Hello, I'm sorry in advance if this feature has already been asked for, but here goes:

On Android Firefox could you please add a Share Button when browsing a website with Firefox WebView from another app like Reddit? It's really weird to have to first "Open in Firefox" than be able to actually share the link. I'll also leave a picture showing exactly what I mean.

Thanks in advance!

Another vote for this feature. It's really weird that the share button is absent from in-app browser!

Strollin' around

It would increase Firefox on Android usage a LOT if we have a SHARE button as soon as the user clicks on a link in the main URL adress bar at the web browser. That would be super useful and really simplify sharing links with family and friends over instant messaging (whatsApp, telegram) as well as SMS and email for family and friends.

Similar to what we already have in Google Chrome for Android: (section "share page with others"). Thank you in advance!


Hi Connect! I want to share some updates: soon the share button will be now at your fingertips instead of buried in the menu. These changes are part of the updates to the Android Navigation. Stay tuned!
