[Pcsclite-muscle] Firefox does not trigger pcsc start

Good day.
I am working on bringing back Estonia Open ID software stack on Fedora
The main packages are:
qesteidutil [1] [2] utility for Estonia ID cards
qdigidoc [3] [4] utility for signing documents
firefox-pkcs11-loader [5] [6] helper script for Firefox that sets up the
browser for authentication with Estonian ID-card
chrome-token-signing [7] [8] Chrome and Firefox extension for signing on
the web using Estonian ID-card

pcscd service automatically starts when qesteidutil or qdigidoc are
opened by the user.
Instead pcscd service does not start when you use Firefox (Chrome is not
part of Fedora packages). So you have to manually start it with command
# systemctl start pcscd

Do you have any idea why there is this problem with Firefox?
Best regards
