Missing basic settings. 2/5
By A Guy Who Runs
Lacks basic privacy and security settings. Want to disable third-party cookies, too bad, setting missing.
Etc... Etc... Etc...
Almost any setting required for safe browsing is not available. Complete failure.
What has Happened? 3/5
For whatever reason, in both mobile and desktop versions of Firefox, there is less accessibility to websites.
Sites that used to interface well with Firefox no longer do so, forcing me to copy the URL and use Safari or other browser instead.
Why the problem?
Last update has messed up logins get this... put the wrong password in on one and it will log you out from what ever tab you have open ad are logged into. I have been trashed by twitter. I can' take much more of this I need a WORKING browser in iPad because my computer crashed and went belly up.
Nice Browser but... 3/5
By To the bitten fruit, Apple!
It allows Google, E-Bay, Amazon, and other Sites to store permanent Cookies, even in private Browsing mode.
Do YoU wAnT tO AdD a SeARcH PrOviDeR? 1/5
Persistent popup to add search providers prevents me from viewing my search results on any page with search options now, no option to turn it off either. Support site lost my password so I can’t even get help with it. Trash. UNINSTALL
One flaw 4/5
I'm use an iPhone we, and it will not let me delete my bookmarks. Whenever a drag left on the bookmark, it opens a delete bar, but then when I tap on it, it will not work correctly to delete the bookmark
Good browser 5/5
If you can’t load images, uninstall and reinstall.
Great at but.. 3/5
Recently I have had issues with the app not being able to launch and when I restart it I’m able to get it open. Though if you hit the search bar the app crashes
Love it. But slow launch 4/5
By Hop on slop
Love it but takes 20 seconds to launch and sometimes even forget what I opened it to search for.
Other times, I’ll end up typing in the search bar once it does load, realizing later that I replaced a previously open tab with the new session... and this is the main problem. As the app opens, cannot please show as soon as it BEGINS to launch, that their is already a webpage populated in the url, and/or a screenshot of the page it was on when last closed or exited from... or even just open on a new we page either when the app is relaunched after closed, as well as when it is just left running in the background.
Otherwise, I’ll always just open safari because it already does all of the things above... quick and I’m sure to never replace a previous session.
Love it 5/5
I can do stuff privately and see trending articles
Firefox Joins The Big Leagues 1/5
And sells its soul to do so. No control over privacy settings. It is “naive mode” or “paranoid mode”. This is a symptom of a much larger problem.
Had high hopes..... 2/5
The layout gave me a headache, felt very very clustered. Had to delete
Built in adblocker is awesome 5/5
Content blocking was the only reason I was using safari before. Now if only Apple allows the default browser to be changed to Firefox...
Ah yes 5/5
Simply love it. Along with all iterations.
Number 1 Since College 2005 5/5
By Detroit ULTIMATE KINKSTER
Best most Secure and so much more this Program gets better Yearly! Gives me price of Mind. Oh did I mention it’s Free! Loving 🥰 LIFE!!
Was amazing but now it's garbage 2/5
I used to love this all but now most of my pages show up as garbled gibberish because it keeps loading things over others! And I know it's not the websites because it worked perfectly in Safari. Please fix this IMMEDIATELY.
Use to love 3/5
Been a long term loyal user of Mozilla since the early days. I hate to say it but it’s old switching between Mozilla and internet explorer. Half the websites I frequently visit are not compatible with Mozilla. I’m saying hello to chrome as it’s compatible with everything.
Impossible to clear history 2/5
I spent 20 min looking for an option to clear my history & the only way I found was individual URL deletion . Unacceptable. I don’t trust incognito mode . Google it if you believe is bullet proof .
Erratic Page render issues 3/5
I get a lot of crazy page mis-rendering. Maybe it’s the sites with poor coding but it happens all over the place. Issues Safari never has on the same pages. It makes some pages unreadable.
By 6404 9029 43
It’s a good browser, but I just upgraded to the latest version and lost EVERYTHING. All bookmarks, history, hundreds of tabs. Ughhhhhh. I had so many sites and content I needed to add to my favorites and now it’s all gone.
