(There's probably a better title for this) -What's going on -How to enable or disable -How to change engines
I made up: http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Location+bar+search Is something like that what we need here? I'd also like to include a link to an article about doing a quick search, but I'll save that for another day.

Hehe. "mozilla firefox" does not result in www.mozilla.com. :-)
Ha, darn. I was just guessing; I have OpenDNS on my router in my apartment, which responds for any query... Feel free to substitute something that is actually true.
- Remember to set the language. - "Bar" should not be capitalized. - I'd say this deserves a table of contents. - Use a working example for google's browse by name. :-) - Mention that name without a clear match will result in a google search, and you will be taken to the search results page. - I assume there's going to be confusion between this and smart keywords <http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Smart+keywords>. We should probably mention that turning off keyword.enabled does not affect smart keywords. - Specify that a value of false disables the feature. (In other words, tell users how to interpret what they are seeing.) - Mention that domain guessing does not work unless keyword.enabled is set turned off. - I think "partial URL" is a bad description.
"Location Bar" is the name of a feature, so should be capitalized. It's capitalized in in-product help.
OK, I think I addressed the comments... - I went with np's "Location Bar," since I think in-product help is a good indicator. - I can get a working Browse by Name example tomorrow when I go to campus, since I probably won't switch out OpenDNS tonight, but feel free to substitute a real one. - AH, "smart keywords," not "quick search." I thought I was going to write that one; good to see it's already there and I don't have to save it for another day. - I said about Domain Guessing: "it does not work unless Internet Keywords are disabled." - I think this is esoteric enough that I don't need to repeat the instructions for doing that, but I could be wrong. - I went with "incomplete URL," having found nothing authoritative in http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/domain-guessing.html - feel free to come up with a better term. I had another profound thought related Location bar issues, but now I can't think of what it it was.
Fixed the browse by name example, ready to go live?
Moved to KB at: Tue 12 of Feb., 2008 12:42 EST - de-capitalized "Bar" (Customize window says "Location". We'll change the in-product content.) - removed first note about smart keywords. - moved second note about smart keywords before instructions on turning it off. - simplified about:config instructions - used PREF tag for pref values - implemented SHOWFOR plugin (for displaying OS specific content) Any further discussion about the article should take place on the staging copy of the article.
