An excellent privacy browser. I've blocked 488 trackers on a single page using firefox focus. I kind of wish it kept stats, so you didn't have to check manually each time. But, it's let me know which sites are the worst offenders for mining & selling my data. It could definitely benefit from more features though, as this is more of a bare bones browser, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.


Yes yes yes. And thank you thank you thank you. Beautiful, fast and light. Too light: please add bookmarking option and nothing more. We already have the option for fingerprint auth, everything should be safe.


I love the privacy settings, but not being able to close a tab just makes it really hard to make it my preferred browser. It's only useful for the odd search without adding to your digital footprint


Hi FireFox lately i'm having issue with writing, for example logins and password..i mean inside a website. Tried many different websires, I cleared my cache many times but it keeps coming back i hope you can fix it (from Galaxy Note 5 phone).


Has issues with rendering web pages properly and can't view them well enough to use, also navigating the page with touch controls doesn't work properly. Zoom levels etc. It's really bad now. Uninstalling.


I use this browser a lot and since the last update I cannot access drop down menus on websites anymore. When this issue is fixed I will rate this 5 stars. Thanks. Latest update has fixed these issues, working perfectly now.


Doesn't do a good a job as I'd like. Doesn't stop those malicious redirects and the times where the browser stops you from going back by overloading your browser with redirects.


In last two months (October 2019), start to drain my battery and not blocking ads from some websites. Sad!


Gets worse after almost every "update". Now it's been weeks since the browser doesn't open drop-down menus. And sometimes it remains unresponsive (and then crashes) while trying to go back to a previous page (an it's *not* a case for a certain webpage).


This app blocks trackers, cleans every session. And blocks pop ups which is a major win.


Does not resolve .onion domains while under a Tor VPN. REPORTS ALL OF YOUR ACTIVITY to Cloudflare with no option to turn that off. Just avoid using it.


Love the features, but The app is somewhat broken after the last update (mainly drop-down menus, upload buttons and some other minor features of websites) which honestly gets irritating when trying to do anything other than simply read text. I would give it a 4 or 5, but after the update and these common features not working, (I still have to use another browser! my rating has gone down. Come on Mozilla, fix this, please!


Great Privacy Browser, however I don't feel that users should save their passwords in the browser or any browser for that matter as it makes the user more vulnerable to unauthorized access to websites in the event that someone else is using your device and accessing websites the user did not authorize them to visit. For example: The user permits a friend or family member to use their device and the friend or family member visits Amazon and logs into YOUR account.


BUG OR FEATURE ? I usually use a browser to listen music and Internet radio by using a browser opened on a page while I'm driving. The problem with focus (8.0), is that with several sources, it shuts down the connection, when my Samsung I5 phone goes black after 2 minutes. This does not happens with Chrome and not even with Firefox where music continues to play, so I think is something in Focus. If it is some kind of privacy features in order to kill all the connection when if is suspended, I think it should be placed under option, because is can be a very annoying problem, and I would like use this browser as system default. Thank you.


It works great and is a good alternative to chrome in some websites.


Really good for privacy. But... Where are the buttons to open/close tabs?


Zero bloat, fast, the privacy assurance of Fx and Mozilla's commitment to FOSS. It has been my default Android browser for years. Just needs proper add-on support to make it perfect. Btw, shouldn't have the'send data' option 'on' by default. Also, this particular update broke some important functionalities, including the drop-down menus on Amazon product pages (To reproduce: size options for shoes etc when 'desktop site' is turned on).


I have never used a worse browser. It's painfully slow, did not load pages properly, and I don't like the layout at all.


First 5 minutes, Crash,Crash,Crash!!! Shouldn't be available as it Absolutely Pitiful. Where's the minus star option? Only got 1star so i could access the Post


The App is good in blocking ads and cookies. But this also results in many web pages not opening correctly or some required pop ups being blocked. I would give 5/5 if these issues are resolved somehow without compromising on privacy and security.


Good app, I've always used Firefox since Netscape wasn't an option anymore. Has almost always worked well for me. But most recently, drop down menus don't work anymore. I have an HTC U 11.


This browser is really privacy-minded and it has a simple, clean interface. For mobile usage, one tab is enough and corresponding to the tagline, the browser helps me stay focused. The adblocking works really well, with sites still being accessible.


