Accessing bookmarks quickly in FireFox 3

I don’t have a problem admitting that I can be "slow" at times to discover things that have existed for a while. One of those finds, for me, is the ability to type in a FireFox’s bookmark title in the address bar.  For me, this is very similar to using Quicksilver for the Mac, where you just start typing something, and Quicksilver starts to filter through it’s huge list of applications it has indexed on your machine. The nice thing about FireFox’s address search is that you usually only have to type a letter or two of a bookmark before it appears.  This is way quicker than messing around with a mouse.  All I did below was hit Command+L (drops the cursor in the address bar), and then start typing the bookmark I want to access.
