Opening links in other apps breaks the Firefox App
For some reason, when I open a link on another app, the browser just stays on a blank screen. The loading bar doesn't even appear. I tried to do Open in Firefox, but it does the same thing, and it even makes it so any time I try to go to another tab or try to go to a different website immediately after, it gets stuck on the blank screen as well. I had to force close the app and reopen it to fix it. I don't know if it's a firewall issue or incompatibility.

To clarify, you are opening a link in another app, that link opens in Firefox, but you are getting a blank screen?
Yes. I initially open the link in a separate app. In this case, it was Twitter.
This issue isn't limited to Twitter redirects. It happens consistently anytime an app redirects to a different website, and I don't know why this happens!
It seems this issues is recurring one.

Does switching between two tabs fix the problem?
Does switching to another app and then back to Firefox for Android fix the problem?
Do they have Android dark mode enabled?
Hi Does switching between two tabs fix the problem? Does switching to another app and then back to Firefox for Android fix the problem? Do they have Android dark mode enabled?
Switching between tabs doesn't work Dark mode isn't enabled Switching between apps sometimes fixes it, but it's inconsistent.
