Firefox fails to open the appropriate app based on the link like Google play, youtube... instead it shows a pop-up "this link needs to be opened with an application"

How do I fix this?


p.s: this is a fresh install

The site treats tablet Firefox different from phone Firefox due to some user agent sniffing. Looking at what the site is doing.
