Enabling "Do not start a gesture when holding the Alt key" does not seem to help. And if it matters, I'm on linux (Elementary OS).

After little investigation I can confirm compatibility issue with FireGestures on Linux. I've no idea how to fix this, as from my side I can see only that FireGestures prevents context menu call, even when mouse gestures disabled in options completely. As there are no such problem on Windows, this should be probably fixed by FireGestures author, but look at workaround below.

And for some unknown reason, the "Add to Speed Start" option in context menu shows up now :)

This function isn't compatible with e10s yet, so m.b. it was a cause in your case.

I found Desktop (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/desktop/) to be very similar so I tried that too. Desktop throws the same error (can't right click) though I can "double-right-click" to call out the context menu on New Tab, while in Speed Start, "double-right-click" just shows grid lines.

Try SStart 2.0.8b3 with FireGestures@Linux context menu workaround (open on dblclick).

Is there any difference between Speed Start and Desktop other than they're maintained by different people? Anyway, thanks for quick reply and maintaining this add-on! :)

Speed Start was forked from Desktop about nine months ago because of some long time unresolved problems. The most critical is the "tiles stack" (I've made a screenshot 'cause Desktop author is regularly deletes such complains). Since then a lot of fixes and new features were implemented (internal cache, gestures, scaling, more customizations, backup/restore, restartless, etc). However, now there are no plans for new (especially complex) functions, because I use it everyday for myself and want to keep it simple and quick.

I'm just wondering if I'm missing something? I have set up Folders but once I enter a Folder I can't get back to the Main Page or swap to another Folder. Is this how it's meant to be?
Cheers,
Keith

I've since worked it out thanks but I think a button or even better a tree structure would be easier.

Hi, is it possible to have a non-static background? I mean, have it refreshed from the original file on "speed start" refresh, instead of having it cached (so that it is possible to change background just by changing that image)

Thanks :)

PS: really like it

nico202, unfortunately no, and it was intended by design.

I have a problem with Speed Start in SeaMonkey. It keeps forgetting that I want to load the Speed Start page when I open a tab. If I go to Addons Manager, disable Speed Start and enable it again, the problem is solved, but only for a while. Any suggestions for how to fix it?

It seems you have a conflict with another add-on which seize the new tab. Try to disable your extensions one by one to find the culprit.
