The starred link thing that pops up when I start to type a address is really annoying me for some reason, anybody know how to remove it? Its like its listing random crap, I only go to 5 of the links on a regular bases.

it irritated me at first, but after a while i've learned to ignore it. and when im typing in sites i frequent, it makes it easier to select them from the drop-down box.

Here you go Taco

Open a new tab and type:

about:config

go to:

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults

set the value to -1

go to:

browser.urlbar.matchonlytyped

Click it to set the value to FALSE


Restart Firefox

Enjoy
