User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/54.0.2840.100 Safari/537.36
Firefox for Android

Steps to reproduce:

Adding to Home Screen a PWA at a certain URL appears to store that particular URL in the shortcut, and when tapping the icon, that URL is loaded in Firefox, instead of the start_url specified in manifest.json

1. Go to https://www.reservationcounter.com/hotels-pwa/show/152625/golden-nugget-hotel-and-casino/
2. From the overflow menu, choose Page -> Add to Home Screen
3. Close Firefox
4. Launch the PWA by tapping its icon from the home screen


Actual results:

The same URL as above loads


Expected results:

The / URL should have loaded (yes, that's a bug in the site's manifest.json, but Firefox should honor the property, as Chrome does).
