OK, this may not be the right place to post this, but I am exhausted on ideas. it is likely a whitelist issue, but damned if I can find it. I have
<allow-intent href="https://*.firebaseio.com/*" />
everything woks fine in an emulator, localhost, just not on the physical device. I connected to the app running remote device with chrome-tools and did see that I am not connecting to the firebaseio.com server. I see
Failed to load resource appname.firebaseio.com/.lp?start=t&ser=94215074&cb=12&v=5 Failed to load resource appname.firebaseio.com/.lp?start=t&ser=94215074&cb=12&v=5
I have updated everything. Ionic-cli 2.2.3, angular 4.0.0, angularfire2 4.0.0-rc0 still same errors.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
