Fennec bug: open in external app

Hello,
I’m using latest 104.1.0 build on android 12.
I have enabled open in external apps, and clicked on a link pointing to play store.
( Tanti giochi gratis o in sconto sul Play Store: Three Kingdoms, Good Snowman e tanto altro | AndroidWorld )
The link opened into a new tab in fennec, but it should have been opened in the play store app.

But if I install fenix from mozilla (the one on play store) then fennec starts working correctly, ie it opens those links using external apps!

If I uninstall fenix then it still works for a while, then it suddendly stops working again.

Maybe the patches in fennec have removed some url handler or something similar?

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Same for Mull?

yes, happens with mull too.

@relan @SkewedZeppelin thoughts?

I think this is just the default browser default link opener non-sense of 12?

it happens also on another phone running android 11.

But if I install fenix from mozilla (the one on play store) then fennec starts

On an app install the “open with” dialogue is reset and shown

If I uninstall fenix then it still works for a while, then it suddendly stops working again.

Maybe you’ve chosen “always open with” for a certain link

After installing fenix from play store my phones didn’t show me the “open with” dialog.
The phones I have tested and that don’t work are Samsung A42 5G with A12, and Samsung A50 with A11.
I laso tested an old samsung running android 8.0 and on that phone works correctly.

so no fix for this issue?
how do I report the bug to f-droid developers?
thanks.

Here, I guess: Issues · relan / fennecbuild · GitLab (right @relan ?)

thanks, I’ll report the issue.
