Show miniature websites of previously visited websited when I hit new tab.

Posted

The new tab provided a new page showing miniature websites visited previously in the order in which they were visited. Since I installed Firefox 3.6.3 this does not happen when I hit new tab. How can I get this feature back or where can I find it? Thank you very much

Are you referring to the functionality that's provided by this extension, Speed Dial? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../4810/

It might be the case that you had an extension that was disabled when you updated to Firefox 3.6.

See Use extensions to add features to Firefox on managing extensions.

I have just updated to FF 13 and suddenly experienced the same problem. I tried Cor-el's solution but could not find a Google toolbar at all, so coukl not put Google's solution into effect.

However what I did find on a New Tab page was a button in the top right-hand corner underneath the toolbar(s) which dropped down to display just one option: Hide the New Tab page.

I pressed this - and the miniatures vanished and have not reappeared even on restart.
