Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
Build ID: 20160106231004

Steps to reproduce:

Expected results:

There should be a way to add URLs to the New Tab page. There are websites that I'd like to add, but don't visit often. These websites are not shown, because I don't visit them frequently.

In short: Copy Opera's New Tab page, but keep the good parts of Firefox (pinning recently visited websites).


Actual results:

At the moment there is no option to manually edit the URL or names of the websites on the new tab page.


Expected results:

There should be a way to edit websites on the New Tab page, using a Right-click. This is useful in case I want to edit the URL of a pinned website, without having to visit the specific URL multiple times.

Sorry for the ugly description, just ignore everything except the bottom "Actual results" and "Expected results". I was in a hurry.

As workaround, you can drag & drop the website favicon in the New Tab Page to add it as new thumbnail.

I don't think the tiles should native support to edit the name and URL.

Power users can use the https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-tools/, if needed.
