WhatsApp chat not invoking from Firefox android
In previous version of Firefox (the one with regular tabbed browsing for normal and private browsing) if use https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=0919848012345, I used to get a button continue chat and clicking on it used to take me to WhatsApp directly. Not the button directing me to an WhatsApp page asks me install :(. Also selecting the URL used to give me WhatsApp app icon along with cut copy paste options, which also used to direct me to WhatsApp. Now that icon is missing. The same is working on chrome on the same mobile. Firefox version : 89.1.1 (Build #2015812947) AC: 75.0.22, 5204f4025 GV: 89.0-20210527174632 AS: 74.0.1
Attaching pics : 1. Firefox showing message that WhatsApp isn't installed 2.selecting URL doesn't show WhatsApp option 5. On Chrome, Clicking on chat button directs me to WhatsApp. 3,4. On different mobile with same version of Firefox, Selecting URL shows option to open and clicking on it gives option of whatsapp

Hi Dutch Dummie,
My problem is invoking WhatsApp app chat from Firefox. It's working fine in older versions.
Why I need: to chat with anyone in WhatsApp without adding contact.
Url: api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=<phone number with ISD code>
Answering your questions. 1. Is that your phone number?
No, its destination number with whom I have to chat
2.You have 2 different whatsapp android apps? (original whatsapp & a malavide whatsapp+ ?) Yes I do have 2 WhatsApp. But its not whatsapp+ or some other 3rd party WhatsApp. Its same WhatsApp deviced via dual apps feature in Android mobiles.
3.is this mobile-number ends 006 different than your api-URL !NB! the first 0 must not be there !
I didn't get your question,
But if you are referring to two different numbers in screenshots, I took screenshot with different numbers that's all. There is no issue with 0. Couple of years back WhatsApp used to work with 0 only. Now it's working without 0 also. If this is an issue then it should not work with Google chrome or Firefox old version.
Removed 0 and tested this https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=919247756006 didn't work
Surprisingly wa.me/send?phone=919247756006 is working.
Great, thank you.
