Hello. My specs: Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Android 9 PPR1.180610.011, MIUI Global 11.0.8 Firefox 89.1.1

I'm trying to add a home screen shortcut to a certain site (Artstation's home page, if it helps) but the 'Add to home screen' option that comes up doesn't do what I imagine it should. As I click it, it opens the prompt titled 'Add to Home screen' where a name to the shortcut can be entered, but as I click 'ADD', nothing happens. No error message or success message. Appropriately, no shortcut on the home screen either.

I've tried to test making shortcuts for other sites, but the same nothing happens. Sites that have the Install prompt instead I have gone in Firefox permissions and the permission for adding shortcuts to the home screen is set to accept by default.

Hi

Wow, that is a great website.

So that i can replicate what you are seeing, are you adding a name for the shortcut?

Hahaha, I agree.

Usually the app itself suggests a name* - in this case, "Artstation - Explore". I've tried adding that and a custom name too (usually I try for just "Artstation", though I've tried typing gibberish too). Both don't work in the same way.

/* If the page is properly loaded. If it's not, it doesn't suggest anything, though I'm not positive the two things are related.

Thanks for the help!
