Hi all,

A few days ago my phone got stolen and with that thousands of Firefox bookmarks.

IF I hadn't had a tablet with which I sync those bookmarks that is, so all is good. But...

I'm planning to get rid of that very tablet and then won't have an other device to sync with any longer. I think that means that if my phone gets stolen next time I have to say goodbye to all Firefox bookmarks as well. But since society is more and more turning into single device use with smartphones becoming so powerful, is there really no way to deal with this? Can Firefox really be the last company on Earth without the ability to back up settings and bookmarks in the cloud? I mean, I'm getting crazy that every single app has it's own cloud backup, but that's still a LOT better than not having the possibility at all - especially for a security/privacy minded company like Mozilla that's... well... crazy...

My question to avoid total failure next time: Is there ANY way I can have those bookmarks exported and/or automatically backed up? Or can I somehow sync them with a non-existing device and then sync back a week later when I have a new phone?

I'm truly struggling with this one as I don't want to part with Firefox after 1.5 decades. However, in the end my bookmarks are more important to me than my browser, so if I HAVE to move on to stay secure then I'm afraid I will have to go that road... :-(

Your help is much appreciated!

Please let us rearrange top sites and bookmarks on mobile!

Yes, there isn't room for everything on the small mobile screen. But that makes it *more* important, not less, for users to be able to sort things as they want. Having them listed haphazardly in the order I stumbled across them is like Venice's addressing system, where houses are numbered more or less randomly within each neighborhood.

Problem previously documented in these threads, and probably others as well: 9/9/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303690 9/8/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303444 8/25/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301064 8/3/20 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297685 10/14/19 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270637

@Seburo, what is the official take on this, other than "not currently available but may be added in the future"?

On my Samsung S7+ tablet, I recently uninstalled FireFox Nightly. I then installed FireFox from the Google play store. Problem is that when FireFox Nightly was uninstalled, all my homepage URL shortcuts went away.

I thought, OK not a major problem because I had all these websites book marked and it would be simple to pull up the web page and then on the 3-dot menu, select “add to homepage”. Well, nothing can be that simple.

The “add to homepage” option was available and worked as I remember it had worked in the past. However, some of the websites did not offer “add to homepage”. Instead, what was offered was “Install”. While this would put a shortcut on the home screen, there was no opportunity to name the shortcut. I “installed” several different websites, all with the same name and icon.

I also noticed that when I opened one of these shortcuts, the web page would display but there was no evidence (menu or search bar, etc.) that it was opened in FireFox.

See the attached jpg for a side-by-side comparison of the 3 dot menu for the differences.

Does anyone have a suggestion to how to have “add to homepage” for all URLs?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using the Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between my windows desktop and mobile. No problems with the sync itself, but on mobile, I have to click Menu / Bookmarks / Desktop Bookmarks / Bookmarks Menu to see my bookmarks. For a feature that is supposed to provide convenience, this seems to be very inconvenient.

Is there any way to get to my sync'd bookmarks faster on Android?

First of all, I'm in Arizona USA. Not Bamanankan,wherever the hell that is. My question is this, why is it that I cannot transfer my bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox on my mobile device? And by the way, the answers you already provide for this wisdom are wrong. There is no option to 'import from android' in settings as your people say there is. And I don't have chrome on my desktop nor do I want chrome on my desktop. So now what?

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?

I accidentally upgraded firefox mobile beta and now the bookmark keywords are gone. How do I get these back?

I have accessibility software which relies on this. This means I cannot use keywords in the URL bar to search anymore.

I used to be able to add a specific web site address to the Android homescreen, saving me several steps to get there from the web site homepage. Now 'add to homescreen' has been replaced with 'install' a PWA and having a shortcut to the desired web page is lost.

I want to have a shortcut for this link - https://www.brasil247.com/authors/pedro-simonard The 'install' PWA takes me to the 'brasil247' homepage with no address bar and no easy and fast way to get to Pedro Simonard's articles. Before this change was made, I created a homescreen shortcut with the old Firefox that still works to open Firefox instead of a PWA. Or was it a widget Firefox used to have for Android?

Please bring back the shortcut Firefox widget or whatever it was that allows a shortcut to be placed on the Android homescreen.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

The latest update completely broke the address bar suggestions. How on earth is it suggesting things from the history before suggesting sjres that are bookmarked?.. If I visit a site 10 times per day and have it bookmarked, that should be the first suggestion, not some random site that I visited once.

This feels like it's a bug to me and it's kind of annoying to have to minimize the keyboard every single time. Whenever you click on the top site link from your homepage, it automatically opens the keyboard when it opens the side at the same time and you have to manually minimize a keyboard. Keyboard. It shouldn't have to open the keyboard at all because you're already clicking a bookmark link to visit the site.

How is it possible to navigate in the same tab between bookmarks. When I click on the adressbar, it is only possible to enter an URL. I have never enter an url on FirefoxMobile, therefore I use the Firefox and sync them to the mobile. Is there a possibility to go to the "New Tab"-Tab, on an existing Tab?

Open a new tab to navigate to the bookmarks/collections slows FirefoxMobile down (100 tabs means 10 bookmarks 10 times a day)
