Occasionally there are websites that seem to trick my Firefox for Android 93.1.0 to launch the AliExpress app I have installed. This is surprising since I have the "open links in apps" option set to false and I don't explicitly use the "Open in app" menu item in this case. Is this expected behaviour?

Keep opening links in native Google Maps app

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… (read more)

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.)

Hey, I often use my android device with a mouse and I noticed that, unlike in any other browsers on the OS, right clicking or long clicking a link or an image with the mouse doesn't trigger a context menu (for options to open the link in a new tab or copy the link address or have the download option for pictures). What's up with that?

I installed the Firefox Browser on my Samsung galaxy s9+ today and can't find a home button anywhere. Every time I want to go back to the firefox home screen I have to waste time by pressing the 3 dots in the top right corner then hitting the back arrow repeatedly until I get to the home screen. Or I have to open a new screen and if I don't close the other screens I just get a bank up of search screens.

Is there any way of adding a home button to the tool bar as I find that not having one is annoying and a bit of a deal breaker which means going back to chrome and that sux.

As many times as it has been asked, and as many times the question has been incorrectly answered, why not make it easy to add this simple feature?

As much as I love Firefox on my PC, and as much as I hate Google, I'm going back to it as my browser.

Why would a company knowingly frustrate it's customers?
