Use Firefox Focus for everything you want to keep separate from your main browser — for all those get in get out and forget about it moments. No tabs, no fuss, no muss. Block ads and online trackers too. One tap, and your browsing history is completely destroyed.

Blocking distracting ads also means faster page loads which means Focus gets you where you want to go a lot faster. Firefox Focus is the perfect get in/get out, search and destroy, I’m on a mission that’s none-of-your-business — web browser.

When you open Focus, you just get the awesome bar and the keyboard for super quick searching. That’s it. No recent history, no past sites, no open tabs, no ads, no distractions. Just a simple, minimal design with menus that make sense.

Erase your history, passwords and cookies with just a tap of the trash button.

Pin up to four shortcuts on your home screen. Get to your favorite site even quicker without typing anything.

Firefox Focus blocks many ads you’d normally see on web pages so you get much faster page load speeds, which means you get to the stuff you want a lot faster. Focus also blocks a wide range of trackers by default, including social trackers and those sticky ones that come from things like Facebook ads.

Firefox Focus is backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the web, so you can trust it not to sell your data.

Still a great choice for ad-blocking, and about your only choice for privacy.

If you want to know how private your browser is in 2021, look up EFF Fingerprinting / Cover Your Tracks, which is a non-profit site that will do a legitimate test of your browser’s privacy. Focus will still test better than your other browsers, I guarantee.

Edit: Thanks for page search and other new features! Very happy to see Focus receive meaningful, timely updates yet again. Firefox Focus is an absolutely necessary addition to your browser list. You can block ad, social, analytic, and others which if you know what’s up is worth the sacrifice of losing your tabs. Saying the regular Firefox app has these additions by itself or because Focus is installed is ignorant and if you want that question answered you should probably look that up instead of leaving negative a review. Thank you Mozilla for keeping Firefox Focus updated - it is a very refreshing addition to the sea of privacy-invasive apps on iOS, and it easily became my default browser as well. Could we get a way to change our User Agent soon though, please?

App Update deleted all of my browser shorcuts

Update: A recent app update deleted my 4 browser shortcuts and I had to add them back in. Hopefully this won’t recur with future updates. This happened on both my iPhone and iPad.

Until the last update you could add 4 shortcuts to your favorite sites so you could easily open them without typing in the whole web address for your most visited sites. Not sure why this feature would be removed. If you didn’t want to use it then you didn’t have to use it. So if users were concerned that others would see their favorite sites they could just enable Face ID or Touch ID to prevent this. Hope this is added back in a future update. It was very convenient to just check your favorite news, sports, or other info sites for any quick news updates when your in a hurry. URL Autocomplete isn’t the same because the sites you visit may be similar to those saved in app’s Top Sites which means you have to type more of the website address to get to the correct website. Instead of just clicking the shortcut. Please fix this so Firefox Focus isn’t just Safari with privacy features and an Adblock. Which is appreciated but not a full featured mobile version of Firefox.

Beautiful work, one caveat

Beautiful design, and blocks even the annoying “log in with your google account” on websites when full content blocking is activated. I block fonts too, try for yourself. One usability issue: if used effectively with Firefox Mobile, users need an option to open current page in FF in non-private mode. Currently the link opened via menu in FF Focus will always revert to a private mode page in FF, creating the need for repeated log-ins. This is bad design, please consider. Ideal setup IMHO: FF Focus as default, with one click to open current page in normal FF where cookies are kept not to make users log-in again and again to services like Google, etc..

Another important point: if I said Firefox focus is the default browser the menu link open in the default browser basically reload the page instead of allowing me the option to open the page in safari for example. Kindly allow the option to open the current page in safari. Thank you.
