Not as good as the desktop version!!! 2/5
-1 star cause I can’t install add-ons. -1 star cause many websites are broken using Firefox. -1 star cause mostly images won’t load. I keep it around cause on my computer Firefox is awesome. Also I appreciate the ability to sync bookmarks. That’s where the 2 stars come from. When Brave figures out how to sync I’m probably done across platform. Please make Firefox great again :(
Good but too buggy 2/5
I recently left Chrome because of Google’s recent policy changes and am enjoying Mozilla a lot more.
But wow, I cannot seem to make a full change on mobile with this browser. This is utterly garbage and it seems this has been an ongoing issue with no fix in sight.
Night Mode is awesome but it has a few bugs such as discoloring pictures. It doesn’t affect videos, only pictures. Which, makes sense on the surface because it’s changing the colors on the page, but something needs to be done to improve this.
The more pressing issue is screwing with the layout of a page when you’re trying to read. Think news article or Wikipedia. It is impossible to get through the whole thing without quitting because as you scroll, everything gets jumbled up. You can’t see where things are to press them. Going back and coming back doesn’t help.
It’s a mess and it needs to be fixed. This is unbelievably bad.
Still, Mozilla is better than Google as a company and Firefox is a better experience than Safari, so I still use it but I need this to be better before I give it 5 stars it really deserves.
One of my favorite features is being able to send tabs to my devices. You have no idea how great that is.
Also, Mozilla, you guys should look into adding a password generator in the mobile and desktop version like Google did for Chrome. It’s really great and much needed.
WTH are my synced bookmarks 2/5
By Delayed Reaction
Whoa whoa whoa, suddenly my synced bookmarks aren’t available. I know my devices are still linked because the tabs and history’s are still available and I can see everything fine on my pixel but not my iPad
EDIT: several weeks later and the issue still hasn’t been fixed. Lowering rating
Clear history option is hidden deep within settings 1/5
If you want to clear last days history, it’s easy. If you want to clear all history it’s hidden in a different place deep within settings. This dark pattern is a deliberate decision.
Slower. Bugs 1/5
By Kappa Face no Space
Newer versions are slower and buggy. Older versions were quicker and snappy. Requested a desktop version of a site and it crashed. crashes constantly and bugs out even when doing basic functions like watching videos
bookmarklet can't add to bookmarks 3/5
The tracking protection breaks so many sites that FF is mostly useless. FF is broken from the last update. The quality of coding now is horrible!
Latest Update Broke Night Mode 3/5
Until this updated, loved using Firefox, but the latest update broke night mode. Now every time I go to Firefox, the night mode is enabled, but not working. I have to continually turn it off then turn it back on.
App crashes upon opening 2/5
By Dr Greenfield
I want to use this app but it can take many successive tries to keep the app open. Just now, it crashed 4 times. Very disappointing since it could be a great option to get away from google.
Firefox the best 5/5
Firefox is great it is so easy to use and protects us at every turn I wish google could take care of us like Firefox watches over us thank you so much
love ya guys keep fixing bug and improving 4/5
title says it all. i had trouble with the bookmarks but now with last update its so much better! i deal with tons of bookmarks so super helpful guys!
one thing tho with bookmark. be a tad more convenient if we can choose to add new bookmarks to different folders. instead of going to the mobile bookmarks file and just change the location that way. thats about all i can think of tho. love organizing the tons of bookmarks i now can with mobile app!
It’s finally my all-day browser 5/5
In 18.1, Firefox finally allows for proper management of bookmarks — creating, editing, moving, deleting. And with that (plus some new features and a huge list of bug fixes) it is now the best browser for iOS, in my opinion.
Face it, privacy is not a big goal of most browsers (especially Google Chrome, whose business model is all about surveillance of its customers). Firefox makes privacy a priority. For that alone we should appreciate and use it. But now that it has feature parity with its competitors, this is a no-brainer. Great job, Mozilla.
Every update makes it worse 1/5
By Disallusioned user
I have vision issues. Last update does not take into account that people change their fonts for larger one and bold them for contrast. My bookmarks are unreadable as they are larger than the alloted space and overwrite above and below. Next update that makes this worse will be the end of Firefox on my phone and desktop.
Truly laborious process 1/5
Could you make it any harder to download and sync? You are worse than Apple! I’m going to regret the fact that I am doing this...
Good for watching porn
Many issues 1/5
EDIT July 12: Another small update, no fix for any of the issues mentioned.
EDIT July 8: Several months since its introduction and many times the issue has been reported, night mode is still unusable after a few minutes and causes the entire screen to become a garbled and unreadable mess. I appreciate the additions to the developer log that I didn’t even know existed on mobile but there might be more pressing issues.
I’ve used this app for years and it seems to continue to get more buggy with each release. My first and main tab is Wikipedia, and so most of the bugs I find are experienced on that site. Whenever the app crashes (which happens very frequently, especially when switching from another app back to Firefox) it sends me to a completely random page from my browsing history on that tab, sometimes pages I visited last week. Night mode is great when it’s usable for a few minutes before causing the display to show a mess of distorted lines, partially or fully destroyed images, and various parts of the page being displayed on top of each other making it unreadable and impossible to tell where you are on the page. The night mode bug has existed for as long as I can remember night mode being a feature, while the flashback-on-crash issue seems to have only cropped up in the past two or three months.
