Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.0.8 23.3 kB Works with Firefox 14.0 and later

Note: v1.0.7 was release an hour ago but it has a bug that was affecting fast computers.

Release Notes - v1.0.7
* Sometimes clicking on thumbnails would open the tab within the iframe
* Adds support for about:newtab document changes made in FF31
* Improved the tab feature when search box is visible, if press tab when focused in URL bar it will go straight to search box

Release Notes - v1.0.8
* Fixed a bug where on fast computers, on inital page load, the target of the thumbnails wouldn't be set to _parent ONLY if X'ed/removed out new thumbnails that were dynamically created would get target set properly. I think this only affects fast computers.

Version 1.0.6 16.5 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

+ Option to hide the search field on home page
+ Around Firefox 23 an "Undo" button was added when deleting Thumbnails, however in v1.0.5 this would get cut off, style was adjusted so it is now visible.

Version 1.0.5 14.7 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

+ NEW - Added Jezze's recommended feature to control rows and columns of thumbnails
+ CHANGED - Used littlestarry's idea to make the toggle button stay in the same position at top right

Version 1.0.4 12.2 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

FIXED BUG - Thanks to Alepepo for reporting: When tabs are toggled to hide there is a lot of extra whitespace between the toggle button and the homepage bar at bottom.
FIXED BUG - If new tab is opened and homepage is loaded, and if the tabs are in hidden state, once the tabs are toggled to visible and then clicked, the page now correctly loads in the browser rather than in frame

Version 1.0.3 11.7 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

Much thanks to Alopepeo for the great feedback he left me in the comments section. He had an idea I didn't even think of and he told me exactly how to do it (space saving design).

NEW - If homepage is open and focus is in the URL bar, pressing tab will move focus directly into search box
NEW - An option to prevent focus from being stolen by the search box
NEW - A more space saving design
NEW - Instead of DOMContentLoaded it now uses document-element-inserted thus makes the changes to homepage faster
FIXED FLAW - When clicking the toggle button the space saving design is toggled as well in all tabs that contain the homepage
FIXED FLAW - The lowest supported version should be Firefox 13.0 as there was no default speed dial before this

Version 1.0.2 10.8 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

BUG FIX - Clicking on a site in the speed dial/sites area opens the site in the tab properly now.
