In relation to Firefox for Android. I don't like panels so how do I get my homepage/startup/newtab page set up? I want to open up Firefox and see the website I selected, not a panel listing sites, needing extra clicks. I succeeded in removing the panels in the windows version and getting my homepage back but in Android I'm stumped.

Hello out there ! I made a LOT of bookmarks yesterday ( July 7 '15 ) and there's nothing under bookmarks or history for yesterday. What happened ? Why was nothing saved ? Are they somewhere else maybe ? I worked a long time on the NASA site ( app ) and thought I had saved a lot of material to work with. Any suggestions will be appreciated ! Thanks for your attention. Kathy

HTML5 Custom Homescreen Icon + Mobile Web App

I've been learning HTML5 Game Development, and have a question about Firefox for Android: How would I get a custom icon for a bookmark added to the home screen? It looks like Firefox either uses a favicon, or a default star.

On iOS Safari, I was able to accomplish this using <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="image.png" />, and the functionality seems to carry over to Google Chrome.

I tried using this code for a custom favicon on a specific page: <link rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon' href='favicon.ico' /> but it only works when I view the file directly on the computer. When accessing the page through Apache, there is no favicon.

My other question was about Mobile Web App functionality. In iOS Safari and Google Chrome for Android, adding "apple-mobile-web-app-capable" or "mobile-web-app-capable" lets the webpage run as a fullscreen web app when saved to the homescreen. Firefox just opens it like a normal bookmark.

Any help is appreciated. I'm learning from the book 'HTML5 Game Development for Dummies.'

I use ghostery, and selfdestructing cookies on the latest firefox mobile for ICS version of Android. I want selfdestrucing cookies to stop alerting me when it destroys a cookie. I also want to move the ghostery icon from the low right of the screen, where it gets in the way and I accidentally click it, to the upper left where it won't bother anything. Neither app will save the settings though. Not even after clicking save. Ghostery is the biggest annoyance.
