I installed Firefox today but I can't find a way to autocomplete my bookmarks from the address bar. In IE my favorites are autocompleted or I just type them down and the browser will open it. Which saves me a lot of time. From what I understand, in Firefox I have to assign a keyword to each bookmark to make it work. Is that true? Is there a way I can do this automatically?

When you'd like a function in Firefox.... Nov 24, 2005

Just search for extensions!

When you click the "install" link, you'll get a blocker at the top of the screen. Unblock the website, then click on it again.

May I also recommend the "Add Bookmark Here" extension. Makes it much easier to manage your bookmarks.

Autocomplete name of the bookmarks Nov 24, 2005

Thank you Timoty and Toledo. I think I wasn't clear with what I wanted. I do have the AutoMarks extension installed but I was looking for a way to autocomplete the title of the bookmarks.

For example I have 7 o 8 links for financial glossaries so in IE I had to type 'financial glossary' and I would inmediately see 'financial glossary 1', 'financial glossary 2', etc. Regardless of the urls, which sometimes are impossible to remember.

I've also installed an extension called 'Enhanced Bookmark Search' which lets me open a web site by typing the name of the bookmark, but it doesn't have an autocomplete feature.

I've been looking around on the Mozilla web site and I think I will have to wait for a new extension.
