Exact URLs in the Firefox address bar!

I am so used to having to type exact URLs in the address bar that I hadn't noticed until now that in Firefox 3, you can enter keywords of previously visited website in the address bar and relevant URLs from the Firefox history are displayed. I used to search with Google when I didn't have the exact address, but it is now a much quicker way to find a URL that I know I have already visited. You just have to enter the keywords separated by a space.

Should one want to get rid of this annoyance then simply do the following.

1) Open the about:config editor.
2) Modify some entries.
3) Restart Firefox.
Or for the simple way:
1) Visit:

I like it as it has saved my butt a few times finding a page. Its not for everyone but it is not leaving anytime soon. Mod now or forever hold your peace.
