Want to disable [FVD] Speed Dial in new tabs

J T K 5 years ago updated by Gleb Khegay 4 years ago 6

I am using version last updated 20-Nov-2017, having upgraded Firefox and then this extension.

I have my home page blank and want new tabs to also be blank, but Speed Dial shows up.

Searching the web, I see there was a checkbox for Speed Dial in a new tab, but I don't see that in this version. Can you please add this back?

Hi,

Update extension to the latest version:  62.8.5 or Higher
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fvd-speed-dial/

This is the simples option, not always help but we encourage to try. 

- Copy and paste in address bar about:support  
- Select following http://nimb.ws/Vm5pjy 
- Rename this folder to any name and restart Firefox http://nimb.ws/awxfuW BUT don't delete it. Just rename it, for example Storage_OLD

Here is VIDEO

If it won't help, let us know.

Its not working. Followed the steps you described but when new tab is selected (+), mozilla's new tab appears for some seconds and then FVD speed dial, shows up again, with no dials on it this time. The only way to have mozilla's new tab, is to deactivate FVD   :(     which is not the goal here, but only not to take over new tab .
I really hope there is a solution to that, I love your extension and I remember its was an option to disable that in new tab as well to last tab. I understand its mozilla's new way to work, but isn't there any workaround?

Go into Firefox about:config and change browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled to false. This also changes new tab back to classic. Then install a custom tab Add-on that loads a blank tab or other custom tab.


Note: A side effect of doing this will cause the Speed Dial URL to load in the address bar field on the Speed Dial Home page.

The "New Tab Override 11.0.0" works to give me a blank page with a new tab. I played with the config item browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled and its value did not seem to matter. Try leaving that alone and just get the New Tab Override extension installed.

Just installed this SpeedDial thingy, looks nice, but also, I DO NOT what it to be my default new tab, but rather an optional speed dial button

Unfortunately, there is no option to disable FVD Speed Dial in new tab anymore.
