Is there a way to make the Firefox address bar only show the first level URL the user visited before?

If I visited, I hope that whenever I type e, it will only show and not***.

Is there an add-on or trick to do that?

I can confirm that there is no core feature in Firefox that does this (for example, via a pref). I should also add that, for the most part, this type of "simplified" navigation is not going to work for most users, even the type of users I presume you want to configure this for. – benc Dec 17 '11 at 5:11

If it's for your frequently visited websites, you can add them as bookmarks (say make a bookmark folder with just these "url hacks").

After that, your URL bar will show the bookmarked (root) url as first result.

This is a nice tip. I notice that too but didn't relate it to this problem. I will mark this as the answer. – zhaow Jul 4 '12 at 7:16
