I'm thinking of getting an iPad and want to use Firefox. A few questions:

  1. Does FF on iPad support tabs?
  2. How would I move my bookmarks in places.sqlite to FF on iPad?
  3. How would I move my PW's in logins.json and key4.db to FF on iPad?
  4. Do some of the extensions for FF work on iPad?
  5. Does FF on iPad have an equivalent to userChrome?


FF 73.0.1 - FF 74b7 - FF 75a - TB 68.5 - Mac OSX 10.13.6
Computers I've used: IBM 7094/UNIVAC 1108/IBM 360/DEC PDP11/DEC VAX-11 780/DEC VAXstation 8000/Sun SPARCstation 2/Mac from 1984 to 2019

4. No as Firefox for iOS is basically a shell due to Apple's restrictions on the JavaScript and browser Engines used. The Extensions made for Android Firefox and desktop Firefox will not work.
