EF makes my iPhone freeze

EF regularly makes my iPhone freeze. Particularly if I turn my phone landscape in order to read a thread better. Only happens on EF, not other websites. Anyone else having issues?

Re: EF makes my iPhone freeze

I just updated mine to 16.1.1 to see if it helped (it didnít). Not sure what it was on before that, when it started happening.

Re: EF makes my iPhone freeze

EF has every last tracker on the planet running in the background. Combine that with an ancient forum software and I can understand that some browser react funny. Its not usable on iPhone anymore.

Has EF now become that toxic ?

I donít understand? I know how iPhone screen rotate and rotate lock works. But if I rotate my phone with EF open, my whole phone freezes and I have to restart it. If I donít rotate it, itís much harder to read.

Ah ok, sorry, for me it was only my screen, not my phone.

Just tested it on mine since the iOS 16.1.1 upgrade, and it seems to be working without problems (iPhone 13 Pro)

Is there an EF app or are you using Safari or via the Google app?

Re: EF makes my iPhone freeze

This might be related to the browser more than the phone/OS specifically.

I use a variety of browsers on my iPhone:

Duck Duck Go
Firefox
Brave
Safari

I've never had any of them crash the phone under any circumstances, but if one does, I'd try another. Duck Duck Go and Brave block a lot of junk, those two are probably your best bet.
