Hi ruthiesea, it depends on whether you want to open a bookmark in the same tab or a new tab:

  • Same tab: tap the address bar, and Firefox will display the home screen. Then tap the star icon on the row below the address box to show your bookmarks.
  • New tab: tap the tabs icon on the upper right, then the plus button. Firefox should open the new tab showing the home screen. Then tap the star icon on the row below the address bar to show your bookmarks.

Do those work for you?

Oh, there is an article on this, but it doesn't say "bookmarks" in the title so I missed it on the first try: Home screen on iOS - access search and favorite sites in one place.

If I tap the star icon, I only have entries!

I don't understand your comment.

Do you mean that you want to bookmark the current page instead of looking at existing bookmarks? There is a star icon on the main top bar (not in the home page) to add a bookmark for the current page.

I setup syncing with my Mozilla account, the sync was done and I can only see 2 bookmarks instead of the 1000+ which should be there :)

Hi emerge3d, could you start a new question about the Sync problem? It sounds like a different issue and this one is already marked solved.

I notice there is no Separators which are in the desktop version. History & Tabs are properly implemented but Bookmarks not so great...
