Not as good as android firefox 3/5
Thanks for allowing “always block trackers” mode
The GUI is dated, please make it look more like the android version.
Will apple allow firefox to implement the new webextensions on iOS?
Big problem. 1/5
Downloaded to my iPad. It immediately froze with the Firefox emblem in the middle of the screen. I can't open it or delete it. Absolutely useless. Would give it no stars if I could.
Missing a feature 4/5
3D Touch is a huge part of IOS. In Safari you’re able to 3D Touch a link hyperlink and open it in a new tab just by using 3D Touch. In Firefox you hold and then options come up and open in new tab is an option. Add in some more 3D Touch support and I’m hooked.
This is one of the worse apps I've ever had the displeasure of attempting to use. And I've been using a computer since a Mac plus.
Unbelievably bad...-10 stars.
It's like how can we piss off users the most was the design criteria...
Needs UI tweaking and Adblocking integration 4/5
By Isaac Gray
This is a product with tons of opportunities. The custom search engine script is amazing, and finally allows me to use a custom search query for a trustworthy engine (StartPage). This finally pulls me away from the control of Google. However, some tweaks would make it a better product on iPad and iPhone:
1) Add Adblocking ability from Firefox Focus. I realize that it is no small feat as Apple does not allow Firefox iOS to use the apple scripts for Adblocking, but adopting the block lists to the fully fledged app would be a gift to all.
Update: 9/22/2017. Thank you for adding tracking protection, and at different levels! This is a huge improvement for user privacy and I commend Mozilla for continuing to fight the good fight against tracking.
2) Make bookmarks editable (renamable) and their order organizable. Currently you can only delete or open them in a new tab as options. It's not a mature feature set.
3) Move the new tab button on the tab viewing page from the bottom left to the bottom right. This keeps you from having to travel the diagonal from the tab button (upper right) to the opposite (bottom left) corner, switching hands. Useful on iPad, VERY USEFUL for iPhone use, which is often one handed.
4) the pin to top sites feature only allows one link to the domain of choice. If I want to have a link to my Amazon Orders, that will take over the general Amazon.com link. Make this more like the safari Favorites tab! There's no need to reinvent the wheel. Customization, privacy, and autonomy should be the hallmark of Firefox. Not some gimmicky, clunky suggested websites. What if I visit an illicit website and don't want to worry about it poppin up in a new tab?? I get it, use private browsing mode, but the suggested websites panel should be an option you can disable.
Lots of potential, but the app needs some streamlining and more options for the user. Apple locks us down, but Mozilla can potentially set us free.
Crashes on launch. 🤕 Can't use it anymore 1/5
Nope.... still crashes 😱
If you have many tabs open, don't install this update.
Still crashes... (Version 9)
Back up to four stars. 4/5
EDIT: it took two months, but the worst problem has now been fixed and users can disable "go to copied". Thanks for listening. Back to four stars. Still buggy, though.
Add Ons Support 4/5
By Fayaz Linkon
Please start Add Ons support for iOS!
Way too frustrating...I give up!! 1/5
By S in Carson City NV
While I use the laptop version and am fairly happy with it, the mobile apps for IPhone & IPad are too frustrating to be useful! I can not log in despite resetting pass word numerous times. I tried contacting support, but that is also too frustrating because you just get stuck in a loop! And you can't get to support without logging in, which I can't do!! I'll just stick with Safari thank you!
Crashes Often and Deleted my Bookmarks 1/5
It kept crashing after the last update so I reinstalled the app and Firefox Sync didn't save any of the bookmarks I made using Firefox Mobile. This app is pathetic. I'm going back to Safari.
Update the UI 4/5
By Dave G. McKenzie
The app works like it should. Great private browsing experience. However, the UI doesn’t match modern iOS aesthetics. The icons in the app seem more like Android 4.0 on a Samsung device.
