Hi guys,

Personally, I can't stand it. So I decided to do my best to revert to the Firefox 2.0 version. It's not quite possible, but you can get close by doing this:

1. Open a new page/tab and browse to about:config
2. browser.url.matchBehavior - Set this to 2
3. places.frecency.unvisitedBookmarkBonus - Set this to 0
4. places.frecency.unvisitedTypedBonus - Set this to 0

Also, add the Oldbar extension:

I heard auto:config can be adjusted to make your Firefox run faster, any tips on doing that? :)

Getting pickled with some FF3 behaviour so I actually went and read mozilla site :).

Wonder if this item "How to disable the smart location bar" is what you're looking for?

No, because if you read that link, it totally disables the auto-suggest. My suggestion makes the auto-suggest behave more like FF2.

My loads really fast with lesser resources used. BUT, it crashes really often. I wonder if it's one of my extensions...

If you're experiencing crashes, it's probably because of data corruption from a long time ago. You're better off saving what you can, such as bookmarks, and creating a new profile.

I did this way back at version 1.5 and I rarely have crashes and those are due to plug-ins.
