Why is there no way to set a homescreen?!?! This is so basic! How could it possibly be a problem?

This feature was available in past versions. Why not now? How could it be a problem? I'd like to have it back.

That is not possible at this time. Due to technical reasons Firefox starts up with a lightweight Java UI. We don't have html rendering capabilities on start-up.

To avoid loading the home page. Mobile browsing is for emergency search.. so only no Home screen setup... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/getting-started-firefox-mobile
