On Firefox for iOS, I usually have about 14 tabs. A few of them went inactive, so I reopened them from the inactive tabs section. However, later the same day, I open Firefox again and they’re inactive again. I reopen the tabs again. I decided to do a test. I force-quit the app and restarted Firefox, and once again they’re inactive.

This behavior started a few weeks ago and it’s really annoying, and Im not sure how to fix it. I also noticed that a few of the webpages are now constantly asking to accept cookies when Firefox is restarted. I haven’t changed any settings, so I’m not sure why this is happening.

Hey there! It sounds like you're dealing with a bit of a frustrating situation. The tabs becoming inactive and constantly asking to accept cookies can definitely be bothersome. Here's what you can try: First, make sure you're using the latest version of Firefox for iOS from the App Store. Then, clear your browsing data including cookies and cache. You can do this by going to Settings within the app, then Privacy, and finally Clear Private Data. If the issue persists, try restarting your device. Hopefully, these steps should help get your tabs back on track and prevent those cookie pop-ups. Let me know how it goes or if you need more assistance!
