Firefox 3 question

Anyone else find Firefox 3's address bar's "better" search functionality for browsing history pretty darn useless? I used to be able to type, say, "f" and get it to automatically have URLs that start with f listed there, either at the beginning of the domain, or after the www (so, http://freefall.purrsia.com/ would be easily accessible, for example).

Now, in Firefox 3, it searches the titles of old pages as well, and doesn't seem to have any good way of figuring out how to prioritize the results. So "f" pops up my livejournal because I have apparently entitled it "matters of the proverbial heart". Freefall doesn't appear until further down the list.

I wonder if I should file a bug report, or what.

in general, I'm of the opinion that firefox's dev team ought to also field "This is a Stupid Feature" reports.

FireFox is up to version 3? I missed that, but I think I'll wait to upgrade.

Definitely put in some sort of a report. User feedback is good.

Or someone will come up with an add-on to fix the issue.

How does "matters of the proverbial heart" alphabetize under "f"?

See, there's an "f" in the word "of".

I gather it's supposed to be an adaptive search response that filters things you go to more often to the top over time.

Has it been doing that for you?
