When I do a search in the recently downloaded Firefox focus, I am still directed to google. Is that how Firefox focus works.? And I thought I would be searching the Internet through Firefox and nothing would be going through Google. The default search engine is still set for Ecosia and there is no option to use Firefox. Did I do something wrong here or is that the way this works?

Is there any means to add an option to disable JavaScript in Firefox Focus? This browser has been my go-to / default browser for years on iOS, but lately it has become more difficult to use because websites wait several seconds or wait until I’ve scrolled halfway through a page before blasting a huge window up on the screen asking/demanding/requesting I sign in or agree to their (not so private) privacy policy. Even if I get by that, it seems to refresh the page and I lose where I was.

I’ve found Safari obviates this issue when I leave JavaScript off. I don’t really want to shift entirely to safari, but websites have made using Firefox Focus a bit less useful because of those pop-up windows.

I primarily use Tor Browser or Firefox with uBlock Origin (JavaScript disabled) on my regular computers and happily have few issues using the internet.

The URL autocomplete feature does not work under the following conditions:

>an existing URL is selected >one or more characters are typed very quickly

It still works when the URL/search bar is empty/cleared or when one waits long enough until entering text, but it is very obstructive for users who value the speed of this application. The issue has existed for several updates and has not been fixed.

Thank you for your consideration.

Just downloaded Firefox focus for iOS and I will say that it is the best browser I have used in terms of most things, except for the fact it seems that you can only go back one page at a time. I am an old-habits-die-hard chrome user and I genuinely want to switch to this browser, but without the ability to go back more than one page at a time it will be tough. Expected behavior: Holding down on the back button opens a list of recently visited pages for the current tab in sorted by order visited.

Hi. I was searching FireFox Focus and I couldn't save an interesting URL I found, since I closed the browser by mistake.

Is there any way to recover it? I know the point is that FireFox deletes you data, but I'm trying my best. Thank you very much.

In choosing a search engine, I found out from the directions on Firefox focus how to add them. But when they gave the string for Wikipedia, it did not work. I was wondering if any knew the accurate one and also is there a webpage that gives search strings for many apps or web pages? When I did a search under “Wikipedia Search Engine String”, I didn’t see a web page that offered it and I couldn’t find it on the Wikipedia site. If someone doesn’t mind, can you give me the directions on how to find them? I would be very grateful.
