Subsequent name changes for home screen shortcuts on Android

While adding a website shortcut to my home screen on Android, I changed the name (to be shown on the home screen). I later decided to use a slightly different name, so I removed the shortcut and added it again, entering the new name. Nevertheless, the shortcut is now always added with the original custom name. This is also the case when I leave the name unchanged in a later attempt. I get the same results with multiple sites. I get the same results after closing Firefox, restarting my phone and emptying the Firefox cache. Even thought the shortcut on the home screen is probably not actually a bookmark, I tried bookmarking the site, and changing the name of the existing bookmark - with the same results. Is there a way I can choose a different name for the home screen shortcut, or this a bug? Background: I am now manually adding shortcuts to my home screen after getting a new phone (Pixel 7a). I had have mostly the same shortcuts on my previous phone (Pixel 3a XL). The shortcuts were kind-of(!) transferred to my new phone: they appear in the same home screen folders as on my old phone, but gray. When I try to open them, I get the message: "Couldn't restore shortcut because app doesn't backup and restore". Is there a way to transfer (all) home screen shortcuts? If not, please consider adding support for backup or automatic migration.

Hello, I already have the stable release of Firefox for Android installed on my Samsung Galaxy A50 smartphone. What exactly will happen if Firefox Beta for Android is installed alongside the stable release of Firefox for Android? Will there be new app settings for the Beta version on the phone or are the stable release and the Beta app settings combined? I am signed into YouTube in the stable release Firefox for Android version. Once the Beta version is installed, do I have to sign out of the stable release version and sign into YouTube on the Beta version? The stable release version of Firefox for Android has unresolved issues, especially regarding YouTube, that the Beta version configurations may be able fix. Please let me know the answers to these questions and any other concerns I should know about before I install the Beta version of Firefox for Android alongside the stable release version. Thank you.

[LG Electronics] I need a guide to use the Firefox Browser app on an Android GO device. Also, I need Mozilla developer contact information for support.

My name is Mr. Yeo, a developer at LG Electronics’ H&A headquarters.

         ============================================================================

In the past(2022), I had ever get in touch with <kapil@mozilla.com> by email about Fenix, which is available as Open Source on Github, to include it in our product.

But now, <kapil@mozilla.com> email address is not valid any more. So I had no choice but to leave an inquiry here.

==> Question 1

 :  Can you provide contact information for a new support person to replace <kapil@mozilla.com> for cooperation between LG Electronics and Mozilla?
         ============================================================================
         ============================================================================

Our team is considering a product for Android GO devices. So we're trying to mount the Firefox app here.

Because Android GO devices are low-end products (= RAM size : 2GB) An app such as Firefox Lite is more suitable than Firefox.

However, I found out that Firefox Lite support has ended. I also found articles mentioning Firefox Focus as a replacement.

==> Question 2

 :  From Mozilla's perspective, 
    we would like to ask what method you could suggest for companies developing low-end products 
    based on the Android GO platform to install Firefox apps.
         ============================================================================

Thanks.

Trying to sync Android firefox app with laptop. Firefox Android app installed. Check. Open android settings, turn on sync. Check. QR code on laptop screen. Check. Touch "scan" button at lower frame of Firefox

    Android app, scan code on laptop. Check.

Error message: "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." No, I did not use system camera. Yes, I did activate it from the firefox app/scan button - REPEATEDLY. Somehow, firefox does not recognize it's own activation of my system camera. Please help, I need the bookmarks off my phone and onto laptop. Thank you.

Firefox Android place website shortcut on home screen, not "Install" web app?

I want to add a shortcut to my Android device's home screen for a specific location within a popular website (github). However Firefox doesn't allow me to do that, as the option to "Add to Home screen" changes to "Install" (i.e. prompting to install it as a web-app).

While the "Install" option also places a shortcut on the home screen, it doesn't allow for a specific URL, rather it just leads to the github login screen instead (just as it would with an "app" you wish to use). I don't want that, I want a shortcut to a specific page within github.

Is there any workaround for this? Can this behavior of "Installing" web-apps be disabled somehow in about:config, so that all websites can just be added as regular shortcuts?

I'm using FF Nightly for Android, btw.

Thanks in advance!
