Why is there no way to set a homescreen?!?! This is so basic! How could it possibly be a problem?

Posted

This feature was available in past versions. Why not now? How could it be a problem? I'd like to have it back.

That is not possible at this time. Due to technical reasons Firefox starts up with a lightweight Java UI. We don't have html rendering capabilities on start-up.
