Descripción

Use Firefox Focus for everything you want to keep separate from your main browser — for all those get in get out and forget about it moments. No tabs, no fuss, no muss. Block online trackers too. One tap, and your browsing history is completely destroyed.

Firefox Focus is the perfect get in/get out, search and destroy, I’m on a mission that’s none-of-your-business — web browser.

NEW DISTRACTION-FREE DESIGN
When you open Focus, you just get the awesome bar and the keyboard for super quick searching. That’s it. No recent history, no past sites, no open tabs, no ads trackers, no distractions. Just a simple, minimal design with menus that make sense.

ONE TAP TO DELETE HISTORY
Erase your history, passwords and cookies with just a tap of the trash button.

CREATE SHORTCUTS
Pin up to four shortcuts on your home screen. Get to your favorite site even quicker without typing anything.

FASTER BROWSING WITH AD BLOCKING & TRACKING PROTECTION
Firefox Focus blocks many ads you’d normally see on web pages due to our enhanced tracking protection so you get much faster page load speeds, which means you get to the stuff you want a lot faster. Focus blocks a wide range of trackers by default, including social trackers and those sticky ones that come from things like Facebook ads.

BACKED BY A NON-PROFIT
Firefox Focus is backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the web, so you can trust it not to sell your data.

  1. Practically no resource draw and good blocking policy. The delete button is quickly accessible and works exactly as expected. Due to blocking, I am able to search much better on unstable cellular (essential for a park ranger). For some bizarre reason though, there is no button to open a new tab despite the functionality existing (you can open one by long-pressing on a link).

  2. This has been one of my browser for a while now. It’s snappy and quick while not draining memory or computing power. You can have more apps open along with Firefox Focus, and switch back and forth between different app windows faster. It also has an insanely light storage footprint.Focus has some of the better privacy defaults, especially when compared with the regular Firefox mobile browser. By default, Focus blocks ad, analytics, and social trackers.

  3. AHetaFan dice:

    I loved it until this update. Now you made it unusable. When firefox Focus opens webpage notification area home and back buttons are removed! You can’t even exit the app. Can’t use this at all. Have to change my default app. Might have found the fix. Hit the trash to close web page. Look at the bottom of the app screen where it advertises new features swipe through each feature. Fixed for me after doing that. Two stars because of this for now. Yes I mind. Said all there is to say in email.

  4. Tim Adams dice:

    Why does being more secure mean giving up functionality? The obvious need to be able to close individual tabs was only recently added, but it’s still not possible to simply open a new blank tab for some bizarre reason. And don’t you think people would want to see the new tab that they just opened a link in only to have to dig it out of the background? Only three stars for the mysterious lack of basic user friendliness / ease of use stuff and regressing a feature.

  5. Definitely appreciate the extra privacy features Mozilla had in mind with this app. It’s freeing being able to browse the web without feeling stalked on every site. I have it installed on all my devices and there’s no going back. I like being able to look at a garden hose for sale online and not having it plastered on every other site in an ad

  6. This runs absolutely amazing and very speedy… and private. My ONLY, ONLY complaint and suggestion is to have the ability to have more than one tab open at a time. Sometimes, i need several tabs open at a time to do things, and having only one open is a bit frustrating. Otherwise works fantastic

  7. Seth M. dice:

    I just installed it & everything seems perfect so far. I’ll re-review in a few weeks if any issues arise, but I really dig that it automatically erases all the pages after I close my browser. Regular Firefox says it will do that, but it doesn’t ever close them. I’ll have 27 pages open by noon 🙄 Firefox needs to fix that on their original app. Maybe the new, separate browser is the fix 🤔

  8. Based on first expressions, the app is pretty good. I downloaded it to replace the normal Firefox app as the original is too overwhelming for me to use in a mobile format. The only problems I really have are that it could be a little bit faster, and it would be nice if it had a search bar widget, like the original app.

  9. Very well made, all features work as advertised. A little overkill though. And considering its features, it’s basically tor browser without the tor part. If you do want it to work like tor, consider using orbot along side this. All in all, an amazing browser with extremely considerate privacy and security features.

  10. I really like the design and color scheme, its very fast as it should be as well. if it had just a few more options it would be 5 stars. simple things, like a custom home page, or opening links in apps being on by default. fantastic little browser otherwise

  11. This has been my go-to browser for quite some time, and will likely continue to be, but I wouldn’t recommend using it for downloading large files. Stability in that area is severely lacking. I regularly end up with broken files and have to start over. That, and they tend to outright fail if you veer away from the site you were on. Overall, though, for regular web browsing, it doesn’t get much better than this. Simple, fast, and secure.

  12. Simple and clean browser for specifically when you want to focus. It’s a niche use, as there are no bookmarks, no multiple tabs, and no history saved. Essentially, it’s equivalent to browsing incognito, but Incognito is on at all times. It’s great for what it’s for what it’s designed for, but anyone who wants more should look elsewhere.

