front page in new firefox?

Posted

I been using Firefox for quite some time and love it. But before I upgrade to this new Firefox, I would like to know...

Are the old "tiles" retained in new Firefox?

tiles are like bookmarks to a page displayed in a empty new tab. Here is a picture of what im talking abt...

Last version, they took away auto-refresh timer on a tab, I still miss that. I used it on a weather page, so I always know the latest weather in a glance. Now I have to remember to refresh the page when I look at it.

ah, actually, this is for a Windows 8.1 pc

a popped up window asked if I want to upgrade to latest Firefox and made me think abt front page. Thats probably one feature I use the most in the previous version of Firefox.
