Hi there. I have Firefox on Mac, iPad and my Android phone. I've just set up a Raspberry Pi streamer which I access with a saved favourite, the address is http://xxxxxxxx.local I can get to it with no problem from my Mac and iPad but not at all from my phone. I've tried typing it in manually, resetting the phone... when I tap on the address bar it usually reveals the address as http://www.xxxxxxx.local/ - so it's inserted the www, which maybe contributing to this but I can't seem to stop it doing that.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Hi Jon

Thank you for your support of Firefox and for helping test Firefox Preview.

Firefo Preview does not yet have the ability to do as you describe, but this is something that may be looked at in a future update.

Many thanks for you reply - I'm not using Firefox Preview, I'm using Firefox Beta, have done for years. Are you telling me it won't access .local sites at all? Will any other Firefox browser do it from my phone?

Thanks again.
