@thao.hathi

You can install the .apk to the device then use Start with Application ID instead

I still get error

The application ID of Firefox should be: org.mozilla.firefox not Firefox

Try to add this desired capability to Project Settings/Desired Capabilities/Mobile/Android:

adbExecTimeout : 60000