  13. I would say this is the best mobile browser for phone usage where you want to easily de-gunk things often and want to maintain some privacy, but it isn’t, yet. Firefox has several accessibility features like the ability to zoom any page or the ability to prefer dark themes even when you have other privacy controls turned on, but you can’t do it here. Maybe it’ll happen, but seems not to be a priority.

  14. Dan McCune dice:

    Feedback if these are being monitored: the sound button popup when viewing a gif or a video is super distracting and I’m always trashing it as soon as it appears. Please give us a setting to turn that off permanently. Otherwise, my go to phone browser. Love the built in privacy settings and the help cleaning up after a session.

  15. Billy Duff dice:

    Exceptional browser. Great on battery and has great privacy feats built in. Mozilla has always been known for great browsers, until they lost their way for a little bit years ago, but if they continue to make stuff like this, they’ll be at the top again! I’ve always been a Firefox desktop user and now I can use their phone browser without feeling like I’m trading off.

  16. It’s a nice browser and has just about everything I want. However, having multiple tabs is super wonky and not user friendly and everything is gone once the app closes. I understand the privacy aspect, but I wish there was more control over how the user interacts with it. As is, it’s not especially useable. It is, however, fast, gorgeous, and sleek.

  17. It looks like a very fast very premium browser. My only gripe about this thing is that trash icon that appears on EVERY web page you load, and you can’t disable it. I know that is a very solo nitpick, but it’s unnerving, and enough to keep me from using this browser. Please change, and I’ll reinstall, Ed Other issue for me is an inability to create new tab. This is a browser essential. Idk why this was not included. This is unfortunately a deal breaker for me. it’s off to another browser! 🙂

  18. The latest version is definitely NOT ready for release. It is slow and buggy. It often doesn’t register when I press the back button and/or links, and I end up having to spam the back button for the browser to respond. It is really slow to respond any time I type anything in the search bar because it has an “about:blank” page. It doesn’t always clear the browsing history even when I fully close the app. And, it loads a different version of google that doesn’t have the sliding weather widget.

  19. I love this app and I’ve been using it as my main browser for a year. I’ve loved the sleek design and it’s performance along with the privacy. Though recently, whenever I’ve switched to another application on my phone, and back to firefox focus, the screen goes black and unresponsive. Reloading the page or typing a new search doesn’t work. The only way to fix it is completely clear all tabs, ruining my browsing. I really want to keep using this app. Please fix this, I’m not the only one.

  20. Very useful app for browsing without wanting to save anything. The only thing I wish is that it was less easy to accidentally close all of your apps, because when that happens you can’t reopen any of them ( which is obviously the point of the app), but it’s just too easy to sometimes accidentally close all of them. Aside from that it’s missing one or two features that if it had would give it five stars. But this is definitely the app to use for easy LOCAL anonymous browsing (eg doesn’t use tor)

  21. Used to be excellent, but ever since the update to version 8 it’s been really, really bad. Google image searches don’t load in the proper resolution (they stay in thumbnail resolution even when selected), searches often fail (blank screen), or take far longer then they should, and the scrolling is now very stuttery. Mozilla, what did you do to this wonderful app? I rolled back to version 7 and that still works great, but I can’t give a good rating to the current release.

  22. My only complaint is the erase button that constantly hovers over the screen. i have accidentally clicked it more than once, losing my session. I have never had a need to use it. it should be in a less obtrusive place. or there should be an option to move or remove it. Not everyone needs an emergency abort button where web content or a slip of a finger may land.

  23. The concept is very good, who doesnt want a really secure browser with minimal stuff getting in the way of browsing? However, Focus has some big issues with usability and design that ruin the experience. For starters, opening a new page is an esoteric ordeal, and, as far as I can figure out, is only doable by holding a link and opening it in a new tab. That’s right, there’s no actual “new tab” button. Additionally, it often times doesnt load pages when you click on them. Thats all.

  24. Missing too many features. Many websites don’t work correctly, you can’t just create new tabs (have to find a link on the page and select “open in new tab”), doesn’t store logins by design which just eats up time, takes up space in the notification bar but that functionality only exists to delete the current session, not return me to it. Probably a great privacy tool, but it’s just too inconvenient to use right now.

  25. I really love this browser. Unlike other privacy browsers, there’s no massive list of confusing settings, it’s streamlined in a way that I like smartphone apps to be. Clearing all of the tabs at once is surprisingly satisfying. It’s always in a dark mode, and the color scheme is nice. I usually prefer Chrome but this is my new favorite browser for phones. If it could adblock it would be perfect. But I like it too much to give it less than 5 stars.

  26. This browser is great. I use it on my Chromebook but either way, its fast, secure, and simple. I really can say I don’t get distracted as much when I use this browser. The lack of ads coupled with no VISUAL customization options makes it great for me. And I clarify that there are privacy settings. Just not options to change wallpaper or things like that.

