Please let us rearrange top sites and bookmarks on mobile!

Yes, there isn't room for everything on the small mobile screen. But that makes it *more* important, not less, for users to be able to sort things as they want. Having them listed haphazardly in the order I stumbled across them is like Venice's addressing system, where houses are numbered more or less randomly within each neighborhood.

Problem previously documented in these threads, and probably others as well: 9/9/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303690 9/8/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303444 8/25/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301064 8/3/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297685 10/14/19 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270637

@Seburo, what is the official take on this, other than "not currently available but may be added in the future"?

On my Samsung S7+ tablet, I recently uninstalled FireFox Nightly. I then installed FireFox from the Google play store. Problem is that when FireFox Nightly was uninstalled, all my homepage URL shortcuts went away.

I thought, OK not a major problem because I had all these websites book marked and it would be simple to pull up the web page and then on the 3-dot menu, select “add to homepage”. Well, nothing can be that simple.

The “add to homepage” option was available and worked as I remember it had worked in the past. However, some of the websites did not offer “add to homepage”. Instead, what was offered was “Install”. While this would put a shortcut on the home screen, there was no opportunity to name the shortcut. I “installed” several different websites, all with the same name and icon.

I also noticed that when I opened one of these shortcuts, the web page would display but there was no evidence (menu or search bar, etc.) that it was opened in FireFox.

See the attached jpg for a side-by-side comparison of the 3 dot menu for the differences.

Does anyone have a suggestion to how to have “add to homepage” for all URLs?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First of all, I'm in Arizona USA. Not Bamanankan,wherever the hell that is. My question is this, why is it that I cannot transfer my bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox on my mobile device? And by the way, the answers you already provide for this wisdom are wrong. There is no option to 'import from android' in settings as your people say there is. And I don't have chrome on my desktop nor do I want chrome on my desktop. So now what?

I've just downloaded the latest version of Firefox to my Macbook Pro using OS 11.5.2 and to my Samsung Note 20. The instructions for connecting the devices for syncing includes a step that is impossible to follow as the "Turn on sync in Settings" doesn't exist Any suggestions would be helpful as it appears I can't access my Firefox account other than to sign on on the Macbook without having the two devices linked and I'm finding this just a tad frustrating.

Hi all,

A few days ago my phone got stolen and with that thousands of Firefox bookmarks.

IF I hadn't had a tablet with which I sync those bookmarks that is, so all is good. But...

I'm planning to get rid of that very tablet and then won't have an other device to sync with any longer. I think that means that if my phone gets stolen next time I have to say goodbye to all Firefox bookmarks as well. But since society is more and more turning into single device use with smartphones becoming so powerful, is there really no way to deal with this? Can Firefox really be the last company on Earth without the ability to back up settings and bookmarks in the cloud? I mean, I'm getting crazy that every single app has it's own cloud backup, but that's still a LOT better than not having the possibility at all - especially for a security/privacy minded company like Mozilla that's... well... crazy...

My question to avoid total failure next time: Is there ANY way I can have those bookmarks exported and/or automatically backed up? Or can I somehow sync them with a non-existing device and then sync back a week later when I have a new phone?

I'm truly struggling with this one as I don't want to part with Firefox after 1.5 decades. However, in the end my bookmarks are more important to me than my browser, so if I HAVE to move on to stay secure then I'm afraid I will have to go that road... :-(

Your help is much appreciated!

Firefox on my mobile came up with a new look. It turned out to be 79.0. After the upgrade all my saved logins are gone. FAQ pages tell me to disable the master password (primary password), but there is none in the new Firefox.

I wonder what I had missed, but it looks stupid telling me how to upgrade _after_ the upgrade. So the actual question is: how do I restore/export the logins of the old

Are bookmarks saved to a local device? I had uninstalled Firefox on my android device, and reinstalled in. I must have forgotten to sync bookmarks to my account.when I logged back in, all my bookmarks and saved passwords were gone.

Is there any chance of resorting this info, or was it likely wiped out when I uninstalled the app? '
