https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-web-page-shortcuts-your-home-screen indicates that to add a bookmark to my Android home screen, I should navigate to the desired website, open the three dot menu and click on "Add to Home screen." I have successfully done this in the past. But now the option is missing from the menu. I am using Firefox Daylight V 91.1.0. The option still shows up and works in my Andriod Chrome, but not in my Android Firefox Thank you in advance for your ideas.

Hi

If you select Install, a shortcut will be added to the Android homescreen.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you so much. This was exactly what i needed.

On further exploration, I have found that the "Install" option is a one time tool that adds the "Add to Home screen" option in the menu. The next time that you open the menu to save a link to your phone's home screen, the "Add to Home screen" option will show up in your three dot menu.
