Speed Dial

Postby Odyseus » Wed May 21, 2014 6:48 am

Description
This is a simple button that creates a menu with shortcuts (menuitems) to websites. I created this button because I was looking for a way to replace an extension that I used as my homepage (Super Start). I called it Speed ​​Dial due to the fact that I've added to it keyboard shortcuts to access the sites.

Compatibility
Tested and working on Firefox Stable/Dev. Edition, SeaMonkey and Palemoon.
Not compatible with Nightly nor Windows Vista

Features
  • Ability to automatically create an item based on the current loaded page. Open options menu and click Add current tab.
  • Items can be added/edited/removed without the need to edit the button itself. Just Right click on any existent item inside the menu and a context menu will appear.
  • Items can be added/edited/removed by directly editing the "items file". This file is stored inside the profile folder and can be opened from the options menu (Edit items file menu item).
  • Ability to set up countless shortcut keys (0-9, a-z, A-Z or any other character that can be entered with a keyboard). Shortcut keys can be accessed/triggered only when the menu is open.
  • Possibility to open/close the menu with a hotkey. Configurable when editing the button (Button settings tab).
  • Possibility to open the menu in the center of the screen (not anchored to Speed Dial's button).
  • The appearance of the menu and menuitems can be customized with CSS through the Help tab of this button. The style sheet can be completely disabled from the options window.
  • Although not recommended nor practical, an unlimited number of items/sites can be added.

Changelog May 4, 2016
  • Changed: Now items can be added/edited/removed without the need to edit the button itself.
  • Added: Items can now be automatically created based on the current loaded page.
  • Changed: Now items are stored in a file that can be manually edited to add/edit/remove sites with any text editor.
  • Changed: Now the items are automatically sorted alphabetically by label name.

Changelog - Updated December 17, 2014
  • Added: A simple options menu acceced by middle-clicking Speed Dial button.
  • Changed: I simplified a little the way sites are created. I removed the need for the "0" (zero) (I forgot to remove it when I was creating this button).
  • Changed: Rewrited check for updates system. Now is possible to auto-check for updates every x amount of days with a delay of seconds after application startup.
  • Removed: Option to chose this button image size. More annoying than useful. It's easy enough to change the image of any CustomButtons button.

Does this button work in Firefox portable 50.0.2 ?

I have installed the custom buttons addon, then this speeddial button, but it will not let me edit either of the existing buttons nor add a new one. The Items window does not appear. Selecting add or edit item just does nothing at all. It does allow for removing an item and the "save changes" item appears. Any ideas what is wrong here?

Hello, Olinb.

You must have installed the Custom Buttons extension from AMO (addons.mozilla.org). That extension is broken on all Firefox version higher than 48. You should have installed the extension posted in this forum.
