This is a web developer question so sorry if it doesn't belong here but I've tried search everywhere else.

Is it possible to get a devices orientation from magnetic north of firefox mobile? I can get this value for every other major browser, but not FireFox Mobile. - DeviceOrientationEvent.webkitCompassHeading is not supported. - DeviceOrientationEvent.absolute is false so the alpha is not set to north. - GeolocationCoordinates.heading is not useful. - Magnetometer is not supported.

This is for a web based 3D wayfinding mobile page I'm developing for a university to help staff and students navigate campuses, and having the 3D map on the page orientate with the device really helps.

Firefox Android - Custom Share Intents

I'm sure there's a good reason for Firefox (presumably to do with send to device) on android having its own share approach instead of using the system wide share intents, but I do find it lacking.

A major oversight is a simple "copy link". The only way to copy the link directly without the website title is to activate the URL input and select all, long press, copy. But I often find this awkward.

Any chance "copy link" could be added to the custom share intents?

The other thing I really miss is the old share intent "add to Firefox" that used to be available in the system share intents. If I remember right, this used to allow me to share a link to Firefox which then immediately gave me the option to send to another device, instead of loading the site in Firefox on android and then sending from there
