Default Disable Bookmarks in the Firefox 3 Awesome Bar

There have been more comments than usual on an article that I wrote about the Firefox 3 Location bar also known as the Awesome Bar. Many users voiced their opinion that they did not like the new functionality of the location bar and that they would switch back to Firefox 2 or even another browser if there would not be a fix posted soon.
A fix meaning a configuration setting that would allow them to disable the inclusion of bookmarks in the list that is shown in the location bar. These users can now rejoice again because the Hide Unvisited Firefox extension hides bookmarks from being shown in that list. To be precise, bookmarks are not shown unless they are also part of the history which would include them obviously in the list.
The Firefox add-on is compatible to Firefox 3 final and can be downloaded from the official Mozilla website.
