PWA support on Firefox desktop

Posted

I have a question regarding PWA support on Firefox desktop. I am not sure how to frame this correctly, but I hope I am able to list the problem statement.

Basically, I plan to migrate my existing mobile and desktop website to single PWA based responsive website. Right now, I have mobile website which is a PWA, and a desktop website. Goal is to have a single PWA based responsive website for both mobile and desktop platform. However, I want to make sure the proposed website will work with Firefox desktop. From what I could find Firefox doesn't support option to install PWA as an app with it's own shortcut as it is possible in Chrome. But I want to make sure it supports rest of the features of PWA, and website still works correctly in terms of UI and experience as in case when it is accessed from Chrome browser.

Appreciate a response on this. In case you require more clarity on the problem statement, do let me know.

Thanks @cor-el for sharing the link. I went through it previously but couldn't get the answer to my question from that discussion.

Essentially, I need to make sure my website works on Firefox even if the PWA install feature is not available.

I don't think anyone can tell you how your website will run in Firefox without hands on. Have you encountered any problems in your testing?
