¡Órale! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've yet to download this extension...but...I was browsing through Mozilla's Add-ons, I noticed--you know how it is here--that you're actually responding to the comments. Awesome! A lot of these other extension authors don't take the time or plain don't do it, and that's why your humble gesture is greatly appreciated.
Oye José, mantente humilde; sigue siendo buena onda.
Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Since installing it, I haven't looked back. It's a good piece of software and I can't live without it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.7).
Very useful, does exactly what it says. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love speed dial in Opera and this does exactly what it says: It adds speed dial to Firefox.
Really adds to firefox functionality Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just wanted to say how much I like this add-on.
It really is very good, I don't know how else to say it, it is very good.
Great software, responsive developer Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been using the Opera browser for a while and decided to give Firefox another whirl. I saw there's a speed dial extension, which is one of my favorite features native to Opera. I installed in on my Mac, and quickly found the hotkeys didn't work. I read through the discussions and saw that someone else had the same problem and the developer, Josep del Rio, said to email him directly for support. So I decided to email him, too....he responded right away and directed me to an updated version which fixes the hotkey functionality on the Mac. This is exactly what I am looking for in both software and a developer! Thanks so much for the assistance.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.2).
Speed Dial getting more and more unusable Not yet rated
As the title says, Speed dial is getting worse and worse. Pages don\'t refresh any more and stay blank, after closing the last tab, speed dial did not show at all (this old bug re-appears). The rendering of the pages is really ugly.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.2).
Re: Speed Dial getting more and more unusable
Try downloading version 0.5.0.7 at http://speeddial.uworks.net/mirror.html . That should solve the first two problems. About the rendering, I added an option to the version I mentioned to use the old method. Unfortunately, the latest Firefox version (184.108.40.206) has a bug that will prevent that method from working. The rendering quality is highly improved if you use Firefox 3 beta 1.
suggestion: option to replace the jpeg with simple buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great add-on! I like to use many dial-up buttons on the page and for this reason the jpeg assigned to each page is becaming unreadable because the size is decreasing very much. The question could be if is possible to replace the jpeg capture of the entire page, with a crop made by me, or even better: if is possible to disable those jpeg and use some color pallete for the buttons, some text edditing option (size,font,color). Thank you for your work!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.2).
Doesn't work with all sites Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Spins and spins on just the second site I added. (www.dpreview.com) I suspect this isn't the only site that gives it trouble. Also, small rendering of pages is really poor.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.2).

Speed Dial and IE tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very good extension.
My only quibble is that there's no title nor thumbnail for IE tab sites, just an IE icon and (untitled).
Some banking sites work better in IE tab and I've configured them to use this.
I can set an SD to such sites and it works. However I need to hover over the SD to see what it points to.
As I have just one SD set like this, it's not much of a problem for me.
Thanks for the extension.
I've also noticed a change in behaviour in the latest release.
I quite often used to close the last tab when I'd finished with one subject and wanted to bring up Speed Dial (I have Speed Dial configured to open in new tabs). I found this simpler than opening a new tab and closing the old one.
In the latest release, I just get a blank tab and no Speed Dial.
I prefer the old behaviour, but that's just my preference.
Re: Speed Dial and IE tabs
Unfortunately, the method that Firefox uses to create thumbnails is not compatible with IE Tab... nothing I can do from the extension side.
bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I, also cannot use the nav. bar. Plus, when trying to open a new tab, it goes straight to Speed Dial. How can I disable it?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.1).
Sorry about the navigation bar bug. It was solved in 0.5.0.1, and was caused by a conflict with IE Tab. I tried to fix it as soon as I could.
As the speed for Speed Dial has improved a lot since the last release, I decided to activate the option to load in new blank tabs by default. Deactivate it in the "Main" tab in Speed Dials settings window.
