Firefox in background waiting for user's attention when using Expo.WebBrowser.openBrowserAsync(url)


I’m trying out social login with OAuth, and linking back to my expo app with Expo.WebBrowser.openBrowserAsync(url).

After user selects Firefox to log in with his social account, he is returned to the expo app and Firefox doesn’t load the page right away, not before the user switches back to it knowingly.

Chrome and another browser don’t have this problem.

Is this a familiar issue to you with Firefox? Do you know how to circumvent it?

Oh. I’ve just noticed that opening a link in Firefox from other apps works the same way.

Finally it’s a feature of Firefox called Tab queue. It can be turned off.
