Description

Get the people-first browser backed by a non-profit.

It’s a new era in tech. Don’t settle for a browser produced by giant, profit driven, data hoarding tech companies. Firefox is the obvious choice for independent, ethical tech that respects your privacy and gives you more ways than ever before to tailor your internet experience exactly the way you want it. Download Firefox now for iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Firefox is backed by the non-profit Mozilla Foundation, whose mission is to ensure the internet remains a global public resource, open and accessible to everyone. When you make Firefox your go-to, everyday browser, you’re also joining a unique (serious nerd cred) community that’s actively helping to diversify the way people experience the internet.

Firefox is extremely private for a reason — and the reason is you.

We want you to have an amazing experience every time you use Firefox. We know feeling safe and secure are foundational for enjoying your time online. Since version 1 in 2004, we’ve taken privacy seriously, because we’ve always been in the business of valuing people first, over everything. When you care more about people than you do about profits, privacy naturally becomes a top priority.

DIFFERENT DEVICES. SAME TRAIN OF THOUGHT.
Now you can search for things on your laptop then pick up the exact same search on your phone and vice versa. Your Firefox homepage displays your most recent searches you’ve done on your other devices so you can easily get back to what you were doing or thinking about.

LIMITED EDITION WALLPAPERS
Introducing limited-edition wallpapers from independent creators. Stick with one you love or switch it up anytime to make your Firefox match your mood.

STREAMLINED HOME SCREEN
Pick up right where you left off. See all your open tabs intuitively grouped and displayed along with your recent bookmarks, top sites and popular articles recommended by Pocket.

PRIVACY CONTROL IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES
Firefox gives you greater privacy protection while you’re on the web. By default, Firefox blocks trackers and scripts such as social media trackers, cross-site cookie trackers, crypto-miners and fingerprinters. In addition to Apple’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention, setting Firefox’s Enhanced Tracking Protection to “strict” blocks tracking content in all windows. Also, you can easily choose to search in private browsing mode so your browsing history and any cookies are automatically erased from your device.

SEAMLESS BROWSING ACROSS DEVICES
Add Firefox across your devices for secure, seamless browsing. In addition to synced tabs and searches, Firefox also makes password management easy by remembering your passwords across devices.

FIND IT FAST WITH FIREFOX’S SEARCH BAR
Get search suggestions in the search bar and quickly access the sites you visit most. Type in your search question and get suggested and previously searched results across your favourite search engines.

ORGANISE YOUR TABS THE WAY YOU LIKE
Create as many tabs as you like without losing track. Firefox displays your open tabs as thumbnails and numbered tabs, making it easy to find what you want quickly.

Great app only held back by Apple

All the goodness you’d expect from Firefox. The only real problem is being restricted to the out of date web render that Apple forces all iOS browsers to use.

It's a browser!!

It's a browser. It lets you view webpages. However, on install it also switches in several spyware features such as running studies on your browsing, and also sending all of your usage data... you can switch this off in settings, but for a browser that claims to put the user first, this shows Mozilla bullsh1t the same about privacy as everybody else. There is NO such thing as anonymised data in the browser world... you are a fool if you believe otherwise. Mozilla shouldn't have spyware switched on by default. Also, still no ability to switch off the very, very annoying autozoom on form fields. it wouldn't be so bad if it unzoomed once the input field is left, but I guess that actually would be helpful, and let's face it, at this stage, browsers aren't designed to put the user first, instead prioritising the website's providers. Just another example of individuals being deprioritised to the technology allegedly built to serve them. Mozilla suggests they put people first, but they don't. Software literally allows you to offer every conceivable option to users of it, so that it can truly serve each individual's needs, but that's not what we get. Anybody is welcome to disagree with me, but as a software developer with 45 years experience, now developing software for governments etc let me tell you: you're wrong. The people who ask us to write this software, don't want users to have choice. How would they control your actions then?!

Used to be my #1 choice of browser. No more

Used Firefox for years but started looking elsewhere.
Each new update seems to lose functionality.
One example: Closing all / multiple tabs on iPad and phone really hard work now as so obscure to find the icon / link to do so. Other browsers make it much easier.

The latest huge annoyance is, when I move from an open tab to look up or do something in another app or copy information from elsewhere to that page, when I click back on the active tab it jumps back to home page instead , with the page I was on minimised and lurking somewhere in a “ jump back in” list.

It is VERY disconcerting when the page closes as I click back on it and I cannot find where to change this annoying setting.

I DON’T want it to disappear and have to work out where it went to get back in. I just want to keep my workflow and get on with whatever I was doing. Like paste information into a text box or web form.

It’s especially confusing if for example I had several tabs open from a site and they all look similar in the “ jump in” format so I get distracted having to find it then scroll to wherever I was .

Sadly going back to Safari but will miss all the things that made Firefox top of the game. At least on the app. Web version may be different.

Developer Response ,

Hi! We are sorry to hear about the issues you have encountered in Firefox for iOS. I understand how you prefer not seeing a new tab opened when you launch Firefox. You can change this by going to Settings > Home Page > select "Last Tab". We do update the app to fix unresolved issues and add new features. We hope that you consider trying Firefox on your device again in the future.
