Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

I posted a review on the iOS market and received an email asking to post on this forum.

Firefox freezes several times an hour. It crashes every three hours. I installed the Adblock Pro extension (free version). Maybe it’s related but I have not noticed anything related to the extension. Safari doesn’t crash and uses the same extension.

The only point to use Firefox on iOS is the password manager and dark mode. Printing is inferior because it forces pagination.

  1. Whenever you login a site, Firefox does not remember the cookies from the login. So when you close the app and open it later, so you need to login again.
  1. Firefox crashes a lot since iOS 16 and now too on 16.1, and now also since the release iPadOS 16.1. This makes the app difficult to use and really bad.

Both are very frustrating and important issue, please fix it!

I get constant crashes on Firefox for iOS. When I posted this in a review in the app store, you asked me to post it here. This happens both on iPhone 13 Pro as well as on an iPad Pro 11" 2018.

There is no rule on when it happens. Sometimes it happens when switching tabs, sometimes when adding tabs by opening links in the background, sometimes when just reading. Firefox slows down, becomes very unresponsive and just closes. When I open it again, I get an "woops something went wrong" popup and the tabs open again. It usually goes better after reopening, so it's not related to the websites I was visiting. For your info, this is when visiting news sites (The Guardian, VRT NWS) or forums (modulargrid.net, modwiggler, gearspace) or anything else. It's becoming very unusable and hasn't gone away despite following the updates.

After the most recent update to version 106.1 on my iPhone 11 iOS 15.6.1, every time I open Firefox and open a new tab the browser is unresponsive for several seconds, then slowly registers my input in the search bar, and occasionally crashes during that process. It also hangs up and crashes at random. It will no longer open links to PDF files. I love Firefox, but this is becoming unusable.

Firefox asks if I want to restore tabs, but no matter the answer it always crashes. I did reinstall the app on the phone - did not help.

So much so I have deleted and reinstalled the app 4 or 5 times and every time after I sign in and sync it starts again. My iPhone is up to date with iOS 16. I don’t know what happened or why this keeps happening. Please help?

I’ve been using Firefox synced to my account on my iPad for a while with no problems, and only started running into this problem today. The app for the most part works normally, but when I open specifically the history tab the whole app crashes. I can still use Firefox on my android and computer completely fine, and have tried clearing some of my history using my phone, to no avail. Only the history tab does this- downloads, bookmarks, and reading list are all fine. Any advice on how to fix this?

Every time I launch Firefox for iOS on my iPhone or iPad the app either crashes or hangs. I am using “old” Apple products both operating on iOS 15.7. Crashing occurs pretty much every time now I open the app (version Firefox 106.0 (20303)). I usually only have a handful of tabs open at any time so I don’t think my browsing habits are the cause? I have also noticed “flickering” between the shortcuts on my Firefox homepage - the name or icon for a few of the shortcuts switches around like some kind of identity crisis - so something is obviously glitching. The app hanging occurs when I am entering login/password details. Sometimes it takes 20 seconds to progress from the username field to the password field but more often the app just hangs and I have to relaunch and try again. I am almost at the point of ditching Firefox, the user experience is very bad. Any tips or suggestions please?

I use this for more than 5 years on iOS, but the last 2-3 versions became horrible. On iPhone XR with iOS 15, the app stops working if I swipe down the control center and go back to the app. When I start the app, the most visited sites and their icons are flashing for 1-2 secs, and some sites are really slow (it is hard to scroll, it almost freezes). I hope you can fix these bugs. If you need screencast to see the phenomenon, I can provide it as well. Thank you!

Firefox used to be my go to browser in all my devices. But since the latest updates, it has been buggy and slow to the point of not being an option anymore. I have seen that there are many reviews in the AppStore pointing to this, but seems that they go unnoticed. And the fact that you have to actually go through a series of hops to get support is unbearable. There are many examples of how the application’s performance has been degraded: - when switching to another app (i.e. notepad) and then coming back, it freezes for some 20 seconds before it crashes altogether - when opening a new tab, if you want to access the menu (some call it the “burger” menu on the upper right corner), the app takes almost a full minute before displaying it. - sometimes even opening a new tab, it takes forever to respond to the keyboard entry.

Hopefully in some future versions all these issues get fixed but for now, it has been a total buggy experience.

My Firefox on iOS has crashed recently; I usually get a pop up that offers all tabs to be restored afterwards. I didn’t have an option for that this time, is there a way the tabs can be restored manually? Had a couple tabs open in private for school research links and would hate to have to go searching for them again. Thanks!

Lost all tabs when Firefox / iPadOS crashes

This appears to be a problem that others have had (with no response). I'm posting it to let the Mozilla team know it continues to be a problem for some users.

Yesterday FF (whatever the latest version is running on an iPad Pro running iPadOS 15.7) crashed, and restarted with the usual "This is embarrassing..." message, and asked whether I want to restore all tabs. I hit yes, and it restarted with all tabs missing. Of course it then proceeded to erase all synced tabs the next time it connects to Mozilla's servers, so now all the tabs are gone.

Questions:

1. Is there a way to restore this to its previous state? As far as I can tell, the moment the mobile FF loses all its tabs and syncs them to the cloud, there's no easy way for the user to get the old tabs back.

2. Is it possible to have Sync set up so it doesn't erase all the tabs automatically? I mean, it should be clear that when this occurs after a crash, this may not be the desired behavior. At the very least, there should be an option to undo.

3. Is there a way to just "bookmark all tabs" on mobile FF? That way users can easily save the current state of their mobile browser without having to bookmark each tab individually. I understand this feature has been requested from time to time, and at some point saw a response from a Mozilla engineer saying it has been implemented but not released for UI reasons.

4. Can I download all my Firefox Sync data? Since Sync seems to write over previous state with no method for recovery, it cannot be relied upon as a backup. I would like to be able to make my own backups of my browser states to the extent I can.

Thanks! In principle I support open source and would like to continue using FF. If these usability / reliability issues can be resolved I think it would make at least a few FF users quite happy.
