Address bar autocomplete suggestions in Firefox

The Firefox address bar displays the URL (web address) for the page that you are visiting. When you type into this field to enter a URL or search term, Firefox remembers the pages that you have visited and shows page suggestions in the address bar drop-down, such as sites you've bookmarked, tagged, visited before, or have open in tabs. This article explains how the address bar autocomplete feature works.

Note: To learn more about searching from the address bar, see these articles:

Just start typing in the address bar. Suggestions from your browsing history, bookmarks, and tabs will be listed, underneath what you've typed.

Note: If you click on the address bar without typing into it, a drop-down of your Top SitesShortcuts (most visited sites) will be displayed instead.

Fx82AddressBarAutocompleteDropdown

The autocomplete drop-down when you type into the address bar will include:

  • Page titles and web addresses from your history.
  • Page titles, web addresses and tags from your bookmarks.
  • Pages you currently have open in other tabs (see below under Switch to tab).
  • Sync'ed tabs from other devices.
  • Search terms from your Search history (if search suggestions are enabled).

Icons will indicate whether a matching result is an open tab or a bookmark. When you see the page you want, just click on it or use the up and down arrows on your keyboard to highlight it and then press EnterReturn.

Firefox will also suggest popular search suggestions from the default search engine. See Search suggestions in Firefox for more information.

The address bar suggestions adjust based on your browsing behavior, such as how frequently and recently you visited a web page and what result you chose based on what was typed. This way pages you visit all the time will show up at the top of the list, often after typing only one character.

URL autocomplete

In addition to the autocomplete drop-down list, Firefox will also complete the URL in the address bar. For example, if you type "suppo", Firefox may fill in "rt.mozilla.org/" to complete the address "support.mozilla.org" if you've visited that site before. Pressing EnterReturn in this case would take you directly to that address.

URLAutocomplete75

Switch to tab

The address bar also searches through your open tabs, displaying results with a tab icon and the text "Switch to tab". Selecting these results will switch you to the already open tab instead of creating a duplicate.

SwitchToTab75

To turn off the "Switch to tab" option temporarily, press the ALT key while clicking on the page in the autocomplete list that appears below your address bar. This will open your page in a new tab instead of switching to an existing one.

What can I do to get the best results?

  • When you want to go to a web page you've visited before, type a few letters from its web address or page title. Scroll through the autocomplete entries and find the page in the list (type in another letter if you don't see it listed). Press EnterReturn to go to the selected web address. Firefox will give this entry/result combination higher weight in the future.
  • Do not clear the browsing history - usually the richest source of autocomplete entries is from the title/web address combination. Clearing browsing history will remove these entries from the results.
  • Bookmark and tag frequently used pages. The address bar will match on the name you give the bookmark and also tags associated with the bookmark. See the Bookmarks in Firefox article for more information on how to use bookmarks in Firefox. You can improve your autocomplete results by tagging pages with easily-typed tag names.

Changing your address bar settings

To turn off the address bar autocomplete feature or restrict it to exclude certain results:

  1. In the Menu bar at the top of the screen, click and select .Click the menu button Fx57Menu and select .Click the menu button Fx89menuButton and select .

  2. Select the panel.
  3. Under the Address Bar section, select or deselect any of the following:

    Note: Some users may see an Address Bar — Firefox Suggest section instead, with additional settings for contextual suggestions. To learn more, see Navigate the Web faster with Firefox Suggest.

    Fx78AddressBarSettingsFx89AddressBarSettings
  • Browsing history: suggests pages that you've previously visited.
  • Bookmarks: suggests pages that you've bookmarked.
  • Open tabs: suggests pages that you have open in another tab.
  • Top sites: suggests your top sites (if enabled in the panel) when you click in the address bar.
  • Browsing history: suggests pages that you've previously visited.
  • Bookmarks: suggests pages that you've bookmarked.
  • Open tabs: suggests pages that you have open in another tab.
  • Shortcuts: suggests your most visited sites (if enabled in the panel) when you click in the address bar.
  • Search engines: suggests searching with your search engines.

