Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My rating is more of a signature on an imaginary petition. I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one to hate this new Awful Bar, but not only that, even this algorithm is annoying. I'm going back to Firefox 2. :/

Honestly, the new bar is horrible. Thanks for the add-on!

simply fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank God I found this, the Awesome Bar made my eyes bleed. This looks exactly like the old Location Bar, but with the snazzy gold stars on the right for bookmarked URLs. Now _please_ implement functionality to restore an at least usable search algorithm..

feedback to FF devs. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

url match algorythm is all messed up. it uses the title of the webpage instead of the URL for matches. and it does matches inside the string, not starting with the begining as it should.

this leads to some nasty situations when i type gmail and it takes me everywere else.. but not gmail... sux. Remove this "feature" from FF3 and let the old bar alone.

honestly.. it is anoying enough to make me use opera or even IE..

this extension only solves the "look" of the problem, but not the way it works..

Have FF3 installed for 5 minutes and it's location bar is already driving me *insane*.

I completely agree with DesmondHume o!

Does its job Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice job on this extension.

Does exactly what it is designed to do.

Those complaining about it seem not to have read what this extension does nor conducted a search on how to disable the Awesome Bar.

I'm with Kmads and mauzer_tim - developers take note: dump the 'awesomely annoying' bar!

Good to get rid of that ugly thing. Sad that the search thing is still there :/

Thumbs up! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on! I just really hope that they make that bloated menu and that terrible terrible search-algorithm an option in the final version!


Hope developers of FF refuse from the UglyBar in the final version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've added the rate just to underline the fact that new address bar in FF3 is UGLY!

It creates an information overload of my sight - there are too many letters with different fonts, but really it's less informative than old-style bar.

And I don't know why but I... afraid of AwesomeBar (UglyBar?). I was shuddered when I firstly saw it.

Its a good idea, I'm not a fan of the new bar. Doesn't appear to work, though, on FF3b5 under OS X 10.4.

Thank GOD you made this ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I recently install firefox 3 and i found out the awesome-terrible new bar...

I cannot understand why the new firefox 3 location bar is called awesome...i would call it : "Hell"

Why ? That's why :

1)I don't want a bunch of addresses to come up everytime i try to type.
2)90% of what i m typing is not a bookmark ( if it was a bookmark why should i type it anyway ) 3)90% of what i m typing and it's not a past search.
4)For personal reasons i don't want to keep history and i don't want history to come up with a typing of a single letter.Respect my privacy !

I hope that firefox 3 developers will add an option of disabling this in the final version.
Until then i will return to firefox 2 and if the final version of 3 still has no option of removing it i ll use your extension.

Thank you for giving me hope !

Perfect !

This sucks. It only makes the location bar look like the good old, but it still works like the new bar. Might as well put a paper bag on my head.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Please, please, please can there be some way to make the URL bar behave precisely like the old one?\r\n\r\nI\'ve gotten so used to typing in the first few characters of a URL I use frequently and then pressing down and enter, that now I\'m getting to completely the wrong page. It\'s not the presentation of the results I object to, but the ordering of them.\r\n\r\nIf I type a URL starting \"th\" then I\'m going to get more frequently used URLs that happen to contain \"the\" in their description. Not good.\r\n\r\nI was going to switch to using Firefox 3 beta permanently so that I could get used to it and check that all the sites I use work, but until this ridiculous new \"feature\" can be disabled somehow then I\'m going back to Firefox 2. :-(

Fantastic add-on! "AwesomeBar" has to be the single worst feature I have ever seen on Firefox. And going out of their way to ensure that it can't be turned off? Real mature. Hopefully the FF2 algorithm will be included in future releases of oldbar (or even better, in FF3).

I can't stand the new adress bar. Now the simple, clean bar is back. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks a lot.
It works under beta5 and now, I can drop my Firefox 2.xx without regrets

Great! Suggestion tho... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm happy someone made this. The new address bar looked like it was made for half-blind people, and was useless for a long time web surfer such as myself.

One suggestion tho, that I hope your working on is: To make it Completely like the old one. It doesn't show the results in the same types of order as the old one. It doesn't start matching the first letter of the address from after the http://www.
