Trying to pair (login for sync) my iPad with my existing Mac. Latest versions of everything on both systems (iOS 15, Monterey) as of this date.

The iPad says to open firefox.com/pair on the Mac. This brings up the QR code on the Mac.

Then I tap the QR scan icon on the iPad Firefox in the upper left corner. This brings up a camera, and it reads the QR code.

I expected that to pair the iPad to the account signed in on the Mac.

Instead, I get the following message on the iPad; it is displaying the FIrefox logo and says: "Pair using an app Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app".

I exited Firefox on the iPad and tried several times with the same result.
