http://www.liberiangeek.net – Yesterday we showed you how to use Speed Dial in Google Chrome to speed up web browsing. Today we’ll show you how to use the same Speed Dial extension in Firefox to help enhance your web browsing by allowing you to quickly access your most used websites. Speed Dial is a Firefox extension which allows you to organize your most used websites onto the homepage for quick access. It also allows you to virtually browse your favorite websites without typing a single web address.     To get started with Speed Dial, open Firefox and click Tools, then select Add-ons.     2) Type ‘speed dial’ in the search box, then press the Enter key. Next click the Add to Firefox button to install Speed Dial.     3) Click the Install button to install  Speed dial.     4) Click the Restart Firefox button to apply the changes.     5) Check the boxes as shown below and save.     6) At this point, you’ll see blank boxes. These are placeholders for your favorite websites.     7) To add websites, right-click on an empty box and select Edit. Next enter the website address in the box as shown below. When done click ok.     After adding some websites, this is how my look. A single click will take me there.     9) To edit the overall layout of Speed Dial, click Tools –> Add-ons. Then select Extensions and click Speed Dial options.     Speed Dial is cool if you need to enhance your browser homepage. It allows you to quickly access favorite web pages with a single click. Enjoy it and come back soon.   Join the forum discussion on this post — (1) Posts (HowTos)
