Hello! Please, implement the built-in speed dial, like in Opera and Vivaldi. It's extremely convenient and useful, lots of people need this. I've been using Firefox for more than 10 years and I hate your stupid "Firefox Home" page (sorry) on desktop and Android with icons that add automatically and I can't change and locate. It's inconvenient and completely useless. It would be great if you create something like Opera 12.17 or 12.18 had. In addition, please remove the "close" button in the last tab. I know that I can do it via the "config mode" (browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab), but it's not user-friendly. It's inconvenient when you close the tab just to return home, but the whole browser closes. It makes me nervous. Thank you in advance! You are doing a great job, wish you good luck, and hope that one day Firefox will be more popular than Chromium-based browsers.

Hi, two things:

(1) Mozilla opened a new "Ideas" site for product suggestions. On the plus side, it allows for voting and comments, unlike the old one-way mailbox. On the minus side, search is terrible, so duplicates accumulate. But, it's what we have for now and you can share the link of your idea to encourage people to vote.

https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/

Note that it has its own login system and doesn't integrate with Firefox Accounts (yet).

(2) There is a preference related to what happens when you close the last tab. Maybe this will help for now.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

More info on about:config: Configuration Editor for Firefox. The moderators would like us to remind you that changes made through this back door aren't fully supported and aren't guaranteed to continue working in the future.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste LASTTAB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab preference to switch the value from true to false

I would like to see pinned tabs be collapsible. I choose to have a bunch of pinned tabs, and when my browser is half screen width, I can only see 2 tabs because of how much real estate my pinned tabs take up.

Yes, I don't think Firefox was designed with such heavy use of pinned tabs in mind. Here's a recent thread where they filled the entire bar, along with suggestions on how to get a list of tabs in that situation: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1376410

On the more general subject of suggesting changes to Firefox in future releases, Mozilla launched a new Ideas site over here:
