Bookmarklet works on desktop, does nothing on Android

Posted

The bookmarklet below works for desktop Firefox. On Android Firefox nothing happens. I tried to use USB debugging to see if the console showed any errors, but got "The connected browser has an old version (68.6.0). The minimum supported version is (71.0a1). This is an unsupported setup and may cause DevTools to fail. Please update the connected browser. "

javascript:((d,i,s)=>{(i&&(d.location.hash=`#${i.id}`)),open(`https://en.howtruthful.com/c/?s=${encodeURIComponent(s||d.title)}&u=${encodeURIComponent(d.location.href)}`)})(document,getSelection().anchorNode.parentNode.closest('*[id]'),getSelection().toString()),undefined

Hi

Are you using a copy of Firefox ESR when you are doing this? It looks like you may be using the latest Release version.

You can download the most recent ESR version from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/enterprise/

The documentation was a little tricky since it's generally for the latest FF, but I found WebIDE under Web Developer was the FF 66 tool I needed to use on desktop. Then I was able to see errors in the console and fix the bookmarklet. Thanks!
