while the tabs are great, it is a little bothersome that I can't seem to be able to set the home page to our network page, without using a bookmark shortcut.....

There are no direct way to set a home page. That being said there is a way to get the same effect.

  • Make sure that the page is in your history
  • Tap in the address bar
  • Search for the history item
  • Long press on the history item
  • Select "Add to home screen"
  • Use this bookmark shortcut to launch Firefox.

It says no more room on this screen and all the old short cuts are still there

Thanks :-) l had already taken that route, I was hoping to find a solution I could spread across the several droids that have sprung up on the network... still diving into all..

sam4 You'll have to swipe to a new home screen to the right or left of the one your on [one thats full] it will then plant the bookmark there, OR start a folder on the full home screen by dragging app shortcuts on top of another will auto make a folder... i.e. You can group all your audio/video apps together... then drag your productivity apps together... web apps..etc.

Question owner

your talking about the first screen that appears when you open ff with the tiled list of pages? Did you long press on the bmarks and bring up the command list available?
