App Crashes 1/5
I just updated and the app force closes every time.
By Play-Doh Brainz
Just keeps getting better. This is now my default browser in iOS, macOS, and Windows. Keep up the great work!
Works great and is faster than Safari! I like all the setting controls to personalize it for each user. I have not had any problems with it. I will definitely keep using it.
Best browser 5/5
It's the fastest browser I have. I would like to know where the setting is to not load images in the new version. I can't find it anywhere. Ok thanks. That's why I couldn't find it. I'm on 10.3.3
Favorite browser 5/5
By Travis Naraine
Clean and sleek.
Feels like a combination of Chrome and Safari
unable to remove pocket 2/5
I will consider using this app if pocket can be uninstalled.
Wow. Pretty bad. 1/5
Mozilla, you feeling ok?
BOOKMARKS: No editing of any kind? Cannot sort or change bookmark position/order. Cannot edit bookmark names or titles. Why Mozilla? This is crazy for a browser in 2017. Some bookmark names end up being entire sentences long.
HISTORY: Clearing history is cumbersome and typical hamburger menu and it's submenu hell. It takes 4or 5 steps to clear history including having to enter a Clear Private Data submenu just to press the actual Clear Private Data button. LOL.
Every single site you visit gets added as a picture whether you want them or not.
It's just all become so goofy these days with this trend of "users are really dumb" design.
Bad Update I didn't ask for 1/5
I never updated this app. It updates itself even though none of my apps are set to automatic update. For that alone, I am disillusioned with Firefox. It's supposed to be private but forced an update on my phone. And it's not private!!! I don't want this is the "private mode"! On top of all of that, it barely loads pages anymore. It's so slow I don't even want to use it. Thanks Firefox! For caving to non privacy and Google just like all of the other browsers! 😡
Not sure why my review was "edited" or says "ABCTHAF". I assume that is the person who edited.
Love the update! 5/5
Firefox is now my default browser on every device including MacBook Pro and PC (which I’m forced to use at work). The speed is blazing compared to anything (including former version of firefox) that I’ve used. Just have to get used to an extra click from time to time to give permission for a page. Small price to pay for Mozilla’s attention to privacy concerns.
Hangs a lot 1/5
When performing search in address bar the app always hangs for ~5 sec which is SUPER ANNOYING. Problem started ever since the icon changed. Updates are supposed to improve performance, not make them worse. As a loyal Firefox user I I primarily use Firefox as my mobile browser since it came to iOS but this hanging issue is making me want to switch.. Reminds me of the old days when everyone dropped ff for Chrome because performance was so bad. I stuck to the desktop version but am going to switch to another browser until an update fixes this annoying issue.
Love when it works. 4/5
By Crash Oldtimer
When using FF 10.2 version it sometimes gets stuck on going to tabs mode, shows as background image some old tab (does not matter it was page from private or normal mode). Also bottom action bar disappears in portrait, but can be brought back by switching to landscape.
Avoid this browser 1/5
Mozilla took money from Soros, and they have decided to censor the news you receive. Expect corporate bankster propaganda to be proritized. Try the Brave browser instead.
Shares your browsing with a 3rd party 1/5
There is no way to get to about:config. Foxfire shares your browsing with “Pocket” and there isn’t any way on the iPhone app to stop it from sharing everything about what you are doing. I original choose Firefox and used DuckDuckGo to limit data collected and spit back at me but now Foxfire just gives everything I search for in DuckDuckGo to Pocket, defeating the purpose of using DuckDuckGo. Not Cool!
Clearly Mozilla has forgot about cunsumer 1/5
Mozilla has made a 180 degree move toward customer protection and individual flexibility. More in line to I.E. inefficiency. This update claims design secure and simplicity. When in fact it's anything but .
As a longtime user I am appalled at the lack of functionality and the inability to integrate open-source applications anymore. So sad.
Support g 5/5

How to Get Rid of Pocket? 4/5
By SBA User
How do I get rid of the so-called Pocket feature? It doesn't even display websites I'm interested in. I WANT TO CONTROL MY HOME PAGE!!!
