    This may or may not be useful to some folk, but if you're like me and use 'Clear Private Data (Ctrl+Shift+Delete)' quite alot, does it piss you off how when you click the drop-down address bar you still see loads of web sites? Well here's how to stop it.

    Here is how to turn off this fookin' annoying feature:
    1) Type “about:config” (without the quotation marks) into the location bar
    2) Click the “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button
    3) Filter “browser.urlbar.maxRichResults”
    4) Double click the row and reset the value to “0″

    Job done.

    Yeah it is always annoying when the Mrs goes on the machine and types it drops down to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] when she goes to type in the tescos address.

    This is why I used Chrome and the Mrs uses IE7. I don't think she even knows what Chrome is so never uses it

    you've just made my week mate. been looking for a faster way to do this for years

    of course in decent browsers you press ctrl+z for undo when you make a mistake like closing a tab, but I'm forced to use firefox because opera doesnt do a decent linux version and this is the one feature it's been lacking

    knowing this i think i might actually like firefox just a little bit... maybe

    Or you can click on "History" and then put your mouse icon over "Recently closed tabs" at the bottom and choose from there.

    I keep on trying out firefox but there is one thing that bugs me and that is that i can't get it to open a new tab if i click something in my favourites it just opens it in the same tab

    i know you can create a new tab and then open something in your favourites but i want it to open automatically like it does in maxthon

    anyone know how to do this

    I think Tab Mix Plus can do this, but could be wrong -
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Edit: Just tried it, and it does exactly what you want, open Options, then Events, and tick the Open Tabs From: Bookmarks/History.

    Cheers for that Mr. O. As much as I like much of FF, that was the thing that annoyed me. It seems everytime I started typing a url, it took over my PC like it was giving it a good defrag lol.

    If you're using Tab Mix Plus (sounds like a few are now) you can also use ctrl and F12.

    Dunno if it's the same if you aren't using Tab Mix Plus, I can't be bothered to disable it and restart FF.
