As I try to rotate the screen orientation while using Firefox Focus, the screen goes blank. This doesn't happen elsewhere on any other app on my device. I tried re-installing and restarting my phone, but I have the same problem. Anybody encounter this issue?

Stop opening in external apps?

When I tap on a YouTube link, or Reddit, or Amazon etc, FireFox Focus opens it in the native app. This completely undermines the entire purpose of app. I use it when I don’t want to access something while signed in. It’s crazy that a “Privacy Browser” happily gives my searches over to the companies I’m trying to avoid.

This seems to be new behavior in a recent update… it used to occasionally ask me if I wanted to open the app but now it’s just automatic.

If I long press a link and tap “open link” it usually stays inside FireFox Focus… but it’s inconvenient, hard to remember, and I never know what is going to trigger the external apps.

Can we please at least give the option to disable this??

Since today, tapping and holding a link would use the same preview method as Safari, where it would show you a preview box that could show either a preview of the website or just the URL, switched by tapping the top right of the box. Now it uses its own preview mechanism and there is no option to show only the URL and nothing else. Could you please add such an option on the box? Thank you in advance.

I have Focus set as my default browser but the “open in Safari” option is gone and replaced by “open in default browser “ and “open in Firefox”. How do I open in Safari if focus is my default browser. I’ve already tried reinstalling the app.

recently i noticed that focus no longer asks before opening a link in another app (e.g. a youtube link in the youtube app). i know that you can open it in focus by long pressing on the link and clicking open link rather than open in default browser (which is set in settings to be firefox focus, but still opens it in the relevant app), but it's a hassle to do every time. is there a way to re-enable asking before opening an app, or at the very least opening it in focus by default?

I have set Firefox as the default browser, but on my new Pixel 7 Pro, Chrome seems to be used on every link I tap. But it is not resetting my default in Firefox. It just seems to ignore my setting, and acts like it is the default browser. Is there another place I need to set the default?
