One thing Firefox is missing

  1. Hey, i was using firefox and chrome before for a long time, but now i want to move completely to firefox. But one thing firefox is missing from chrome is when you write a fraction of the adress in the adress bar, you have to click down and then enter, to visit the website. Unlike in firefox, chrome automatically completes the adress of a website, so you don't have to click down and enter to visit the website. Is there any plug in for firefox to do exactly that? I was browsing internet but did not find anything like that...

    thanks in advance! :)

    Autofill Address in URL Bar

    Other than the smart location feature, you can also get your URL bar to autofill the address as you type the URL.

    Go to "About:Config"

    Config name: browser.urlbar.autofill
    Default: False
    Modified value: True (Have Firefox autofill the address as you type in the URL bar)
