Awesome bar suggestion priority

Posted

Hi all,

Since the latest big update, one thing has been bothering me quite a lot. Previously, when typing part of a previously visited/bookmarked url on the location bar, Firefox would give autocompleting the URL a higher priority (higher on the drop down list) than, say, suggesting searches, which suited me perfectly. Now for some reason they have decided to switch things over, and now I have to scroll down the suggestions list to find the autocompleted URL. This is absolutely annoying. Why did they do that and most importantly, how can I change it back?

Thanks in advance!
