some bug with version 46

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First add-on I install, every time, all the time.

I liked Rated 4 out of 5 stars


Broken for the Firefox 43+ release Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this add-on; and despise the very large smartBar type results.

Be aware that for Firefox 43 and above this add-on is BROKEN in a fundamental way:
Start typing in the address bar to get to a previously visited addr|
Hit arrow-downkey to select the first address|
Hit Enter|

Tried on Mac/Windows can reproduce on both platforms.
Using 1.2.-signed version of Oldbar tested on Win/Mac FF 43.0+ up.

Fix for this:
browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete = false

В FF43 аддон сломался - при наборе адреса в адресной строке не переходит по нажатию Enter

Essential for keeping FF as simple as possible.

I withdraw my previous comment: when I removed McAfee SiteAdvisor to cure the nonfunctional back arrow problem, OldBar started working just the way it should.

Works fine except that in Firefox 4.0 RC 1 the switch to tab item are prefixed with moz-action:switchtab,

All works fine, except for the fact that I'm not allowed to open dropdown results in new tabs with mousewheel/center clicks.

Could you fix this, please?

Thanks for the 4.0 update ss.
I'd forgotten how hideous the default dropdown is.

This Extension has fewer places for conflict, compared to the Kakkoii Extension Old Location Bar, with certain Themes that alter the placement of the Bookmark This Page button in the URLbar. I therefore recommend this Extension for users of the SpewBoy Themes Strata40 and Stratum Fusion.

getting rid of green thing? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not a review, but I don't see where else to ask this.

I love this extension, but I am greedy and would like a way to get rid of the giant green thing in the urlbar that announces the conventional name of a site and takes up 1/3 of the space? I don't see a way to do this, is there? Thanks.

Oldbar works just fine, but after trying it out on one computer while I got used to regular FF3 on another, I decided to go ahead and use FF3 on both, but I can't seem to uninstall oldbar. Help?

easy to use and understand Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works precisely as described, easy to use.

The code is rather simple,

function oldbarStartup(event)
var urlbar = document.getElementById("urlbar");
urlbar.setAttribute("autocompletepopup", "PopupAutoComplete");
window.addEventListener("load", oldbarStartup, false);

Thanks. Keep up the good work.

@jennifer: If your still having this problem, can you email me so I can help you figure out what's going wrong.

@Tommy_B & Other people:

I've updated my add-on to work well with the newest version of Firefox.

It will do the same as oldbar, but also has many more options to refine. And the default settings it uses are pretty close to what Firefox 2 used to be.
Once V2.0 is approved you'll have the options menu and no more incompatible messages.

Lastly, I'd like to thank ssptizer for creating this add-on in the first place. Or else I would have probably not created my add-on. Your add-on sparked my interest in trying out XUL coding for Firefox add-ons.

I also cannot contact the author of this and I'm having problems. When I am running Adblock Plus, oldbar doesn't work. When I disable Adblock Plus, it still doesn't work. But when I uninstall Adblock Plus, Oldbar works fine. I also can't get Old Location Bar (the other program that mimics FF2) to work either, when Adblock Plus is running. So I have a choice; the annoying two-line address bar, or the annoying ads. What a horrid choice. this has only been a problem since roughly FFv3.5.2
