How To Disable Firefox 3.0 Smart Location Bar

This post has been viewed 83812 times since Friday 20 June 2008 @ 1:24 pm

Entering the second day after Firefox 3.0 was released, mixed feedback was heard. Personally, I am satisfied with Firefox 3.0, except the Smart Location Bar, or so called Awesome Bar. I don’t like the autocomplete nature of this Smart Location Bar, as it lists out the possible bookmarked site or previously visited sites while I’m typing in the address. I know the purpose is to save my time and hassle to type the whole address but it’s annoying me more than helping because I need to choose from some irrelevant results listed. I guess some Firefox users who used Firefox 2.0 before the upgrade will feel the same too.

Disable Firefox 3.0 Smart Location Bar

If you are thinking of disabling this Smart Location Bar from automatically listing, do some tweaking to Firefox 3 then.

Note:

Please make sure you know what you are doing, when you are tweaking Firefox using about:config. Ok!

Follow the steps below will completely disable it :-

  • In the address field of Firefox 3.0, type about:config, then press Enter.
  • In the filter field, type browser.urlbar.
  • Click on the line with browser.urlbar.matchBehavior, change the value to 0 (zero).
  • Click on the line with browser.urlbar.maxRichResults, change the value to 0 (zero) also.
  • Now exit FireFox and open it again.

If you want it to behave like Firefox 2.0 then do the following :-

  • In the address field of Firefox 3.0, type about:config, then press Enter.
  • In the filter field, type browser.urlbar.
  • Double click on the line with browser.urlbar.matchOnlytyped, the value will automatically change to true.
  • Now exit FireFox and open it again.

Any feedback is welcome.
Enjoy using Firefox 3.0!
