How can I get my bookmarks back on the home/start page? Alternatively, how can I migrate bookmarks to collections?

NOTE: Existing solutions provided in the forums which were based on about:config usage have been effectively thwarted. Please provide suggestions which work for the Release version. (Yes, it makes life more difficult)

Hi

To add a top site to your Firefox for Android homescreen, tap the Firefox browser menu and select “Add to top sites”.

To add a shortcut to your Android homescreen, tap the Firefox browser menu and select “Add to Home screen”.

If you are looking for about:config, I recomend that you try the Nightly version, available from the Google Play store.

Is this an end user or developer forum?

Recommending end users to install a nightly build is outright dangerous. Just a tiny mistake in the project data management, and the whole user profile is gone.

To the actual question: Why do I have to manually add all the pages again which I already had as bookmarks? Why is there no migration offered?

Hi

Bookmarks were migrated and can be found under bookmarks in the Firefox for Android menu.

I do not believe that top sites on your home screen were migrated.
