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.

Botched Android bookmark backup

I have no idea how or when my Android got an old version of my bookmarks, but they've been somewhat useful though more and more out of date. They don't sync, and I've never seen instructions that are clear enough to feel confident trying. I finally tried tonight and botched it pretty badly. Instead of my Android syncing with my desktop bookmarks, my desktop suddenly contained a whole bunch of old bookmarks, but they didn't exactly match the old set on my phone either. And now my phone has some very new bookmarks, but it also has folders I long ago deleted that WERE NOT THERE before I tried to sync today. So I have no clue obviously.

I did just revert to yesterday's backup on my desktop ... but that doesn't fix my Android. Can someone help me sync ONCE in the right direction and then set this to happen automatically going forward?

Hey people,

in a prev version it was possible to open a bookmark from the list, press the back buttonn on the phone and be back in the bookmark list.

This is not possible in the newest version.

Or is there another way to do that, or did i missed a setting?

Thanks and sunny greatings from Vienna.

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?

When I open firefox, I click on "bookmarks". This opens "desktop bookmarks". When I click on that, it opens 3 others: Bookmark menu Bookmark toolbar Other bookmarks If I click on "bookmark toolbar", it opens "bookmarks". After all of this, I click on bookmarks and it FINALLY opens my bookmark list. Why do I have to go through so many links just to open my list? What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it to only show bookmarks/my list? I have an android tablet and phone. The problem only occurs with android, not with my windows 10 desktop.

Thanks.

Firefox 87.0.0-rc.1

I have a bookmark that I created to an online Bible. I have to create and edit the bookmark, because as soon as I open it, it redirects me to whatever my previous reading location was. The URL I end up with might look like this.

https://www.esv.org/Matthew+8/

Where the URL I want bookmarked needs to just be "https://www.esv.org/".

So I create and edit the bookmark, I have what I want. Whenever I open it, it redirects me to the correct last location.

Now I want to put this bookmark on my home screen. How do I do it?

I see where I can "Add to Home screen" in the menu, but this nets me a home screen button with the entire URL that will always return me to that specific location, not the edited URL that I want.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

Hi,

I've a bookmark of type http://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew When opened it changes to https://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?searchid=(everytime different id)

I want to pin the first url to top sites, but I can only add "open" urls, so I get always the second url added to top sites - and I see no way to edit the top site's url. So is there a way to add the bookmark to top sites directly without opening it?

Can you please help?

Kind regards, Thomas
