Before version 79,it was just to mark the star symbol, which is missing in v.79. Or may I'm blind ;).Any support is highly appreciated, in English or German language.

We now have both bookmarks and collections. Both seem to fill the same ecological niche, i.e. allow me to remember pages that I might want to visit again in the future.

What is the idea behind having both? When should you use bookmarks over collections? When should you use collections over booksmarks?

I never understood why FF eliminated the “open with” option within Android. So as a work around I bookmarked my files by navigating to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”. But now you can no longer navigate to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”, it appears blank. My bookmarked files at these locations return a blank screen as well. Why does FF continue to make it more difficult to open local storage? How can I bookmark an HTML file saved on local storage?

I need to do the simplest thing. I see a web page I want to get back to later. I bookmark it. Later today or tomorrow or whatever I try to find it. And that is borderline impossible. It's not something I categorize or file away in well defined folders for future reference. I just want to read it later. It it's go e, lost in no particular order in a cast list of bookmarks. All I want is to find these fairly recent bookmarks, read, and delete. Is that simplest of actions not possible?

HTC EVO 4G for Virgin/Sprint

In order to access my bookmarks, I hit the address bar then bookmarks... but then have to hit the back button to make the keyboard go away before the bookmarks sh up. Am I doing something wrong, is there a more efient way to bring them up, or should this be redesigned? I've had lots of glitches with this phone, so I won't be surprised to learn that one of these two issues is related to it. I'm tired of being a droid beta tester with every new release argh! Anyhoo, Thanks in advance

Need to overlay computer's booksmarks with Desktop Bookmarks from Android phone

Ever since I started using Sync (around 12/9/12), the bookmarks on my computer have been hosed up. There are duplicate/triplicate/etc. folders & bookmarks all over the place. The Desktop Bookmarks on my android phone look fine though. I'd like to export them from my phone & import on my computer though, from what I've found so far, this is not possible.

Since I noticed the problem I've saved all new bookmarks to a new folder and exported to html/backed them up a couple times. If I understand how Sync works, my bookmarks are on a server somewhere. I would hope this includes a backup of my bookmarks BEFORE the first sync was ever attempted (yes, I know, I should have done so myself)! The easiest thing would be to go back to my bookmarks as they were PRIOR to ever sync'ing. If I could get that far I could manage to bring in those created later from my backup.

I've been going around and around with this since I discovered it...Any input will be appreciated! Thanks!

I am trying to transfer my firefox mobile 18 bookmarks from my old android phone to my new android phone. I have tried looking for an export option firefox mobile 18, but I only see an 'import from android' option. I have also looked at firefox sync, but from what I understood firefox sync requires a desktop.

I do have a desktop, but i do not wish to sync the firefox desktop and firefox mobile bookmarks.

I want to pin the BBC weather mobile site to my home screen for quick access.

http://m.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643743

If I do this from within Firefox then I get an unattractive, generic bookmark symbol on the home screen. It works but doesn't look nice.

If I do the same thing from the stock browser the generic bookmark symbol doesn't appear. The symbol is a BBC logo pulled from the website.

Why is this? Is it a bug?
