I have a Macbook Pro (2015) running Big Sur and an iPhone XSMax (up-to-date). My Mac has Parallels and I used to use Firefox on the Windows 10 side. Recently decided to stop using Safari (fr privacy issues) and it is a pain to constantly go to the Windows side, so I installed it on the Ma side, and on my iPhone. a few issues:

1)On Mac, I set my search preferences and remove all but DuckDuckGo, and make DDG my default SE. After a few days, it always reverts back to Google and all her friends. I posted about this a while ago and didn't get any responses.

2) FF is not saving any of my history! I am very upset about this and cannot figure out why. I've lost a lot of productivity because of it.

3) And the Sync function between iPhone and Mac - the Mac side tells me to syn and the iPhone side says it is synced.

I wish I could call someone and get an answer in real time. Thank you!

Had no luck investigating why Firefox (latest) on BigSUR (latest) as to why it is slow or unresponsive. If i copy the URL and try Chrome the website comes up straight away. I have tried all suggested settings to no avail. Last ditch attempt to ask before I ditch Firefox altogether.

PS no add-ons installed.

Advice welcome.

Hello!

I haven't faced this issue while using WIndows. However, when I started using iOS, this problem appeared. How it works -> I open Firefox, Login, synchronize and using it all day. But if I close FireFox from running, next day I have to LOGIN and SYNCHRONIZE again, like I haven't saved anything.

How it should work -> I close FF from running. I open FF again and it's all the same like I left it (not talking about Tabs). I have in mind no need to login and syncronize all the data again.

I am sure there must be people who already found solution to this.

Thank you! :)

Hello, this isn't so much a question, but a quirk i noticed that should be fixed.

I have my Windows PC version of the Firefox browser set to wipe all cookies and all history whenever I exit or close Firefox. I have also installed Firefox on my iPhone 11 and have it synced with the Windows version of Firefox. Recently, I noticed that while my Windows version continues to wipe all cookies and history as expected, the browser history from my PC is being synced and retained on my iPhone, even after it has been wiped from my Windows version. This is in addition to retaining its own iOS browser history, which has not been set to be wiped.

This could have pretty serious privacy and security implications for some people. Surely, if the browser history is cleared on a device, then the syncing process should clear the browser history for that device across any and all synced devices.

I have been using Lastpass with Firefox for a couple of years with no problems. But recently I ran into an issue and need help. I can log in to Lastpass and it will automatically fill in passwords as it should; however, when I click on the Lastpass icon all I get is a white box -- so I cannot open my vault. I think this happened after the last Firefox update but am not sure about this. Any ideas?

Hi,

on iPhone I often use mobile safari, as there I am able to use 1blocker and adguard as extensions for content blockers, although firefox mobile uses webkit, too (well, apple forces to use their engine and does let use your better netscape/mozilla/firefox engine).

There I have the problem, the tabs showing a pdf can not be sent to a firefox sync browser. Other pages (HTML, PHP ...) can be sent to a firefox sync browser.

=> So firefox app should support accepting pdf, if I want to transfer it to the local mobile firefox or send to a 'firefox sync browser' (= browsers registered in firefox sync).

The workaround I use is, copy URL to pdf, paste in mobile firefox browser, open it there and then send to a 'firefox sync browser'. So this problem is solvable with this workaround, but it is rather cumbersome to do this for many found pdf's.

Another solution would be, that webkit in mobile firefox supports extensions like the content blockers 1blocker, adguard or other, but this would imply much more work and perhaps apple does not allow supporting external content blockers even if they are only from appstore.
