Why do I keep losing the ability to start on home page?

Few years ago I had Firefox set to open to home screen every time I clicked Firefox on the task bar, even if Firefox was already open in the background. That worked great for me. Now it only lets you do it after four hours of inactivity or something. Or when you close all tabs, which also takes way more clicks now when it used to take none.

Then until this morning, actually, I've been keeping a shortcut to Firefox home on the bottom of my phone's the home screen right above Firefox in the taskbar. That worked okay for me, but I'd have preferred it like it used to be.

Today clicking that shortcut says "Shortcut isn't available." So I opened Firefox home screen to make another shortcut, but I can't.

I just want Firefox to open automatically start on the home screen. Because that works for me. Why does it keep getting harder and harder? And what I can do now to fix it?

Hi,

The feature in the title was missed by A LOT of firefox users with the new overhaul. Now its still not in there and its making me doubt if it will ever be and with that if firefox will stay the go to browser or just finally give up on it and move over to brave.

I heard the feature was being tested in the night version of firefox yet i cannot find that feature anywhere in the nightly version nor can i find what the status is, if it really is being tested.

Can anyone give an update on this? Or a link where the status is posted ?

Thanks in advance

I've Googled this a few different ways and the results don't seem to be up to date, because I'm not seeing what I should be.

I'm using Firefox on Android, and I want to download a page to view offline, but can't see how. Google results tell me to go to the menu to find the option, which must refer to the three dots in the top right, but it's not there. I'm attaching a pic of what mine looks like for reference.

Thanks in advance for the help.
