In the upper right corner of the page there is a "gear" or "wheel" or "cog" button to open the settings panel for the page. The panel there allows 1-4 rows.

While you can add more rows through the back door, the method to do so is more obscure so let us know whether you need that.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

More info on about:config: Configuration Editor for Firefox. The moderators would like us to remind you that changes made through this back door aren't fully supported and aren't guaranteed to continue working in the future.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste topSitesRows and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows preference to display an editing field, and change the value to 5 or whatever value you wish, then press Enter or click the blue check mark button to save the change. I don't know the internal maximum for this setting.

Note that the interactive UI cannot display values other than 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Hello! You can do that by:

Open a new tab>> Type in about:config in the address bar>> Click Accept the Risk and Continue>> Type in browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows >> Double-click the first one>>Type the number of rows you want

    • To revert this when something breaks, follow again the steps above, but instead of double-clicking just click the bent arrow in the right of it

for the rows horizontal it does not work so mozilla-firefox is blocking this somehowe , however on the other side the columns maximum of 16 vertical does work properly , now what to do to get also the same amount of 16 rows horizontal ? do you know anybody who can fix this please ? i love firefox but slimjet is giving this option in the preference box !!! hope you have an answer to this .

16 rows (of 8 sites across) works for me. If you aren't getting 8 sites, you may need to zoom "out" (reduce the zoom). I don't think there is a way to get more than 8 site across.
