ff3's sucky awesome bar

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but personally I HATE Firefox 3's so-called "awesome bar". It's totally not awesome. :/

Therefore I thought I'd share what I did to make the URL bar more like it was in Firefox 2.

1. First I installed oldbar.
2. Then I typed in about:config in the address bar, and "urlbar" in the filter.
3. I set browser.urlbar.matchOnlyTyped to true so it does NOT display things from my bookmarks or my history, and browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to 20 just 'cause I only want 20 urls showing in the address bar.
The end.

Thoughts, suggestions, & opinions welcome.