Update: Received a response from Mozilla and was easy to do. The speed of Firefox is quick. I’ll be testing but for now, the star rating is now a 4.
Has some glaring issues and bugs. 3/5
By Hardcore Trek Tek
Why no pinch to ZOOM feature to zoom into websites?
No way to change font size or bold fonts/type.
When going through bookmark levels/folders the back buton doesn’t return you to a previous bookmarks page, but returns you back to the browser.
Won’t let you move/organise bookmarks, either.
I REALLY like and appreciate the sync-ing features and Pocket integration between mobile and desktop Firefox though.
But iOS Firefox needs more features/flexibility.
Much better on iOS, now, than when Mozilla first introduced thid on iOS.
The early versions of Firefox on iOS looked nothing like Firefox for full computing platforms.
This version looks and feels more like regular Firefox.
Still needs work and more updates!
Make media downloading available for Firefox browser
What’s going on? 4/5
Firefox on my desktop and iOS keeps crashing! I have uninstalled and reinstalled both numerous times!! Firefox is my favorite go to browser, but this is getting old and aggravating! 😣😖
Nice UI, but unstable. 3/5
I like the new interface. For me, it’s very intuitive. Although it could use a few improvements like remembering my place (folder) in the bookmarks when I open it again.
Ugh "recommendations" 4/5
I love Mozilla, hate the nags and recommendations
Strangest bug: bookmark start.duckduckgo and it creates a bookmark to regular duckduckgo Pinning the sit works correctly
Best browser, but not by much. 4/5
Firefox has to be my favorite browser for iOS.
That said... the new update leaves me a bit annoyed:
I loved having the new tab button on the URL bar, but it’s at the bottom now.
The “reader mode” button shouldn’t be on the URL bar either... I’ve hit it while browsing when I didn’t want to. I never even use it on purpose!
Lastly, PLEASE give us an option to disable this “Pocket” rubbish! It’s basically officially-supported clickbait; one of the worst additions to a browser add-on ever.
New update ruined it 3/5
Not only did the update make the app significantly slower but the new changed button layout seems inconvenient and unnatural.
built in dark mode is nice 5/5
By Tony Pichohnee
I like it
Bookmarks and top sites don’t work 1/5
Pinning sites to top sites and adding bookmarks aren’t working properly. Instead of a bookmark bringing me to a site it brings me to the google search for the site. Pinning to top sites just doesn’t work at all. Two fundamental browser functions that are broken. Deleted until fixed. Going back to chrome I guess.
Good update but... 4/5
By move think
Firefox has definitely improved its UI with the new update. I like the 'night mode' option that is much better now compared to the old that simply dimmed the brightness. There still needs to be a way to edit bookmarks and create folders to them... so that this iOS app is as useful as the desktop version. Also needs to add a way to use Find in PDFs.
Issue (as of Nov 11 2017): Sometimes images get messed up when scrolling in night mode.
It would be really cool if the 'containers' feature on the desktop Firefox was added to iOS's version; that would really set iOS's Firefox apart as a great browser. I realize iOS has restrictions so addons might not be allowed by Apple in Firefox; although, those would be really cool too. I hope the developers will take note of this review and I appreciate the open-source and transparent philosophy Firefox has supported over the years.
Lost all my tabs 1/5
Every time they have a major update, it closes all your tabs and you can’t get them back. Also, they send out updates a lot. Not every update did it, but after about the 3rd time, I gave up and went back to Safari.
Done with Firefox 1/5
You can stick your garbage browser where the sun don't shine.
Integration with password apps is terrible 2/5
I am a big fan of 1Password, and it integrates with browsers through the share menu, which unfortunately in Firefox it is 2 clicks away, which might not sound bad, but when you are used to having it available all the time, it feels slow and cumbersome.
Not interested in recommendations 4/5
The default home page has too much junk on it and I need the option to turn stuff off.
Pocket recommendations - Off
Frequently visited sites - Off
Home screen - blank - great
Update .. thanks for the follow up- just what I was looking for!
Great alternative to Safari! 5/5
This is a great alternative to safari for those interested in private browsing!
Love Photon and speed update ! 5/5
New look is great! And browser much smoother and faster. Great work!
