Issue with .mobileconfig File Downloads on Firefox for iOS

Hello, everyone!

I'm encountering a perplexing problem with downloading .mobileconfig WiFi profile files through a direct link in my ReactJS web application. This functionality works flawlessly on Google Chrome, Safari, and Edge across iPhone and iPad devices. However, when attempting the same on Firefox for iOS, the downloaded file becomes corrupted and unrecognizable as a .mobileconfig file.

The download mechanism is implemented using a simple anchor tag that points directly to the file on the server. Interestingly, only in Firefox on iOS, the content of the .mobileconfig file gets altered during the download process, leading to corruption.

I'm keen to understand why this issue is occurring specifically with Firefox on iOS and how to resolve it. Has anyone else faced a similar challenge or have any insights on how to ensure the file downloads correctly on all browsers, including Firefox on iOS? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help!

i’m not sure how to explain this. on only one site (arstechnica.com) the page displays odd coloring and freezes if sorted by votes, and as of today, if selecting the next page. it’s truly bizarre. other browsers don’t do this, only ff. i prefer ff though and would appreciate your help, thank you.

Hello,

I have successfully switched from chrome to firefox, installed all my extensions and transferred the bookmarks. However, I noticed that credit card details to not autofill when I try to purchase something which is a dealbreaker for me. After some research, I learnt that this feature is somehow limited to some countries (US, Canada,...). While I was able to update this by ading my country to the list in the Desktop all (following https://superuser.com/questions/1694712/how-do-i-enable-credit-card-autofill-feature-outside-u-s-and-canada), I am unable to access the same setting in the mobile app.

Could someone advise how to enable credit card autofill in the iOS app? For clarity, this works in the Desktop app so the details are there. It also works in chrome on iOS so I don't really understand why chrome can do it but Firefox mobile can't...

I am using Firefox 124.2 (40108) on my iPhone with iOS 16.7.7 (20H330) and using DuckDuckGo as the default search engine. Loading settings with their Cloud Save service does not work as expected: the settings reset each time you restart the app.

How to get DuckDuckGo settings to persist across sessions in the app?

I have tried this multiple times after force closing and restarting my iPhone, all to the same result: When I tried to use the + to add a new website, username, and password, the screen just flashes, and does not actually add the new info. Strangely, it offers to input a password when I place the cursor into the box for entering the brand new password I am trying to save. This seems to be a bug, but I cannot find how to report a bug.

Sometimes randomly, but happens often when using EBay, clicking on link opens to a new blank tab. The tab lists about:blank. Sometimes the link will work after a couple tries, but sometimes can take more than 5 times to get the link to open. On some sites it can happen randomly, but it’s pretty repeatable while using eBay. I have deleted the app from iPad, did a hard reset, and reinstalled the app, but there is no difference in behavior. Behavior started with the most recent Firefox iOS update. Firefox iOS, Firefox 124.0 (39709), iPad iOS running all latest versions and updates as of 03/24.

Since the last update (123.4) I have this behavior in both iPadOS and iOS: when there's a link that opens in a new tab, most of the time the new tab will open an about:blank page instead of the actual link.

I noticed this happens as I use the browser more: if I force close it and reopen it, the links will usually load OK for the first 1-4 sites, but after a period (or loading a "heavy" site la Facebook) I can reproduce the error 90% of the time.

Happens on iPad Air 3 and iPhone 13 mini.

Here's a screen recording of this behavior: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0289O_mRO-taFjm4tcOH3bAtQ

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.

The most troublesome is; getting links in email to open in the browser, Firefox is my default browser.

Links continue to function if I use Safari, DuckDuckGo or Edge... I have selected Safari, as my default browser in the interim and I don't like it, so HELP !!!

I receive links from a few sources (i.e. Wall Street Journal) that have lists of link’s to articles both on their webpage and their App.

If I have Safari as the default browser the link directs me to the app, where the full article is available. If I have Firefox as the default browser (which I prefer) it directs me to the web version, which is incomplete, as it requires a more expensive subscription to access the full content.

Why can’t Firefox link directly to the App if present on the device?

Hi @all, Such quite a while, Firefox almost constantly crashing when closing a or better the last open tab. Tried a support hint and deleted cache and everything and after that it worked for a few days and then it coming up again. When it happens, and I restart FF and try a logged in page directly, I.e. Facebook, FF doesn’t recognize my signin. Closing the tab, waiting a moment, restart the page again and everything is fine. Really don’t know when this behavior begun, but it is really annoying. I face this problem on 2 different iPad Pro. The newer one from last year with an M2 processor and an older one with an Axx don’t know which one exactly. What’s the matter with that? Kind regards Frank
