  • The go-to extension for all who want an organized link collection on their new tab page without compromising their privacy. No redirecting your links, no ads, no trackers, just the launchpad you want, and for free. (It's also possible to support the developer via Patreon which is entirely voluntary. There is only an understated mentioning of this on the options page - no nagging in any way.)

    NelliTab is fast and easy to work with. After setting up some basics all you need to do is get your bookmarks in order and you're good to go. Any changes you make to your bookmarks will immediately be reflected in your new tab pages. For me this is the first time I even use bookmarks - I had cultivated a local HTML startpage before - , and I quite like it!

    This concept also mixes well with Firefox's new "Pocket" functionality. I have started using bookmarks for more permanent links, like news portals I visit regularly, while I save specific articles that I want to read later or archive for specific purposes to Pocket.

    I was in brief email contact with the developer regarding a small bug (?) I had encountered and which was fixed in less than a day while maintaining polite, helpful and clear communication. That kind of responsiveness went above and beyond even my highest expectations. In turn I am happy to support the project with this review. Go NelliTab!
    Thank you! =D
  • Awesome addon that was exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks for your time in creating this, Thomas. I didn't want to rate it any less that 5 stars, but I did find one small bug that maybe you can fix easily. In Firefox 67.0.4 if you bookmark about:profiles or about:performance it will cause NelliTab to crash and not show any bookmarks at all. If the about:profiles or about:performance bookmarks are deleted through the normal bookmark manager, NtelliTab will once again show all the bookmarks normally. Cheers!

    Edit: Latest update works perfect within the restrictions of Firefox. For anyone reading this, it took the author less than a day to respond and fix this bug. Many thanks and I wish you great success.
    Hi, thx for your feedback. I will write a fix asap.

    Update: Should be fixed in 2019.13.754. But please note in Firefox an extension cannot open such internal URLs. Chrome does not have such limitation. Thats why e.g. the right sidebar in Chrome has much more (internal) links for quick access than in Firefox.
  • Long-awaited solution that does Speed Dial good and with style, like (even better...) in Opera.
  • Fantastic addon! Very good that it uses the native bookmark folders as its "data source", so that bookmarks and folders are easily synced between computers. The only additional thing I would want is a way of synchronizing custom icons between multiple computers.
  • A great extension. Some feature need to be reworked (folders for exemple) but it is an awesome extension.
    Thx for the feedback! Please could you write me an email to info@nellitab.io and let me know your ideas/problems e.g. for the folders etc? BR Thomas
  • Changing backgrounds automatically on day/night schedule would be great...
    I will add simple dynamic / time-shifting wallpapers in next release.

    Update: Added in 2019.10.
  • Great work. Can we have more rows than 1 for the Top Sites session?
    Thx for the feedback!

    NelliTab first release was for Chrome and the API returns only 10 Top Sites and since first release and making it compatible to Firefox i never improved it or checked if the limitation exists in Firefox too. I will put it on my TODO list to check if it can have more than one row.

    Update: New options "Rows" for top sites is now available in 2019.5.
  • Great extension, just need to be improved and enriched enough.
    Well, I installed it and used happily for few days. Than I started to experiment with color settings and suddenly everything disappeared and at add-ons page where settings of NelliTab should be only little circle is spinning indicating extension is trying to do something but it can't complete and everything is blocked, so even reset button is not accessible.
    For now sadly I have to say bye-bye to NelliTab and wait for solution/improvement.
    I use Firefox 66.0b3.
    I am sorry, that NelliTab is not working anymore.

    Please note in Firefox 66 Beta there is e.g. a regex parsing bug in main configuration file which causes the issue you described above, that most extensions marked as "invalid" and already installed extension do not work anymore. I had the same issue with my Firefox Developer Edition.


    I can only recommend to not use any Beta version.

    But of course i cannot eliminate that you hit another bug in NelliTab, but if the bug occurs in Firefox Stable as well please let me know, i try to fix it asap.
  • Thank's! This is the best solution for visual bookmarks!

    Needs more interactive: Make, rename and drag groups and bookmarks in the general window. Pls!
  • Классный плагин визуальных закладок.
    Он позволил быстро перейти с Фаст Диал при обновлении ФФ выше 56 версии. Указываешь корневую папку и все :)
    Из пожеланий:
    *Сделать скриншоты страниц сайтов в иконках закладок как у Фаст Диала. Легче воспринимаются визуально.
    *Сделать открытие закладки в новой вкладке (опционально вкл-выкл).

    Cool visual bookmarks plugin.
    He allowed a quick switch from the Fast Dial when updating FF above version 56. You specify the root folder and that's it :)
    From wishes:
    * Make screenshots of site pages in bookmark icons like the Fast Dial. Easier perceived visually.
    * Make the opening of a bookmark in a new tab (optional on-off).
    Thanks a lot.

    Added a new option "Default link target" in 2019.2.
  • Exactly what i was looking for. A speed dial light and simple with icons instead of snapshots (like safari speed dial). You can choose whatever icons you want. A lot of options, no "pro" version or "lite" version just one simple free version. Very beautiful and customizable. Keep up the good work!!!
  • Keine Einstellung lässt sich verändern. Verlässt ohne Einstellungsänderung das Einstellungsmenü. Schade, die Idee ist gut aber funzt bei mir leider nicht.
    War der Welcome-Screen noch geöffnet funktionierte die Einstellungsseite leider nicht, sorry. Fehler ist behoben in 2019.1.

    (Options page on new tab page was broken if welcome screen was not closed, sorry. Issue has been fixed in 2019.1.)
  • Отличное дополнение, увидев его я решился на переход на мозилу, да именно из-за него. Четыре звезды ставлю лишь потому что не нашел функции резервного копирования/восстановления. Если учесть что я 2 день уже под себя это чудо подгоняю, то потерять все это-утрата
    Так-как это beta то не хватает некоторых функций, то что есть сейчас уже можно и нужно использовать, после настройки под себя смог сократить (по виду) рабочее пространство с сайтами, а по факту вышло даже в несколько раз больше. Думаю это лучшее решение из того что есть сейчас вообще.
    Теперь из того что хотелось бы видеть, надеюсь автор владеет русским и читает комментарии, "хотелки" буду писать по степени важности.
    - Возможность делать резервную копию в облаке или локально
    - Больше настроек по отображаемым папкам, сейчас можно выбрать лишь 1 папку самому
    - Более тонкая настройка визуала, например:
    Я хочу создать в 2 строки или столбца мои закладки , сейчас я могу это сделать только если
    закончится место и список соответственно продолжиться ниже вторым рядом
    - Хотелось бы видеть какую либо интеграцию с панелью закладок, быстрый доступ к ним в боковом меню.
  • Отличное расширение и самое лучшее решение - визуализация своих же закладок! Спасибо!
  • Love it!
  • Great extension!
  • Nice alternative to the default Firefox start page. It works well so far. No bugs and stuff. Also, there are many ways to customize the page like changing background and theme. I definitely recommend this one. I have only one request. It would be nice to be able to add sites from the home page without using Firefox bookmarks directly.
    P.S. Sometimes it runs pretty slow, though. Please, reduce the startup time.
