How to organize new tabs?

more options

I would like to know if it is (or will be!) possible to organize the tabs in the "new tab" page. For example, if I want the tab #3 to be in the #1's place. Just reorganize the order as I use them.

For the moment, when I add a new pinned tab, it goes in 1st place, and I want it in the last one.

And I'd like to have more than 10...

Thank you for your help!

You can specify that you want more tiles here:

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

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newt and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesCount preference and enter the desired value (normally it's either 6 or 12) and click OK

As for changing the order, I don't know of an easy way. Drag and drop doesn't seem to work. There is a preference named browser.newtabpage.pinned which contains the URLs of the existing pinned tiles. Editing this preference in about:config has no effect, but if I exit out of Firefox and (carefully) edit the prefs.js file where the preference is stored, at the next startup my new order is reflected. This hopefully will just be part of the interface in the future.
