Like on Fennec, user user be able to delete default bookmarks in Firefox iOS app.
This was WONTFIXED in bug 1188563 did we change our mind?
I don't think we were happy with the resolution there as a long-term solution, but had to make a call for v1. Complexity aside, these default bookmarks should: a) not sync b) be delete-able
I agree with Darrin. On Android, we're able to delete them and I'd rather provide the same degree of control to our iOS users.
This is relatively straightforward; we can just store deletions in user defaults, and check those before adding the suggested sites as pseudo-bookmarks to the end of the model. I'm reworking some of that code in Bug 1201109, and it will change again for full-fledged Bug 1196238, so this ought to wait until that churn is done.
BTW - we had a user send through an idea in Aha where one of his points touched on this. He's frustrated that he can't remove the two default Top Sites thumbnails (same reason as the bookmarks, I know). His stance is that he doesn't keep his history and he's feeling forced to see Mozilla sites when he has no interest in them. He wants some aspect of his experience back under his control.
Create AHA card -> 2.0
Was mentioned to me a couple times by a few different folks in Orlando as a gripe
Will investigate technical details to scope for 3.0.
Took them out altogether and replaced with the empty bookmark state
