Typing in the address bar sucks by hulver (4.00 / 1) #1 Wed Jun 18, 2008 at 12:24:03 PM EST
They always have to spoil something don't they.

I've found changing one of the about:config options (browser:urlbar:level or something similar) to 2 to make it work more how I like.

browser.urlbar.matchBehaviour?  Default is currently 1.

browser.urlbar.matchOnlyTyped set to true and it doesn't scan your bookmarks - more like FF2.

Still haven't managed to get it to have the drop down as just the URL though; it keeps putting the page title in the list too.

There used to be an about:config option that sadly was removed.

thought the "awesome bar" was fucking shite (the about:config things didn't help), and re-installed 2.0.0.14 after about 10 minutes. WHY DO THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO MUCK ABOUT

"Awesome bar"? by Breaker (4.00 / 1) #13 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 01:40:08 AM EST
No.  A more accurate description was already taken though.

...but I have had a "You know what? This browser is slow and has leaked all my memory" moment frequently.

It's not that radically different, and Hulver indicates I can get the address bar working in the "old fashioned way", so I'll be happy when i can do that.

Please post that by Phage (2.00 / 0) #7 Wed Jun 18, 2008 at 10:26:55 PM EST
When you figure it out. I have the same issue.
It does seem much faster though.

See Hulvers first post by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #8 Wed Jun 18, 2008 at 11:50:46 PM EST
Also items with * alongside them seem to be old style URLs

Opera have brought a new one too by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #9 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 12:00:34 AM EST
It sucks at a very particular thing I do in flickr that it used to be very good at.

Can you downgrade back?

fuck, that was ugly by herbert (4.00 / 1) #15 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 02:50:44 AM EST
I nearly had to kill you for making me install that, until I found out there is an Opera Classic skin.

It's generally a pretty crap browser by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #17 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 04:08:47 AM EST
Ugly, clunky and a bit stupid. However it manges torrents well, and does that flickr thing I was on about. I use both Opera and Firefox.

Address bar by Breaker (4.00 / 1) #10 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 01:12:36 AM EST
Yeah, I agree with you there.  FAIL.


I must be the only guy on this site by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #14 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 02:13:06 AM EST
who likes the address bar.

I've been running the Betas, then the RC's, for a while. I like FF3.

I'm royally pissed about one thing. by ObviousTroll (4.00 / 1) #18 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 04:49:30 AM EST
You can't have FF3 and FF2 on the same box.

I bounce back and forth between as many different browsers as I can manage, trying to make sure my sites work correctly. I don't see why I can't have them both installed into different windows directories.

Has anybody seen my clue? I know I had it when I came in here.

how bout on a USB drive? by garlic (2.00 / 0) #19 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 10:17:47 AM EST

Maybe. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #21 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 12:16:50 PM EST
I actually installed FF3 in a custom directory to get it to try and leave FF2 behind. The result was a mess - if I manually run the FF2 executable, it still somehow launches FF3. I have to assume there's some sort of registry mangling or DLL hell involved.

let me see by garlic (2.00 / 0) #22 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 02:01:50 PM EST
I have firefox on my USB drive. it says it's 'firefoxportable'. That's probably how it gets around registry crap. Appears to be available in 3.

I like it. by CountSpatula (2.00 / 0) #23 Thu Jun 19, 2008 at 07:49:47 PM EST
The most important thing, in my humble opinion, is that it's stable, works well, and displays my porn in a most delectable manner.

The URL prediction thing is a little annoying, but not to the point that I'd whine about it.  After all, I have most of the places I visit in bookmarks anyway.  And if it has some suggestions, hell, I'll maybe give it a shot.

I still just use Konqueror by Phil Urich (2.00 / 0) #24 Sat Jun 21, 2008 at 02:44:08 AM EST
It has issues too, sure, but somehow it just seems to do things a little bit more elegantly here and there.  Whenever I have to use Firefox for more than brief periods of time I get reminded of all the little things I had forgotten drove me crazy about it.

Of course, compared to some of the other alternatives . . .
