Reviews From google play store

starting was good.. but breaks after a continuous use of 15-20 minutes.. Everytime since 2-3 weeks it keeps crashing which is irritating.. correct it than i will surely review it 5 star.


please update


The fingerprint option is lame. What is the use of fingerprint when anyone else can see behind the authentication dialog through the darkened transparent background?


My phone has really low storage space, so in 2017 Firefox Focus became my go-to mobile browser, as it was incredibly lightweight at around 10 mb. After ~a year it went up to 40 mb. The updates were noticeable improvements so I wasn't too bothered. But after recent updates it's over 100 mb. There are better mobile browsers that take up far less space. Still love Mozilla but any grievances I had with Focus were mitigated by how lightweight it was. Now there's really no point in having it.


Wow this app is such a shame. When it first appeared I love it. Fast slick efficient and tiny! Now its 174+mb!! Why? Seriously? A perfectly tuned app that delivered what it promised. Wow wayyyy to big now. Sorry, Opera mini has my vote now. Keep things simple please :(


Does what I chose it for... In and out without a trace, swiftly. I use FFF for 95% of my smartphone browsing. FFF menu item 'Open in' makes it easy to open in Brave if needed. (Brave replaced Chrome as browser #2 5% of the time)


Uninstalled! My experience is that when using a private vpn, this browser is not using it, it is using the primary provider instead. When checking the ip address, all other browsers show that traffic goes through the vpn, but firefox focus does not. I'm not sure how this is happening, but it's a security risk and entirely unacceptable. Hopefully this issue can get addressed and fixed.


Very good browser. Simple and fast. Needs ability to select larger fonts. update: after several upfates browser became huge and slow.It is larger than Brave browser and has much less functionality. This trend is not good, however it follows general mozilla trend. They tend to make something good and then screw it up. No longer worth installing.


The idea is there but the UX is poor in some areas. Confirm and cancel buttons are swapped! Terrible when "you sure you want to do this?" & you say no. The trash icon is where some sites put their CTAs so you end up closing the site when you mean to submit a form. You can't take a screenshots. Sharing images is a joke—it shares the image path not the actual image. Your devs need to put more effort into this. I often find myself going to Chrome.


list of problems, 1.crashes 60-80% of them time if you have more then 1 tab open, 2. can't close individual tabs 3. a site I use tells me the browser is out of date pros 1. private 2. works well for 1 tab


I suggest some improvements: 1. More exceptions for each options in Privacy & Security (for example: I want to block font on website A, javascript on website B, and both on website C. Not exception for all blocks currently) 2. Auto rotation when watching videos in full screen 3. Option to Show/Hide Erase button 4. Manual ad blockers because your adblock list is not enough


Great browser if you just wanna look something up quick. Some issues i noticed wih it are being unable to make new tabs without having to hold a link to be given the option to open it in a new tab, sometimes when zooming in or out via pinching the screen doesn't register that I let go or something and the screen randomly in a direction (usually up) really fast.


Genuinely fast browser. Does have an irritating quirk on Android 9.0, however, in that every time after you use it, even if you close the app completely & kill the process, it still keeps a notification active asking if you either want to reopen it or reopen and erase your history (there is no option to simply dismiss this notification). Stupidly, you cannot dismiss this notification either without first reopening the browser. For phones with notification lights, this is incredibly irritating.


I have been using FF for a long time and honestly, it has just got better and better. I echo the comments made here by SM Parent though. FF is now a bit too heavy on the MB's in terms of storage. Are you listening, Mozilla? I'm sure you can do something about that...


Newest update makes it crash all the time. very slow and google images is broken. alot of "about:blank" too. Keyboard not showing up. This was actually a really good browser but not so much anymore


It's OK. Definitely the best browser on android. I really, really hate how the address bar defaults to your last search, not your current url when you click it though. So annoying to retype things all the time if you had a typo or whatever. I can see how some people might prefer it, but would think the choice would be nice.


Just wish it would remember I only want English search results. Keeps giving me results in the language of the country I'm in no matter how many bazillion-f-ing times i set my language preferences (which still appear as English?!). Don't know if it's a problem because of the 'privacy' mode settings but it is a pain in the butt. Using Chrome instead when I travel. Think I will have to delete if this doesn't get figured out soon.


So glad that Find in Page is added! This is my primary browser now. Also use regular Firefox if for some reason I need or want to keep a session open. Typically for day-to-day clicking on new links, FFF is the best option. Another perfect feature is being able to manually add sites to the autocomplete


Does what it is intended for. I refer this who want privacy. And two other versions out there for who want extra. Thanks developer for such a wonderful browser. Please do some research and find answers before going to put negative comments. you can now take screenshots, and other things by doing some changes in "Settings".


Good When it Works. This crashes often when reading news sites... Certain sites? Starting to look elsewhere, which is sad since I use Firefox on my Mac, but on Android? Not so good.