Change preferences for search engine suggestions: To enable or disable search engine suggestions, including suggestions from your Search history, click this link to be taken to the Search settings panel. See Change your default search settings in Firefox to learn more about changing these settings.

Removing autocomplete results

If you want to remove an entry from the autocomplete list:

  1. In the address bar, use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight the entry.
  2. Press Shift+Delete to remove the item from the list.

If you want to remove all the history results from the autocomplete list, clear Firefox's browsing history.

Note: Autocomplete items from bookmarks will not be removed from the results if you attempt to delete them or clear the browsing history. These items have a star. To remove these items, delete the associated bookmark, or exclude bookmarks in the address bar settings.

Changing results on the fly

By default, when you type search terms in the address bar, the list under it shows search suggestions from the default search engine, and pages (bookmarks, history, open tabs) where every search term is part of the title, part of a tag, or part of the web address (URL).

If you are looking for a specific type of result, like a bookmark or open tab, you can speed up the process of finding it by typing in special characters in the address bar separated by spaces:

  • Add ^ to show only matches in your browsing history.
  • Add * to show only matches in your bookmarks.
  • Add + to show only matches in bookmarks you've tagged.
  • Add % to show only matches in your currently open tabs.
  • Add # to show only matches where every search term is part of the title or part of a tag.
  • Add $ to show only matches where every search term is part of the web address (URL). The text "https://" or "http://" in the URL is ignored but not "file:///".
  • Add ? to show only search suggestions.

For example, if you're looking for a page you bookmarked called Mozilla Firefox Support, you might type mozilla. The autocomplete results appear, but might not show the page you want.

You can narrow your results down to bookmarks only by making your search string mozilla * or * mozilla.

Extension provides some additional functionality compared to the default bookmark manager.

NOTICE: Extension doesn't work with a Firefox's tags. It only handles tags that are part of the title ("#<tag>").

This extension allows you to do following things:

* add tags for any bookmark
* search bookmarks by tag, folder or title/url words
* bulk bookmark operations (open bookmarks, move them to folder, add or remove tag)
* find potential duplicate bookmarks
* show all used tags

Unlike many other extensions, this one uses default browser's bookmarks storage and handles tags as part of a title.
So it is possible to add some tags when creating new bookmark by just writing several #tags to its title.

cor-el said

The way to remove tags is to open the Tags folder in the left pane in the Library and then select a Tag listed in this folder. If there are bookmarks that use this tag then they will be shown. Removing all bookmarks that show in a specific Tag folder should remove this tag since it is no longer being used. If that isn't working then there might be a problem with places.sqlite. If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting. You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

Thanks for the reply.

Just for clarity; Some tags do NOT have any bookmarks but they are still there and that's the crux of the problem. And manually removing the tag doesn't work either i.e. I right-click and Delete the tag but it's still there. Restarted the browser, it's still there.

Okay, so I clicked the the Verify Integrity button the first time and I don't think any errors was found but I restarted FF and after that, I found that some of the empty tags were removed!

So, it worked partially but a few are still there (as per the screenshots). I ran the Verify Integrity button the second time but that doesn't seem to do the trick again.

So I guess I need to backup and have FF rebuild places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files as the next step, right?

Still Using Folders to Organize Firefox Bookmarks? Try Tags

The ability to use tags to easily search your bookmarks in Firefox has been available for a couple of years, though many people still do not take advantage of the feature. Tagging your bookmarks not only makes searching faster, but there are additional benefits to using them.

Here are a few of great reasons to try tagging your bookmarks, along with how to set bookmark tags up and helpful tips for using them.

Three Reasons to Use Bookmark Tags

You may already have found a creative way to organize your bookmarks, making them easy to find when you need them. However, there are still a few reasons why using tags can be not only handier and simpler, but will also let you find your bookmarks faster.

1. Quick Searching

By far, one of the most useful features of Firefox's bookmark tags is that you can get to your saved pages faster. Any bookmark that you have tagged can be accessed by just typing the tag into the location bar.

Just type in your tag, or combination of tags, and the attached bookmarks will appear in the drop-down. This is the quickest way to get to the pages you saved for work, shopping, finance, or whatever. Plus, you can make this search work even faster.

