Remove Firefox 2 Go and Search Buttons

Need a quick and almost painless way of getting rid of those pointless “go” and “search” icons in the Firefox 2 interface? While doing a little customization on my own install, I ran across this tutorial via the Firefox Extension Guru’s Blog.

With the new default theme for Firefox 2 there is not a ’simple’ way to remove the ‘Go’ Button from the navigation toolbar. I never used the go button since I simply press enter after I type in address. This will make your address box a little bigger as well. There a couple ways you can remove the Go Button either via about:config or modifying your userChrome.css file.

Quick. Easy. Painless.

Remove Firefox 2 Go Button

There is nothing wrong with the Go button and there is nothing wrong with those who like it. Hey, if I had a reason to use it – I would. Thankfully though, I have an enter key, which in turn does pretty much the same thing. Banish the Go button from your installation of Firefox 2!

What do you need to do? Well just type “about:config” and scroll down till you see this:

browser.urlbar.hideGoButton

Then change it from false to true. That’s right, get Firefox your way with just a few clicks.
