Show address bar in PWA (Android)?

Posted

Is there a way to show the Firefox top bar while in a progressive web app? I would like to use the search feature and some add-ons I installed but I can't access them since the 3 dot menu is hidden.

Sorry but the above answers don't help because I don't find anything called Site Settings, as shown in this screenshot

My Firefox version is 68.2.0

Hi

I think that I might be able to help with this.

When you are viewing the PWA, select the three dot menu and choose to Open in... top open the site in a full copy of Firefox for Android - complete with your favourite add-ons.

I hope this helps.

Again, sorry but this doesn't help. I don't want to open the page in Firefox. If that's what I wanted, I could just create a page shortcut, but that's not what I'm asking.

The reasons why I use PWAs is because they can't be open multiple times and because they are in full screen.

If I open everything in Firefox, and use page shortcuts, they get mixed with existing tabs, they duplicate if I tap on them twice, which may use more memory and clutters the interface, and they are no longer in fullscreen.
