Get the Firefox 2 address bar in Firefox 3

If you miss the Firefox 2 address bar, you can still use Firefox 3 and feel that old familiar address bar feeling.

Don't love the new "awesome bar" in Firefox 3? It knows your history and your bookmarks and it's so pretty, but it's not for everyone. Here's a quick tip to get the old Firefox 2 address bar back in Firefox 3. You can see this tip in action at CNET TV.

Go to addons.mozilla.org and get the oldbar 1.2 add-on.

Add it to Firefox.

Close the browser and restart.

You should see the address bar you've come to know and love. And if you ever get the urge to live in the present again, just turn the add-on off and your "awesome bar" shall return.
