Open local html file on android

more options

Hi, how can I open a local html file with firefox 86 on android 9? It's like firefox no longer registers itself as a valid program/association to open html files.

What I've tried so far: 1) If I type file:/// in the URL bar, nothing happens. It works on Opera. 2) If I go to a file manager, select an html file, and click "Open with", firefox doesn't show up; Chrome and Opera do. 3) If I go to the android settings > applications > firefox > associations, firefox shows no associated file types at all.

The HTML language isn't only used on the Internet, it's also used for local documents, please allow us to use firefox to view our local html files.

Thank you, this saved me a lot of time of trying in vain!

I'll have to use Opera for this use case in the meantime then; hopefully it won't be long before it's supported in Firefox once more.

I use File Manger Plus (recommended). You can set it to open HTML/txt in Firefox as default app. This is the only way I've manged to make it work.
