There is no greyed out "Bookmarks" when Top Sites show up.

So I took a look at "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-bookmark-folders-firefox-android#mobile::m68" and according to the instructions there should be : "Rename or move a Bookmark folder

   Go to the Bookmarks panel on your home screen.
   Press and hold on the bookmark folder you want to change until the menu appears. "

However there's no greyed out "Bookmarks". It just lists my top sites, when I attempt to type "the" in the browser URL bar. I can only uncheck/check the star to add/remove the bookmark. I, however, need access to my bookmarks from my desktop so I can browse through them.

Firefox synch is working just fine, because I have the bookmarks, and stored passwords show up when I type in Firefox Mobile v68. I just cannot browse to a particular set of bookmarks that I use for reading my magazines. I can only do that from the computer because I never remember the site name.

I also cannot access android history of sites visited.

There's also no "Home" button, so I cannot go to my desired home page.

Hi EMR, could you look at your "Home" settings here:

Firefox for Android menu > Settings > General > Home

Below Panels, Firefox lists Top Sites, Bookmarks, and History. If Bookmarks or History is grayed, tap it to call up a menu and tap Show.

Does that work?
