How to make Firefox's awesomebar (addressbar) to work like in Chrome? I mean especially search (words search, not URLs) auto complete from search history.

This addon ( ) does not answer my question, but I like to use it too. This addon suggests words search from search engine suggestions list, but I want also suggestions from phrases, which I inputted early (like in Chrome), with immediately showing it in awesomebar by blue (or red) color while I typing. Also I want autosaving of this suggesstions between browser restart. Also I want autosaving of this suggestions between browser restarting.

I want like this, but not only for URLs suggestions (I want for words suggestions from my search history too):

Something like this:

P.S.: I don't have enough reputation to post images directly, sorry (I am new user here).

P.P.S: Omnibox is the other name for Omnibar addon, which does not satisfy my requests as I wrote in my question.

P.P.P.S: I don't want search complete from URLs and tittle of sites as in addon "Prospector - Speak Words" ( )

What is wrong with simply typing your search into your address bar, exactly? I can search words that will auto complete if I have searched them before. You can even set keywords like g for google, a for amazon and make simple searches like "g whatever" and get search results on whatever. – Dispenser Jul 3 '14 at 21:09
@Dispensador Of course I use keywords. But I want this (see image) not only for URLs, but for word phrases too (as in Google Chrome). I want suggestions with immediate auto complete of first in awesomebar (addressbar). – user1742529 Jul 3 '14 at 22:35

Install Omnibox add-on in Mozilla. It's very easy and works same as in Chrome.

You did not read my question. I wrote, that Omnibar addon is not the same as in Google Chrome. This addon does not satisfy my requests. That page only named Omnibar addon as Omnibox addon. – user1742529 Jul 2 '14 at 17:07