Needs more work 2/5
As it stands, you cannot use paste for most sign ins, and password fillers are mostly useless with Firefox. I wish they would put as much effort into the mobile as they do the desktop.
Version 9 is the Best Ever! 5/5
Everything I could ask for in a mobile browser. Great work Firefox mobile team 👍
Firefox Web Browser 5/5
The Firefox web browser is wonderful. It works fast and loads pages very quickly. I know Apple has strict rules about what can be used but I was wondering if you could consider implementing the use of add ons in the future. But I'm glad Firefox focuses on Privacy. And in general I consider Firefox to be the best web browser.🦊
Best update yet + solid browser 5/5
This is my go-to browser on my iPhone and iPad mini. I have tested 8 of them and kept the best 3 to use. GR updates - Firefox has the best stability, features and default settings. Mucho kudos to developers.
...tested >3 weeks
...in use 9 months total
App Update 1/5
App keeps saying an update is available . I updated it and it still keeps wanting to update.
Please find a way 3/5
To block Firefox from opening App Store multiple times while watching videos. Could there be a switch to not allow Firefox to open certain apps? Thank you
By Garrett Blondin
Works about 50% of the time for me, I can't even do a search on DuckDuckGo or minimize the app without it freezing up or crashing.
It crashes every time I click on sync devices with VoiceOver enabled 1/5
Please fix it
Great until it freezes 2/5
By Fly Thomas Fly
The app always freezes. Not shut down, but simply freeze for 10-20 seconds at a time
BETTER THAN SAFARI❗️ 5/5
I have used Firefox for years on PC's and never been disappointed. Adding it to my six iPads was a no brainer! The best browser out there, in my opinion.
Microsoft has worked hard to make Internet Explorer totally irrelevant and THE browser to DELETE. Adding Firefox to iPads makes them even better!
Crashes on launch 1/5
Useless. Will not open. Updated, no change; still crashes on launch.
By Matthew rich man
Room for improvement, but good the way it is. 5/5
Nice browser to use on iPhone, but I prefer the Windows version.
Better than others 5/5
By Sambasiva Reddy
Better than other browsers. Private browsing is a great feature.
Good browser option 5/5
Easy to use, stable, syncs all my favorites with my desktop version of Firefox, which I love.
You took a GREAT app and made it HORRIBLE! 2/5
By Bird doggin it
Why did you do that? What kind of anti-GEEKS do you have working for you? I used to be able to clean cache SELECTIVELY, quite easily, with one touch...now, the app is SLOW, often unresponsive, and is clearly the fault of dating mining and cache collecting! I wag my finger at you and say, clean up this app!
Best browser on IOS 5/5
If you like me and think that safari is garbage... iv tried every browser, and Firefox is the best working... on speed ,privacy , and interface.
Highly recommend it!
Very Frustrating 2/5
By Don't look any further
I'm a great fan of Firefox but find their "support" extremely frustrating. There is a forum but questions there can go unanswered and from there they fall into a Firefox black hole.
Secondly as far as I understand you can not sync you bookmarks can NOT be synced between your iOS devices and a Mac. That's ridiculous. If I am wrong about this I'd like someone to correct me. But there's no Mozilla support person that is available.
This all started with me wanting to know how to create bookmark folders in the iOS app.
Spent 1.5 hours trying to find the answers. Too bad. No one is home at Mozilla.
Best browser! 5/5
Wow this UI is vastly superior to safari ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
By snail 🐌
Could you make the app open any slower?
Good & Bad 3/5
I really wish you would allow private browsing by default, and Focus is not the answer. Brave really has it down, you can turn things on and off as you wish, better control over defaults, without having to make two browsers.
I love Firefox on Desktop but the mobile version leaves me frustrated.
That said, it's pretty fast and loads some pages other mobile browsers won't.
Not a fan of all the menus to get to controls or settings 1/5
Not a fan how everything it feels like in the bottom menu is hidden behind a button however , there is hope in Firefox focus I feel like they nailed putting everything in a translucent bar at the bottom if they copies that and altered it a bit to fit the Firefox browser I would rate it a 5 out of 5
Where's my review? It doesn't post immediately? Why do they can decide if they want to post it or not?
