Install ADB helper
The process uses the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) to handle the device-computer connection and communication.
Let Firefox handle ADB (recommended). Install the ADB Helper add-on, which makes the process easier. With this installed, there’s no need to install the ADB, and no need to type the adb forward command: everything is handled by the add-on.
