Fennec never given "Use the App" button if user has Google Docs installed
190.85 KB, image/png
1) Install Google Docs app from playstore. 2) Navigate to: https://goo.gl/XDWKfX 3) Click on edit button on top right cornor. Expected Behavior: a popup should appear which will ask to use the app instead of browser. Actual Behavior: On Fennec, its still showing get the app button instead of Use the app button
So it does look like this is a tech evangelism issue -- if you spoof as Chrome it works as expected. Basically it boils down to the following: https://gist.github.com/miketaylr/3835cb5ba53315fcb502 If you don't have the substring "Chrome" or "CriOS", you'll never get the OPEN IN APP link. There's a function Lb which contains: > b = a.wa ? b + "USE THE APP" : b + "GET THE APP"; And a.wa will eventually only evaluate to true if you're on Chrome.

Karl, I'm not sure if Google will fix this, but can we let them know? Also, feel free to close this bug and reopen the webcompat one--I thought this might be a Gecko issue.
Sent an explanation to Google. Let's cross fingers. Thanks mike and swarnava

Swarnava, does it still reproduce?
I can still reproduce this issue on latest Firefox Beta + Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 running Android 5.1.1
Thanks Swarnava. I sent a reminder to Google.
Google's response: > The Docs team is tracking this issue, > but unfortunately usage from Firefox Android > is low so it might take a while for this bug to be prioritized.
And then today someone from the Google Docs team! > I checked in a fix. It should hit production in a couple weeks. Excellent thanks to him.