No advertisement blocking 1/5
In iPad/iOS it is not possible today 2019 stopping advertising windows... too bad ... bye ciao Firefox
Potentially the best browser 3/5
Looking to replace chrome, I switched over to Firefox. Have used and loved Firefox for years before, and love the desktop version. But there’s bugs in the mobile version that get so annoying. One in particular, when choosing something from a drop down, it won’t let you select anything then your stuck with the drop down window repeatedly opening until refreshing the page or restarting the browser.
No longer able to save image files from browser 3/5
For whatever reason, images downloaded via Firefox browser do not actually get downloaded in photo album.
Also, gif files do not get saved as animated gif.
Please fix those and I would use it as my every day browser.
Only saving grace at the moment is that it syncs with all firefox browser.
bad interface compared to android 2/5
absolute joke to clear history and cookies on ios
Disappointed Android to iOS user 1/5
Having been a Android to iOS user, Firefox has truly disappointed. Many things the iOS version lacks that the Android version has.
SUPER LAGGY AND SLOW! Keeps freezing and crashing!
1) Why can’t we use extensions on the iOS version?
2) Why not the ability to close more than one tab at once?
3) Select multiple items at once and then delete them all at once in both history and bookmarks.
4) The ability to move open tabs around and put them in a different order.
5) Why can’t webpages saved as pdf’s be on ONE pdf page instead of several pages?
6) On Android you can switch between tabs by swiping left/right at the search bar, why doesn’t the iOS version have that? Having to open the tabs button each time I want to switch to the next tab over is inconvenient, a pain, and time consuming.
7) Bookmarks are not saving NO MATTER how many times I press the “bookmark page” option. Even closing out of the app and reopening doesn’t help.
8) On Android there is a “close tab” option in the menu, iOS doesn’t have that. Instead for iOS, you have to go into tab view mode to delete a tab, which is not only time consuming but also causes the app the freeze and slow down more than it already does.
9) Desktop view DOESN’T WORK for any site.
11) Battery usage seems to have gone up since the last update.
Hate what FireFox has become 1/5
Used to be only browser I used on my MAC. On my IPAD PRO
Can’t set it up not to save history or recently closed sites.
Cn manually delete history, had to delete and reinstall the app to delete recently closed tabs (did this to see if that would work and it did-only way to delete recently closed apps). Due to lack of privacy controls, I do not recommend this app, try Chrome or Puffin.
Seems to unstable recently. It doesn’t open the program and suddenly the program quits working.
Best Of The Best 5/5
Be still at the top :)
Watered down version 1/5
The PC and Android iterations of Firefox are much better. This iOS version is severely limited thus completely negating the reasons to use Firefox to begin with.
For starters, there are no extensions. I need uMatrix, uBlock Origin, Decentraleyes, HTTPS Everywhere, etc!
There is no way that I can tell to customize the browser by using a user.js file. (if you don't know what that is, I highly recommend you educate yourself)
There doesn't even seem to be a way to access "about:config"! (again, educate yourself)
The settings that are available here are very limited. Mozilla, PLEASE give iOS users the same, amazingly customizable browser that you offer users of other platforms. I understand that there are likely some limitations based on each particular OS, but this is ridiculous.
Lastly, to whom it may concern: stop omitting my review for this app. I'm not being ugly, vulgar not particularly terse even. Censorship has a place...it is not here.
Power to the people 5/5
Firefox is the only nonprofit browser not interested in data brokering and at the front lines fighting the major tech companies (including Apple, Google, Facebook, etc) that do. Their add-ons allow me to do so much more and are keeping the internet and information from being controlled by the big corporations. Power to the people! Go with Mozilla!
Often doesn’t work with website features 2/5
By Legend of Zoltar
Many websites do not work using this browser. I often have to copy the url and copy it in safari to get a map or video to work. Only reason i use it is you can message on fb mobile with it, so i don’t have to use the fb messenger app. Otherwise I’d delete it.
Needs better Organization 1/5
I use to use Firefox as my main browser but after they setup the bookmarks to a general setup I deleted it off my Mac, Ipad, and IPhone. Of all the major browsers you can’t set your bookmarks into folders and you can’t even put them into what order you would like them. For browsing I think it’s a good app/program. Please put in folders like most browsers have for bookmarks.
