Mozilla has removed FVD Speed Dial extension from AMO for violating add-ons policies. If you’re using the extension, it may have already been disabled for you and is no longer available to download for Firefox for now.
Mozilla posted an official response on Discourse:
The company goes on to say FVD Speed Dial developer violated the AMO rules in 2020 for the aforementioned reason. When Mozilla warned such data collection was not allowed, the developer disabled the feature, and AMO continue to host the extension.
Recently, Mozilla learned the developer re-enabled the shady behavior, this time with repeated offenses, the company completely blocked the Speed Dial add-on.
