Hi, this issue has been present for a long time for me, and with many versions of Firefox Nightly for Android.

I'm always using the latest nightly for browsing Youtube only, with a set of specific settings and addons (since we can't use profiles on Android yet)

My problem is I've configured the Homepage to never show anything but a few URLs I chose to pin, you can see my settings and my homepage in the screenshots attached.

Despite the "Recently visited" setting being disabled, sometimes, but not everytime, the last pages I visited are added to the Homepage, after the pinned sites. I have no idea what triggers it or not, if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a bug.

Thanks for your help !

After installing a shortcut to a website that stages as an app through the Firefox Android app (Samsung 6.0, Android 14) when using said shortcut, if entering any text box the keyboard will pop up and rapidly close and open, making it unable to use. This problem happens on any text box, and with any keyboard. I'll attach a youtube link of a screen recording as well as a gif, though it's rather difficult to see the entire problem through a gif. Thanks for reading!

I have been using the "install as app" feature in Firefox for Android for years. It is a great feature for appifying services that don't have a dedicated app and for getting around poorly implemented stand alone apps. Last night I tried to delete a redundant "app" icon from a web page that I made a shortcut for in Firefox. Apparently removing the shortcut icon via the normal Android UI also completely removed Firefox and all my other app shortcuts that I made in Firefox before. Please fix this bug ASAP if you are able, I understand it also may be an Android thing you can't fix. I have not recreated the bug because it is very annoying to have to reinstall and reconfigure Firefox.

Good luck!

I have an issue with my keyboard not showing up when I try to type in search bars specifically when the sites are saved as app shortcuts. The keyboard works fine when the sites are tabs within the firefox app but once I save sites as a shortcut and open through the shortcut, the keyboard will appear for a split second and disappear right away.

I have a website that I, apparently, saved (no idea why or how) which appears when I accept [Recently Saved] option in [Customize Homepage]. I know I can hide it but I want to get rid of it completely. I have deleted history, and bookmarks but cannot find anything that I can remove about saved sites. I cannot even find the saved sites on my Mac.

Any indications as to how I can proceed, please?

Hello. I have firefox for Ipad. IOS 17.2. The issue I am having is that I would like to save a website shortcut to my home screen like I normally do with Safari. When using Firefox, once I'm on the site I want to "Add to Home Screen," I go to the share menu and this option doesn't appear. Other options such as print..etc do, but not ADD TO HOME SCREEN.

Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?

I've been reusing android firefox again lately and I noticed I would have a bunch of tabs at a time. Then I realized that it was because whenever I would click a shortcut from the search screen it would open the page in a new tab instead of staying on the current tab. Is there a way to change this?

I want to add a shortcut to my Android device's home screen for a specific location within a popular website (github). However Firefox doesn't allow me to do that, as the option to "Add to Home screen" changes to "Install" (i.e. prompting to install it as a web-app).

While the "Install" option also places a shortcut on the home screen, it doesn't allow for a specific URL, rather it just leads to the github login screen instead (just as it would with an "app" you wish to use). I don't want that, I want a shortcut to a specific page within github.

Is there any workaround for this? Can this behavior of "Installing" web-apps be disabled somehow in about:config, so that all websites can just be added as regular shortcuts?

I'm using FF Nightly for Android, btw.

Thanks in advance!
