Tweak: Fx 3 Address Bar Part 2

Posted: Friday, January 23, 2009 by El Guru in Add-ons, Firefox, Fx 3.0, Fx 3.5, Tips & Tweaks

I’ve recently received a couple more tweaks for dealing with the Firefox 3 ‘Awesome Bar’. Note: Tweaks do not work with Firefox 3.1! These are more updates to a couple of the tweaks:

  • Number of Results – By default the Smart Location Bar will display a maximum of 10 or 12 results based on what is typed in the address bar. You can change this so NO RESULTS are displayed.

    • In a new tab and type about:config; (if needed click the “I’ll be careful, I promise” button)
    • In the filter field type browser.urlbar.maxRichResults
    • double-click on the entry and enter -1
    • click OK
    • close and restart Firefox
  • Remove Unvisited Bookmarks – Your displayed results will still include your bookmarks, but only those you have visited.For those who don’t want to mess with the about:config, you can install the add-on Hide Unvisited 3.

    Love it!!!
    If I want my history, I’ll go to my history.
    If I want my bookmarks, I’ll go to my bookmarks.
    All I need is the last few address I’ve put in and I’m happy. I don’t want to open a lot of information I don’t need then have to wade through it for what I want.

    If I had access to these tweaks, I would have gone to Firefox 3 from the release, rather than being dragged to it, only when support was no longer available for Firefox 2

    Great Job!!!