Great app. Better 3D touch please! 5/5
I love the 3D touch on the windows/tabs square to close the current tab or open a new tab. However there's a significant delay between the touch and the menu deploying. In chrome this action is much faster and feels a lot snappier. Small feature but would feel nice and responsive. I can imagine ux arguments against this, though.
Kicks me out the second I open it. 1/5
By FOLLOW CANADIANBEAR ON TWITCH
I’ve tried doing everything and it keeps on kicking me out after I enter the app. My phone isn’t slow either, it’s an iPhone XR.
No bookmark bar 1/5
Takes too long to get to my bookmarks, so I’m still stuck using Safari which is the only one that has a bookmark bar.
issues with requesting desktop sites in recent version 3/5
requesting desktop versions of sites doesn't seem to work in the latest version (specifically desktop twitter), even when specifically going to a non-mobile url before setting the option. please look into this or, better yet, just let us manually set our user agent. will switch rating to 5 stars if this is fixed.
What an oddity... 5/5
By K B Tidwell
I mean that in a good way. Mozilla is the only company I'm using an app from that actually lets you know what they improved instead of the stupid, "We squashed a lot of bugs!"
Yeah, I go to the trouble to check to see what was fixed hoping I'll see idiotic non-information.
Inoperative Image switch 2/5
Firefox has until now been able to suppress images, which is why its used here. Latest update won't suppress images as before. Hopefully that capability is restored soon.
Night mode always resets to day mode even when on 2/5
Night mode will be turned on. As soon as I close the app and open again the night mode is still turned on but now it doesn’t work until I switch it off and back on again. Really annoying and I can’t stand it. Please fix ASAP before I just switch to another bowser that doesn’t mess up such an important feature.
Stopped syncing bookmarks 2/5
By iphone disaster
I’ve submitted this issue several weeks ago to Mozilla and not one response has occurred. I see more users adding similar complaints since the new update where the iPhone 6 no longer shows or syncs bookmarks. Things were working great until the recent update. I absolutely do not want to go back to chrome but I need my bookmarks synced.
UPDATE: Since it appears I cannot write a fresh review , I am having to update this one. The newest release, appears to resolve the bookmarks missing issue from the apple phones. Thank god since I was going to jump back to chrome if it did not. Not something I wanted to do. Thanks!
How can this be a Firefox app, when it browses with Google? Firefox in name only. Still uses Google so useless to me.
A big reason... 2/5
A big reason I switched from safari and google chrome was for security reasons. Firefox (for the most part) solves my issues regarding privacy and security. Now, Firefox mobile has a night mode that is atrocious. I will not use it until it is fixed. Everything becomes inverted in color... that isn’t might mode that’s just an inversion affect. Until that is fixed/dealt with. I’m using DuckDuckGo app
Love it, less taps to get to synced tabs would be nice 5/5
By La le
I use Firefox on my iPhone, iMac and windows 10 machines. Often I’m reading on the desktop and want to pick up where I left off on my iPhone. Tabs at synchronized which is nice but a few less taps/clicks to get to the synchronized tabs would be nice. The way safari does it is slick but not a safari fan.
Or maybe a mirrored mode where currently open tabs between all devices stay in sync vs. individually restoring synced tabs. As I read and close tabs, those tabs are closed on the desktop, iPhone etc. That would be cool to help me with research projects where I often have many tabs open and knock them out one by one.
Keep up the great work.
Firefox SEND doesn't work and I can't find a fix! 1/5
I am using an iPad and tried 5 different times to use the Firefox SEND feature but every time I get the following message -"The operation couldn't be completed (webkitblobresource error 1)".
I researched this using Google to try and resolve the problem with no luck.
I tried to find a way to contact Mozilla Firefox support but again, no luck!
WhatsApp Web! 1/5
I use to be able to open WhatsApp web on my mobile app for my business number. After this new updates, when I request for desktop sit, it takes me back to the mobile site. Kindly fix it.
Recent Changelog is 👌🏼👌🏼 5/5
Been using this app for a while but the recent changelog is what inspired me to leave a 5 star review. Constant improvement.
v 18.0 (iOS 12.1.4) – 2019 July 06 3/5
– Individual Website data clearing (Jul 06)
– (not yet tested for v18) Firefox Sync – Logins / Passwords changes from other devices do NOT update the Logins / Passwords on iOS.
– Keyword Search bookmarks - Feature worked on v16, removed on v17, still missing on v18; this feature appears to have been axed - sad, as this was a differentiating feature from Safari.
Attempting a keyword search on v18 initiates a search with your default search engine instead.
Additionally, tapping the bookmark on v18 initiates a search with the entire URL as query; better than v17 when nothing would happen.
