Hello @nPHYN1T3, thank you for letting us know about this. What kind of device and OS are you using? If I am not mistaken if you long-press the bookmarks or top sites it asks you to open it on a new tab page. Is that what you want? Can you please share an screenshot so we can further investigate the issue. Thanks in advance.
If you do want to show top-sites (note that these are populated based on your usage/frequency of visiting these sites), you can ensure they’re enabled by going to Menu --> Settings --> New Tab Page --> Show top sites.
Unfortunately at this time there is no way to have specific bookmarks on the NTP.
Top sites might be a half-arse work around if it did what it was supposed to. Shows one site and it’s not the most frequented. Is there any plan on adding a speed dail to the NTP? I mean that’s kinda a basic thing these days and it’s a big one for her. She has a relatively similar complaint about the desktop version where in the NTP is just terrible. Small thumbs and only allows a very small number of sites to be added. However if you use the desktop version you CAN at least add to the NTP, but then you can’t on the mobile? This is a pretty nasty UI inconsistency.
