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?

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?
