Nasty update that doesn’t work with iOS 14.7. Massive battery drain very badly.
Uses Its Own DNS Resolver No Matter What 2/5
Newest version 3/5
New problem - different website images do not show.
Unable to to work at home now with Firefox 1/5
By keith scheeler
Try to go to my work site and blocked finally get there and try to print but a Popup blocker is enabled so can’t print. Maybe ask before you do something stupid that made me change my default browser!
Shortcuts and Library are gone 1/5
I just updated to version 35 for iOs, and the Library icon has disappeared, along with all my bookmark shortcuts. I added new shortcuts, but they don’t show up on the home page or anywhere. I thought I would really like being able to add bookmarks to folders, but without being able to access the Library I can’t do this, or edit my bookmarks. Fix this please....
Bookmarks tab freezes app 3/5
By S. IB
Latest update to version 35.0 on IOS for iPad Pro 12.9” Bookmarks tab accessed in any fashion freezes entire window and app, not allowing opening of any bookmark, adding any, or closing the window to return to Firefox main window. Necessitates quitting app and clearing from desktop, re-opening to use at all. Bookmarks just not working and freezes app.
I DON’T LIKE THE NEW SMALLER PINS!!! 3/5
I HATE THE NEW SMALLER PINS. I wear glasses and the larger ones were just the right size. I went into settings and deselected STUDIES and the tiny pins are still there. How do I go back to the regular sized pins?
A great approach to internet browsing 5/5
Human centered browser. I believe people should, by default, not be tracked by governments or business. I like Firefox’s aggressive protection settings. I also find it useable and flexible. Excellent work.
Latest update. 2/5
ON MY PC I Hate it. to much added to it. If u change the home page it covers up the personal settings if u need to import your bookmarks from a saved file have not figured how to yet. Windows edge takes over lost hours of work on this
TRYING TO GO BACK TO THE GOOD OLD FIREFOX BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW HOW
Bookmarks/instructions meaningless; mobile GUI awkward 2/5
I will keep Firefox around for when Apple ☞ RUINS ☜ Safari in iOS/iPadOS 15. Be forewarned: find a fallback.
As other reviewers have noted, bookmarks handling is inefficient and puerile. Four folders, no purpose, no worthwhile instructions. “Shortcuts” (Favorites?) primitive, tacky. “Menu Bar”? Where?
Ask for support. Answer: go see the forum. (There you’ll find many others have the same question with no good answer.)
Annoying interface, doesn’t sync with web 1/5
Constant pop ups, too many questions, too many email notifications. Very annoying browser and interface. Will not use after transferring my old passwords off of.
Cam’t close tabs etc. 2/5
By Cine Ron
- Still can’t close tabs on top bar
- Cookies keep reappearing after deletion
- Settings menu tales up full screen width making it impossible to dismiss menu without backtracking to root
- Confusing non-intuitive bookmarks system of folders”
Malware Pocket shows ads on the homepage by default 1/5
It should ask first, not make people go through settings.
Then, there's no way to have 0 rows for TopSites. I want to start with a blank page, but you don't focus on what people want.

Best overall browser for iOS 5/5
For my needs, Firefox is now the best browser on iOS, period. What am I looking for in a browser? In no particular order:
• Available on multiple platforms (iOS and Linux in this case).
• Syncs bookmarks and passwords (etc.) seamlessly between those platforms.
• Rock solid and stable. I know that others report issues from time to time, but I am unable to replicate those issues.
• Takes privacy very seriously. Not part of the surveillance industrial complex. (Chrome and Edge are complete non-starters in this regard.)
Now that the home landing page has been de-uglified AND there is a full-featured bookmarking system in place, I have pretty much run out of complaints.
Thanks, Mozilla, for plugging away at the iOS version of FF. It’s pretty damned good.
Lagging behind safari 2/5
Tried many times it just won’t save passwords. Have to use “strict” mode to block any ads. No night mode in reader view. Annoying to have to go through settings then data management just to delete cookies.
