Can't Pin a site to my home screen

The support page says the following to Pin a site in Firefox for Fire TV:

Pin a site

To add links to sites to your home screen, follow these steps:

   Enter the site you want to pin in the Firefox search bar.
   Click the pin icon for at the top of the page. 

I can enter the IP address Firefox search bar. I then use Previous to close the dialog box (if I hit Next it takes me to the site). However, it won't let me navigate to the pin icon to select it. It is greyed out.

I'm using a Fire TV Stick 4K.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to Pin sites to Firefox for Android TV?

Hi

If you search for an open the page, tap the three lines button on the handset and then select the pin icon in Firefox for Amazon Fire TV, the page will be pinned to the home screen.

Hi

So that I can try this here, what is the address of the website that you are trying to pin?

Any website. But these specifically: https://www.kcra.com/nowcast https://barrett-jackson.com/ It appears that FireFox doesn't recognize that anything is in the search bar. What would be nice would be to have the ability to be at a web page and pin it from there like a bookmark.

Thanks, that worked! It looks like the instructions on the support page need to be updated.

Since I have your attention, are there any plans to make a Android TV browser? I've tried side loading the FireTV Firefox browser on my Android TV box (Nvidia Shield TV) and videos freeze on some sites.
