Default Any way to restore Iceweasel 2 behavior in the Navigation bar?

Hello:

I mostly like Firefox/Iceweasel 3 but I hate what they've done to the
navigation bar. Clicking on the down-arrow at the right now brings up
unclassified bookmarks or something instead of recently visited sites.
(Is it an attempt to replicate some sort of IE behavior? I wouldn't
know, but if so, why???) Yes, I know there's another down-arrow on
the toolbar to bring up recent sites visited, but it's TAB-SPECIFIC.
And I use tabs a lot, tabs being one of the things which makes Firefox
terrific. I want to be able to click on that right down-arrow and get
the list of recently-visited sites (without regard to tab) I used to
get. Is there any way to do that, or did some geek or other decide to
change the user experience irrevocably for no good reason?

Patrick

Of course, it is. The damn win32 version even ships with a
look-i-am-the-same theme.

I believe, what you're looking for is hidden somewhere in about:config.
I can't say for sure, but you might search for 'history' or 'rating'
words there and try.


And the last is that it has History menu, that can be considered as a
workaround .

You do know there's a "most visited" smart bookmark, right? And that
the awesomebar tries to sort by relevance?

I've seen lots of people complain about the awesomebar in fx3, but they
usually do it immediately after noticing it without giving it a chance.

By relevance?? Of the 12 sites listed there right now, 10 are just
uncategorized bookmarks that I haven't visited in months at least.
The top two are AMONG the many more than 2 sites I've visited since
getting ff3 about 10 days ago. And the sites listed have little in
common, so relevance to what, I have to wonder.

I dislike it. No doubt I'll get used to it, probably by ignoring it.

Thanks for those links; it seems I'm not alone in despising th new
behavior! It appears that, in release 3.1, there will be an option,
browser.urlbar.restrict.history, which can be set to "" (i.e. nothing)
in about:config, which will cure the problem. In testing, we seem to
have 3.01, so I guess I'll have to wait a bit. Meanwhile, the "Hide
Unvisited" extension does part of the job.

I've always disabled the internal acroread plugin and let xpdf handle
pdf files for me. It's faster and doesn't subject my browser to any
bad pdf reader behavior. I also find that the reader plugin makes too
ineffective use of available screen space.
