Only Filter through Bookmarks when typing in Address Bar?

Posted

I would like to reproduce the behavior that the Holmes extension on Chrome allows.

I would like to 1. Type "*" 2. Press space 3. Type the name of one my bookmarks 4. The bookmark should be the first option when I press Enter, not "Search with DuckDuckGo"

Is there a flag that can enable this?

As a workaround, I just tap "Tab" which goes to the second option, (the bookmark).
