Hi,

If you open the Firefox for Android menu, select Settings and scroll down the list, you should see the option Open links in apps. Turn this off and the site you are viewing will stay in Firefox for Android.

Hello, I have never opened the option "Open links in apps'' But the problem of forced jumps remains. The system I use is OneUI 4.1, Android 12
