FAST. PRIVATE. SAFE.
Keep what’s personal private without sacrificing speed. With Firefox, you can have more control to decide what to share online and when, because your life is your business. We designed Firefox with smart browsing features that let you take your privacy, passwords, and bookmarks with you safely wherever you go.
MAKE FIREFOX YOUR OWN
With the release of iOS 14, you can now make Firefox your go-to, get-it-done, default browser. And with Firefox widgets, you can jump right to searching the web or using private browsing mode straight from your phone’s home screen.
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.
OWN YOUR LIFE WHEREVER YOU INTERNET
Add Firefox across your devices for secure, seamless browsing. Sync your devices to take your favorite bookmarks, saved logins and browsing history wherever you go. Send open tabs between mobile and desktop. And Firefox makes password management easy by remembering your passwords across devices. Take your internet life everywhere, knowing that your data is safe, never sold.
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.
DISCOVER MORE OF WHAT YOU LOVE
Find and share great content across your devices. Open a new tab in your web browser to see the sites you visit most, your recent bookmarks and popular articles on Pocket. Firefox gives you quick access to your most recently used sites to help you get where you’re going fast, without hassle.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Decent browser. Good privacy. Mediocre UX
I use Firefox on my desktop every day and love it, best browser that combines power with privacy. On mobile it is not quite as appealing. It does just fine at being a browser, and the built-in privacy features are nice, but the UX falls a bit short. For example, when closing tabs, if you close the currently highlighted tab in the list it scrolls all the way to the top of the list of tabs, and you have to scroll all the way back to the bottom to see your recent tabs. Also, the action button is in the top right, small and hard to get to, but contains actions that I use frequently (e.g. find text on page). The east to hit button in the bottom right I don’t use very often, even though it has a prime spot on the screen. Hopefully this can be addressed, I’m still using it because I like having the same browser for desktop and mobile, but it can be annoying sometimes.
Horrible User Experience
I have used Firefox on and off now for a span of seven years, and I keep checking in to see if they fixed their terrible bookmark UX, and I am disappointed every time. Let me go into detail. For as long as I can remember, the most frustrating aspect of mobile Firefox is accessing bookmarks. Too many taps!! There should be a library icon on the navigation bar at the bottom, you tap ONCE and it shows you your bookmarks. More specifically the user should be able to customize what bookmarks they want to see right up front. For me, all my bookmarks live in the Bookmarks toolbar. I never put bookmarks into the Bookmarks menu - I mean, does anyone? Second point, right now when you tap the menu and tap “Your Library” it slides up this pane which displays your bookmarks, great - however, it’s super annoying to dismiss. If you don’t land your finger exactly on the right spot and swipe down, you end up swiping something else. There should be a “Done” element or some other way to dismiss that pane other than swiping. Even tapping on the gray swipe element to dismiss would be ok. I really love what Mozilla is doing with Firefox, with emphasis on security and privacy, but their UX/UI needs some serious attention. Even the desktop browser looks dated and has issues. These things wouldn’t bother your average user that much, but as a UX/UI designer myself - it grinds my gears.
Do NOT update to Version 34 or higher
June 22nd, 2021. I made an awful mistake in choosing to update the app to version 34.1, it is HORRIBLE. The user interface is all over the place, it is counterintuitive, it pops up differently from before in a less economic and functional way. The tab menu only goes ~3/4th up on the screen now and shows less of your opened tabs, conveying LESS information. The tab menu is now a pull up menu rather than a separate…. tab menu. When opening a new tab it immediately opens the address bar onto a Google search, opening the keyboard; this makes it so you have to close that before you can see the bottom control bar again or interact with anything else… asinine.
This is an absolutely astonishingly BAD update and I so desperately wish I had an old .ipa file to revert to, or that Apple allowed users to downgrade apps. Mozilla has just made similarly terrible “design” decisions on their Desktop browser. Whoever is in charge of “design development” needs to be replaced told what it is they’re “designing”. This is an Internet Browser, it is supposed to be useful. These “design” choices have made this Browser ridiculously LESS USEFUL. Please re-evaluate what software you are creating and restore functionality.
If you like your Internet Browser to be functional, and you have version before 34.0. DO NOT “UPDATE” it is AWFUL and I regret it. Absolutely appalling.
