The message “We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For best experience please update your browser.” appears on my iPad when I go to YouTube on my iPad using Firefox Focus but I do not get this error message using Firefox Focus on my iPhone.

I have an iPhone SE (March 2016 version) running iOS v13.4.1 & an iPad 6th generation running iPadOS v13.4.1 — both running the current version of Firefox Focus (I have tried deleting the Firefox Focus app, powering off the iPad, reinstalling Firefox Focus & verifying the issue is still present.

I remember hearing that iPadOS has something odd in the user agent string. I am not saying this is the issue but I know that around the time the user agent string changed that the app I use “broke” how was checking out audiobooks & ebooks from the local libraries using my iPad.

I installed several other browsers (which I will be removing because Firefox Focus is more secure) & have not seen this error message with any of them on my iPad.

I tried adding a screenshot of the error message to this post but I received the error that the file was too large.

About 3 weeks ago I started getting orange popup boxes asking whether I wanted to update Windows now or whether I wanted to be reminded tomorrow. I paid a tech company to resolve the problem but now the popups are more sophisticated stating that they are going to update right now or within 15 minutes. I am having to physically shutdown my computer to avoid issues with these intruders. Anyone experience this or have a suggestion on how to block these popups altogether. I have AdBlock and Privacy Badger but no luck so far. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Crashing when fingerprints registered with no screen lock

Hi, I have this strange problem on my Samsung Tab S3. Firefox focus was crashing whenever I tried to open a webpage. I checked the system logs and found it is related with the screen lock. Right now, I have stored fingerprints to use with apps like 1password, but I use just swipe for screen unlock, no password or fingerprints. So: - With screen lock enabled and fingerprints registered, Firefox Focus works. - Without screen lock and fingerprints deleted from device, Firefox Focus works. - Without screen lock but fingerprints registered in the device, Firefox Focus crashes when opening any page.

I also tested it with older versions of the app, same problem. But on my phone, Samsung Galaxy A5, I use the same settings with no problem (fingerprints registered, screen unlocked, firefox works normally). Seems it's only issue on my tablet. I currently deleted any fingerprints from the device so I can continue using Firefox, but I would like to find a fix since I use fingerprints for unlocking protected apps. Any ideas why that happens?

I have recently started trying to shift my mother over to more modern and privacy focused internet services, but she still uses AOL Mail for some things, and we have found that, while she can send an email from her new iCloud email to her old AOL Mail just fine through the Mail app, she cannot do the same if she tries to use the Sharesheet through Safari if Firefox Focus Safari integration is enabled. Surely a content blocker shouldn't block outgoing requests, only incoming? Any insight would be much appreciated

I failed to concider the possibility that this could happen. I lost multiple shortcuts that I used from my home screen, some on a daily basis, for both work and personal, and many were links to articles that I haven't read yet. I don't remember what they all were as I relied on the shortcuts to remember. I appreciate any help. Thanks
