When i turn on "open links in native apps" in settings and i visit a link like "https://www.google.com/maps/dir/?api=1&destination=..." Firefox correctly opens Google Maps and i can create a route for the destination. When i do it a second time, it stops working.
Instead i get referred to a website, which opens in a new tab - [loading time] - and being asked to install "Google Maps GO". If i do so, i have to choose "my location" - [loading time] - click on "open in app" - [loading time] - and et voilà it opens the wrong app! (Google Maps GO, instead of Google Maps). This is insanely annoying!
This may be ok-ish, if you open like 1 Google Maps link per day, but i need this feature like a dozen times per hour, so the loading times add up accordingly. And i can't re-open firefox, including the website for every route i want to make, since this is adding another loading time of about a few minutes. I hope you see the problem here.
I already tried to disable/re-enable the switch for "open links in native apps" in settings, but i didnt work. Only the first time after starting Firefox the correct app is opened.
I can think of 2 solutions here:
1. Fix this bug.
2. Let us choose which native app to open, depending on a link's TLD.
(And NO, Google Maps GO is not an acceptable alternative to Google Maps for me.)
