Access History, Bookmarks & Search Suggestions From Firefox Omnibar

Omnibar Plus, a Firefox add-on, adds extra functionality to the Firefox Omnibar by organizing links from history, bookmarks and search suggestions. Bookmarks & History links are grouped together, whereas Omnibar search suggestions can be found in a different group. Omnibar Plus also requires another add-on, Omnibar, as a prerequisite. You can also quickly search and switch between different search engines using the shortcut search operator. Hitting F6 focuses the location bar, and a middle click on the search engine opens its homepage. The drop down list is compact, and different styles can be applied to it. Settings and features can be changed from  Omnibar Plus options.

Once you’ve installed the add-on, you will be able to access links from your bookmarks, history and search suggestion through the Omnibar. The order of the links retrieved from bookmarks, history and suggestions can be changed. Furthermore, you can change the color scheme for the suggestion pop-up, and display the search engine in the URL bar.