So So Browser for IOS 2/5
By Mee Miself & Eye
I’m not sure what I want out of this browser. So far I am completely befuddled. It’s nothing like the browser on my laptop. I can’t find where I can get Help. It is ridiculously not user friendly. I downloaded their “podcasts “ and now it won’t Shut-Up. It’s my bedtime and need my alarm. I guess for now I’ll have to restart my phone. Somebody PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!
Can’t even download Firefox 1/5
I’m trying to get the FF app for Windows 7 Pro desktop, but after many tries, it refuses to install after downloading.
Terrible layout 1/5
Seriously... why do you insist in having so many buttons in the desktop and mobile? Every time I want to do something I’m confused of where to go because you have menus on top right corner and bottom right corner... which is for what... come on... I shouldn’t be able to have to memorize what does what, that’s bad UI experience... look at chrome and safari... only 1 button and inside it has the necessary stuff only, the settings are in settings, not there... seriously, then people ask why others use chrome... have you noticed where chrome has the share button?
Step it up, it’s not only speed, people what a good user experience as well most than anything.
I can hide image. No other browser can do that.
PDF Problem 5/5
By Muctar D.
Being in another tab when a tab with a PDF is loaded will stop rendering the file. I have to refresh the tab to see it again.
Great app that just keeps getting better 5/5
I have always wanted an easier way to share pages between my phone and pc. Well they just added that. So happy.
Half Dark Mode??? 2/5
It annoys me to my bones that the dark mode or dark theme for the browser is only the middle part of the screen, leaving the top and bottom bright white.... please make the WHOLE app go into dark mode, I’m begging you.
Improved a lot. User friendly, needs mp3 audio support for m3u8 playlist videos on jwplayer 7+ please :(
Jumpy Window/Tab closure 4/5
I am reporting here because the App Support page have no Feedback function.
When closing old tabs that I left opened the screen jumps from the historical tabs to the present tabs.
it's just an annoyance not a fault.
It makes the user have to continually slide the page down to get back to the old tabs to selectively close them.
Worse than Safari 1/5
This was a good browser for iPhone before the 14.0 “downgrade”. This downgrade took away the ability to close more than one window at a time (if you have multi windows opened and close a window, it takes you to the window at the very bottom of your open windows) which is super annoying and time wasting. Also, they took away the feature to rearrange windows by pressing and holding.
Seems like an outfit like this could do a better job if they truly wanted to. I have switched to Vivaldi and Brave browsers and enjoying them much more than I did using the 14.0 version of Firefox.
Safari tracks websites? 4/5
While browsing on Firefox using my iPad near my Mac, I noticed that the "Safari from iPad" icon would popup on my Mac's launch bar. I clicked on it and the page I was browsing using Firefox popped up on my Mac's Safari window.
I am thinking Safari intercepts Firefox pages?
Re-ordering tabs! 1/5
For some reason, I’m not able to reorder tabs after the latest update.
Update: Three months later, I still can’t reorder tabs!
I *want* to use Firefox, but: major gripes 2/5
I fully agree with the review by anon0913 (see elsewhere).
Firefox should in no way ever need Background App Refresh. Period.
“Pocket”? Complete waste of resource. Don’t track me for suggestions, Firefox. Nuff said.
First time I tried to login to sync, my valid login was rejected. No sync.
There is no Favorites bar for efficient quick access to frequent websites.
All in all, bookmarks handling is fully bungled. Can’t edit or delete on iOS.
Many websites are slow to load. Not much perceptible benefit over Safari.
There should be *instant* sync between “favorite” bookmarks and “Top Sites”. Again, USER inefficiency.
If Firefox is indeed interested in privacy, then Duckduckgo should be the incoming default search engine—not Google.
All this, dealbreaker. I’ve toyed with betas (MacOS and iOS) as a “good Mozilla citizen” should. I’m about to give it up.
Firefox Web Browser 5/5
Update: Firefox is still a great browser but when you switch between light and dark mode the story captions for pocket get in a weird format. And you have to reload the browser to have it in the right format(referring to captions on homepage). Another issue which another reviewer brought up is that Firefox seems to be using up a lot of battery when you browse.
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.🦊
