I have a Samsung A2 and I'm having trouble adding sites to my home screen. I am able to add YouTube.com to the home screen by going to YouTube.com, clicking the menu, then clicking Add to Home screen. I then have a saved Firefox launcher on my home screen that when clicked goes directly to YouTube.com.

However when I try to add other sites there is no option to add to the home screeen. I'm trying at the moment with Lichess.org and there's no Add to Home screen option in the Menu.

I found this post (see attached) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267519 which suggests going into about:config to change a setting, but when I enter about:config into the browser I just get a black screen.

These are the addresses of the two sites. http://m.youtube.com/# and https://lichess.org/. Is it not working because the Lichess site isn't a m-dot site?

What is going on here and how can I fix it?

I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

Hi,

There used to be recommended sites when opening a new tab which I believe belonged to Pockets. I really enjoy this feature on my Desktop FF. On Android it disappeared with a major release sometine this year. I was hoping this feature would be reintroduced since FF can monetize on their Ads as well. Current installation is v.82.1.1

Regards.