Outstanding + Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Not only is this one of the finest EXT.'s of it's kind, but the author actually cares about his work. Today there was for the first time a conflict with an update. I contacted Josep about the matter and was resolved within 30 minutes. Now I am sure this will not always be the case, but this author in my opinion went above what should ever be expected from a developer of EXT's.
The hours that these people put in for us at no cost is often take for granted.
I cannot give thanks for everyone... but you have my utmost respect for your efforts.
Josep, again thank you for your time today.
Any developer that needs some free ad space for a project, feel free to contact us and will look into your project.
After the update, firefox wont work Not yet rated
Speed dial has been working very good to me since I installed it last week. As I opened my firefox today, it has an update for speed dial but after updating it, any address I type in the address bar would not work. No matter how I hit enter button, the is no action.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.1).
Re: After the update, firefox wont work
Sorry about that... this was caused by a conflict with IE Tab, which I worked to solve as fast as I could. Things should be working fine in version 0.5.0.1
Newest one is a little buggy Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The newest Speed Dial is a little buggy, 'cause if I start the FF with a blank page, it will not work. If I in FF open a new window / tab, it will work again.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.2).
Re: Newest one is a little buggy
Well, it works fine for me... However, it might be a problem with another extension (maybe a session restoring extension?).
SD is outstanding. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The new version is what I need to handle tabs (although, as with nearly all new software versions, it has a few problems).
I set up Firefox to start with only 3 tabs, one for Yahoo mail, one for SD and a blank one. I can click on the SD tab and then load the links I want loaded in tabs by clicking once on the center mouse button for each and ending with a final click on the left button. Slick! I stay on one screen and the tabs end up in the order I selected. And I don't have to sort through a bunch of tabs to find the one I want or to load them all and remove the ones I don't want. Also, I can close all tabs and easily reload a new selection.
I recently contacted Josep and found him extremely responsive. He gave my concerns great care and attention. He has my thanks and highest accolades.
Very good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I really like this extension. Just one problem I would like cleared up though.
I have a number of sites (especially at work) that require authentication before any pages will be displayed. Normally, Firefox will keep me authenticated when I start a new tab, but Speed Dial doesn't appear to pick up the authentication so no thumbnail is ever displayed - the site eventually times out in the thumbnail.
I'm not bothered about periodic updating, but can I have a way of creating an initial thumbnail by authenticating in Speed Dial. There's no need to save passwords...
Thanks for a great extension.
Great Extension! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This quickly has become my favorite and most used extension. It just has one problem, sometimes when you right-click to refresh (or refresh all), it does not work...other times it works. Fix that and this will be a big 10 in my book! Thanks for the hard work!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.1).
No Refresh Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Nice feature (the one thing I like about Opera brought to Firefox) but never got the Speed Dial page displays to update - kept showing same old, same old pages unless I refreshed manually. Needs auto refresh.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.1).
Re: No Refresh
You can configure the automatic refresh per thumbnail (edit the dial and set the amount of seconds).
suggestion Rated 4 out of 5 stars
make it a firefox start-up option.
then we can have these start-up options: 1)homepage;
2)blank page; 3)speed dial page; 4)last sessions
Yes, that would be the most integrated solution. However, you can make it work by setting your homepage to Speed Dial (and start up with the homepage), or set Speed Dial to "open in blank new windows" and set the window to start with a blank page.
A Must-Have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
When I started to use Speed Dial, I had several little issues. But apparently, to Josep del Rio, the developer, little issues do not exist: ALL issues are big issues to him, and he really goes out of his way to solve them immediately. Very responsive and helpful.
Speed Dial is really an essential extension to me now. Thank you, Josep, for this great add-on, and for things to come :)
Re: A Must-Have!
I never had this problem... It's probably a conflict with another extension. Could you send me your installed extension list, so I can find the problem?
Recommended Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is just something you cannot live without. Works well with the Google web accelerator, as the links are prefetched, so they load almost immediately when you click on them. A huge time saver.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.1).
