Possible opening page of "most visited" sites?

Postby richard mitnick » Sat 04 Feb, 2012 4:13 pm

Because I have two blogs and each has a Twitter account, I am forced to use two separate browsers for the two Twitter accounts. My most recent second choice browser has been Chrome. Chrome has a feature which for a lazy person such as myself is very nice. One of the two possible opening pages is a display of my eight most visited pages. I just click on a page and go.

Is there such a feature available for Firefox, either native to the browser or by use of an extension?

Thanks.

Isn't the Most Visited button good enough? It does not have pretty pictures, but it tells you where you have been, using the button.
And, I know that it works, because, I, accidentally, know myself out of this site, and was able to get back in with a simple click.

I don't know how to capture the picture, but I have a Toolbar below the Navigation Toolbar, i.e. the one where you enter the address. That toolbar is called Personal Toolbar (check View|Show/Hide). Unless you have a button for Home, Most Visited is at the far left. The contents are below

Fulvio-

I could not find a Personal Toolbar.

But, I did get some help, someone suggested an extension called Fast Dial. Install it and it gives the user nine blank panes. Fill in a URL and save it and you have the quickie opener. I don't know who has seen the page in Chrome. There, you get the top eight, what ever they are. And, I think, it stays at eight. In Fast Dial, while the user needs to pick out the ones the user wants, that can be seen as an asset. Also, the user can add as many panes as is desired. But, apparently, the user cannot re size the panes so that, say, a dozen, fits on one page.

The Chrome style page I am told will be native to FF, somewhere between 11 and 13.

I think you may find that the Personal Toolbar is specific to SeaMonkey.

Hello Fulvio,

I have the Personal Tooolbar and the Home button is at the left-hand end. If I remove the Home button by using the Customise option, I don't get a Most Visited button. How did you enable that button? What happens when you click on Most Visited?

Regards,

Dave.

Thanks, Amrad; but, even in SM, I do not see "Most Visited".

Sorry, Amrad, no intention to butt in; however, I did start the thread and I would still like to be educated on the question.

Richard, the Most Visited button is there by default (I always get rid of it) so I'm wondering if by any chance you also deleted it at some point early on when you personalized that tool bar?

Hey James-

How are you. Are you speaking of FF or SM? My original question had to do with FF, then SM was brought into the conversation.

As James said the Most Visited button is present, by default, in both Seamonkey and Firefox. I don't have a Home button in Firefox, but I have a Most Visited button. In both programs, when I click on the Most Visited, I get a dropdown, which shows the locations. It will vary every day, depending on your History. Right now, I have 10 entries, mostly different from yesterday.
I think that I mentioned View|Show/Hide in regard to the Personal Toolbar, but if unchecked you will not see any of the Personal Toolbar items.
Here is an useful piece of info. Most others is my Search were on how to remove the button.
But, you are not the only person who does not see the button. Check this. It may help.
But, no matter what the button will provide a History. In my Firefox, which I use less than Seamonkey,, Most Visited starts with the two Tabs which are my Home (page).
I don't know if there may be differences between Themes.
finally, to test the possibility that the button was deleted, I did just that (right click|delete the Most Visited button, and got it back following the directions here. I recreated the folder, called it Most Visited, and dragged and dropped it in the Personal Toolbar.
