I absolutely hate the "awesome bar", how can I get FF2 type URL-bar functionality back? I've resisted "upgrading" from Firefox 2 (the best product you ever made) until now, because (among many other reasons) the god-awful "Awesome bar" (who came up with that dog?).

I don't simply want to turn it off, I want Firefox 2 style url-bar functionality, I don't want that double level style of info, I don't want it trying to predict where I might want to go, I simply want to go to an address that I've been to previously, via the URL bar, whe I start typeing in the URL. That's always been the fastest and easiset way to navigate.
