Firefox is set as the default browser. When I tap a link it doesn't open up and load the destination page. I just get a small black button that has to be tapped to open Firefox. Can I set something so that Firefox will open automatically?
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 7.1.1; Tablet; rv:67.0) Gecko/67.0 Firefox/67.0
Does the button say something like
"Tab saved in Firefox | Open now"
Firefox for Android has a feature to "queue" tabs. You can switch that off in the settings:
Firefox menu button > Settings > General
Move the slider next to Tab queue to the off position.
Does that fix it?
Thank you jscher2000. This was the information I needed.
Thank you jscher2000. Your solution causes Firefox to open but there is no new tab open with the destination of the link. Any ideas on why?

Hmm, not really. If a link is sent to Firefox, and it's not using Tab queueing, it should open in a new tab right away. If you try the link right away a second time, does it work any better?
Your suggestion was a success. All is well now. Many thanks for your help.
