  • Great addon. I've been looking for a good speed dial addon quite a while and been testing many. This one is my fav so far.

    + Most important: privacy is respected. The addon doesn't track usage nor does it send info about website usage to third-party services what is a must for such a tool.
    + The author tries to use as little rights as needed to make the addon work and he clearly explains the rights in the addon's description.
    + Thumbnails are loaded locally, it's even possible to use local graphic/logo files, i.e. no online connection needed.

    - Cutomising the look and feel, in particular size, of the dials is not yet possible
    - Creating thumbnails from public library often doesn't show results. Maybe another service could be used here (like e.g. https://logo.clearbit.com)
  • I don’t know who is to blame, but now with Update 71 for Firefox, the page with Speeddial began to open with a delay of several seconds. Fix it if possible

    I haven't released new version so this must be Firefox related.
    Things you could try:
    1) restart whole PC
    2) reinstall my extension. But first make backup - export your dials and thumbnails from Options page / Import backup tab. Then uninstall, restart Firefox, install back.
    3) If that won't help, you can use Firefox reset to fix your Firefox profile:
    Resetting profile will preserve your passwords, bookmarks and other important things (but not add-ons data, so make sure to have backup).
    Before resetting your profile I would suggest you to setup Firefox Sync. - this will backup the list of installed add-ons and after reset it will reinstall them.

  • Thank you very much.I was using speed dial in firefox 56 and prior to that.this is the same experience as before.I succesfully imported my dials with the option of .speeddial extentsion. 5 out of 5 stars.
  • nice
  • How to turn off Cloud sync?
    The Cloud synchronization is by default off. It will turn ON only if you create cloud account and login to your account:
    So if you have account, just logout.

  • This is useful and works very well and is a great replacement (with better features) of FAST DIAL. Many thanks !
  • So far so good. There are lots of options and at this moment have no time check all of them. Good job.
    Update - Oh yes Juraj you had a very good idea developing this plugin. At first I thought, well, I'll give a try thinking I already have lots of bookmarks and this might be redundant. No it is not redundant at all. In fact it is much more powerful and easy to maintain and use than the native Bookmarks.
    Thanks again.
  • It's all OK. Very good.
    But with the last Firefox version (70.0.1) I lost all favorite site groups and in the GSD Option I didn't find the possibility to load the old saved setting.
    So I downgraded to Firefox version 70.0.0 and all is now OK.
    If you are not using Cloud server in my addon, then make sure to export your dials to a file as a backup (just in case).
    Have a nice weekend.

  • Excellent add-on, i like that is compatible with other discotninous add-ons and the free cloud sync feature. Highlly recommended.
  • Everything was perfect until I updated FF several days ago, and then Speed Dial started to crash FF and itself also. Now it dont even show my bookmarks and groups, and shows an error.

    Please contact me to my support email if the problem persist.
    But in general this is a Firefox specific error that often disappears after restarting Firefox or whole PC.
    If you can see it even after the restart, then I would suggest you to reinstall my add-on. But make sure to export your dials to a file first - from the Options page / Import backup tab (you can export also your thumbnails).

  • The Best speed dial.
  • I used to love this add-on until the moment I updated my Firefox to 70. Now it is a crap working full of problems. Are you trying to fix the issues?
    Hello Oshoreiki,
    Please contact me to my support email with additional info (what exactly is not working as expected).
    I haven't made any changes for last 4 months, so things should work as before (I'm testing it with every new Beta / Nightly release).
    Also there will be a new version 14.0 released any day now so if you found some bugs, please let me know and I can include the fix in the new version.

    Best regards,

  • Best speed dial we've ever tried. And we've tried them all. It does everything it promises and has no bugs as far as we can tell. It even allows animated gifs as speed dial thumbnails which we love. Fun stuff. It's the only one we use now. Very highly recommended.
  • I'm having crashes on Nightly 71 each time i'm trying to open new page, no matter dial or address bar with addon activated.
    I've just tried it with my Nightly and I can confirm this strange auto-closing tab behavior.
    However this 99.9% not caused by my addon. There is no code for handling addressbar actions (not even permission), so this must be some Firefox bug.

    I tired to reset my profile for Firefox Nightly using Reset button in the about:support page only to find out, the button doesn't work :). Yet another bug... Luckily reset button on the official support page works:
    Resetting profile fixed the problem in my case (make sure to user Firefox Sync. to backup list of installed addons and make sure to backup any addons data, because these are not backed up! So export your dials first).

    Lastly I would like to mention that Nightly is NOT recommended for daily usage and should be used ONLY for testing. You should stick with Release version or Beta (Developer Edition), which contains much less bugs, but sometimes some serious appears as well.

    If you have more questions, feel free to contact me to my support email.
