    Live Search For Firefox

    I have recently returned to Firefox from a long time using Chrome and must say really liking Firefox in its current state.

    However one thing I miss from Chrome is the live search, where you are typing something in the address bar and suggestions come up. Does anyone know how to turn it on in Firefox or if it doesnt exist any addons for it?

    May sound silly but searching for that on Google brings up lots of misleading entries.

    Re: Live Search For Firefox

    Live search is in the top right box. The URL bar does auto-complete instead. You can tweak the address bar behaviour with these options; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...eb-address-bar but for live search I only know of using the search box.

    Apparently the address bar is getting a chrome style makeover come october; http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/0...-a-quick-peek/

    Re: Live Search For Firefox

    Thanks for the info, I find it quite a lot easier to do it all in the one box then messing around with two as I always forget to use the other search box for some reason.

    I already knew of the search in the address bar, its how I came to realise that live searching was gone lol.

    A bit of a shame as its the only thing that lets Firefox down for me currently. Thanks again mate
