I'd like to save Shortcuts that I pinned on the homepage tab, for me they are a kind of bookmark but just those that I use few times. I'd like only pinned ones as they are those that I might need again.

Hey @Luca_Pavan, feel free to elaborate on this idea.

A couple things...

Just to confirm, you want to be able to save your shortcuts and access them from your Firefox Account?

How would this be different from bookmarks?

Thanks again! This will really help us better understand your specific use case.

Because actually I can save my bookmarks but not the shortcuts, right? Or they are saved instead and I didn't notice it 🤔? Because if the user pinned some it means that they have a certain importance rather than leaving them simply unpinned.

Maybe not access them from my Firefox account but at least save them on a dedicated section where all my pinned shortcuts are saved.

They are a kind of bookmark, so I'd like to save them. If with this you mean that shortcuts are already saved and I didn't notice it you can ignore this post otherwise you can suggest adding this new category.

I would also like to save my shortcuts.  I was able to do so in the past, but I am having troubles doing so again.

@Jon, after upgrading my Zorin OS Core 16.3 to 17.1 I restored most of my data with my Firefox Account but, as I supposed, not the pinned shortcuts. I'd have liked to restore even them since they are like bookmarks to me. For some users they are as important as bookmarks. @Hibiki, thanks for liking my idea 😀🤝. How you were able to save them in the past? With an extension or exporting them?

I want to be able to save my shortcuts so that if I want to reinstall Firefox due to issues. I can recall them the way I left them. Shortcuts are easy access to the most visited websites. Whilst bookmark is way too messy to access. O usually have 10-20 websites that I go too for quick access in my HOME page on Firefox. So what I have on there is what I usually access.
