Here is the situation :

I type for instance "f" :

Then I should press the "Down" :

And finally press "Enter" to go to the website.

Instead, in Chrome, I have just to type "f" :


Then Enter and it go to the website.

How could I skip the "Down" key step?

(I very often use the location bar this way, and with a netbook it's even annonying)

If I were a troll I would say you answered your own question: use Chrome. – William Jackson Jan 11 '12 at 22:17
Interestingly, I've seen this very feature receive considerable hate in Internet Explorer. – grawity Jan 11 '12 at 22:44
So, it's impossible to do that with Fiefox? – Dorian Jan 13 '12 at 13:05

Use the Enter Selects extension to open the first result without having to use the down arrow or mouse. This extension does not require a restart of the browser.

Description of the extension:

Press [Enter] in the AwesomeBar to select the first result, which will be automatically highlighted. This saves you from pressing [Down] or [Tab] before pressing [Enter] to select the first result.

Add Facebook to bookmarks; right-click the bookmark, click Properties, then enter f to the Keyword box.
