Whilst much of the focus right now is on Nightly for Desktop, a new feature has been quietly slipped into Nightly for Android.
The ability to be able to organise bookmarks in desktop browsers has been common for many years and, as users have been making use of tablets and mobile telephones, this is functionality they expect to see on the mobile version of Firefox running on Android. In the SUMO support forum it has been a regular feature request, but one that has been complicated to implement…until now.
Further to a conversations with the product team, I am pleased to announce that this functionality is now in Nightly for Android for people to use, test and (if necessary) file bugs!
1 Long press a bookmark and select "Edit"
2 Tap on the Parent Folder option (the bottom one) to either:
- Select the folder location where you want the bookmark to be moved to.
- Tap the “Add new folder” icon in the top right to add a new folder to store the bookmark in.
With thanks to the Firefox for Android team for turning this on for people to test, I hope you get the chance to try this new feature in Nightly on your Android device.
Keep rocking the Nightly (and mobile) web!
