Hi DaveS,

That wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

I want to open my E-mail inbox with one click and increase my Knowledge of HTML linking.

Regards Tony

I guess you are not using webmail like Googlemail/Yahoomail?

From the firefox speed dial webpage, right click on the download button and chose "save link as". save the .xpi file somewhere.
Then open seamonkey and drag the .xpi file into the browser window.
You will now have speed dial in the monkey Smile

Thanks trapster,

But if I did that I would be putting my whole browsing history in the hands of google.

The history is there using speed dial or not. Of course you can erase your history every time you use it.

This is true! Just letting some know that the speed dial for firefox works in seamonkey.You did a great job setting this up and I didn't mean to hijack your thread.

No problem. Its great to know we are moving toward being able to use Firefox extensions in Seamonkey.

This seemed like a really good idea, since I use Firefox and Opera on both Puppy and Windows on my main computer. I've used Speed Dial on both browsers for a long time, and I've always wanted to be able to keep them in sync. So I followed the instructions and built a nice Speed Dial page, with a background image. Nice idea, DaveS!

Unfortunately I have one problem that is a deal-killer.

If I set the Speed Dial page as my home page, it comes up when I start the browser. But I also want the Speed Dial page to load automatically when I open a new blank tab. Is there a way to make that happen?

I've been through all the settings in the menus, and I'm going through the about:config items looking for anything that might do it. But I'm not optimistic. Does anyone have a solution for this?

For Seamonkey, you can set that in the preferences. There is a place in the prefs where you tell Seamonkey to load your home page on startup. If you check, it is actually a drop down list, and one of the options is for opening a new tab at the homepage. For Firefox 3* you need an add on called Newtab Homepage https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/777/. At present there is no similar extension for Firefox 4* (yet), so just click the home button on the toolbar while holding down the Ctrl key.
I dont know about Opera though as I never use it.

There's also Tab Mix Plus, of course. Very Happy It wouldn't surprise me if TMP had a beta/dev version out for FF4, but you'd have to check their forum (I just tried, but it wasn't responding Sad ).

A handy Dillo homepage (speed dial)
http://www.jlime.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1063&view=next

found an how-to with an google search box:
Speeddial: Easy Access to Bookmarks via HTML
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=16756

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
an html speeddial like this would be cool for netbooks:
http://www.symbaloo.com/
one could use the appstarter app and mod it to be an icon/speeddial?
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59328
or an button bar?
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22302

for something simple:
Free Online Web Browser Start Page Generator - Cool Tools
http://www.nifter.com/custom_start_page_generator.htm
its more of an "start home page" with search/bookmarks than an speed dial.
