Anyone find a way to get the popup "Install this website as a web app on the app screen" to stop popping up on every single website you go to on Samsung Internet???

@ZebulonDal22 I haven't seen anything like that. Can you provide a screenshot of this happening and/or a website that this happens on?

@ZebulonDal22 That is weird. For troubleshooting you could try booting in safe mode. If you don't see this while booted in safe mode, it is caused by a 3rd party app.

How do you boot in safe mode? And when you do, after I check do I just restart and then it's back to normal?

"How do you boot in safe mode?"

Swipe down from the top of the screen with 2 fingers. Click the power button. Long press on the "Power Off" button until the "Safe mode" button appears. Click "Safe mode".

"And when you do, after I check do I just restart and then it's back to normal?"

Yes

"How do I find out which app it is?"

That can take a while. You can

  1. Delete a group of them
  2. Test.
  3. If you still see the issue, repeat steps 1 and 2. If the issue is gone, the troublesome app is in the last group that you deleted.
