  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 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.

After a variable time-frame, from few minutes to a couple of hours maximum of usage, the app freezes.

It is possible to close it from the drawer and restart it after a while. The problem always recurs.

Sometimes the phone also reboots itself. Approximately once every 5/10 freezes.

The problem does not seems dependent on updates, add-ons or other phone options.

The problem is present since I bought the phone in August. After a few months of tests I'm fairly sure this is a problem related only to the Firefox app.

Device: Pixel 6a

This isnt about tabs, but only thing close to my problem in drop down.

My problem is the google calender headings at the top of the calender are now unreadable when I use Firefox browser. It happened after last update. The letters are now cramed in and on top of each other for buttons such as month forward or back or even titile of month.

Any suggestions or knowledge is great.

Favicon being overridden by images from webpages instead

I've noticed since I've replaced my Samsung tablet with a newer version (S6 Lite running Android 12) that this version of Firefox is not picking up the favicon on my website. When I save the website shortcut to my homescreen, instead of the favicon Firefox is picking up the first image it finds on the page.

So - if I save all five webpages of my website to my tablet, each will have a different image - and none of them will be my favicon. The image from my tablet screen, attached (5 rows x 6 icons, against a beach backdrop) - shows three of the pages from my website, circled in yellow. You can see that none of them have picked up my fish favicon, and some of them have picked up the Etsy image link instead.

This problem of the favicon being ignored isn't being replicated elsewhere - my PC (very ancient, running an up to date Firefox browser) shows the favicon in the browser toolbar and on the homescreen, and my Samsung phone (equally ancient, running an up to date Chrome browser) shows the generic alphabet letter icon when the website is saved to my homescreen (this is not a problem, I'm just mentioning it). Images attached.

Is there a simple fix for the favicon being overridden, or a workaround? I'd be grateful if someone could explain why it's happened and what I can do to fix it. I'm conscious that if someone saved my website to their browser using just the favicon and no text, as I do, they might simply delete it if they don't recognise the favicon. Thanks in advance. Rachel

Again this is MOBILE Firefox on Android and all the backing out using arrows does is leave me with yet another empty folder. F*** that arrow button!!! It really needs to be more straight forward like making YouTube playlists or even how bookmarks work with Firefox on PC.

I really do want it to work but I have never had so much difficulty adding bookmarks to folders on any other browsers mobile or PC, this sucks!

So one more time, you select edit on a bookmark then checkmark the folder you want and arbitrarily back out without using any kind of confirmation button and then go back into said folder and expect that bookmark to be there. Am I getting that right?

Cause it would super sick if there was actually a bookmark in the damn folder when I went back to it. All I have now are empty folders so what am I missing???

Thanks for the help I greatly appreciate it and I would really like to like to keep using Firefox

On Firefox for Android Nightly my desktop devices no longer display in the Send to Device list. They used to show a few weeks ago. Now only other Firefox for Android devices show in the list.

On Firefox for Android (not Nightly) and desktop Firefox (for Ubuntu) all my devices appear in the list. When logged into the Firefox account, all devices show as connected. I can send tabs from any other device to Firefox for Android Nightly.

Hi, everyone.

I have noticed that when I go to youtube on my ios/ipados devices, that they do not sync properly to other devices. When I load a video, the tab sync will still show on other devices as the Youtube landing page (not the video title it should show) until after I open another tab and load/refresh a page in the new tab. This was also a problem on Mac firefox but appears to have been fixed with the latest MacOS Firefox update. It is still a problem on iOS/iPadOS even after the latest Firefox update today.

A second concern: when I use reader mode, I prefer having a light background. But when my ipad switches to dark mode (and my firefox browser follows suit, since I have it set to device theme), I notice that anytime I leave the app and come back to it, the background keeps switching back to dark. Sometimes it will switch over in the middle of reading an article. Also, changing the font will similarly revert the background color to the theme color.

Thanks for looking into these issues.

These "crashes" aren't in the Report, so I'm not sure what to do. I've pressed Quit, I've cleared the Cache (twice), and I've deleted and reinstalled the app. Firefox was working just fine until recently. These crashes only to seemingly happen on YouTube and Tumblr. It closes worse when I have the YouYube in Background Add-on on, but it isn't just because of that. If anyone knows how to fix this, feel free to answer.

Hopeful for solution, multiple posters have asked about issue without responses

I have used links to websites added to home screen. These shortcuts recently stopped working. If I use bookmark on Firefox Android it opens. If I copy url to Chrome and create a shortcut link on home screen it works. Is there a Firefox setting that changed? I've used these shortcuts without problem on this phone until past week or so.

I'm on Android 11 updated to Oct 2022. Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G. Firefox 107.1.0 with "add shortcuts to home screen" enabled.

Thank you for guidance.
