Can we have the opportunity to add a wallpaper in the new tab view? Like chrome or edge, that you can upload a picture and use it as a background in the new tab.

Homepage Background

Firefox is lagging way behind Chrome and Edge in having the option that Chrome and Edge has in a simple easy option of using a image you have from your computer files as your firefox homepage background.You would think my now in 2023 firefox would have the option of a easy option as other browsers do.. Without having to do a long workaround which I have done.. But I shouldn't of had to and I'm sure there are a whole lot of firefox users that would like to but may not have the skill or knowledge to do a long workaround.. It's a inconvenience to do it and it shouldn't have to be if y'all would keep up with the other browsers. And I think with all your freaking updates that maybe just maybe firefox finally woke up and smelled the coffee and finally did it.. But nope nope nope.. A big disappointment firefox is.

Bring back the screenshot option it was really helpful at some specific point most i use to be on YouTube and Instagram where i use this feature by add ons but those are not that easy to use as yours was.

add an option for adding wallpapers on homepage or by itself by internet to make this monzilla more attractive and a VPN feature too as Opera browser have for safe browsing

Thanks for the suggestions, @SuperSaiyan!

The option for adding wallpapers is currently being explored by our product team - hoping to share updates soon.

And for your other requests, you should already be able to use the screenshot feature. Here is more info: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/take-screenshots-firefox

We also offer a Mozilla VPN - check it out here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/products/vpn/

Hope this helps!

I do not want to set the wallpaper every time. Firefox (on desktop and mobile) should get the wallpapers from Unsplash.com in each new tab.

Add a background image option so that we can customize and set the background images in the new tab view on both mobile Firefox and desktop, for example in Edge and Chrome we can upload an image and use it as background in the tab.

There's no excuse for firefox not have the option that most other browsers have.. Other browsers have had it for a long tine it's not like some new technology that just came on the scene.. You would think that firefox wouldn't want and allow their competitor's to have some option that they don't offer too.. That's just commonsense something apparently firefox is in short supply of.. Causes the only reasoning is that the higher echelon of firefox is making some bad decisions due to they don't care or incompetence.. Something so easily could be done isn't done and it's not like they haven't heard enough firefox users not complain about it..

It's unbelievable that not a single version (iOS, Android, Windows, Mac) of the Firefox has the option for Wallpaper. I don't understand why Firefox developers are so ignorant about theses feature requests, when everyone is asking for these features.

The same is relevant for Firefox for Android in addition to the dull abstract pics selectuon. On desktop, I recommend Ablaze Floorp instead of conservative Firefox

Firefox's own new tab page

My suggestion is that Firefox's own new tab page can be populated with a background image of your choice from your hard drive. One can orient oneself thereby at the speed dial of Opera, that would also require that one sets a homepage as bookmark in a speed dial folder when setting bookmarks. The bookmarks in the speed dial folder are then visible each time you open a new tab.

我希望搜索欄和地址欄可以分開,我不想在搜索框中輸入文字它反而跳上地址欄上面,因爲在搜索欄輸入的文字會大一點,在輸入時有更直觀的感受,可以幫助我更好的查看是否有輸入錯誤;另一個建議是希望外觀可以做的更美觀,比如可以給用戶加一個可以更換Firefox首頁背景的功能,或者在主題裏面帶有背景壁紙,美麗會吸引他人的關注,希望Firefox越來越好。

I hope the search bar and address bar can be separated. I don't want it to jump to the address bar when I enter text in the search box, because the text entered in the search bar will be larger, which will give me a more intuitive feeling when typing, which can help me be more precise. It is good to check if there are any input errors; another suggestion is to make the appearance more beautiful. For example, you can add a function for users to change the background of the Firefox homepage, or add a background wallpaper to the theme. Beauty will attract the attention of others. I hope Firefox gets better and better.

possibility to have personal picture in firefox white page.

i have been forced to try and swap over to firefox due the insane amount of addblock spam blocking on google chrome

but i want the possibility to have my own personal photo when i open firefox. i want to see my own photo instead of a horrible white screen with search field. i want the option to personolize your own web browser background? like in google chrome browser. ive been trying to figure out how to swap to my own picture but i cant figure it out so i am writing this here becouse i wish it was an option an easy click option as it is with google chrome if you know about it. i cant seem to find the possibility here.
