add page shortcut not working

Posted

The title says it all. I really want to add a home screen shortcut for YouTube, but when I hit the browser button to do this, nothing happens. I refuse to use the native app after learning it's ads can't be blocked, but I still want the convenience of an icon on the home screen.

If you long press on the address for the site in the address bar, you will see the option to add a shortcut to that page to your Android home screen.
