For the last month or so, every time I try to open a link in an E-mail and sometimes other links, Firefox puts up your little yellow header banner to tell me you have "prevented a pop-up" - these are not pop-ups, but links ! This is stopping me opening links to Facebook, Nextdoor and any other links sent in E-mails. Links in Al Jazeera, CNN, and BBC on line work just so you know the full picture. This is partly annoying, but more seriously I am still working, (SE) and it is only a matter of time before I have something serious that I will not be able to deal with if I can not open the link to it. Also, and it may or may not be connected, some time ago, back end of 23, before I became aware of the above problem, I started to be unable to preview PDF's before sending them. I just get a blank page. Not great when you consider that most of my invoices are sent electronically, but at least even tho' I can't see them, to check, they are getting to my customers. The link problem is of course the more annoying/serious one and definitely to do with Firefox, by your own admission of the yellow header notification. HELP. Oh ! my E-mail is goblander@hotmail.com, because if you reply here, and I get sent an E-mail........I wont be able to use the link, will I !! See the problem !

Cheers. John

Disable history

How can I disable history in the iOS app? In browser it's easy - Firefox will - never remember history. But I can´t find it in the iOS app.

After entering a potential URL or just something you want to search within the default search you see the search suggestions.

However, every single time I try to scroll on my search suggestions, it suddenly hides the URL entering interface which includes all of the suggestions making it impossible to scroll through suggestions.

This seems to be related to an intended automatic keyboard hiding behavior, but instead the entire interface goes away and you’re left with the previous webpage you were on.

Mozilla Firefox Ios 17.4.1

I’m trying to use Firefox on my iPhone and I’d like the default search engine to be Firefox. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be already or an option. Can this be done?

Also, my default search engine keeps switching and I don’t want it too. Like I said above I’d like it to be Firefox but I can’t seem to get it to be ? And it switches to google so I removed it.

I have it set to Brave right now but when I search for things in regards to a keyboard logger and as I’m quite sure I have one on my phone. It will start and just not go through as if something is limiting its functionality.

Also when I try and do security check I get an error unable to gather home information. It usually says not able to stop sharing access to camera, microphone, location even though I have them turned off.

Hoping someone on here can help me!

This also happens when I try and install a verification app to my accounts when I click to add it any other one that I don’t have will pop up. Then when I click to add on the App Store it reply’s I’m not connected to the internet when I am. How can I fix these issues and secure my device?

"Firefox Sync" not sufficient

On an iPhone, Firefox stores your browsing history within the app’s local storage, which is not directly accessible due to iOS’s security restrictions.

However, you can only export your ~FUTURE~ local mobile browsing history by using Firefox Sync.

Firefox Sync does not work retroactively for local mobile browsing history from past sessions due to the way the synchronization process is structured.

TL;DR: I want to export my local mobile browsing history as .txt or .csv -- When you enable Firefox Sync, it starts syncing the data from that point forward. However, my pre-existing local mobile browsing history cannot be exported as a file such as bookmarks can, and it cannot be saved to my desktop via Firefox Sync for the reasons above. Thus, it is literally only possible to scroll over it and open the sites one-by-one in order to pop them into the Sync-able history, which I do not want to do using iOS automation...

Please fix or advise. Thank you.
