Interesting addon, but still needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars
There are a number of things to like with this addon, a few things that could be improved and a few others that are downright annoying.
I like the ability to close webpages or navigate to another webpage quickly without a lot of mousing movement.
I don't like the fact that my toolbar is totally blocked out when this addon is activated since there are a significant number of bookmarks that I use a lot and it's easier to just click on them rather than use HomeDash to find them. I've gotten past this by using All-in-One Sidebar to load them to the left of the screen.
The really annoying feature is that HomeDash appears when clicking on a field that is to be completed on a form. Originally this was not a problem when HomeDash was activated with a right click rather than a left click.
I've tried to offer input via the proper support section but no one from Mozilla Labs seems to be checking that area (or at least responding).
It would be nice to have a button in HomeDash that would send the website's URL to one's clipboard. I often save URLs for later pasting and it's cumbersome to use the keyboard shortcut to display the URL first and then copy/paste.
