How do I get firefox to show recent sites in new tabs in the new releases of firefox? I really like this feature. I downgraded my firefox so I could get this screenshot. I really want this feature in the new versions of firefox.

This extension may let you get something similar to the old way https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... tab-tools/

You can increase the number of Top Sites rows and remove the tiles you don't care about (hover until the 3-bullet button appears, use that to unpin or dismiss). After that, it should be similar to the old display, just at a much smaller scale.

Is there a way to do it on a large scale?

Define "large scale".

You can use custom style rules in a userContent.css file to enlarge the tiles if you like. I have these old rules myself for some reason (experimenting?). I don't actually use the tiles much so this isn't optimized by any means:

Code: Select all
/* Tweaks for "Top Stories" on New Tab Page and Home Page */
@-moz-document url("about:newtab"), url("about:home") {
  /* Define dimensions used in the rule */
  :root {
    --tilewidth: 275px;
    --tileheight: 180px;
  }
  /* Set tile and thumbnail size (too large?) */
  div.tile, div.tile div.screenshot {
    width: var(--tilewidth) !important;
    height: var(--tileheight) !important;
  }
  /* Increase width of title below thumbnail */
  .top-site-outer .title {
    width: var(--tilewidth) !important;
  }
  /* Reduce wasted space between tiles */
  .top-site-outer {
    padding: 0 4px !important;
  }
  /* Fix tile context menu button position */
  .top-site-outer .context-menu-button {
    offset-inline-end: -5px !important;
  }
  /* Reduce the site icon offset */
  .top-site-icon.default-icon {
    bottom: -1px !important;
    offset-inline-end: -1px !important;
  }
  /* Minimize left and right blank areas */
  main {
    width: 100% !important;
  }
  /* Adjust context menu position */
  .top-sites .context-menu {
    right: 0 !important;
    offset-inline-start: unset !important;
  }
  /* Full URL tooltip on hover */
  .top-site-inner a[href]:hover::after {
    content: attr(href);
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: var(--tilewidth);
    color: blue;
    background-color: #ffa;
    font-size: 15px;
    padding: 0 6px 3px;
    border-radius: 6px;
  }
}
