Trying to switch from Opera to Firefox

Hi pincop,

The same Speed Dial feature in Opera is not a native feature in Firefox, so to get as close as you can to this, you must download an add-on. Here is a recommended add-on that should be close to what you're looking for:

Speed Dial by Nimbus Web

Alternatively, you can customize what appears on your home and new tab pages, but this will not be too close to Speed Dial. Type about:preferences#home into your address bar. Now customize these pages however you see fit.

Let me know if this helps!

Hi Admin,

Thanks for the good advice. Yes, it worked and I am switching over to Firefox (because poor old Opera has been sidelined by WIN10 and is badly limping). Yes, I thanked Nimbus for the app.

Cheers, Pincop

Sure thing! I'm glad that the add-on worked out for you.

One of the Contributors, McCoy, recommends this add-on as well:

New Tab Override (WebExtension) by Sören Hentzschel
