Browse like no one’s watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it. Easily erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won’t get followed by things like unwanted ads.
“Private browsing” on most browsers isn’t comprehensive or easy to use. Focus is next-level privacy that’s free, always on and always on your side — because it’s backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the Web.
- Blocks a wide range of common Web trackers without any settings to set
- Easily erases your history — no passwords, no cookies, no trackers
- By removing trackers and ads, Web pages may require less data and load faster

I’m in no way Assocciated w/ Firefox or any LLC linked to the company. I’m just very concerned about my privacy and personal information being taken and used without my knowledge or consent by companies like Facebook, Google, and many more. I want to thank Firefox for the incredible job that all the people who volunteer there time and talents to make the ever increasing threats to our personal information abuse/ selling of it to companies like the defunct “CambridgeAnalitic” (spelling). If you have “Netflix and/or AmazonPrime” search and watch documentaries about how companies w/ no morals towards personal private information are skimming that information directly from ur profiles without ur knowledge. Prime example of a company allowing this “data mining” is the “Facebook” scandal that has been under scrutiny by the US government.
Thanks again to companies like Firefox that strive to help protect us all when online. Great job 👍.
Even in the recent update, fixes provided by other contributors more than six months ago haven’t been included. I’ve been using Firefox Focus for a long time. But now the app has been officially abandoned with a notification (see below). It has bugs that have been around for months, with fixes provided by contributors. But the fixes haven’t been accepted and no new release has been published for months now. The official page on GitHub says (dated March 2019):
“Development of this project is not currently a high priority. Because of this, we cannot guarantee timely reviews or interactions on this repository. If you would like to contribute to one of our other iOS projects, we recommend checking out Firefox iOS. We greatly appreciate your interest in and contributions towards Focus and look forward to working with you on other projects!”
Example of a bug: When browsing a page, tap and hold on a link. In every other browser and in older versions of Firefox Focus, this would bring up a menu to copy it or take other actions. In the current version of Firefox Focus, it does nothing. A fix was provided by a contributor several months ago, but it hasn’t been accepted.
Cool, but why is this necessary?
I’ve been using Firefox for over a decade since a tech savvy friend magiced it in my computer. I thought customizing the browser functions was the key selling point for Mozilla, and minimizing tracking and adds was one of them? Most of the add-ons I’ve used over the years have become irrelevant as Mozilla has incorporated their capabilities into their browser. So while I really like the concept, I’m not sure why it’s necessary? It’s kind of frustrating because of the nature of the app makes it so saved bookmarks and passwords for sites I visit frequently can’t be saved. How is this different from the regular Firefox browser incognito mode or otherwise? Do I now have to have 3 browsers (bc you can’t uninstall Safari on iOS -_-) munching data on my phone if I want a way to save my logins/passwords and a good private browser? Also will there ever be a way to set Firefox as the default browser so we can open links in apps straight to Firefox instead of Safari?
