I’m having a massive issue with Firefox draining my battery on my iPad, I only use it for an hour and it uses large portions of my battery. It also seems to be refreshing itself in the background, even though I have the background refresh setting specifically turned off. I’ve noticed that other people have had this problem, and it’s been fixed by and update, but that does not seem to be the case for my usage. Are there any settings I can change or modify?

I want Firefox to default to opening all links in firefox.

Whenever I click a link that is associated with a third party app, Firefox opens that app. It doesn’t happen in safari and it significantly hampers usability. (E.g. the IMDB app streams videos but doesn’t seem to actually show information about the shows, so to easily access it, you need the actual site to open, not the app.) I would like to disable this feature and have everything open in the browser, the way it does in safari. How do I do this?

Hi, I just installed Firefox on my iPhone and I was looking into whether tab groups are possible, and it didn't seem so but I came across [article] that is confusing. Under "View Open Tabs", it references "tab groups in ascending order", but I can't seem to figure out how to create these groups. Is this actually possible? Thank you!

I cant transfer my bookmarks from safari to firefox - how can i grant access to firefox for my safari bookmarks.plist please?

I've found the file and copied it to my desktop and a flashdrive, how do I add it to firefox now. The normal way can't get past the 'explicit permission needed' stage. Is there a way to import it another way? Thanks.

I’m devastated. Please tell me how to recover all the tabs I lost.

I had disabled the sync feature weeks ago, but when I opened Firefox just now, it had 1) synced with my MacBook 2) lost every open tab on my iPhone

Please please someone respond to this. Why is there no solution offered in this forum? Clearly a number of people have had the same problem.

Thank you

Firefox forgets logins and crashes a lot on iOS & iPadOS 16 and 16.1

  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!