For years I have been very happy to use this as my default browser but recently it will not show the drop down list to select the number of guests per room on hotel booking sites. I need this function often so the browser is nearly useless for me. Blackview A30 mobile android 8.1


Bug: When switching system theme in and out of Dark theme (Android 10), Focus freaks out and loses the ability to navigate back or switch tabs most of the time. Switching themes also often causes the app to no longer be able to display (or to reload) the current page's content.


Used to be great, now it is nearto being unusable, sites won't load, drop down tabs never work, great shame


Smooth scrolling and fast on my Panasonic Android 8.1. More pleasant for eyes than Chrome. Thanks!


This used to be fast and responsive but the most recent update has turned it into a slow and laggy experience. Update: It just keeps getting slower to start up with each update. Works fine once it is loaded, but loading takes forever.


Very quick browser, blocks many ads and trackers. Fingerprint lock. All good except a few things. Not customisable, no themes No data saving mode Not possible to open multiple tabs, and that is a huge letdown for me. If you guys can fix these I change my rating.


Genuine experience! Recommend for someone who really into single webpage for information with no ad and other tracker!


Not bad, however no option to open tabs except through a link and incredible amounts of background usage, that can't really be stemmed with setting restrictions. This browser has used 5% of battery whilst running in the background today and I'm not even using it.


Edit: no longer blocking Google ads! Better tab management please - create new tab button, close individual tab option. I appreciate the simple interface, but this is a frustrating omission that stops me from using the browser 'full time'.


Great privacy focused browser. I've been using it for a year and love it! But the last update broke something... It runs constantly in the background now and pull down menus no longer work.


This is my default browser, i use it all the time. i really like it except the fact it drains my battery. I always get alert from android that it's draining my battery (even if there is no active tab open). Pls fix it.


Yea, it's really broken after the latest update. Doesn't always display pages when using task switcher to switch back to browser. Hangs and needs to be killed often. Seems to accurately render fewer and fewer sites with each update.


Really like the concept, have it as my primary browser to protect my main browser being tracked. But recently started to get high energy usage warnings, even when the app is in the background.


Quite good application. I like to use it. However with the latest update I'm not able to use any "drop down menu" on any website. Does anyone experience the same?


Two problems. First, I cannot attach any file through the browser. For example, attach a pdf file. Second, the system always shows that Firefox Focus is draining my battery.


Good performance and robust privacy protection. If I'd change one thing though it would be the ability to close individual tabs. Other than that, great browser. 👍


Oh well, they can't all be winners. Bad tab controls. All else are well enough.


I'm using firefox focus since it was released and i love it. But with the last update, each time I open the app it crashes my phone and reboot. Please could you fix that ? Thank's ! (1 star until the crash fixed)


Use to be good but now it's hell to use the app. Using the Galaxy S8. App is useless because I can't select anything when there is a drop down or paste text info fields


This browser has a bug, out of nowhere it stops playing the audio on videos. Audio only works again when restarting the phone. I am using Moto E. Despite that, it's one of the best concerning privacy.


Crashes to home screen 2 seconds after launch, every single time (even though it is responsive during that time). Not very useful now is it.


Draining Battery too much. Off-late, it's draining too much battery in the background even after closing it forcibly. Fix it soon (within 10 days) and I will increase the rating, else will uninstall soon.


I have been getting high battery usage by the app warning. I'm using Oneplus 6T android 9.


Almost unusable. Most websites won't work properly while using Focus and while it has some great features this is a negative above them.


Nice for banking and health website's where if your phones is unlocked keeps your information from prying eyes!


This was the best browser I'd used in a long time. Now after the last update drop downs dont work, some links dont work and it freezes. I u installed it until they decide to fix it.


This app worked well until a month ago. Now drop down menus no longer work, making it so I don't use the app anymore.


totally unuseable. takes over 2 minutes to even populate a search and no ability to add bookmarks. installed duckduckgo app and guess what? instant open AND bookmarks. sorry you lost a user of almost 10 years


Kind of hard to like it since I can't get it to sync or load extensions. Are chromebooks really so puny or is Google just being jerks about letting a real browser run on their system and is only allowing you guys to run this scrawny excuse for a brower. I want my Firefox Sync bookmarks/settings/passwords!


Would be nice to have an option to open a new tab (without having to tap and hold a link in order to get the option). Also, would be nice to be able to close one tab. Now, if you want to close one tab, you have to close everything.


Latest update 10-14-2019 defaults to mobile site. Previously it went directly to the site requested (the desktop site). If i had wanted the mobile site I would have installed the app.


An issue: click and hold on icon of Focus to open context menu, choose erase and open, use back button to leave Focus, there will be an overlay on the screen with only a title.


