Firefox has just updated their Fire TV app to version 2.0, as first spotted by CordCuttersNews. This significant update adds what was probably the most request feature, which is the ability to bookmark pages. The update also makes a few changes to the main interface.
When Firefox first launched on Fire TV devices, it was strangely missing the ability to save bookmarks, despite having a list of favorited pages by default. This has thankfully been addressed with the new v2.0 update since you can now pin websites to the main Firefox home screen to serve as bookmarks. To pin a page, load it in the browser, press the menu button, and then select the pin icon in the upper center of the screen.
This update also adds the ability to remove any of the websites that come pre-pinned by default. Simply highlight the pinned page you want to remove and press the menu button to remove it. You can also do this to pages you’ve pinned yourself. Unfortunately, there is no way to rearrange your pinned pages, so the order that you pinned the pages is the order that they will appear on Firefox’s home screen.
Firefox has also changed its interface slightly with this new update. Gone is the blue sidebar that was previously used to house the navigation buttons and address bar. Replacing it is a new partially opaque overlay that covers the entire screen when the menu button is pressed.
