I created my own Add-On, and set checkmarks for "Desktop" and "Mobile" add-on. I am able to install it on FF on Android - Smartphone version 94.1.2 (Galaxy S8). I am UNABLE to install it on FF on Android - Tablet version 94.1.2 (Huawei Mediapad).

How can I install my Add-On "FROM FILE" (.xpi) on my Tablet? Thanks for your help to get this done.

Hi

Your add-on may not yet be supported in Firefox for Android but we are looking to add support in a future update. You can follow progress on this and leave comments at https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/20736

In the meantime, you may want to test your add-on using the approach outlined in https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2020/09/29/expanded-extension-support-in-firefox-for-android-nightly/

What exactly is the way custom add-ons (install via file) are supported on Android? Why it works on smartphone, but not on tablet? Is it supposed to be that way? (different policies? Code stacks?)
