Firefox Home Page (about:home) Shortcuts
I use 4 rows of shortcuts pinned to the Firefox homepage. I modify each shortcut to best describe the url. Whenever I install Firefox on a different computer and sync the homepage, the shortcuts go back to the default descriptions and mix up the order in the 4 rows. How do I get the shortcuts to stay in the same order and with the same titles after I login for the first time and sync? When they are "unpinned" they go back to the default title and re-pinning them keeps them with the default title. I'd like to be able to re-title them, pin them and then have them show up that way on a new Firefox install when they are synced. Is it possible? Is my description too complicated to understand? I have looked for answers in help but unable to find anything
Changes made manually on the Firefox Home page are stored in prefs that you can find on the about:config page.
- browser.newtabpage.pinned => websites pinned to a tile
- browser.newtabpage.blocked => websites removed by clicking Dismiss in a tile
By default services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtabpage.pinned = true what would mean that browser.newtabpage.pinned in synced to the new device. You can compare this pref on both devices to see whether they are equal or differ.
