Old Location Bar Version History

11 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 2.2.1-signed.1-signed.1-signed 50.8 KiB Works with Firefox 35.0a1 - 56.*

-Added URL Bar Font Size setting.
-Added URL Bar Font Color setting.
-Reworked the add-on code to use the better .JAR-free design methodology.

Version 40.3 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0a1 - 40.0

Updated the "List only Typed and Pasted" feature for the change in Firefox 36 which made "browser.urlbar.default.behavior" obsolete.
It now uses "browser.urlbar.suggest.history.onlyTyped" to achieve the same result.

Also updated the CSS code used for forcing the GO arrow to always display, in newer versions of Firefox.

Version 40.5 KiB Works with Firefox 4.0 - 35.*

Updated to fix compatibility issues with newer versions of Firefox.
Thanks to Deviantart user "roytam1" for fixing this, as I hadn't been able to get around to it!

Version 41.3 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 11.*

Updated for Firefox 4.

The core functionality is working better than ever! Firefox finally ignores "www." in results.

A few minor cosmetic options do not work in FF4, such as:
-Don't display security info
-Hide Favicon
-Always show Go arrow
-Hide drop down box arrow
-Location bar Yellow on secure pages
-Rounder corners (Firefox 4 already has corners that are very round)
-Remove Old Location Bar from "Tools" menu.

I'll work on bringing as many of these minor cosmetic features to FF4 in the near future.

Version 2.1.2 37.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a5pre

New Features/Options:
-New accurate translation of German localization thanks to "Endor".
-Hide Drop Down arrow.
-Hide Security information that shows up in the Favicon box on the left.

-Remove Old Location Bar option from the Tools menu.

Bugs Fixed:

Also created some more visual aids in the Style options to help users see what option does what.

Enjoy! :)

Version 2.1.1 30.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

-Fixed Options Menu Entity errors for other languages

-Added German & Russian localization also.

Version 2.0 37.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

Re-made the add-on from the ground up so it could utilize an options menu.
Most changes made by the add-on are now controllable by the user through the new options menu.
A link to the options is also added in the Tools menu of your Firefox browser.

This add-on no longer needs code for editing in the middle or hiding unvisited pages, due to the updates in Firefox 3.5 and up. Thus users who are still using below version 3.5 of Firefox may experience slightly reduced functionality of this add-on.

A lot of code has been removed and streamlined, lowering the memory impact drastically. All errors have been fixed. And it is now 100% security approved by the Mozilla security checker.

Version 1.8 16.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

Made a minor change to match only the URL, and of only URL's that have been typed. This change will only be visible in Firefox 3.5 and up.

Also turned on AutoFill, for more efficient use.

Version 1.7 16.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.5.*

For Firefox versions 3.5 and up, the URL bar will now match ONLY the URL, and starting at the beginning of it.
