In Firefox 3 Beta 2 I was setting browser.urlbar.richResults to false in about:config, as I prefer to use the 2.0-style URL bar. However, after an automatic update to Beta 3 the browser.urlbar.richResults setting does not seem to have any effect.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open about:config
2. Find the browser.urlbar.richResults setting and set to false
3. Close the about:config
4. Start typing in the URLBar and observe that rich results are still displayed
Actual Results:  
Rich results were displayed in URLBar irrespective of my settings.

Expected Results:  
2.0-style results should be displayed, when the setting browser.urlbar.richResults is set to false.

So, this was intentional :(

Still, for others' reference, there's a firefox extension that does the above, called oldbar:
