OAuth redirecting problem in Firefox

There seems to be a problem with opening the embedded Shopify app in Firefox,

It's been a long time since we've used our App properly in Firefox, since a few days ago when users wanted to open our App in Shopify in the Firefox browser,

they are redirected to a strange page like the screenshot.

And I don't know why it added adminNext=true at the end of the app url.

It should be a new change in Firefox new version. But I don't what exactly.

The App can be opened in Chrome-browser without any problem.

I can confirm the same problem with embedded app in latest FireFox 72 version.

But this seems to be caused by an error in Shopify script . 

You can see the error in the below screenshot from FireFox Developer Console.



 if I remove this "?adminNext=true" parameter added to the end of this broken page URL then the embedded app loads perfectly fine!!! We don't add the adminNext param as the OP also mentioned.

So clearly this is something caused by Shopify redirection script as seen in the errors below.

This is the link to script causing the error

We are also facing similar issue with our shopify embedded app development using Firefox browser. Our problem is it "Fails by continuing to refresh or redirect". It seems to be a cookie problem in Firefox browser. However in our app we don’t use cookie.

Our temporary fixed is
we tried to set the Firefox manually by entering the about:config then set below to true:


By doing that, refreshing issue is gone.

We are still looking for a right fixed with this issue. We don’t have problem using chrome even using their latest update about cookie samesite to none.