Firefox is just plain rubbish 1/5
The Firefox developers need to go back to basics. This version is just plain rubbish. Crashes on opening. Hangs often. Slow very slow.
I 2nd the motion of CUMBERSOME!! 2/5
Have had to use Mozilla Firefox for college tests, and in the past I really loved Firefox!! Buuut, update after update it became more and more flustered with changes and readjustments--- that I reluctantly moved to Google. Either way Google or Chrome, now, always seems much simpler and less difficult in naviagtion and settings which I use--- ALOT!!!
I hate Bing/ IE which always looks as tho I am inviting SPAM since it is biased to show too many adds in a query.
Keeps getting worse 1/5
This new "Open link in a new tab" feature has somehow disabled the ability to quote posts in an online gaming forum I frequently visit. I've reported this problem for a while now but have gotten no response. Now I just use safari. I might check out google chrome also. It's not the website either because like I said. Safari works fine.
Runs everything other browsers don't 5/5
By David Drai Descartes
Seems less bloated than others and runs pretty quick.
The whole point of FireFox is customization. 1/5
Mobile FF doesn't support plugins, can't enable adblock to evade cancerous pop-ups/pop-unders or embedded ads. Worthless.
The new update is horrible 2/5
The app worked perfectly and I loved it till this update it loads slow now new tabs take a solid minute to load where as before it was almost instantly there's unnecessary choices added for sites to go to it's cluttered and annoying the old style was sleek easy to navigate smooth and most of all swift now I'm wanting to uninstall from my iPad
EZ 2 Dwnload & Set Up! 5/5
I prefer Firefox over Chrome and IE
Bad Functionality 1/5
I am stuck with this app and I can not do anything... No even uninstall or open it, so what do I do? It appears in my screen like when its updating but doesn't do anything!
Just keeps crashing 1/5
It just keeps crashing
Love it 5/5
Been using Firefox for years and I got it the day it came out on iOS. I really love it and only wish it had one thing that is really starting to irritate me like crazy. I wish I had the ability to 'Open in Firefox' from other apps. That's the only request I ask for, other than that I love it.
By g4g@gm April 2013 Cars4
First two star rating! 2/5
So I gave it a two star rating because it's not that bad for a one star but it is also not that great. I pretty much have the same critiques as the majority, but I have yet to see them say anything about the tabs and being able to drag them to reorganize them. That would be a big help as I like to keep tabs constantly open, but because I can not move them around I end up closing them by accident.
Needs improvements 4/5
Coming from Chrome and looking for a more private experience, unfortunately I think Chrome still has the better UX. It's small stuff but it could really streamline the experience, like opening tabs on the bookmark bar. Or syncing history over multiple devices sorted by multiple devices. Hell, as insignificant as this, I appreciate that chrome's QR code reader can be accessed by 3D touching that app rather than having to totally pull up Firefox.
I haven't experienced stability issues yet, but I haven't put this application through the ringer.
Garbage now 1/5
Used to be the best browser but now Firefox is complete trash. Avoid and get a better browser.
What a joke. 1/5
Cannot rename or edit bookmarks. You have to edit bookmarks from a Desktop computer, then sync them to mobile.
No easy way to view bookmarks. Why? You cannot open bookmarks when looking at the current tab, you have to open the tab switcher, then open up a menu, then view bookmarks. Not the icon that looks like a book (no, thats the "Reading" button). The star button hidden on the popup menu hidden on the tab switcher screen is where the bookmarks are hidden.
Also, why not have some sort of adblock? Safari and Opera both block ads, both sync bookmarks, and both let me edit bookmarks. Why would I want to use Firefox instead of Safari or Opera?
This is a poor browser, from developers that don't seem to know what they are doing, all coming from a DYING company.
