I think I changed a pref or something, but my 'awesome bar' is not so awesome, it doesn't remember anything and I have to type every URL in manually. Please help save my sore hands and wrists from this needless work.

Valgt løsning

Make sure that the Location Bar is not set to "Nothing": Tools > Options > Privacy > Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest: History, Bookmarks, History and Bookmarks
See Smart Location Bar

This can also be a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.

Thank you so much! I had already checked the preference menu for privacy, but that link you included tipped me off to something that worked: I backed up my bookmarks and deleted the "places.sqlite" and "places.sqlite-journal" files, quit firefox, and when I rebooted auto-complete was back in business. My arms and hands thank you!

I never, ever had an address or location or awesome bar since downloading Firefox. It don't matter whatcha call it, I ain't got it. Any help would be appreciated, however. Thanks, kimberly
