Background

In Firefox 3, the Location Bar received a number of improvements. Among those improvements was the move to a XUL richlistbox widget for the auto-complete dropdown.

For performance reasons, items that appear in the dropdown are retrieved in batches (“chunks”) on a timer. This preference determines the time between fetching batches.

Possible values and their effects

Number of milliseconds to wait between fetching batches of dropdown items. Default is 100 (1/10th of a second)
