Harnessing smart address bar:
The address bar of Firefox 3.6 is very practical when it begins to enter a keyword, it displays a list of hits corresponding directly drawn from your list of bookmarks, which include the word or words before or in the URL, either in their title page, either in their labels. In addition, this research also explores the history of sites visited (and thus the search words you type in URLs and titles of pages already visited).
The order of occurrence follows the frequency of visits: the most visited sites appear at the top. By default, the list of hits returned by the smart bar is limited to 12 results. You can extend it beyond this limit. To do so :
- Type about: config in the address bar and press Enter.
- Click I promise, I'll be careful!.
- In the Filter field, enter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults.
- Double click on the option that appears. Then enter the desired value, eg 20 to display 20 results. Click OK.
- Close and restart Firefox. Note that the menu selection of hits is limited to 6 lines, which requires scrolling through the list of results by using the elevator.
