I would like to know if it is possible to load icons stored on my computer in the "new tab" homepage of firefox. This came out because when firefox starts, it takes massive time to load the icons on the homepage, thus I'm trying to load these icons from my local storage.
In the icon field, I tried to put
file:///home/user/.mozilla/home_icons/icon.(png|svg), but it says that it's not a valid URL. I created a vsftp server and again, in the field, I put
ftp://localhost/path/to/file/.mozilla/home_icons/icon.png without success.
I would like to know if the icon must be loaded from an HTTP protocol or if I have any different options to have my so desired icons...
here's an image of the dialog window and the error
PD: both of the links work when requested.
(I already read this question and the icon is the right size.)
