Hacking Google Suggest

To enable in the location bar, first go into about:config and enter google.suggest into the filter. Change the setting google.suggest.useForLocationBar to true and copy the value from google.suggest.serviceURL.search to google.suggest.serviceURL.location. To copy the value, right click on google.suggest.serviceURL.search, and select Modify.

Now restart and you can start using the service with the I’m Feeling Lucky feature that you’d normally find when searching from the location bar. Enjoy!!

Update.

The problem with this ‘hack‘, and probably the reason why has disabled it by default is that it interferes with the history drop down in the location bar. So use with caution.
