The web developer tool in Firefox received good upgrades like quick access to tools and a command line tool for quick keyboard access. New CSS 3 and HTML 5 elements support has been added and the most notable thing here is compatibility with unprefixed css3 elements of transition, animation, transform and gradients which allows the developers to get rid of browser-specific prefix while coding making universality and reducing few lines of codes.

Support for MD5 in digital signatures is stripped off for good so don’t use it if you’ve been using.

How to Enable Autofill in Mozilla Firefox address bar like Google Chrome

Mozilla Firefox is a great browser to surf the web. There is auto-complete feature activated when we type any url(website name) in address bar which shows us a list of similar urls and we can select any of those suggested urls which match our website name. But there is autofill feature in Google Chrome browser in which when we type website name in address bar, it automatically fills the most probable website name matching what we are typing, if its suggestion is what we want to open, then we just need to press Enter button on our keyboard. So basically, Autofill feature in address bar is more time saving and convenient than autocomplete feature on private or personal use computers. But on public use computers, autocomplete is good choice.

In this post, we’ll activate the autofill in url in address bar in Mozilla Firefox as this option is built into firefox but it is hidden and disabled by default. To enable it, follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Launch Mozilla Firefox browser. Type about:config in address bar.
  • Click on “I’ll be careful, I promise” button.
  • In the filter box, type : browser.urlbar.autoFill
  • It will appear below. The default value is set to False. Double click on it.
  • Now the default value is set to True. That’s it. Now you can close that tab.

Now, to check it, just type a website name which you visit most frequently and you’ll see that the browser filled the matching name, just press enter to go to the website. If it is a wrong suggestion, keep on typing otherwise select from dropdown list if the right one appears.

If you don’t like autofill address bar feature, you can disable this anytime by following the steps mentioned above to set browser.urlbar.autofill to False.
