I love the tiled window displaying my favorite pages when i open up a new tab in firefox 13 update. Is there a way that i can have more than the 9 displayed at a time? Maybe have 12 or 15?

Chosen solution

Future Firefox versions will have that feature.

You set the number of rows and columns that appear on the about:newtab page by modifying these prefs on the about:config page via a double-click in Firefox 17 and later, Firefox 17 ESR supports this.

There is no built-in way to change the number of page thumbnails on the tab. However, someone might develop an add-on to tweak the new tab page if there's a lot of interest.

Hi DextroWombat, you might look at existing add-ons in the speed dial/fast dial category to see whether any of them are now compatible and offer more flexibility. If they don't increase the number of thumbnails, maybe those authors would consider adding that feature? They have a big head start on other add-on developers.
