Firefox Inline Autocomplete

March 05, 2007

To turn on inline autocomplete in the Firefox web browser...

  1. Enter about:config in the URL field
  2. Right-click on the page and create a new Boolean value
  3. Enter browser.urlbar.autoFill as the preference name (note, case-sensitive: 'F', not 'f')
  4. Set the value to true

Why this isn't exposed in the preferences I'll never know.
