Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.

Why is there a repetition of 'customise homepage' menu. It appears both on home screen and in the menu bar. Very annoying very bad. Very much unexpected. Just dump this. We don't need this menu on home screen , let it be where it belonged.

Different news outlets on my home page

Why do I not have any control over which news outlets are on my home page. Every article is from Fox News and I am not interested in anything that News outlet is putting out. I am a Democrat and the page all of the sudden the past few months have almost all been from Fox News which is obviously a Republican and Donald Trump loving News outlet. So I am wondering why do I not have the option like in the past where I could choose which news outlets I would like to read from? It's kind of creepy to me that I would be sent almost every article from Fox News. Is there any way to change it? I know it might sound like I'm a nut but I promise I'm not, I'm just surprised by this whole situation. Thanks.

Ugly "customise homepage" button with latest update

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.

Dear Mozilla Firefox team,

I am writing to request a feature for the Firefox Android app that would allow users to follow a homepage wallpaper from the gallery. This feature would enable users to customize their browser experience by choosing a wallpaper that suits their preferences and mood. The wallpaper can be choosen from the image gallery of User. This feature available in edge browser android

I think this feature would enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of the Firefox Android app, as well as increase user engagement and satisfaction. It would also showcase the diversity and creativity of the Firefox community, as users could submit their own wallpapers to the gallery or vote for their favorites.

I hope you will consider adding this feature to the Firefox Android app in the future. Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely, B R Shriradhakrishnasharnam (A Firefox User)

Option to Rename Shortcut While Installing Web App (as Add to Home Screen behaves)

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?
