@leocg It appears I may have been wrong about only six. Touch has been my preferred browser for awhile. I thought I'd only seen 6 starred pages showing on the home page. Evidently I thought erroneously that's all I've ever seen as I can add more than 6.
So then the questions become:
How did I loose all the pages I had starred in the past? Deleting Cache does not remove them.
How do others work around the lack of bookmarks in Touch?
