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.

The issue has been reported here: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-ios/issues/12053

I have Firefox as my default browser on iOS. However, tapping “search web” from the context menu that appears when text is selected, opens Safari instead of a new tab in Firefox. The only workaround is to tap “look up” from the context menu and tap “search web” in Siri, breaking up what earlier required a single step into two steps.

Sessions in Firefox Mobile, iPhone 7, crashed, and no "Restore sessions" was available. How to restore sessions?

Dear Firefox Mobile Support Team, Sirs, I am deeply grateful for your help, products, and efforts to keep users safe, with adequate tools. I use FF on all devices I have, iphone, laptops, iPad... The query now: Few hours ago, the Firefox mobile, on my iPhone, ver. 7, 2018 model, IOS 15.7.1, 256 GB memory - 120 GB full, crashed. I had about 50 sessions opened. As from similar situations before (such errors do not happen often - maybe 1/2 per year), an error message came stating the usual, "It is embarrassing, do I want to Restore sessions, with Options No or Okay". After choosing the second option, Okay to restore all sessions, a restoration was performed. But NO sessions were restored, except that a new tab, empty, was opened.

Practically, the Restore function form the error message did not worked.

I checked the history from the 3bars, History, there is a long list of searches... But there are NO other options available in the controls row in the top there for the History to help restore the sessions. The controls seen are: Bookmarks (asteric), History (a clock), Download (arrow down) and Reading List (a book icon).

There, in the 3 bars, the History choice is as above. The Settings option is with no command to Restore Sessions. A check of the other options also does not lead to a function restore sessions.

Please advise if I can restore the sessions (opened tabs) from various searches and how to do it. I can't imagine there is no way to do it.

The Search history is also available from the empty opened page, Recent history, with the control link - Show all. But as from the above, the history is a history, and not for long period back, traced up to a month, although it may hold for longer period history links....

Similar situation happened about an year and a half, with probably 70-80 sessions/tabs opened. But there, the message was that they were archived. But there was no way, or option to return to the archived sessions. I started/continued then with new sessions, they grew with various searches until today. When the crash happened. Few days ago another crash happened, but then the function Restore Sessions worked, and all sessions were opened.

Either I am not aware of a solution that already exists in Firefox for IOS, or there are misses for such common situations as controls, commands to help to deal with them.

Please help. There must be an option to copy the history (as of now as list) and save it in a file (which to be able to be attached to email and send). Now there is NO such option (on the FF mobile. There must be a function from the 3bars, or help or settings, or the History, as a control/command - Restore previous sessions/tabs. Now there is NOT such a function.

Crashes happen, for many reasons. Therefore the aim is to offer functions to deal with them, safely, for both desktop and mobile FF.

Please help. Many thanks. Stan

P.S. I write here from my laptop. Not the iPhone. For ease. Similar functions should exist (be added if not yet there) for both desktop (laptop) and mobile Firefox. My style of searching (and many like me) is with a lot of sessions/tabs, to which I return now or then. Hence the browsing history from one tab (session) is not of interest (as of now many links but from a single session/tab), but the links from the various sessions. Reason - sessions/tabs cover usually different directions of search, while each one session/tab is for a single website and being opened one can follow the new updates of data there. Chronological list of history shows many searches from a session/tab, which is not much of interest. Maybe a way for better organization of future versions.

I believe my iPhone 7+ and/or Firefox has been infected with a redirection virus. I can no longer access my Amazon account. Instead it gets switched to a Spanish language version of Amazon. I get other frequent redirects as well. Sometimes my keyboard speed drops to only one character per several seconds. I have deleted my browsing history in Firefox. Safari seems to be relatively unaffected. I am running all current versions of iOS and Firefox. Any and all assistance greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Mark

The browser started continuously crashing a few days ago. When I reopen the app, a message pops up that says it crashed and wants to know if I want to reopen all of my tabs or not. The app will almost immediately crash again. Sometimes there’s enough time to hit yes or no on request to reopen the tabs. Regardless of what one is pressed, the app almost immediately crashes once more. I checked the app, and realized I was using 107.0 instead of the most current 107.2 app. I updated the app, and I made sure I was using the most current iOS as well. I’ve restarted my phone. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, but to no avail. Is anyone else experiencing these issues? Please help?

Hello, since the latest update, the entire app is really slow. Especially when typing in search terms into the universal browser window. I've also noticed freezing of the app which requires closing out the app and opening again to fix. I have lots of tabs I do not want to lose so deleting the app completely is not an option. Please advise. I believe this has been reported multiple times in the app store with users experiencing the same or similar issues. Thank you
