If you send an email with an attached HTML file in gmail and go to open it, Firefox is not listed as an option.

To get it added as an option, you have to add the "content" scheme in the manifest:

                <data android:scheme="content" />

But this still doesn't work. You get offered to open the content a second time and selecting it doesn't work.

Note that the content URL itself is only valid on the initial click of the link.

Checking ADB I see a few errors:

System.err: 	at org.mozilla.gecko.GeckoApplication$2.openUriExternal(GeckoApplication.java:236)
System.err: 	at org.mozilla.gecko.GeckoAppShell.openUriExternal(GeckoAppShell.java:909)
System.err: 	at org.mozilla.gecko.mozglue.GeckoLoader.nativeRun(Native Method)
System.err: 	at org.mozilla.gecko.GeckoThread.run(GeckoThread.java:405)

FYI, this came up as an issue with Huawei.

We were able to delay it, but I don't know how long.

This also doesn't work in Focus.
