Old Location Bar is a Firefox extension that makes Firefox 3's location bar "AwesomeBar" look and act more like Firefox 2's old location bar.
Here are some key features of "Old Location Bar":
· Only match's the URL, not the description. (Firefox 3.5 and up)
· URL Bar displays the old way.
· Doesn't look through your Bookmarks or History.
· Only matches what you type, doesn't guess.
· Most visited URL's are listed in descending order.
· URL Bar turns Yellow when visiting a "Secure" page.
· Go button always displays.
· RSS button no longer displays.
· Favorite button no longer displays.
· Mozilla Firefox
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Updated for Firefox 4.
· The core functionality is working better than ever! Firefox finally ignores "www." in results.
A few minor cosmetic options do not work in FF4, such as:
· Don't display security info
· Hide Favicon
· Always show Go arrow
· Hide drop down box arrow
· Location bar Yellow on secure pages
· Rounder corners (Firefox 4 already has corners that are very round)
· Remove Old Location Bar from "Tools" menu.
· I'll work on bringing as many of these minor cosmetic features to FF4 in the near future.
