Description

Get the people-first browser that’s 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 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 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 the most recent searches you’ve done on 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 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, cryptominers 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. And when you close private browsing mode, your browsing history and any cookies are automatically erased from your device.

GET FIREFOX ON ALL YOUR DEVICES
Add Firefox across your devices for secure, seamless browsing. In addition to synced tabs and searches, Firefox 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 favorite search engines.

ORGANIZE 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.

SHARE ANYTHING IN A FEW TAPS
The Firefox web browser makes it easy to share links to web pages or specific items on a page with easy, quick access to your most recently used apps.

The best and safest browser

I was a computer scientist, systems analyst and support technician for 51 years. I am also a woman. I have exclusively used Firefox since it’s inception. I have always been impressed that it is nonprofit.
In 2013, I had 2 PC’s and my bank card. Having hacked the stolen computers, the perp was able to access my bank account and steal $300,000. She was able to gain remote access to my other computers and commit other crimes. I was able to track her activities, but law enforcement did nothing, because they didn’t believe a woman could know that much about computers and the law.
Using Firefox, I was able to protect myself from this known hacker. Any time she broke through Firefox’s secure settings, if Firefox didn’t first notify me, I would notify them, and my accounts would again be sufficiently secured. The techs at Internet Explorer or Chrome wouldn’t have done the same.
I am forever grateful to the people who have made Firefox possible. I love Nightly. Not only will I always exclusively use Firefox, I have promoted it to all of my clients, and anyone else who would listen because they cared about safety when on the Web. I will continue to do so because I have faith and experience that no other browser can even come close to what Firefox can do.

WHY MOZILLA WHY?

I have been using Firefox as my sole browser since 2008. They have had a fantastic and secure browser for a long time and it has been a great relationship. Apple products on the other hand are complete garbage in the usability department. I bought a Mac mini in 2014 because my hard drive went out on my 5 year old gateway laptop, within 18 months the Mac mini was unusably slow. And now for my Ipad I got this little dandy last year and I have never owned another piece of technology so infuriating in my life, the one respite was the fact that I had Firefox on it, the one program I knew would never let me down. I was asked to do a major update a couple months ago, and I figured what’s the harm Firefox has never steered me wrong. When the update was complete, lo and behold I have lost all my loveable Firefox usability. They have updated me to what is little more than a safari skin. I am permanently unable to access any of my Firefox account information. I can’t change my password because all of my information will be lost and with it still working on my other devises (pc and galaxy) I cannot afford to risk losing that information. This one star review is not for Mozilla as a company but their decision to bow to apple and its BS.

Latest update has rendered it unusable on my old phone

I don’t like to buy a brand new phone every couple years due to the cost, both to me and the environment. Firefox is my go-to browser and has been for years, but since the latest update I’ve grudgingly gone back to the default browser (safari). It takes sometimes a full minute to load a page, and even when loaded clicking on links or buttons or text fields on mobile sites can cause it to stutter again, or crash altogether. If I go to Home Screen for even a moment to check my calendar or respond to a text, the page will spontaneously reload when I return (to clarify, without closing the app, simply viewing anything other than the app for even a second while keeping it open triggers this).

As a test, I spent 10 minutes trying to log into a social media account on Firefox before giving up and did it on Safari in seconds. Maybe it’s an issue of resources, but Safari seems able to allow my old decrepit phone do web browsing just fine so clearly it’s *possible*, and just not a priority for Firefox developers. Which may be fair, but is unfortunate for me and anyone else who values privacy but can’t afford the latest hardware. I’ll regrettably have to start looking for another browser that attempts to protect consumer privacy, because Firefox constantly reminding me what it was like to browse websites in the 90s isn’t the kind of nostalgia I enjoy.
