Remove Domain Highlighting

A new feature in Firefox 6 is domain highlighting which is another feature that is already in place with Chrome and IE. This features makes the main domain standout in the address bar. You will notice in the example below, the is black whilst the http:// and blog. sub domain are in grey.

For those would prefer the entire address to be one color, there is an about:config tweak that will disable this feature.

  1. In a new tab paste & go about:config into the address bar
  2. If needed…Click the I’ll be careful, I promised button.
  3. Filter for browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled
  4. Double-click to change the value to False
  5. Close the tab. Changes take effect immediately.
