Description & Details


Fast and private, with automatic ad and tracker blocking. From Firefox.

Browse like no one’s watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it. Easily erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won’t get followed by things like unwanted ads.

“Private browsing” on most browsers isn’t comprehensive or easy to use. Focus is next-level privacy that’s free, always on and always on your side — because it’s backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the Web.

AUTOMATIC PRIVACY
• Blocks a wide range of common Web trackers without any settings to set
• Easily erases your history — no passwords, no cookies, no trackers

BROWSE FASTER
• By removing trackers and ads, Web pages may require less data and load faster

MADE BY MOZILLA
• We believe everyone should have control over their lives online. That’s what we’ve been fighting for since 1998.

  • Firefox Focus (review)

    (3 months ago)

    Firefox focus is a variant of the Firefox browser that provides much improved security features. It can be downloaded on Google play and IOS. Only needing ~7MB of storage, meaning that it is super light - at the expense of other features, which we'll come to later. Now when I first saw this, I th

  • Most popular Android apps this week: Firefox Focus, Sonic, KingRoot, and more!

    (5 months ago)

    The Google Play Store is filled with many apps, which is great for consumer selection, but can often make app discovery difficult. Some apps just never make it to our homescreen. That's why we've compiled a list of this weeks hottest Android apps that have most likely gone under the radar or are so

This is a great way to cut down on your "digital footprint" for everyday browsing. Set it as your default, and then you can use chrome when you need the cookies etc. You'll find that many pages load faster with Focus, since it prevents loads of ad trackers from loading. It will also save on your data plan, since the average webpage loads ~5mb worth of content (much of which is tracking scripts).

The recent update apparently causes pages to refresh on any downward swipe. This breaks map site functionality, particularly when the location is encoded in the URL. I could not find any setting to disable downward swiping triggering a page refresh. Otherwise, this is a very responsive and valuable browser.

It's perfect! Ads blocker, ease of use, no tabs! At first it was hard to get used to no tabs but after a while it makes you more focus on what you are doing and stops the procrastination. If you really need something for later then you can 'share' the link or use 'open with' in menu.

After just one website that works fine with Regular Firefox but constantly malfunctioned with this app... and after 1/2 hr of my time trying to make sure it wasn't me making errors... I'm uninstalling with extreme frustration.

Great browsing experience! There's just this one thing that bothers me. On a Nexus 5x I can't get rid of the notification which keeps indicating that the app is running in the background. Could this be fixed ?

Swipe to refresh makes the app unusable if you want to simply scroll backwards but not necessarily reload the entire page from the beginning. Stupid!

Thank you for adding pull down to refresh. I would also like it to work better with LastPass. Whenever I need to enter login info LastPass assumes I want to login to my Google account no matter what site I'm in. This might be LastPass issue or Firefox
Jerry 5
Good start, privacy focused. Not a full replacement for my current browser until they add in ability to view desktop versions of websites! Please consider adding!
Mark 4
Works great, I only have one issue and that is if I send a webpage to Firefox on a different device, and sync is not on, the sending fails but I still get a nice green tick on screen suggesting Focus thinks it worked.
Nita 5
Useful and very light browser. But sometimes it's annoying when some ads popped up suddenly.

Please remove the stupid picture from behind the keyboard. Pull to refresh is pointless when zooming in on an image as it causes it to refresh unexpectedly. Add tabs.
