Firefox 7 tip

Firefox 7 has been released, and it’s fast, uses a lot less memory, and it’s totally awesome. If you haven’t yet, I strongly suggest you upgrade. However, I found only one thing I don’t like. They removed the “http://” prefix in the URL bar! I don’t know about you, but that annoys me. So here is a customization tip to “fix” the URL bar:

  1. Type “about:config” in the URL bar, and press ENTER
  2. Tell Firefox you’ll be careful
  3. Search for “browser.urlbar.trimURLs”
  4. Double-click it’s value to set it to false
  5. You’re done!

Now the only thing I don’t like about Firefox is the new version numbering system.
