Too many Add to Home Screen (A2HS) notifications

I just started getting a lot of A2HS notifications today (29/05/2020) on my Firefox Nightly on Android, in a few websites a get one per page I visit, it is too much! Is there any way to block A2HS notifications from certain website (or even all of them)? I feel this overuse of A2HS will definitely lead to people deeply disliking the feature, specially due to websites that blast them every page you load, there should be a limitation or a way to block new requests from the same website.

Edit (04/06/2020): This issue lasted a day, and the many notifications were due to the news website reloading every 4 minutes or so, other websites only had it being displayed once. After that day I haven't had any more A2HS notifications.

When using Firefox for Android, I can open links from another app (e.g. Feedly, Proton Mail) and only a small notification box says they are opened in Firefox, without leaving the app I'm in. Once I open Firefox a list of tabs will open for all those links I clicked externally.

Firefox Preview instead opens every time I click a link from an external app. This means I need to keep switching back and forth between the two apps if I'm trying to bulk open many links, such as from a reading list.

Can this functionality, to open external links in the background, be added into Firefox Preview?

From time to time Firefox Nightly will suggest poor quality website it thinks I should visit. Aside from the fact that this feature is broken it's annoying to have my window shade filled with poor quality content. How do you disable these suggestions?

The Twitter website is sending notifications through Firefox preview. In the browser version of Firefox, there would be a setting to revoke the websites ability to send notifications, but it appears there's no such option in Firefox Preview.

The new update is annoying where basically it flipped thr address bar from the top to the bottom. Is there a way to change this back to how it's supposed to be.

Let me just give a feedback that no matter the platform... the address bar being at the bottom would always be annoying.
