PRIVACY CONTROL IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES
Firefox gives you greater privacy protection while you’re on the web.

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 and send open tabs between mobile and desktop. And Firefox makes password management easy by remembering your passwords across devices.

SHARE ANYTHING IN A FEW TAPS

A good compromise

I use Firefox for iOS because I use Firefox for Linux and it is the most privacy-conscious way to synchronize my passwords and bookmarks on both systems.

I could also use Chrome (privacy nightmare), Edge (ditto), or Brave (a solid, privacy-conscious alternative) but I prefer to support the one company that, despite stumbles over the years, has a long track record of putting users, and their data, first. And at this point I’m kinda used to the workflow for the (undeniably quirky) iOS app.

I could suggest improvements … options to disable/enable more UX elements — or making interface elements in widget form so we could design our own home screen; alternatively, a radically simplified interface like FF Focus, but with sync; a “clear cache/history on exit” feature like in the desktop app; a far easier way to report bugs or ask questions than the current system where you log in then (in my case) never get a response to your queries; and so on. But it’s fine for now and I look forward to further updates.

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.

Needs some clean up.

I been using Firefox and it’s relatives such as Sea Monkey and so forth since they were first made available to the Public and in many cases in alpha/beta back than and in time on most all platforms supported officially or not. During my career I became a huge privacy advocate. That said, I have to seriously question any company/organization who professes to be a privacy supporter and who puts services in their products from companies like Google and others. It has been many years now Google stated they do or will know you better than you do yourself (anyone that uses Google services willing or not). To better understand what is meant here read Google’s privacy policy, make note to where it says they record everything created on/through their services including email received in gmail and sent from there. Additionally, it defies logic why again any company claiming to support privacy would add support to their products to track your physical location and last I checked it is on by default (geo might not exist on mobile or it is hidden). I expect this from M$ since all their spying mechanisms are on by default (windows 10) and there are many, some cannot be turned off completely. Back in the beginning of Firefox I do not feel the development team would have ever added such things.
