awesome-bar-firefox-3

Gotten use to the AwesomeBar yet?  This is the new stylish name for the Firefox 3 address bar.  Any ol’ browser can have an “address bar” only one can be awesome though.  Here are a few tips and tweaks you can do to make your awesome bar even more awesome…er?

oldbar – Oldbar makes the location (URL) bar look like Firefox 2.  If you need another alternative to this, try out Old Location Bar.  Why two add-ons that do the same thing?  I don’t know either.

Hide Unvisited – You too can hide pages (bookmarks) that you haven’t visited (since deleting or clearing history) from showing in the AwesomeBar.

Enter Selects – This Extension allows you to press enter in the AwesomeBar to select the first result (without pressing down).

Hidden Places – Stop URLs from specified domains being added to places and the AwesomeBar.

Edit Middle – Show AwesomeBar results when editing in the middle (not just at the end).

For a bonus tip, be sure to head over to Mozilla Links.  Over there they have nine more configuration tweaks you can do to configure you AwesomeBar till you get it just the way you want it.
