Search with the Firefox address bar
The address bar makes it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. Enter search terms, or a specific web address, to get search suggestions, your top sites, bookmarks, history and search engines — all within the same field.
You can also update Firefox or fix performance issues right from the search results. On occasion, you may see a tip from Firefox on how you can save time while searching.

Access top sites from the address bar
You can access your top sites when you click the address bar. “Top sites” are a combination of your most recently and frequently visited sites, as well as the sites you’ve pinned. If you’ve installed Firefox for the first time, it suggests top-ranked sites by default.
Tip: Clicking on a search top site like Google or Amazon will autofill the address bar with a shortcut (example: @amazon) so you can perform your search without having to load the search page. Just continue entering your terms to perform your search (Example: @amazon “adventure books”).
