Hi,

I have been using Ff Focus for years and love it.

When I want to navigate to a site, I want to tap the URL bar and type the URL (or first letter of using the handy auto-complete). That used to work well. Maybe 2 months ago, the behavior of the URL bar seems to have changed.

Before, when I tapped the URL bar, all text would be selected. That made it easy to begin typing and overwrite the existing URL. Now, when I tap the URL bar, the cursor is placed at the end of the current URL. To erase the existing URL, I have to additionally tap the little X. It is small and hard to accurately tap. I often have to tap it several times.

The new behavior is less desirable. Most of the time when I tap the URL bar, it is because I want to type in a new URL. It is almost never the case that I want to append text to the URL.


I suppose this new behavior solves the problem that if I want to highlight only a portion of the URL, it is easier. It used to be very difficult to remove the selection when all text was selected.

I understand it’s impossible to please everyone. I just wanted to give feedback that the new behavior is less than ideal for me.

Either way, great product and thanks for the selfless work.

Visiting some sites causes me to lose the ability to go back

When I visit this site: https://www.mnot.net/blog/2022/06/22/chromium-only

I get a server error message. That’s fine, but then I notice I am not able to press the back button. It is grayed out as if there is no history to go back to.

This happens both if I click on that click from a page and if load a page, e.g. google.com, and then paste the link into the URL bar.

If I perform the same actions in safari, I also get an error, but I am still able to use the back button.

This is not the only URL that has caused this issue, but it is the first where I remembered to save the URL.

I am on Firefox Focus version 100.0 and iPhone 12 mini iOS version 15.5.

Thanks and keep up the great work!
