Feel at home on your iPhone and iPad with Firefox
When we set out earlier this year to reinvent Firefox for desktop to be simpler, more modern and faster to use, we didn’t forget about your Apple mobile devices. We use our laptops and computers for work and play, but our tablets and phones are much closer. These are the first screens we see in the morning and the last we see before going to bed.
Firefox is just one of the many apps you use throughout the day, so our browser can’t just look good. You also have to feel at home. Most recent Firefox for iOS and iPadOS represents what we believe online life should be: fast, beautiful and private – presented in a package that looks and feels intuitive and natural.
You can already access your top sites with just one click, and we’ve brought the same search speed. Whenever Firefox or a new tab opens, the keyboard will now appear, ready for you to start searching immediately.
When typing takes too long, you can create word-by-word search suggestions.
Firefox syncs your bookmarks, history, passwords, and more between devices. But when many tabs are open on your iPhone, iPad, and computer, they are often hard to find. Now you can just start typing the tab name, and Firefox will display the tabs you have open no matter where they are.
And if you don’t know exactly what something is called, you can search for it easily. Open the app’s main menu and all of your bookmarks, history, downloads, and playlist are there.
We’ve rebuilt parts of Firefox into native components, making it more iPhone and iPad-like than ever. You will notice design elements that look and function identically to those found in many other apps, so our browser instantly feels familiar. We have also taken an important step in accessibility. Firefox now supports more text sizes and better integrates with screen readers.
Our menus take up less space and work like any other menu you’re used to.
All of your tabs, including those synced from other devices, now appear side by side. And your bookmarks, history, downloads, and playlist are browsed just like tabs. Switching between them is a snap.
And we’ve given Firefox for iPadOS the same new productivity-inspired tab, streamlined navigation, and streamlined menus. Now your favorite browser is consistent, wherever you are.
The App Store now includes app privacy labels that help you understand our data collection practices.
Here’s what we collect and why:
- You can choose to share information about feature usage, crashes, and other technical data with us. We collect them, but we do not associate them with the identity of your Firefox account! This information helps us to improve the performance and stability of Firefox and to support our marketing. You can find out more here.
