I was wondering if there was an instant URL feature for Firefox like there is for Chrome, via regular settings or an add-on of some sort.

What I mean is, you type the beginning of a URL into the address bar and the browser goes to that website. For example, in Chrome, I would go to the address bar and just type in "tinychat" without pressing enter, and it would automatically go to "tinychat.com", and if I add more to it, like "tinychat.com/gee11" without pressing enter, it would go to that.

I guess what I'm asking for is a URL preview-like feature, I guess you could call it, since that's basically what it is.

If you type tinychat or others things max time it will either redirect to original site or go to google, so then you can easily go to first option you can also try This addon

That add-on merely fixes errors in URLs after you press enter. I'm asking for an auto-go feature, like I explained with Chrome, WITHOUT pressing enter.
