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).

I was able to reproduce the issue on all Firefox versions, using the steps to reproduce provided in the Description. Device: Nexus 5 (Android 6.0.1); Builds: - latest Nightly 53.0a1 (2016-12-05); - latest Aurora 52.0a2 (2016-12-05); - Beta 51.0b5; - Release 50.0.2.
This is going to be fixed as part of bug 1234558.
