    I have a Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 A running android 7 and I want to place a short cut onto my home page. On my older tab S 10.1 after bookmarking a page I was the given the option to add the bookmark/Shortcut to a home page. Not all the sites that I look at have apps. so it is convenient to go through the short cut.
    I still get the option to add a short cut on a home page but it just doesn't happen.
    I am running Firefox browser.

    Advice appreciated. Chris

    Thank you and please register so we can better help you. When in the browser go to the page you like then hit 3 dots on right and scroll to add to home screen. I am on a keyone but should be the same.

    I am running Firefox 50.0.2 and there is no mention of adding a shortcut to the homepage from the dropdown list.

    Sorry I found add page shortcut but the shortcut doesn't appear on the home page.

    I do...

    Tap the 3-dot menu at the right of the address bar. Tap Page, tap Add Page Shortcut. On mine (fresh install of Firefox) I'm prompted to long-press the icon and drag it to wherever I want it on my home screen.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Thanks for the reply. The problem is I don't get a icon to drag anywhere. When I get to add page shortcut the screen changes to a home page but there is no icon there which on my previous Samsung Tab S used to happen.

    So, when you tap the add page shortcut menu item you don't get the screen as seen below?

    No I don't. All that happens is the page that I want a shortcut for just doesn't appear just goes to home page with no icon.
