Steps to reproduce:

Feature request: add NFC support to WebAuthn for FIDO2 keys

OS: Linux, Fedora 32
FIDO2 key: YubiKey 5C NFC
NFC reader: ACS ACR1252 (GPG and Yubico Authenticator works fine with it)

  1. Open any WebAUthn demo (I use https://webauthn.io/)
  2. Enter login, click Register
  3. See WebAuthn popup from Firefox
  4. Put key on NFC reader

Actual results:

Nothing

Expected results:

Firefox read the key and pass it to the WebAuthn demo site

There is a workaround for this. Using https://github.com/BryanJacobs/fido2-hid-bridge I was able to scan my NFC token with a USB reader and have it authenticate with a WebAuthN service.

It would be great to see this built in to Firefox. Running a Python script every time I want to log in isn't a great experience.