Lost all of my open tabs after update 3/5
Just updated to version 35.0 and when I opened the app all of my open tabs were gone. Very annoying... 😡
Unusable keyboard popup 1/5
Some idiots decided that the was to make Firefox’s ios page search better was to add it to the keyboard and turn that into a weird location-dependent popup, so that a credit-card-size mini-window throws itself between you and any form you’re trying to fill out, hiding the form and requiring you to peck delicately with a pinky to choose the keyboard and then to select letters in it. Fnckwits.
And they wonder why users resist updates. This app and these developers are why.
Very buggy tabs 2/5
Hitting command t opens two tabs not one. Web pages are split between two tabs -> On the first tab I search with google nothing loads. I decide to open a new tab with command-t, two new tabs open - one blank, and one with the previous google search with the page loaded. What a mess.
Search Bar 3/5
By [unimaginative name]
I enjoy using Firefox, but there’s something that’s been bothering me for a while. The search bar in the tabs section disappeared a couple updates ago, and since then I’ve been having a difficult time with the app.
I have to manually scroll through the tabs section to find the tab I need, and the app kicks me out regularly when I do this. Either that or I have to check each tab individually to see if that’s the tab I need. It’s tiring and annoying. Please bring back to search bar for tabs.
This app should be on macos
Studies and experiments 1/5
Studies and experiments should be opt IN not opt out.
If anything there should be a prompt after updating which gives you the option.
New tab 1/5
Love the new update with smaller bookmarks off the new tab screen. Remove the feature where it pulls up the keyboard automatically when you open a new tab. It completely blocks me from selecting tabs I already have opened. If I open a new tab I do not want to be forced to start typing a URL. I just want and need a blank page like it always gave me.
It’s just an extra unneeded step I have to take to click off to do what I actually want which is “not type” it’s to pick a bookmark of shortcuts or open my bookmarks tab. I’m sick of having to click the left arrow to force it away. Please
Remove this ridiculous step.
Best second to safari 3/5
Like the updated new page look. I still find the tabs view icon weird and out of place cause it looks like it’s being pinched.
Come on, now, it’s been two years since they added this OS feature 3/5
I switched Firefox to my default browser on everything except my iPad. The only thing keeping me from making it my default on iPad as well is the lack of multi window support.
Seriously, it’s been two years since they added that feature to iPadOS, and Firefox still hasn’t implemented it!
Ad blocker doesn’t work on popular video sites. Offers nothing new or unique. Pointless.
What happened to this browser? 3/5
Hangs/crashes very often at the moment. iPad Pro 10.5” 14.6.
It consumes a lot of battery as well.
Also bring in some features from Safari, like the ability to take a screenshot that covers the entire page/article (save as pdf)..
Not displaying images 1/5
By Record button
Sites are not displaying images and content.
Bookmarks really needs to be decluttered 3/5
there are four different spots for bookmarks which is three too many IMO as a webstack developer.
If you want people to utilize the sync feature more you need to cleanup how bookmarks arw organized.
Additionally, it would be nice to see support for some extension use in the future as well. I have been using firefox on PC for over 10 years and wanted to give some feedback, hopefully it's put to use.
History not saving 2/5
History isn't saving and theres no feature for searching terms in your history
NEEDS Multiple Window Support on iPadOS! 4/5
I like Firefox, it’s by far my preferred on anything without Safari, and sometimes better than Safari (though Safari is very power efficient). Anyways, I can’t give it a real chance on my iPad since it doesn’t allow me to open multiple windows. My workflow (productivity and otherwise) depends on more than one browser window. Given that Firefox is made by a non-profit and is open source, I’d be eager to switch (at least for a little while) if I could have multiple windows.
V. 34 Update Ruined It | Google AMP is here 2/5
I’ve been using FireFox as my default browser on iOS for a long time for one specific reason — FireFox didn’t load Google AMP.
Google AMP is a plague — sites aren’t centered, the Find function doesn’t work, article updates aren’t always shown, it’s anti-competitive, etc etc. Google is simply usurping content from its creators, taking their revenue, taking their analytics, and stripping sites of their branding. And publishers are forced to comply or they won’t be shown on Googles news carousel. Google doesn’t let users turn this off, so the only choice is to use a browser that doesn’t support it.
