How do I scan a QR code with Galaxy a12?

I use Firefox and when you open a new page there's an option to scan for a QR code.

If your phone doesn't have one installed you can go to the play store and download one.

Look in your apps.

Also look in your camera app.

over 2 hrs. with 2 different reps telling me what SHOULD be happening. interminable holds. final solution: new phone ordered and on the way. neither rep would admit that the problem was widespread but there seem to be a lot of queries on the subject. modern CS sucks.

every time i have did anything with a QR code i just pulled up my camera and it auto sensed it when i aimed at it.

I'm another who has an A12 with NO built-in QR scanner.  There aren't any switches mentioning QR in my camera or indeed  anywhere on my phone... except that after an afternoon with Samsung tech help I ended up turning on a QR capability under developer options that was supposed to  fill in for what I'm missing but actually only wants to do what it says: "Pair device with QR code". Frustration continues. The many free apps are full of 'accidental on purpose' clicks. Hate 'em
