Hi

Is it possible to set placeholders for the Top Sites that I can define the links myself rather than pulling them from the most visited sites I've visited?

I want to hold 8 Top Links on my New Tab page but I want them to be initially blank in other words they don't go anywhere I till I click edit button.

Is this possible? Is there a way of separating the most visited sites from Top Sites buttons? Is there a way to blank all of the Top Site buttons without clearing my entire browser history?

Many thanks

Firefox stores the list of URLs you pin to a tile in a pref on the about:config page.
You can manually edit this JSON formatted list, but you need to be cautious not corrupt it.

  • browser.newtabpage.pinned => websites pinned to a tile
  • browser.newtabpage.blocked => websites removed by clicking the X (Dismiss) button in a tile

You can possibly reserve a tile by using "about:blank", tiles with a null value will be filled from the history

  • browser.newtabpage.pinned :
  • [null,null,null,null,null,null,null,null,null,{"url":"about:blank?1"},{"url":"about:blank?2"},{"url":"about:blank?3"},{"url":"about:blank?4"},{"url":"about:blank?5"},{"url":"about:blank?6"},{"url":"about:blank?7"},{"url":"about:blank?8"},{"url":"about:blank?9"}]

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

This works perfectly.

I've managed to set 24 blank URL placeholders (3 rows of 8) in the `browser.newtabpage.pinned`, save the changes and restart the browser.

I wish this could be a main feature of Firefox allowing users to define the NewTab page links rather pulling them from most popular webpage visits. Even better if something like this was implemented a way of exporting and importing them and syncing them to our Firefox Sync accounts would be really efficient too.