– "Open new tab" behavior – No way to have new tabs always appear at the end of the tab list, they will always appear next to the current related set of tabs - it would be great to have this option available as is on desktop.
– Great design, bolder and easier on the eyes than default Safari.
Problem with revamped Desktop Mode feature 5/5
By Muctar D.
Sites that redirect to a mobile subdomain will keep in mobile mode until manually switching back (by clicking a link into desktop mode) and putting the toggle there. (Example: Wikimedia sites like Wikipedia, Facebook)
Awful mobile version 1/5
Completely useless, pages are unintelligible and thumbnails are always choppy and garbled. Uninstalled it after several days.
Love it but.. 3/5
So I like to browse I like to check out pictures and read.. but it’s tough to do when the browser has trouble loading the page properly.. I usually see garbled text and pictures with the color wiped out or all the same color.. the issue is so often I find myself going back to safari just to finish the mission.. sad cause I wanna love it so much
I love Firefox 5/5
Love love love Mozilla Firefox 😍😘❤️
Features they advertise don’t exist. 1/5
Primarily the ability to edit and move bookmarks. Uninstalled and reinstalled the browser to make sure I had the latest version 17.3.
Their instructions show how you can edit and move bookmarks to new folders. Whenever I try this, following their instructions, it does not work. No edit link ever appears in the bookmark folders, allowing you to move it to another folder, I only get a pop up menu, without the stated ability.
Their bookmark management was their Achilles heel, which is why I was excited to see them finally address those problems. Perhaps this feature is scheduled to be added, if so don’t promote it until it actually works.
This is the worst version of this app I have ever used in my life. Obviously there are others that are having great success! I congratulate you. But for me it simply doesn’t work. It doesn’t load right, the placeholders are in the wrong place, pages are skewed. I love my iPhone. And I can use DuckDuckGo and an extension of privacy and a VPN and it’s fine. I was very hopeful for Firefox as I haven’t used it for sometime but it’s just not right.
Used to be 5 stars 3/5
5 stars until they broke being able to remove data by website. Option is still in the menu, but you click delete, nothing happens. Sent a support ticket weeks ago and got no response, so have to ding them 2 stars for that. Other than that, this is one of my favorite apps.
Clear browser history 4/5
I have lost the ability to clear “everything “ history. Only have options for “today “, “yesterday “ & “ last hour “. It would be nice to have that ability again; to erase “ everything “!! Would be very awesome.
Mozilla Firefox should merge with DuckDuckGo , you both have same ideas and purpose in a sense..
want to love it, won’t stop crashing 3/5
By jimmy unlucky
i was very excited to switch over from chrome to firefox. final piece of the puzzle was downloading this app for my phone. love the design and few of the browser on iOS, however it crashes every 10 minutes or more. extremely frustrating. i won’t be using the browser until this is fixed.
I think Bayern will win the 19/20 season
Takes too long to launch and it has just crashed on me FIVE times in a row.
Very nice but some problems 3/5
By 🎮Not Ur Avg Gamer🎮
I initially wrote an extremely positive review on this app but that was awhile ago and now my opinions have changed.
I use Firefox for literally every device I own and have had no problems but this app is the only one that seems to have a problem. Upon shutting out the app and reopening it, if I was doing something where progress doesn’t save (e.g, watching a video, typing something, and even switching from one app to back to Firefox) the app will shutdown before I am able to recover my progress. It will continue to do so until I reinstall the app or spam click incognito until the app can get its bearings together and attempt to recover the lost progress.
I’ve had this problem for months now and it becomes annoying when I need to search something but am unable to do so because of this problem. I have started to use google and even safari much more than this as it provides the same as this app and doesn’t crash every time I open a new application. I really hope this can be fixed in some future update. I’ve read some reviews and a lot of people have complained about the same bug for awhile now which means that this bug is the least of your priorities?
Want the privacy, but too buggy to use 3/5
By Gallus Moser
Pros - privacy and syncing tabs/bookmarks between desktop and mobile
Cons - can’t save images half the time, double tapping or tapping the same area ONLY zooms in or out, can’t highlight words, half the time is laggy or doesn’t load the page, tabs take forever to open and sometimes randomly close. QR code scanner (that I’ve never use) blocks important controls like sharing the page, etc.
I was so excited to have a Chrome alternative, but this isn’t it.
Great browser 5/5
By coonass fisherman
Like the app once I figured it out. Combined w DUCK Duck Go it does what I need with greater privacy than what I have been using for years - Google. Never go back
Whatever it takes to bring Google down. 5/5
Firefox will do!
This is not like Firefox on your desktop. The privacy functions are shockingly lacking. Safari has many more features available and it isn't even close!
No option to automatically clear history. No option to always use private mode. No ability to not use a poorly designed home screen listing your top sites (and no way to turn top sites off). These are basic features, but for some reason, Firefox refuses to let you change the behavior.
Ok browser for IOS, but lacks basic privacy features.
Keeps crashing 1/5
Fix issue and will change rating. Constantly crashing and going back to phone home screen.
