Hi,

Is it possible to save/export (and then restoring) the home screen icons/shortcuts without using Firefox sync?

I want to save its state on my disk so I can restore it later, after formatting, for example. I don't really use any sync features and I actually don't want to sign up for yet another online service if I can help it.

Thanks a lot!

This is only possible with webpages you pinned to a tile.

Changes made manually on the Firefox Home page are stored in prefs that you can find in about:config and you can keep a backup copy of its value.

  • browser.newtabpage.pinned => array of websites pinned to a tile
