen randomly, but it’s pretty repeatable while using eBay. I have deleted the app from iPad, did a hard reset, and reinstalled the app, but there is no difference in behavior. Behavior started with the most recent Firefox iOS update. Firefox iOS, Firefox 124.0 (39709), iPad iOS running all latest versions and updates as of 03/24.

Since the last update (123.4) I have this behavior in both iPadOS and iOS: when there's a link that opens in a new tab, most of the time the new tab will open an about:blank page instead of the actual link.

I noticed this happens as I use the browser more: if I force close it and reopen it, the links will usually load OK for the first 1-4 sites, but after a period (or loading a "heavy" site la Facebook) I can reproduce the error 90% of the time.

Happens on iPad Air 3 and iPhone 13 mini.

Here's a screen recording of this behavior: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0289O_mRO-taFjm4tcOH3bAtQ

Since updating Firefox to 123.0 several features are no longer working on my Apple iPhone using iOS 16.7.7 The recent update to 124.0 has NOT corrected the issue...

The most troublesome is; getting links in email to open in the browser, Firefox is my default browser.

Links continue to function if I use Safari, DuckDuckGo or Edge... I have selected Safari, as my default browser in the interim and I don't like it, so HELP !!!

I receive links from a few sources (i.e. Wall Street Journal) that have lists of link’s to articles both on their webpage and their App.

If I have Safari as the default browser the link directs me to the app, where the full article is available. If I have Firefox as the default browser (which I prefer) it directs me to the web version, which is incomplete, as it requires a more expensive subscription to access the full content.

Why can’t Firefox link directly to the App if present on the device?

[With ~Ff 123?8 and now 124 installed on iOS 17.3 platform updated a couple weeks ago from iOS 15.+ on my iPhone XR]

  For couple weeks , following any external link/reference, such as all 'unsubscribe' links from Apple Mail messages, Firefox opens but homepage rather than to the link/url argument (and url field shows blank, not display the extrrnal link's url address in url input box.
  Support history shows an identical problem in Ff ~117 reported (Aug '23, I think)   (if the condition of Firefox not currently running is same, which I haven't yet been able to determine) and apparently resolved then ( 2 replies, but thread is not visible because FF Support has it recorded as "Archived").