If you do not want or need your history or open tabs to show up in the drop-down menu, you can adjust the Privacy setting to only show bookmarks. Just go to your menu and click ToolsOptionsPrivacy. Then deselect those options under Location Bar.

2. Bulk Deleting

If you use folders to organize your bookmarks, then the same goes for easy deletion of pages. You can select a folder and delete it along with its contents. Bookmark tags work almost the same way, allowing you to get rid of a bunch of bookmarks at one time.

Just go to the tag in your Library to see all attached bookmarks. Select them all and hit the Delete key or right-click and select Delete. Keep in mind that deleting a tag will not eliminate the bookmarks, it will only remove the tag.

3. Clutter Removing

While many are used to organizing their bookmarks with folders and toolbars, there are others who do not like either method. If you do not want to have pull-out menu after pull-out menu with folders and subfolders full of pages, then tags are for you.

And, if you want your Firefox window to be free of toolbars containing folders and bookmarks, then tags are for you too. You can eliminate the clutter in your window and not even bother with using your menu to access your bookmarks if you use tags.

Adding Tags to New Bookmarks

For those who have never used the tagging feature in Firefox, this simple step when saving a bookmark will help you down the road. When saving a page by selecting Bookmarks and then Bookmark This Page from your menu options, you will see the Tags field in the pop-up box.

If you use the star icon in your toolbar to bookmark a page instead, just double-click it and the pop-up with the Tags option will display.

Then you can add one or more tags, separated by commas. As soon as a tag has been added, it will then display in a drop-down list in that pop-up so that you can reuse it with a click. You can choose to use just one tag or a combination, which is handy for bookmarks that fall into more than one category.

Adding Tags to Existing Bookmarks

Now that you know how to tag your new bookmarks, you can also go back and update your existing ones. While this can be a tedious task, depending on the number of bookmarks you have, it is certainly an option that will help you search for them later.

If you happen to be visiting one of your saved pages, you can access the pop-up as described above and just add your tag. You can also open your Library of bookmarks and take care of business there and in bulk. It's easy to select more than one bookmark at a time and apply the appropriate tag or tags quickly.

While in your Library, you will also see a list of your tags and can copy, delete, or edit their names. By clicking each one, you can quickly view all bookmarks that use that tag. If a bookmark contains a combination, you will see it listed under both tags.

Four Tips for Using Tags

1. Check Your Tags

It is best to check through your list of existing tags, when bookmarking a page, before creating a new one. The point is to keep things clutter-free and easily searchable. If you create a new one called "pet" while you have an existing tag called "pets," your tags will get out of control quickly.

2. Let It Become Habit

If you already search for a location or folder when saving a bookmark, then adding a tag will soon become habit just like that did.

3. Use the Search Feature

Again, the biggest advantage to using Firefox's bookmark tags is to make your searching easier. Popping that tag into the location bar is by far, the quickest way to find what you are looking for, so use it.

4. Use a Tool for Tag Combinations

If you are caught between searching for tag combinations and liking a convenient button, then Bookmarks X Tags [No Longer Available], also called Bookmarks Tags Mix, is the add-on you need. This is the perfect tool for those who search tag combinations regularly. It allows you to configure one button for your toolbar that contains any number of tag combinations that you search often.

For example, instead of hopping up to the location bar and typing "travel, hotels, resorts, Hawaii, kids" to get all bookmarks for family-friendly hotels and resorts in Hawaii that you saved, you just click a button in your toolbar.

If you are only typing one tag into the location bar, then this add-on is not really necessary. It is mostly for those who use tag combinations often or when you need a specific set of bookmarks with multiple tags for a short time.

Are You a Die-Hard Tag User or New to This Method?

There is nothing wrong with organizing your bookmarks by category and using folders; it's normally the preferred method. But, maybe that is because it is the obvious one. The biggest advantage to using Firefox bookmark tags is the ease of searching when you need a page you saved.

Are you a bookmark tag user that wouldn't have it any other way? Or, would you prefer to stay away from tags and stick with your folders?Share your thoughts below – tags versus folders – what do you choose and why?
