Hi everyone,

I'm trying out Firefox for iOS v26 and when I open a new tab, I want to see my Bookmarks rather than Top Sites. The help section in the support pages here states that a New Tab can be configured to show a variety of different setups. However, in v26, Firefox Home, Blank Page and Custom URL are the only options displayed.

Is this expected behaviour?

I know I can browse through my Bookmarks to open the page I want, but it would be more convenient to have them displayed, just like I have setup in Safari.

Any ideas?

Thank you for al the support - such great people helping out with Firefox!

After syncing my open tabs in my devices, I need to send back the old iPhone(6s) after now updating the newer iPhone10r.

Once I zero out the older phone (to send it back to the service provider), will the newer one lose the synced tabs (from the 6s or will they be retained?

Have Firefox/Mozilla as browser. Was using Yahoo but it wasn't the default page. On the top of the Firefox page, I was able to have several tiles to click on for frequently used sites. Below them I had Pocket and a daily list of pocket essays. Is it possible to have these wonderful tools again on a new site? If so, how do I set them up?

Thank you, cmacc
