Location Bar Characters 0.2.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
by Paul Morris
Have trouble remembering the special characters that focus the location bar's results? When you want to search only in bookmarks, or history, or open tabs, etc.? With this add-on they are only a right-click away in a context menu. ( ^ * + % ~ # @ )
About this Add-on
While it is obviously quicker to just type them in, you may not remember all of them at first. This add-on helps you learn them by making it easy to use them. The more you use them the quicker you'll learn them. Just right-click on the location bar and there they are. Once you can easily remember them you won't need this add-on anymore.
These are the special characters:
Add ^ to search for matches in your browsing history.
Add * to search for matches in your bookmarks.
Add + to search for matches in pages you've tagged.
Add % to search for matches in your currently open tabs.
Add ~ to search for matches in pages you've typed.
Add # to search for matches in page titles.
Add @ to search for matches in web addresses (URLs).
They can be entered before or after search terms. Learn more about them here:
