When I use the multi-digits dialing then the first digit changes the tab to the relevant number tab and then the multi-digit tab is opened. If the youtube link was opened in the background tab, it is not useful when the youtube video starts playing after trying to open the multi-digits dialing in the new tab.
I really like the ability to personalize. There are many who are moving from "Speed Dial" by Josep del Rio because it has the ability to use the Ctrl with more than a single digit. For people like me, who have 20 groups and more than 200 pages, I find it easy to access them by memorizing the number and only typing it with the Ctrl. I feel that otherwise this AdsOn is excellent, but I still occupy modzilla 57.0 because I do not have that facility in any other AdOns. And to be honest, this is the one I like the most and the one I see the most in the future. I would love to have that option, since it is really very comfortable and makes the navigation very efficient and precise, more when I use 4x4 groups and only my first page has 12 very frequent pages. To incorporate a similar or better solution, not only would it put the 5 stars, but it would change my rating in SpeedDial to promote the use of its AdOn, since that function to many even made them change to WaterFox or in my case, not update to Quantum.
I'm sorry for the late reply (please use my support e-mail for questions, I reply more often there). Regarding multi-digit dialing, this can be enabled in the main add-on in the Options page / Short-keys tab / "Enable access to more than 9 dials".
I know this add-on is not perfect, however due to many limitations in new Webextension API some features are just not possible. But there are more features coming later (especially the multi-digit dialing will need more upgrades...)
Finding this addon was what allowed me to finally update my Firefox. One thing I'm missing from the original legacy speed dial is having the selected number displayed in the middle of the window, basically a visual cue telling me I typed in the number I wanted.
Very good, perhaps I am having one problem; the cursor always get stuck in the address bar. For example, if I get to google from the speed dial with the ctrl + 1 my cursor is always in the navigation bar and not in the search box. The same happens in any web page.
Sadly focus to address bar is something add-ons cannot change and it's fully controlled by Firefox.
However after few experiments I think I've found a way to achieve that (it's most probably a bug), you can now in version 8.3 find new experimental option called "Force focus on page" in Options page / Short-keys. Activating this will always focus the page.
If you have more issues, please let me know to my support e-mail.
Hello, Sadly numeric keys issue is a Firefox bug that I reported some time ago: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1424708
You can up-vote it to get it more attention - so far it has low priority P5 :( The bug has been marked as "good-first-bug" so it's probably something easy to do. If you know some Firefox developer or somebody who wants to become one, this may be a good place to start :)
Finally, the old Speed Dial functionality is back! This is a godsend.
However, I would prefer it if there was an option menu to configure the hotkeys. Currently, the keys are reversed from what I remember: in the old Speed Dial, ctrl + number was to open in new tab, and ctrl + Shift + number was to open in current tab.
Hi Juraj, I was the commenter earlier who couldn't get it to work. I don't know what happened but suddenly it's working.
But your stroke of genius is your control+number add-on. I'm so excited I can't tell you! LOL. I hadn't read your instructions all the way through and was trying to use the number-pad rather than the numbers above the QWERTY keyboard. It is now working great! And the double digit option is even greater!
This is one of the most useful feature for me, thanks a lot! But! New tab opens in the end of the tablist, could you add functionality to open new tab after current? browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent in about:config set to "true", but still new tabs by ctrl+num are opening in the end
Provides basic functionality for the Group Speed Dial Extension by the same author. Like another reviewer, I'd prefer the keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+#) to open each site in a different tab. [Donation sent]
Thank you for your support! Option to open dials in New tab is now available in version 2.1 with new version 7.2 of GroupSpeedDial. Now you can enable this in main add-on in Options page / General / Short-keys / Open in New tab.
