Is it possible to allow Firefox Preview to open links in their respective apps instead of having to click the 'Open in App' button every time?'

Example:

I want to open a reddit link in a native Android app.

Current situation:

I click the link and the browser redirects me to the respective Reddit web page. I open the menu and click the 'Open in App' button.

Ideal situation:

I click the link and the native Android app opens.

Reasoning:

It saves clicks and bandwidth by not opening the Reddit web page.

In Firefox Preview for Android, when visiting some sites (like NYtimes.com), a media notification will appear showing something is playing, even though nothing really is, which causes other media (for example, podcast apps) to stop playing. See screenshot. This also occurs in regular Firefox on Android.

I know there's collection tab and new browser looks and feels fantastic, but for me bookmark icon is too much hidden. I'd like you to think about maybe small icon in home page. Something what makes it easier to access, because I am still using bookmarks. It's just a suggestion, so this will be up to you, but I will be grateful for that. Thanks for the best browser Firefox :)

Hi~

I am using forefox preview in Android pie OS (device is LG V50 / Language : Korean)

By the way, when I do a typing in web browser, typing prompt is shown as black colored rectangle. So my typing status is now shown well. It is causing a frequent mistyping. And it happens whatever I type Korean or English.

Hope to improve this issue.

I'm not sure of where to post feature requests and I can't find a roadmap for the product, but here I go:

Coming from Firefox Focus, I liked the feature that all data is deleted on app exit.

While launching Firefox Preview in private session with a home screen shortcut is very good in offering a choice (which I do take advantage of), this is only applied when directly tapping the shortcut and not when a 'custom tab' is opened by an app. For example, opening an article link in an app, Preview currently only able to open in a standard session, remembering all of the data received... Can I make a feature request that mimics the behavior of Firefox Focus, but as a option for users to enable. i.e. All 'custom tabs' are opened in private sessions, destroying all data on exit.

With Firefox Focus now being shelved for Preview, this feature provides users the performance gains from Preview and the privacy benefits of Focus.
