- by Firefox user 13252485, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 51 or 2 stars out of 5 Here's why. It Stalls Firefox literally causing firefox to crash or freeze for extended periods of time, the only fix is to disable the fucking thing and reenable it. It lacks MAJOR Aspects of Control and Functionality. You cannot Freely place the speed dials where you want, it automatically organizes them as you add them though you can reorder them you cant have a gap and you cannot manually add rows only columns. The Search Bar is by far the worst aspect of this addon, It defaults to a Yahoo Search That you cannot change! and if you remove the addon all of your previous bookmarked dials are gone unless you manually back them up. I don't understand why this addon has the highest rating among all the other speeddial addons there's got to be better out there that do not have these flaws or lack of support. The addons website has been spammed with countless requests to have the search bar alone changed but nothing ever gets done on this addon I do not believe the author cares to support it any further. I have been through the C:\Users\PC\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\mtedj9hc.default-1538016545511\extensions\firstname.lastname@example.org yeah thats right the creator saved the addon file as his email address, in an attempt to find and edit atleast the search bar to default to literally anything else then yahoo but my knowledge of coding in this language is limited.
Things that need to be changed:
Adding Dials attempts to autofill the url.
This lags out the addon, Solution remove the autofill or fix it to not lag out.
The Search Bar is locked to Yahoo;
Solution is to give your users the ability to select or change what search engine they want to use
Speed Dials are Locked to positions;
Solution is to remove this lock all together and enable adding of Rows not just columns
The addon constantly lags or freezes after using apps like Netflix or other online streaming services;
Solution maybe code in a better language? I dont know what would fix this.
- by Firefox user 12406621, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5I like it - I don't like that it hijacks my tabs til I give a review or remove it and I almost did. That could make me hate& remove it! I would like to have given it five stars except for that. Please change it I want to rate on my time, not yours. The five stars it shows made me think that it was going to automatically record my rating as five stars and that my only option was to select "don't show this again" -
- by Firefox user 14341771, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Nice graphics but when i type in the url box on startup the speed dail steals the focus and it takes prox 4, 5 sec before i can try again. i used speeddail 10 years ago, and it was fast... tried to switch to simple view, but i cant find it in the (extensive) settings.
Also, it doesnt (auto) sync. With the other FF and Chromiums. So its back to the old bookmarkbar for me.
Running linux mint 17.3 kde firefox and chromium latest.
- by Wildrat, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5This add-on used to work great before the new and improved FF came about. I have this set as my home page and when FF starts it's a toss up if this loads or just a blank tab. I f it one of the occasions in which something works it still takes a few seconds to load in the tab. All this started after the new and improved FF.
- by Firefox user 14289759, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Not bad visually, but does not let you choose the built-in search engine. It uses Yahoo! Worst search engine in existence for privacy. They stand on street corners bribing people to hack them, just to say relevant.
- by Lee_at_the_beach, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5I really like the convenience of this app but it causes several problems with Firefox, especially if you use a lot of dials. It causes Firefox to load painfully slow and it uses a lot of memory and resources.
Worse, in the last couple of months it has caused random secondary instances (new Firefox windows) to pop up! I contacted tech support regarding this issue and never heard back from them!
And I know it's Speed Dial causing the problems because all the problems disappear, including the random popup windows of I turn Speed Dial off.
If Speed Dial worked correctly and wasn't such a hog I'd give it 5 stars. Given how buggy this app is I can only give it 2 stars.
- by Firefox user 14174652, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Работало в firefox 61.0.1 (64-бит) нормально, неск. дней назад стали самопроизвольно открываться новые окна. Это не вирус, 99% косяк расширения: открываются дилы из одной только группы.
- by Firefox user 10283585, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Every auto update of the dials displays the browser window in the foreground :-/ This is very unpleasant when you for example watch a movie in fullscreen..
- by PBC, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Globally speaking this is a nice extension although not as good as Superstart was. The one area I found that really lets it down is that when restoring from a backed up .spd file, none of the custom images stored on local disk are respected. As I use Mozilla Firefox and Comodo's IceDragon it would have been nice to keep both identical. For those that do not know IceDragon, it is just a secured version of Firefox.
