Home link not starting Firefox

Hello,

I'm running Firefox on MIUI 13/Android 12. I am using the "add to home screen" feature to create a link on the home screen too a specific website (not an app, just an url). The link is created on the home screen, but if I click on it, it doesn't work, nothing happens - unless I previously start Firefox, minimize it, click the link and then the link works. It looks as if the link can not start up Firefox, but if the Firefox it's already running, it works. This is a relatively new problem, only appeared since I upgraded to Android 12. I tested with Chrome and there are no problems with that one.

I tried giving it all types of permissions, autostart etc.

Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you, Nirmal

Hi

So that I can try and replicate the issue here, what is the address of the website you are trying to work with?

Hi Paul, It doesn't matter what the link points to, the behaviour is the same for any site, from wikipedia.org to intranet 192.168.xxx.xxx. Firefox just doesn't start when I'm clicking the link on Home screen.

Other info: - Firefox is the default browser - I'm using Nova launcher. I tried with the MIUI system launcher, but there I can not even create a home screen link. When I choose the option from the menu "add to home screen" and then press "add" in the dialog box, nothing happens, no icon is added to the home screen. Oops, this might be another issue
