Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But I too am having problems with the rendering of thumbnails (mostly images). In previous versions, the thumbnails would also 'obey' my stylish add-on so i would get google in blue (since that's how it appears when i go there). That is missing now.

I love this add-on! This along with NewsFox have allowed me to hide the Bookmarks Toolbar because all my RSS and main links are nicely tucked away, but still easily accessible. Speed Dial especially has allowed me to reclaim screen real estate, and I don't have to go clicking through the Bookmarks menu. I love all the options for changing things, too.

Echoing TabMixPlus problems Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works, but if you've got TabMixPlus (see above for the fix) it's largely redundant. I suppose if I had a massive amount of desktop real estate at my disposal it'd be a lot more useful, but I just can't see what's going on. It's a bit like having four mobile phone screens on your screen that you can use together at the same time. I can possibly see it being useful for copying and pasting content between a web page and a forum thread, for example.

Really great addon. Exactly as I like it: Highly customizable and highly flexible.

I'm coming from Opera, so I'm used to quite a good but not customizable Speed Dial and this is just what my heart needed to make me love Firefox.

Lovely add-on. Does what it says on the tin and doesn't have some issues that Fast Dial 1.90 has on Mac (FF3.0) at least (slow, adverts spill out onto different tabs - have anyone else exerienced this?)

Had several thumbnails that wouldnt render. Common ones like Amazon, Gmail, etc. Fast Dial renders them all, works like it should. This one averages 5 star, Fast Dial 4 star. Go figure!!

Absolutely lovely! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this extension. Since I use both Opera and Firefox, this was a feature I always wanted to have Firefox too. I tried it some time ago but it didn't live up to my expectations back then. Now it works like a charm!

There are no problems with any other extension so far. Keep up the good work!

I think this is the best add-on for Firefox. Very useful and quick. Better than the one for IE. I would definitely recommend it!

Is it possible to add single key support for the main speed dial page? e.g. when you are on the main speed dial page you can press just 1 for the first dial, 2 for the second, etc. I know you can do this with the ctl and alt keys but when the main screen has focus it makes sense to just press the number associated with the page/dial. Thanks!

Not working in new tabs? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

xatsmann - I had the same problem, and I think its because I'm using tabmixplus. If you are too then try this:

Open TabMixPlus options, Go to the "Events" section and the "Tab Opening" tab. In the "Load on new tabs" dropdown select "User Location" and in the location box put "chrome://speeddial/content". New tabs now have the speed dial in them.

Made a mistake in my last comment! The only way to get it to work is to set the home page as (chrome://speeddial/content/speeddial.xul) as the use current duplicates your previous tab, your previous tab may not be `speed dial` and something else.

Just loaded it again now that it is compatible with Firefox 3. The add-on conflicts a bit with `Tab Mix Plus` which I can`t live without. The speed dial will open in a new fresh browser tab, but open others and you will only get a blank page. I have found a way around this; either set the home page of `Tab Mix Plus` to (chrome://speeddial/content/speeddial.xul) or better yet, have the speed dial page visible and set home page in `tab mix plus` as `load new tabs in current page`, then all is well :)

Frustrating Behavior Rated 2 out of 5 stars

In theory, this is a nice extension. In practice, it periodically changes the focus. For example, if I have one FF3 window open, and I select Tools/Add-ons, after a few seconds, it switches focus back to the main FF window. When I disable the extension, this behavior goes away, and when I re-enable the extension, the focus-switching returns.

I'm guessing this happens when the extension goes to copy the current FF window content, so that it can show the preview in the speed-dial window. I'm also guessing that it doesn't do this for everyone, so it may be that it doesn't play well with one of my other extensions.

Re: Frustrating Behavior

This happens because a website assigned to Speed Dial is requesting focus through Javascript when it's refreshed.

To solve that, disable the JavaScript in the background browser (Speed Dial options panel, "Advanced" section. "Other" tab).

MUCH better than Fast Dial Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fast dial does not allow for tabs so you are limited to one page...only issue is not that i've upgraded to FF3 i can't get speed dial to show up in new tabs...it does show up in new windows but not new tabs and i have it set to show up in blank new tabs under the options so i'm not sure what is wrong...other than that its great.

But FASTDial is better Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This Certainly is a good addon. But FastDial already provides everything this does + more.

bug.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

that is just perfect addon...i love it.
but when i upgraded to last version...it switches immediately to the new opened tab...how can i control that?????

Re: bug..

You should double check the settings. Go to "Tools > Add-ons", and in the list select Speed Dial, then click on the "Options" button. In this dialog ("Speed Dial Options"), go to the "Controls" section, and you can configure anything there, like "Open in new tab", and "Open in background tab". If this is not what you were looking for, could you provide more details by contacting me directly?

Nice, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works great under Windows.
Has some issues under Mac.

Re: Nice, but...

I'm not aware of any known issues, but some website that use JavaScript can create problems. The solution for that is to disable JavaScript in the background browser, which can be configure from Speed Dial's settings panel.
