Hopeful for solution, multiple posters have asked about issue without responses

I have used links to websites added to home screen. These shortcuts recently stopped working. If I use bookmark on Firefox Android it opens. If I copy url to Chrome and create a shortcut link on home screen it works. Is there a Firefox setting that changed? I've used these shortcuts without problem on this phone until past week or so.

I'm on Android 11 updated to Oct 2022. Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G. Firefox 107.1.0 with "add shortcuts to home screen" enabled.

Thank you for guidance.

My home screen icons no longer have any names! It's impossible to tell different shortcuts from one another if they share the same image. There's nothing in the customisation options about hiding text, and I wouldn't have enabled any such feature if I had found the option. Help!? I know there were names there before.

Why you can only enable home screen shortcuts (home screen bookmarks), but when you do that, Firefox crams 300 bookmarks for no logical reason on my home page. Why? I only want to see stuff I pin for quick access. Instead it's such massive pain in the ass to manage it I just disable the stupid feature. Why it needs to do this and be annoying instead of just allowing user to pin what they want and need and nothing else? I don't get it.
