I like the idea of Firefox View, and I especially like the ease of accessing closed tabs and tabs from other devices, but I can't help but feel it's slightly redundant to have a dedicated page for this when all of these would be welcome as options on the New Tab Page. I would welcome them at least.

Yes please!

I find the New Tab page absolutely useless. I even used addons like "Tabliss", but still it's a useless few for me.

Firefox View is a nice addition, especially the Tab Pick feature for me, as I work with several devices. Accessing View via opening a new tab would be a convinient way.

Also in FF view the closed tabs, can we make it easier to reopen tabs? Example, for mouse users, I should be able to click on multiple closed tabs using the middle click of my mouse to reopen all tabs that I click. Currently you have to left click and that takes you straight to the tab and the you have to come back to do it again for a different tab. ctrl+shift+T is faster than that. Please consider.

Not to mention it is all (and has all been) available within 2 clicks in the menus. It's fine, since there is a config option to disable it; but, given Mozilla's history, I expect the flag to be deprecated within a year.

That's a new idea - has nothing to do with replacing the new tab page with this page: your idea is to modify the page. Your idea will get lost, this isn't rocket science people!
