    Didn't see any permissions that might be blocking this? Any ideas?
    Thank you

    Do you mean that the Firefox browser can't create a home screen shortcut icon on a Moto Z4?

    I don't know about Firefox for Android but with Chrome you have to select the 3 dot menu icon > then the option to Add To Home Screen is available.

    Thank you Sajo. I'm gonna try some things. I looked for permissions, but will check back. I don't know if a secure sight matters, i.e. https, it not.

    I just downloaded the Firefox browser to my phone. I selected the three dot menu > Page > Add page shortcut > and then there is the option to add to home screen.

    Is that what you tried? Are you on a home screen that has enough open space to add the icon? Did it add to a page to the right instead?[​IMG]
