Local files in browser widget

Thanks Ralph, I did create a 64-bit apk with LC 9.5. I've had a couple 
of people try my test app. It works on a Pixel 2, and a Moto-something, 
and my Huawei tablet. So far it only fails on my Pixel.

If anyone out there happens to have an (original) Pixel phone and is 
willing to do a quick test, that'd be great. The apk has a single 
browser widget with a lot of text, and the test would be to see if you 
can scroll to the bottom. I'm hoping the problem is my particular setup 
and not the Pixel model itself.
