How can I access a file in phone memory?

this is always a pain in the neck. Bought new phone, Android 11, I need to read a file, named file.htm, in memory with firefox (or other browsers). This should be my home. I authorize FF to read memory (unfortunately there is only the checkbox for multimedia files, I do not know if this is an issue), and in the address I type

file:///storage/emulated/0/file.htm

No way, no message, just white page. Also with previous phones the first time I did this was a problem, but this time seems really hard. I tried also with 4 and 5 slashes but nothing changes.

Tried also to launch the file from the file manager but it does not propose me FF even if it is the default browser, just some crap like pictures and similar app.

NOTE someone said the FF has removed the possibility for security, but at least on my pc I can do it without a glitch

Thanks in advance to whomever will reply

Hi

It is currently not possible to open files in Firefox for Android but this is something that may be included in a future update.

Do you know this for sure? I have always been able to do this. Maybe I have to install an old version? Thanks for your reply

Yes, it is not possible to do this at the moment and it is not something that I expect to see change soon, but is something that may be looked at in the future.