FireFox was the only good browser that disabled Google AMP by default. Now with version 34, AMP is here. If I click a Reddit link, I can’t see anything. Comments are blocked by an “Open in Reddit | Continue” overlay that I can’t interact with because AMP blocks the “continue” button.
I always saw FireFox as a company that prioritized ethics and user experience. I’m extremely disappointed that you would suddenly change and support a platform that makes Google money at the expense of publishers and user experience. I will no longer use FireFox on my iPhone.
Stuff that doesn’t work 2/5
Scan to sign in I have a iPhone 12 promax and there’s no such thing as it in settings congratulations
Failure on all features 1/5
Sync with desktop browser virtually does not work. Most of the time it’s not in the list of available devices.
Search does not sync.
Feature wise it’s total afterthought, UI is inconsistent.
So it all amounts to empty promises of a desktop counterpart
100vh handling is bad in Firefox mobile 4/5
When you scroll up or down in Firefox it causes content to shift around.
Mobile Chrome & Safari no longer do this.
Inconsistently displaying images 1/5
Both my Mac and iPhone versions of Firefox have started to intermittently stop displaying all images.
I can't close tabs once I open them anymore. It's like the size of the tab has become too small and even with my pencil I can't get it to register that I'm trying to close it. Then I have to just open more tabs and it gets even smaller. Super frustrating. There are other small quality of life problems with this app' but this is the biggest one.
UI Update is Bad 2/5
I wanted to give the update a chance and I have. I do not like the change to the UI. It neither feels good nor looks good. The keyboard when opening new tabs is more annoying than useful, especially when I opened that new tab because I wanted to reopen an accidentally closed tab. Almost every UI change I just have to ask why? Why ruin something that was both good and functional? If I could go back to the previous version, I would because this one really isn’t good or great.
About the only reason I use this browser is that Safari started messing with my tab order and chrome as a really stupid “close all” button that is easy to accidentally press and one of the shortest “undo” timings to fix the issue. So, the app is better than the alternatives but made distinctly worse by recent changes…So, falling in line with every other browser I’ve had to use.
It’s really good!!! 5/5
It’s a good app because it blocks ads and it keeps your privacy safe I love this app 10/10😁
Essential for iOS/Windows user 5/5
Syncing and sharing from iOS Firefox to Windows and back is incredibly essential to my life. I can send tabs where I want them easily, which is only a little different from synced history/tabs, really, but is more targeted and makes all the difference. I can then share these links out to whomever on my iPhone. It’s very reliable. Also! In FF on iOS if you long press the hamburger at the upper right it brings up the Share Sheet right away! ..the same with being immediately able to copy a URL with a long press on the address bar and with close tab/new tab on the tabs button, reload without tracking protection, forward and back lists…! Amazing! Small things that save a lot of “work” in aggregate. Also, request desktop site still works well.
Can’t start. Unusable. Please fix.
Isn’t life tough enough already? 1/5
They fix what’s not broken and leave the broken things unfixed. It’s like if you have a car with mechanical problems so you try to fix it by getting a new paint job. I’m astounded by the amount of work somebody must have put into this new update only to come up with something worse than they already had.
One suggestion 4/5
Unless iOS mandates that you only add the Pocket Sharing button to the iOS share sheet, it would be convenient to press the Pocket button directly from the hamburger menu. This way you have only two taps to share your present page instead of two and wait for share sheet and then third tap to call pocket.
Latest version keeps on crashing. I have never had this problem before until this newest version. It’s basically unusable.
Going back to DDG 3/5
Tabs don't close. Why, Firefox? Touching the tabs on newest version only creates, doesn’t close, tabs.
Not on my phone 3/5
I have all these apps including Facebook that is not on my phone. I have not another Apple product and I have been warned of phishing, malware and even identity theft.
I have no issues.
Used to be good. 3/5
I loved Firefox for ever but I hate it’s new update. Now it is hard to use, download and customize and downloads take for ever. And it ruined it’s charm for me. Now I also mean Firefox on the desk top to. I have always loved Firefox until now.
