Autocomplete Manager provides advanced features for the address Autocomplete component in Firefox. The original Firefox address bar will try search from the history when we type. For example, when you type ‘tech’, it may shows a list of URL which start from ‘tech’. But, it can’t provide the URL that contains ‘tech’ in the middle of the string. With Autocomplete Manager extension, you can achieve this. Its latest version is compatible with Firefox 2, and has been tested on Windows XP and Vista, Linux (Fedora Core 4), and Mac OS X.
- matching against bookmark addresses
- matching against page titles and bookmark names

- completing the best match inline
- temporarily or permanently disabling the suggestion popup
- excluding local pages and pages containing search results
- swapping the address and title columns on the suggestion popup
- highlighting the column where a match was found
- fine-tuning the popup appearance by hiding page titles, changing the number of visible suggestions, and setting the truncation method for long addresses and page titles
If desired, one can always switch back to the default Autocomplete component at any time. The extension also includes numerous fixes for location bar and Autocomplete-related bugs, as well as a rudimentary history manager, which can be used to view, add, and delete individual history entries.
