Hi I've just changed phones and I'm trying to customise my Firefox homepage to how it was on my old phone. I select a bookmark, click on the option to add to the home page, give it a title and it confirms that it's been added to the home page. But when I return to the home page, the shortcut is not there. Am I doing something wrong?

"Tab closed" popup covers button to close last tab in Firefox for Android

I believe this is a bad interaction between my Device's theme and Firefox's behavior. In Firefox for Android, whenever I close a tab, a "Tab closed. Undo" popup comes up. This in and of itself isn't too bad, but the problem is it's *exactly hovering over the last tab*.

So if I want to close multiple tabs in a row, I can do that for any tab *except* the last one. If I want to close the last two tabs, for instance, which I often do, I have to tap close on one of them, wait 5 seconds for the popup to close, then tap the second.

I've tried tapping on this popup, but it does nothing. It would be nice if tapping on the popup closed it. But ideally, the popup would not obscure the "close tab" button on the last tab

Maybe the popup could push the tabs up, so it's under them rather than on top of them? To be honest, I don't care what the solution is, just offering some.

Sorry to rant - it's just very annoying for what I find to be a very common UI interaction with Firefox for Android. I'd really like to just be able to close my tabs in any order, without thinking about it, and without waiting 5 seconds between tabs for a popup...

I'm using Firefox 90.0.12 on a OnePlus Nord N200 5G running Oxygen OS 11.0.0.0.DE17AA (Android 11).

Stop repetetive "Accept Risk" for mkcert SSL certificate?

In my dev laptop I installed an SSL cert using mkcert. Works fine in all desktop browsers. They don't even prompt to accept the "risk" and continue. But in my Android phone on the same LAN (with the dev subdomain in dns) I get that prompt from both Chrome and Firefox. That would be acceptable, except Firefox prompts pretty much every time I return focus to the app. It gets annoying having to click two extra buttons (Advanced then Accept Risk and Continue) for every code change that needs to be tested in all browsers.

Is there any way to make Android Firefox permanently accept the cert or any other solution?

I didn't find a suggestion section, please move the post there.

Please, return icons for search engines as was in Firefox <69 and how it's implemented in Vivaldi. I really avoid to update Firefox to "big update" when you changed everything such as interface and addons and themes support. Use themes as earlier would be nice, but without normal search engines icons UI became unusable: list of engines takes more space, search suggestions in list take more space, I must click twice (type a request, click on search engine, click "search").
