1. start FF 15.0
2. Click on "+" for open New tab
As result we get the blank page - without FD
How it can be fixed?
Strange that Howard_Roark's comments on Speed Dial and FVD have all disappeared.
I wonder what that means.
Has he too spotted the relationship to TMP

How to get Speedial working on latest version of Firefox (15 Beta) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
by polocanada on August 18, 2012 · permalink
I've seen a few people asking how to get the Speedial working again. Here are instructions how to do it:
Firefox introduced new feature called Top Sites. It is probably a 1st version of this and I hope this will be updated later on to allow more flexibility. Right now this feature interferes with Speed Dial.
To get it working:
1. go to "about:config"
2. go to browser.newtab.url
3. you can change the "about:newtab" to "about:blank" or "about:home" or... that's what we want.. change it to do SpeedDial local custom page which is "chrome://speeddial/content/speeddial.xul"
4. Now it should work again.
Howard_Roark said this did not work for him

FF15 fix instructions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd like to +1 the numbers of people for whom this is THE essential FF add-on. I highly recommend it.
I was desperately looking for an Opera-like speed dial ever since I started using Firefox and we've been inseparable since :)
I've found a fix for FF15. The problem is the Speed Dial isn't loading on a new tab, and this can be fixed by visiting about:config and searching for the browser.newtab.url tag. This needs to be se to the speed dial address: chrome://speeddial/content/speeddial.xul
Mozilla thread on this Fast Dial / TMP issue
New tab was set to open Fast Dial page but since FF update to version 15.0, a new tab now opens a blank tab.
The only other tab related add-on is Tab Mix Plus .................................
And that's the blighter that prevents it working. Funny - when troubleshooting yesterday I thought I'd tried disabling that one.
So, I wonder if it's the about:blank setting within Tab Mix Plus that's impacting the new tab from using Fast Dial
Could be that or the new tab feature that landed in Fx 14. They might have done some update to that that now block Fast Dial. Maybe someone over at the Tab Mix Plus forums will know how to get TMP and FD playing nice together.
Thread already started in the TabMixPlus Forum on this issue
It will be most interesting to what feedback we get.
There has to be a reason for this problem.
Most interested to learn why the problem only started in Firefox 15.
I cannot help feeling that this problem which has appeared first in Firefox 15, is a Firefox 15 issue.
It will be most interesting to hear the views of the TMP Forum.
I will test tomorrow if this issue also occurs in Firefox 14.
It would seem after all that this was a FVD issue.
Please download the latest Version of FVD (3.6.9) and all should be resolved.
So this was not A TMP or Fast Dial issue.
Thanks for all the feedback on this one, without the feedback we would never have known the cause of this problem
pemtagrammer that means you ! :-)
I think one can say that this issue is now closed
