Default start page Firefox

Ciolman 5 years ago updated 5 years ago 11


I'm using FVD Speed Dial within Firefox 57. Is it possible to keep the default start page of Firefox instead of the Speed Dial when I strat Firefox? I wish to use the Sped Dial only by clicking on the Speed Dial button present in the toolbar.

Thanks for your help.

Try to change it in Firefox settings. There is option to select start page



I've already try this. Each time I restore the default parameters or set "about:home" in the preferences, the Speed Dial replaces the default home page after 1 or 2 seconds. If I set "www.google.com" or a blank page it is ok, but not for "about:home".

Is it the normal behaviour ?

Go to the extension settings and copy the address

Open Firefox Settings

Select Home page settings

Replace options.html with newtab.html


Sorry but your proposition is exactly the opposite of what I want ;-)

What I want is to keep the default start page (about:home) when I start Firefox.

Currently I get the Speed Dial instead of the default start page, even if I don't change this setting in my Firefox's preferences.


To turn it off - this setting will be available next update. We plan release it next week.

Great ! I'm looking forward ;-)


Since your last message, I don't see any update.

Some news to come ?

Best Regards.


First of all : Happy new Year ! ;-)

Concerning my question about the default start page, have you some updates to come ?

Hello! We found out that it's impossible to keep both Firefox start page and Speed dial start page in Firefox 57+. In Firefox legacy we had this option, but now it's not possible anymore.


I discovered today that you have been able to set again the "Show Speed Dial on startup" option !

Thank you so much !
