Two interesting feautures of the Firefox address-bar

Secure sites

If we’re connected to a secure site, then the address bar will have a padlock by the arrow on the right and the background will turn yellow. The padlock also appears on the status bar as normal. Therefore, if the address bar isn’t yellow, then it’s not safe to give over credit card details.

Search Textbox

The Address bar is acting as a search text box. When we type something (not a full site address) in the address bar and press ENTER then it will automatically search in Google for that word. And if there a well known website with that word then it will redirect to that site.