Simply doesn’t work on iPhone 7S , even after 3 pw changes. 1/5
Simply doesn’t work, even after 3 pw changes. Will not let me login! I’ve spent too much time trying to get this to work because it used to be my favorite!
Removed Very Important Feature 5/5
Please bring back the addon support. Lost support for Lastpass and Bitwarden!
Oh, Snap! 5/5
By Raul Kirkpatrick
Love it! Better than ever, and the desk top browser even faster!
WoW... The new look is super awesome.
Really well laid out, easy to use and well refined!!!!!!
WELL DONE GUYS
Promising beta 5/5
I like Firefox sync and the new UI is nicely polished.
Fans of ad blockers should know that enabling Tracking Protection in settings also blocks most obvious content.
Top sites and bookmark options is still buggy 1/5
1. Top sites still merges sites in the same domain as one icon. Then I remove the top site and it brings forward another one of the the recently added and missing top sites as a new top site.
2. No ability to edit name of top sites... or simply use the user saved the name of same site. Just force-feeds a name and favicon.
3. Add a bookmark and it just simply adds it.... with no initial option to put it where you want it or name it what you want.
4. What happened to tab style option?
Not a big deal, but I personally liked having the option, and the scrolling list view opposed to the tile view.
5. Sites that when clicking a link need to load a separate page/tab by design dont load the link, just a blank page. Ie: link clicked, separate tab loads blank "about:blank" page.
Pros: Page load and rendering is all in all pretty darn good, but still not a default browser considering the above hindering usage issues.
Please bring the black status bar back 3/5
By YD Skydive
The sole reason to use Firefox over safari is the dark status bar that blends in with black bezel of the screen . Please bring the dark status bar back!!
Every website I visit is saved? 1/5
By Marlen Darlin
So regardless of the privacy settings I choose, you still want to put every single website I visit right back on the home screen? Uhm that will be NO. Good day.
Great New Photon Version 5/5
This new photon version is really fast. Also, I keep Firefox across all my devices, and operating systems including Windows, Linux, iOS and Macintosh, with the synch feature on. I value Mozilla’s effort to ensure users’ privacy unlike Google and other profit-oriented organizations
Settings, What settings? 2/5
No way to increase text size. No dark theme. But good enough for quick browsing—and that’s why it’s never going to be my primary browser.
THEY REMOVED FIND IN PAGE 1/5
I’ve been using Firefox on the iPhone for about 4 years.
I chose it because it was the had the ability to search for text in a webpage.
Unfortunately they have remove that great feature in the latest “upgrade”.
When I find a replacement I’ll post another review.
Had to Delete App, then Reinstall to Fix 1/5
Review as of 11/14/17 @ 4:55 PM EST
Unfortunately, the only way to get Firefox to work was to uninstall it and reinstall it. Unfortunately, lost some of my Bookmarks that I added on my iPad and that would never Sync to my Firefox Bookmarks across all used platforms - PC, iMac, etc. Ah, the joys of technology! Wish I could give it all up!!!

Cannot Open After Update
Have latest iOS 11.11.1 on my iPad Air 2. This latest Firefox Update doesn’t even open. Crashes every single time. Please help! Thanks!
Best browser option, could use some improvements on the margins 3/5
Definitely the best web browser I’ve found for iPad. I basically use my iPad as a laptop and thus use the Firefox app as a desktop browser. For the most part, it serves this purpose well. The browser is easy to use, it loads pages quickly, and it’s (admittedly limited) settings options are simple and straight-forward.
However there are a few settings that could be changed to improve the user experience:
1. Allow users to make desktop mode the default setting.
2. Allow users to set a default start-up page instead of opening all the tabs that were left open during the previous session.
3. Allow users to change the order of sites on the bookmarks and top sites pages.
4. Allow users to create folders or categories in the bookmarks menu
The design is awful.

That's pretty good
It will be awesome if you add chromecast on YouTube
Creo que les Debo disculpas espero y medissculpen undia nunca e tenido propblemas conesta aplicasion nose como esplicarlo pero es al go especial para mi
No add ons 1/5
By Old dubbin
I’d love to use Firefox with some ad blockers but nope.
