Super Start

A small dial extension for firefox, with a simple todo-list

Super Start is a very handy 'speed dial' extension for Firefox.

From version 4.0, SuperStart supports sites group, this feature works in the same way with iOS and Launchpad (OS X), so it should be more useful than before.

I strongly recommend you read the FAQ before using it, and I'll prepare a step-by-step toturial when I have time :)

Recently Releases

v7.0 - (the latest version)

Feb 8, 2014

Version 7.0 has:

Now SuperStart supports preload the page, so it will show immediately (without flashing)! This new feature works the same way as 'about:newtab' and it needs your firefox version >= 27. If you don't like it, you can disable it by setting extensions.superstart.page.preload to false.

Please note that SuperStart begins to preload about 5 seconds later after a restart (the same with about:newtab).

v6.12.1

Feb 8, 2014

Version 6.12.1 has:

It is a bug fix version.

In the previous version, for issue #28, SuperStart set 'browser.newtab.url' to 'about:superstart'. But it is not a good idea since not every one use tab group, and if SuperStart is disabled or uninstalled, it doesn't get a chance to set 'broser.newtab.url' back. So a new flag 'extensions.superstart.set.browser.newtab.url' is added. If you have the same issue as #28 (if you are using tab group), please set 'extensions.superstart.set.browser.newtab.url' to true manually via 'about:config'.
