I can't make a login QR from a phone.

I've noticed a weird issue that might just be from a bad assumption, idk.

Have Firefox on Android logged in and all. Also have FF on an iPad, I've changed my password so the FF account is disconnected and I need to redo the login. Understandable.

So I go to log in on the iPad, and decide to go the QR route. Supposed to open firefox.com/pair on the device that is logged in, cool. But when I do that on the Android Firefox, I get forwarded to the Unsupported page. Even if I request the desktop site.

I get it, the usual assumption is that if the phone is trying to open that page, they might be trying to log in on the phone but doing it wrong. But am I correct that there's no way to force the phone to make the code instead so I can pair a second mobile device?

Btw yeah I know I could just use a password. Only catch is I was in public at the time and didn't want anything shoulder surfing.

Hi

I am sorry that the QR route did not work on this occasion, but can you connect using the offered email option?

I was able to do it with the email, yes. Wasn't sure who to write about the bug with the QR page not working right.
