Phone: Oneplus 8 Android version: 12 Build number: IN2015_11_C.21 Firefox version: 105.1.0

Steps to reproduce: - Open Firefox - Go to a website - Click the triple vertical dots - Add to home screen - Press add - Press add

The app isn't on the home screen, but attempts to add it again fail with the message "This shortcut already exists".

How do I remove these invisible shortcuts? Can I do this through the file explorer? If not, can this be fixed?

Hi

Could the shortcut be on a second or third Android homescreen pane?

I don't think so. I only have one home page. I also tried moving an app to the second and third page and didn't see any extra apps there.

Helpful?
