The support page says the following to Pin a site in Firefox for Fire TV:

Pin a site

To add links to sites to your home screen, follow these steps:

   Enter the site you want to pin in the Firefox search bar.
   Click the pin icon for at the top of the page. 

I can enter the IP address Firefox search bar. I then use Previous to close the dialog box (if I hit Next it takes me to the site). However, it won't let me navigate to the pin icon to select it. It is greyed out.

I'm using a Fire TV Stick 4K.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to Pin sites to Firefox for Android TV?

Support for Fire Phone?

Sometimes the pull-down menus limit thinking, as well as subject matter. The web page says 'Firefox for Amazon Devices', Amazon Kindle Fire Phone is an Amazon device, but there is no way to direct a question about support for a Fire Phone (which I have used for 5 years). Is there a version of Firefox that works on a Fire Phone?

Why or why not? 

Other than this, how do I even ask the question? Example for this question: Submission format: "Which topic best describes your question?" But no pull-down answer is correct. "This field is required."

It will not let me post the question.

So I have to provide a false answer to even get into the system...

I use an android phone with Android Q. I have been using both Firefox and Chrome for a while. I would like to switch to Firefox, but it's way too slow. I use adguard on the phone. I also use uBlock origin & Ghostery with Firefox. At first, I tried to apply adguard special certificate for Firefox and use it, and I found Firefox is slow. I though maybe because I use adguard & uBlock origin at the same time. So I deactivated adguard for Firefox, and with the use of uBlock origin only it's still to slow in loading the webpages. Any ideas?!
