You should make it so you have to opt to turn in on.

I would LOVE to see the option to either

  • save bookmarks to the last selected location
  • or to set a different default location than „mobile bookmarks“

The background d is that I usually never want to save to mobile bookmark folder, and almost exclusively use the bookmark bar or even a specific „sort“/„inbox“ folder in it.

Is there a way to achieve this on iOS already?

Hello team,

After the latest update, which happened today, the address bar got so narrow that not only can I not see the address I am browsing, but I can’t type a new address either, because the reader view or certificate info buttons are too close to one another (see attached image).

I hope this can be addressed soon. Browsing has become much of a hassle now.

Thanks,

I find the process of adding bookmarks really difficult. I have a ton of them and I need to keep them organized, so I have to add them to the correct folder when I make them. So on mobile, I have to go to the menu, tap add, quickly tap the "edit" button before it goes away, navigate out of mobile bookmarks to desktop bookmarks, scroll past every single folder and subfolder I have (there are a lot) and finally get to save my bookmark. Then, when I find something else I want to remember in the same category, I have to do the same 6-step process because the browser doesn't automatically navigate to the last folder I saved to. If anyone knows of a way to make the process shorter I would be very grateful.

Firefox keeps opening up external apps when I do not want them to be opened. It opens the link in the browser AND in the app, which makes it insultingly frustrating when I eventually go to close the tabs in the browser because every time I try to close the tabs, the external app reopens!

On an iPhone, Firefox stores your browsing history within the app’s local storage, which is not directly accessible due to iOS’s security restrictions.

However, you can only export your ~FUTURE~ local mobile browsing history by using Firefox Sync.

Firefox Sync does not work retroactively for local mobile browsing history from past sessions due to the way the synchronization process is structured.

TL;DR: I want to export my local mobile browsing history as .txt or .csv -- When you enable Firefox Sync, it starts syncing the data from that point forward. However, my pre-existing local mobile browsing history cannot be exported as a file such as bookmarks can, and it cannot be saved to my desktop via Firefox Sync for the reasons above. Thus, it is literally only possible to scroll over it and open the sites one-by-one in order to pop them into the Sync-able history, which I do not want to do using iOS automation...

Please fix or advise. Thank you.

I've noticed a large increase in ads in Firefox for iOS. Seems like it started about 6 months ago. The worst is Google ads that overlay functional parts of a website. Example is the home page and 10 day forecast page of wunderground.com.

The problem is definitely in Firefox. Firefox Focus doesn't suffer from these ads.

I want Firefox to default to opening all links in firefox.

Whenever I click a link that is associated with a third party app, Firefox opens that app. It doesn’t happen in safari and it significantly hampers usability. (E.g. the IMDB app streams videos but doesn’t seem to actually show information about the shows, so to easily access it, you need the actual site to open, not the app.) I would like to disable this feature and have everything open in the browser, the way it does in safari. How do I do this?

Mobile iOS Firefox

Hello

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this, but it’s regarding something you should know. When I first started working on a computer full time I choose Firefox as my browser. The reason being that I thought working on a computer shouldn’t be just entry work. I thought it should be somewhat fun as well.

Now I think my first version of Firefox was around ver. 15. With that one I could change the whole look of the browser to make it more fun, it offered many very useful add ons, and it was a very fast and reliable browser. Because of this when I had to choose an email client I chose Thunderbird, because it had many of the same fun options.

So I worked on a computer for 10 years and I think by that time Firefox was somewhere North of ver. 60. I think due to all of the improvements in speed and security I couldn’t dress it up like the earlier models, but you could change the banner at the top which was neat, and almost all of the add ons had been constantly updated my the developers so I never had to delete a single one. Plus things were continually being added to the browser itself, so all in all I was never dissatisfied with it and recommended it to anyone looking for a browser to use on their computer.

Unfortunately I no longer work or have a computer and I am forced to do everything on an iPad. Naturally my first choice for a browser was Firefox. Of course I can’t do the fun things with this mobile browser, which I accepted because it did pretty much everything else just as it should. Until it started going downhill. Now, your mobile browser is, in a word, awful. Here are just a few of the problems it now has:

1. Web pages. When I first started using it a web page would be there until I closed it. No matter how many pages were open. Now, even if I have only two or three pages open, I close Firefox down and launch it again, the tabs are there showing what pages were open, but no URLs, and thus no pages. Everything is blank. 2. Speed. Our wi-fi has speeds ranging from 100Mpbs to 300Mpbs for downloads. But lately, some of those very same pages, well, let’s just say I could go and get a cup of coffee and they’d still be loading. 3. Logins. This is the worst issue. I must have logged into at least two dozen sites in Firefox and you know how many logins it saved? Two. Totally unacceptable! I don’t have the time or patience to continually look up login info that Firefox should have saved. It doesn’t even ask if I want to save that info.

So, I have kept Firefox on my iPad, and I will check every once in a while to see if there have been any improvements. But, until then, Google has become my default browser. It’s rather sad when the people who make the basic engine for the TOR browser, the world’s most private browser, can’t make a mobile browser that works properly.

So, until later Greg
