User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130729175331

Steps to reproduce:

I have an HTC One mobile phone with HTC Sense which includes Blinkfeed. When you tap on a Blinkfeed tile that is, say, a news story, at the bottom of the story there is a "view original story" link. If I click this and choose to open the link in Firefox, Firefox opens, but only navigates to that page if it is the first time that Firefox has been used. ie, most of the time it does not navigate to the story. Chrome and the native browser work as expected.

Actual results:

Firefox does not navigate to the story.

Expected results:

Firefox navigates to the story.

ps, links from other apps, such as Facebook work as expected.
Hi Jamie,

Which version of Firefox are you testing this with? We released a new version of Firefox on Google Play today, does that work out for you? As well, can you try out Nightly for Android ( and report back if that works out for you?

I'm assigning this as QA Contact as I have a One, but I would need to re-flash Sense back from the Google Play Edition stock Android rom.

I'm on the beta channel and have version 23.0 apparently. Using nightly didn't help.
