The autocomplete feature is a very useful and efficient tool to use when browsing the web. As you type in the first few letters of a web address, Firefox will suggest one web address that matches. You can type in additional letters until you see the web address you want and press Enterto go there. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to set Firefox to fill in automatically while you’re typing a web address.

  • Open Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser.
  • In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. This will redirect you to a warning page that says This might void your warranty!
  • Click the button that says I’ll be careful, I promise! to continue to the about:config page.
  • Type the preference name, browser.urlbar.autoFill in the Search field located at the top of the page.
  • Change the value of this preference to true. To do this, simply double-click where you see the preference name browser.urlbar.autoFill. To turn off, double-click the preference name to change its value to false.
  • Close the browser.
  • Reopen Firefox and type in a web address to try out. Once you see the address you’re looking for, stop typing and press Enter. This saves time and works great!




Mozilla Firefox provides useful, customizable toolbars that provide easy access to common features and sites. In this tutorial we’ll show you how toolbars can be displayed or hidden depending on your preferences.

  1. Open the Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser. On the top, you’ll notice a menu bar that says File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help. Next to that is an empty section known as the Tab Strip.
  2. Right-click the Tab Strip. The menu will display various toolbars with or without check marks next to them:
  • Menu Bar – This is your most basic Firefox toolbar that displays the browser menus File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. If you choose to keep the menu bar hidden, you can always temporarily show it by pressing the Alt key.
  • Tab Strip – This is the section where your web page tabs are displayed. You cannot remove the tab strip, but you can rearrange it to be above or below the Navigation Toolbar. To do this, right-click the tab strip and check/uncheck Tabs on Top.
  • Navigation Toolbar – This is your web address toolbar. It contains your web site navigation buttons, the location bar, the search bar, the home button and the bookmarks button.
  • Bookmarks Toolbar – Contains your bookmarks and bookmark folders.
  • Add-on Toolbar – this toolbar is associated with your Firefox extensions and is located at the bottom of the Firefox window.
