Hello, I’ve turned off Firefox suggestions and search suggestions in my desktop and laptop browsers and cleared all history and cached data from my account, yet Firefox suggestions still shows up on the iPhone app with data that’s supposed to have been deleted. Where is the data coming from and how do I turn off Firefox suggestions in the iPhone app? I’m using an iPhone 14 Pro.

It's still there so I guess for now we just wait until the end of Q1.

Looks like this still isn't fixed in version 124 i got today, must have been overlooked?

Just updated to version 124 on iOS and still has the issue. To be clear, this setting is already there for Android. If you go to settings, then search, you can see under "Address bar - Firefox suggest" you can turn off search browsing history and search bookmarks.

iOS you can only turn off search suggestions from search engines.

Adding my agreement to everyone in this thread. It's extremely disappointing that a fix for this major privacy breach is being touted as a "feature". I'm unhappy about switching to another browser, but since Firefox cannot fulfill the basics of its purported first priority, I will be researching better options.

It's extremely disappointing that Firefox is touting a basic privacy fix as a "feature", and the timeline on fixing this seems to have been unreasonably slow. I'm unhappy about the prospect of switching browsers, but since Firefox is unwilling to fulfill its supposed first priority, I will be looking into better options.

@Jon  so it’s almost end of Q1 right? Doesn’t seem like this has been addressed yet. Don’t like stuff that I deleted out of my history popping up again. Any updates?

I have the exact same problem as the OP recounts. I have successfully turned off Firefox suggestions in my desktop browser, but there is no way to turn them off on the iOS, and it's not the same feature as "search suggestions." There is no "Firefox suggest" option under privacy. This is a big problem. I've been a Firefox user for more than a decade but this may make it untenable.
