I downloaded firefox from the app store to my ipad with ios 12.1. It will not run when I open it :cry: . All I get is a dialog that says "Thanks for choosing Firefox...." and the program locks up. I've tried removing the program and reinstalling. No luck. Same problem. Is firefox compatible with ios 12.1?

Moving to Mobile where the mobile versions of Firefox are discussed.

Supposedly it supports iOS 10.3 or later. I searched the official support forum on https://support.mozilla.org and didn't find any threads about iOS 12.* specific issues.

Neither http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_hangs or http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser_will_not_start_up seemed to have anything useful about a new installation (with no profile) not starting.

I have Firefox on iPad. It works, however I'm still on iOS 12.0.1. Updating to 12.1.1 now and will report back.

Update: Firefox still working after updating to 12.1.1.

It was already installed, from before iOS 12. So, yes there could be some issue with installing new on iOS 12.
