Hides and shows the bookmarks toolbar.
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox because of the following:
Seems to work know in Linux, but is incompatible with Locationbar². I know that AwesomeBar HD highlights the domain, but I also like the path-click function. I think that the protocol should not be hidden on https sites.
And the big drawback: customizing the search providers. I'm a big fan of Organize Search Engines as I have a lot of search engines. It would be great if AwesomeBar HD could be similar (or maybe even used the installed search engines)
I just recognized that I sometimes can't load a page by entering the address. I can't reproduce this bug yet, but it doesn't open the entered address when pressing enter. Keyword searches don't work, too.
And something for the feature wish list: suggestions. And not the suggestion of the default search engine (as it is in Chrome), but suggestions from the currently selected engine.
I can't use Firefox anymore after installing AwesomeBar.
There's a weird bug: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npjDFBcb7g4
The window keeps focusing and unfocusing. After opening a new tab, my CPU load rises to 100%. It drops only when closing the new tab. I can hardly type in the location bar.
Tested on Ubuntu Linux, clean profile.
Really great addon. There's only one thing I would like to see fixed:
I can't scroll horizontally with my mouse/touchpad. It keeps scrolling vertically. You can check the direction by comparing event.axis with event.VERTICAL_AXIS, see https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Gecko-Specific_DOM_Events#Determining_the_scroll_direction
Additionally, you could maybe add an option to invert scrolling direction when pressing shift.
