User stories

  • As an OEM or Carrier, I want to be able to populate Firefox's default awesomescreen with my own sites and pages, making those more discoverable for users who have just started using the mobile device.
  • As a user, I want to be able to unpin, delete, or otherwise clear the items my OEM or Carrier has put on my default awesomescreen so it will become populated with my own top sites or content.
  • As a user, I do NOT want items that my OEM or Carrier has added to a default awesomescreen to be synced between Firefox on all of my devices.