What every browser should be. Default private mode. You can choose to save your urls for quick auto completion. My life is fulfilled.


Very good experience using the app. I love the fact that every keystroke is not being sent to Google. Although I don't believe that Google is evil empire, I like the control over my data.


After the last update the crash has stopped but I've been getting this system alert even after I have closed the browser - High power usage reminder, Firefox Focus is draining your battery. Please fix this issue.


The last update causes high battery consumption. Wondering to uninstall it if the this issue is not fixed. In the other, greate job for the privacy!


Love Firefox focus but recent update has meant it is constantly being flagged as high energy consumption on my phone and it attempts to kill the app. Frustrating.


Caused the touch screen to not work on certain apps , (one plus 6t phone ).Worked ok for 2 months . Uninstalled app phone works fine .


Love the idea, but breaks many sites such as drop down select menus rarely work. I have reported this issues at least a dozen times and it's across devices.


Recent update broke the app. Searching opens about:blank first before redirecting. That made it too slow to respond and annoying. Also, any dropdown on any site isn't working. Bummer.


Was pretty much perfect, however it looses a star due to the most recent update causing my phone to restart/crash when I try to open/launch Firefox Focus.


Firefox has been my browser of choice for many years, won't be changing any time soon. More control and very customisable.


Have always been nice but after this update can't use scrolling screenshot anymore :(


I don't know what's happened recently but when I try to load a page, Focus will not display the page information about half the time.


Very slow, doesn't load many sites, scrolling doesn't work, horrible overall.


Great privacy browser....no bookmarks option and autocomplete is just not the same. Would give 5 stars if you could add bookmarks and PC/sync capability.


This was fantastic and my first choice, but drop down boxes not working after the last update which severely limits functionality.... please fix this


The app is great, but an update with an option to close a certain tab would be very helpful. It is incredibly annoying to not be able to do this.


a good browser for privacy, but don't know why this doesn't show up on the search on play store


It would be nice to be able to open new tab or new browser window from the program. Othervise, great app that values privacy for real.


There is a bug: if I have more than 1 tab open and I try to close it by pressing the back key it freezes the page and the browser is stuck except if the menus.


I like the app but recently I cannot use drop down menus at all. I click on them and nothing happens. Very frustrating.


Used to be great. Update yesterday, now crashes phone to reboot every time i open the app. Please fox and will update to 5 stars.


After recent update Android system is reporting that this app is draining battery. I also notice that it crashes very frequently.


Overall good, program runs in background and drains battery. This is since last update. Pls fix this issue.


Latest update broke drop-down menus, but generally good otherwise. Quick, albeit stripped down experience. Tab menu really needs to be reworked.


Very easy to use, intuitive interface, important privacy tools and options


Oops. Last update 14.10.19 has broken this app for me. Immediately crashes out after start.


the least secure browser available. allows malicious sites to launch external apps, does not block malicious ad redirects... completely useless for private browsing.


I like this app because I can have no browsing history on other devices.


Why did mozilla disable ability to share copied text?? This severely impacts productivity when attempting to take notes. I can share text in all other apps. Please fix.


Since last update, app is not working correctly, lots of separate issues once on web pages (tabs mainly not working)


After last update, dropdowns no longer work on any page. Needs to be fixed or the app is unusable.


Lately I've been having trouble with dropdown menus in some websites


Seems like one of the more recent updates broke drop-down list selection. About 90% of the time they don't function at all.


Wish we could download pictures from google images. It works fine when it's in desktop mode and I longpress the screen but not in mobile


Add an option to remove the fixated trash button, in place for a menu trash button. Menu>Delete. The way it currently is results in accidental tab deletion.


Wish this app had better support for Chrome OS and Chrome Books. Has minor bugs that I think could make this app great if fixed.


Can't select drop downs with latest version. Almost useless 2 weeks after they broke it... No fix


Was great but not working with menus or some text fields.


Since the last update it needs two attempts to open every single time. Please fix and I'll happily give 5 stars.


Good app but since last update dropdown boxes don't work anymore and I am getting double characters being entered in the search box.


Easy to use, fast, and I've never had a problem with crashes.


Was great. Not listening to users in direction


Following the last update my OS tells me that this app is draining power. This should be fixed.


I can no longer access drop down menus on websites (amazon, ebay, etc) which makes this useless for me.


What happened to ad blocking? Ads are appearing again.


Unable to create second page. It have no scale options and auto scale sick!
