Fix for location bar issue (old bar extension) in Firefox 43+

No Comments

While setting up my new system (Linux Mint 17.3 XFCE / Mintbuntu), I discovered this nasty bug with the Old Location Bar extension, which had "moz-action:" and some JS garbage always appearing in the search dropdown, whenever I was typing something into the location / address bar.

Found a quick in the review section of the oldbar extension. Works both with oldbar and Old Location Bar extension. Should work with others as well (test yourself though) ;)

  1. Open about:config
  2. Search for browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete
  3. Set it to FALSE (double click normally does the trick)
  4. and tadaa: nasty is gone! ;)
