How to add a shortcut to a website on Android

Firefox lets you create shortcuts on your Android's home screen so you can quickly access your favorite websites. It eliminates the need to type a web address every time you want to access the site - just tap on its shortcut to open the page.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Open Firefox for Android and go to your favorite web page.

Tip: If you want to change the label on your shortcut, bookmark that page first, then change its title on the Edit Bookmark window. On the Bookmarks panel, do a long tap on that site and choose Add to Home Screen.
