I've just installed the newest Android version of Firefox for my new phone i.e. 29.0.1. The new version has some updates that require new sync function. So I did it successfully and can see my bookmarks on phone.

However, the bookmark function is supposed to allow tag input when I make a new bookmark by clicking at "star" button but there is not. Also, the autofill function does not show accordingly to my bookmark tags available in my Firefox account i.e. in desktop browser. It seems like this tag function is totally removed from this version 29.0.1

Is that true? I need some confirm or methods to enable this function again. I move to use Firefox because I take for granted this great feature of it.

Moreover, I'm not sure about the goodness of current version but it's hard to access settings of Firefox. Why do users have to bother remembering syntax like about:config or about:something ... to access those settings? it is not interactive and convenient?

All the sites I use are conveniently bookmarked in the "Bookmarks Toolbar" of Firefox for windows.

The conveniently sync with Firefox for Android but it takes a minimum of 3 accurate presses to get to the bookmarks toolbar and then I must scroll though all the folders to get to the sites that are easily accessible in the Bookmarks Toolbar of Firefox for Windows.

In short, I just don't bother to do it and I am not maintaining 2 bookmark lists.

I understand why you force us to use the "awesome" bar by default when Firefox for Android starts. You have future plans for it and want to train users to go there. I don't want to be trained and you are close to losing my support of myself and perhaps many.

We should have the option to have FF for Android open directly so the Bookmarks Toolbar is visible and it should take one press or less to get the the same sites I see in FF for Windows.

I have a problem with syncing. Because of a problem I had with my laptop, I had to reinstall all my programs including Firefox. I had synced it previously with my Android phone. My phone now has all my bookmarks on it. Is there any way I can get those on my PC? All the info I have found is how to get info from PC to phone but not the other way around. I don’t want to click Disconnect on my PC in case I delete any wanted info. Also on my phone the listing for Firefox comes up Firefox (deprecated). And checking on how to set the device on the phone, that information does not help.
