Weird thing on Android phone (1 Viewer)


Staff member
The site works fine on my phone but now I have put a link on the home screen it has gone weird.

When I click on my other home screen favourites they just open up in my default browser, Edge. But when I click on the Birdforum link it opens in it's own "app" with no browser tool bars and no access to my other browser tabs. When I click on a web link in a Birdforum post it opens in another toolbar-less window and I have to the one menu and pick Open in Edge to actually open it in Edge.

I can access the site in Edge through my browser favourites but as soon as I add a link to the home screen I get the weird behaviour above. A quick Google would suggest it is something to do with site settings.
