Comment (by igt0):

 The minimum version I tested in a physical device was version 22 (Android
 5.1.1). Version 21 I tested now in the emulator and I see the exactly same
 problem you are seeing. With and Without the onboarding patch, if the
 homepage configuration is added.

 Can you give this patch a final round of testing? I don't have a mobile
 device with me right now.
 > It looks good, but it isn't working the same when I test on older and
 new versions of Android. On a device with API 22 (Android 5.1.1) the site
 is pre-loaded and available when the user clicks "Visit an Onion".
 However, this causes a usability problem because when the DDG .onion
 loads, the browser prompts for installing the DDG PWA.
 > However, on a newer device (API 26, Android 8.1.0), the firstrun panels
 are good but the DDG .onion is not pre-loaded and when I go to the last
 panel and press "Visit an Onion", it does not load DDG - I only see the
 usual activitystream homescreen :( I'm not sure why there is a difference
 > igt0, are you seeing the correct behavior?
