Every shortcut opens 3 Firefox Windows

What's going on with the latest version of Firefox Focus? Since updating to this new version, any shortcut I have on my tablet homepage now opens 3 identical Firefox Focus pages when selected. I close out all the windows, and try again, same thing happens. The old version never did anything like that. Thinking the update didn't install properly, I uninstalled Firefox and did a fresh install thru Google Play. Same thing happens.

Hi

Just to clarify, when you open a shortcut from the Android home screen to Firefox Focus for Android, it opens three tabs?

What is the address of the webpage that the shortcut is for?

Here are 2 simple shortcuts I created within Firefox Focus and placed on the Android homepage of my Alcatel Joy Tab, which open 3 tabs: mail.yahoo.com and www.creditkarma.com

Hi

I just tried the second of those addresses - I opened the page, set at as a shortcut on the home screen, cleared Firefox Focus for Android and opened the shortcut. Only one tab opened.

Are you able to share a screenshot (attached to a reply to this thread) showing the three opened tabs?

Here's what clicking a shortcut gets me, when starting fresh, without having already had Firefox open (not simply having closed any previously open windows).

Time to uninstall this unsupported, buggy junk and find another browser.