  27. Privacy? Since the last update, when closing and reopening, I noticed that the browser did not clear the history/url in address bar. I then realized that when returning to the start page, the pop-up saying “your browsing history has been erased” is no longer appearing. Uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the issue…time will tell. Firefox…ever hear the saying…IF IT’S NOT BROKEN, DON’T FIX IT!

  28. Alright, so first order of business. This Web browser is not intended to be swift and smooth with all of your saved passwords and history. In actuality it is quite the opposite; a safe, secure browser that you can customize to fit your needs and security level and it does a fantastic job of that. The UI and features look and perform great while making it user friendly to those who may not fully understand what privacy is at stake with normal web browsers. Plus look at that emblem, it’s amazing!

  29. N. P. dice:

    As other users have mentioned, this was A FANTASTIC app, until the recent update. If you switch to another app on your phone and go back to Firefox, Firefox is blank and unresponsive. Extremely frustrating, because you have to clear it out and start over. If I’m browsing a website, and I go to answer a text message in another app, I go back to Firefox and I’ve basically lost that page. I loved this app, until this change (bug?). Developers, Please Fix This!

  30. Great. The privacy functionality is the best and most intuitive in the privacy browser market. A complaint I have is that some streaming websites do not ahow the video and I am forced to switch to Chrome. Also, if a website has pop-ups, it is impossible to navigate it, as the pop-up does not open another tab, but rather goes to a new page on the same tab. Keep it up.

  31. Evan C dice:

    I like this app a lot. It’s nice to have a lightweight browser for just quickly opening links and stuff. Just be careful because, since it doesn’t save any of your browsing history, if you accidentally close the app or it has to get reloaded cause your memory is low, you won’t be able to get back to the web page you were on. I know that’s a privacy feature, not a bug, and I’m cool with that.

  32. Peter W dice:

    Appreciate that Mozilla has decided to keep updating Firefox Focus! This is one of the best mobile browsers with privacy focus (again ), and I was glad to see the updated Gecko engine making it in here. One item that I really miss is the ability to simply close a tab with a “close” command. The “back” function doesn’t do it if a site misbehaves, and I ended up having to exit the browser, loosing all tabs in the process.

  33. It’s always been pretty good at being a browser, geared toward single pages and quick checks without loading the big behomoths like chrome. A few quirks, like opening popups in the currently open tab. But because of the permissions creep, with no indication what for(even emailing mozilla), I won’t be updating it and will likely remove it soon. Despite it being a good browser, I can’t recommend it because it wants personally identifiable information now, a capital offense for privacy

  34. Andy K dice:

    Does what it says in the description. There aren’t a lot of features included but being a full fledged browser was never the purpose of this browser anyway. It does a decent amount of privacy related things in the background without any need for users to tinker around in any complicated settings. The UI looks nice and the overall UX is good, in my opinion. I prefer much higher degrees of customization for my main browser but none of the Firefox apps offer that anymore, unfortunately.

  35. Ads are showing now, it’s not working well for opening links from other sources, it freezes and hangs constantly. Everything was great before this recent update. For privacy and security I was using this a lot but this is a step back from the previous version. Edit: fixed all the stuck issues with a cache wipe, which is odd because I thought the trash button was wiping everything. It’s still not blocking ads, only ad trackers.

  36. Exactly as advertised: no fuss. Nothing here that’s not in regular Firefox (already the best browser), but this saves some finagling with settings. I would’ve given a 4-star before due to how easy it was to accidentally hit the trash button and close all your tabs, but they’ve finally moved the button more out of the way. It would be nice to have a “new tab” button without having to long-press hyperlinks, but it’s not a substantial issue.

  37. I used to love love love this app. Since updating it yesterday (4/30/2019) auto complete doesn’t work. And when I try to manually add my fave websites to the auto complete list, it doesn’t take. The web browser also blocks fewer ads now. I am super disappointed and it’s no longer my default browser. I hope they can fix it soon, it used to be a fantastic browser.

  38. Update again: so far no more bugs on my end. They also added the individual removal of tabs. Which I know this becomes like any other browser app but people want a lightweight browser that doesn’t slow down your phone or make it overwork just to run it. I’m liking it and the team is responsive and at least tries to fix issues. I haven’t tried it yet but I do know that the app can’t open certain websites that require logins. I’ll end up using Chrome for those but this app is my go to.

  39. It’s 143 megs, – hardly a lightweight app. Chrome takes up about 100 on my phone. Curiously, it also manages to build several megs of stored data in a day or so, with suggestions, cookies, all tracking and java script off, leading one to ponder what it stores. It’s still an excellent browser, less resource intensive than most, and without the useless cache storage overhead most browsers make it difficult or impossible to avoid. But it isn’t small, anymore; – it’s more like huge.

  40. Blocks pop ups and protects me from virus add pages. What’s great is that it actually keeps counts of invasive programs that tries to track you from their website. This update does seem to have some type of glitch. Once in a while the pop ups come through and it’s only happened to me with the latest update. Otherwise this would have been a 5 star review.
