I dont know if there is anything that can be done about this but in the drop down url bar, my bookmarks are all listed there along with every page I visit.

It used to be the case that only the urls that I actually typed in would be visable.

Is it possible to remove the bookmarks from the drop down menu and only list the urls that I actually type in rather than the urls of every page I visit?

Like a lot of other people I did not like the new Awesome bar (Aweful bar??) and found the Oldbar addon referred to above. It was good to get back to the old style address bar but I notice it is no longer coloured yellow when visiting secure websites. The padlock still shows but I found the yellow a useful addition. Anyone know how to get that back as well?

Apart from that FF3 seems to be a big improvement, particularly the speed of page render.
