How to manage Firefox Smart Location Bar?
« on: December 23, 2009, 10:00:06 PM »
I like the Firefox Smart Location Bar, but I often want to tweak what shows up and what doesn't.  More specifically, sometimes you make a typo and now it's in the smart bar, but how do you remove it?  Also, let's say there's an entry in there that you want to tweak slightly?  Like, take this forum for example:  the first time I came here, I used the main page (www.donationcoder.com), but I prefer to come to the forum index.  How do I change it?  It would be nice if there's was a smart location bar "manager" out there, but i couldn't find one.

There is a bunch of extensions changing the smart location bar in every possible way, depending on what exactly you want...

Really?  I typed "smart bar" in the search at the addon website, and I didn't come up with anything.  I'll try again.

You might try "location bar" instead which is still valid for Firefox 3.  :)

in a rare sense of vanity, the location bar in Firefox 3 is called the 'awesomebar' so do a search on that as well.

Thanks!  Duh!

I don't know what the 'duh' is about.  One of the questions you asked is answered there.  As in, how to delete a typo entry.  I'm not one for duplicating stuff that's at the source.  You could read it.

I think just a recognition that the answer was obvious (to check the Mozilla site).

The only extension listed there is "Omnibar" AFAIK which is fine but not everything.  8)

I probably should have drilled down to the specific question that was answered and eliminated the ambiguity.

Nah, you did fine.  Andy was right, I was saying "duh" to myself.
