FF65 - Can't turn off address bar suggestions

Posted

After updating to Firefox 65 (Mac), there is now this enormous green drop-down that appears whenever I start typing in the address bar, and I cannot turn this thing off.

I've looked in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Address Bar, and all the selections there are unchecked. Search > Default Search Engine > Provide Search Selections is also unchecked.

Is there something in about:config I need to toggle? Or will I have to edit my userChrome.css to turn this off?

Thanks!

Hello Thorzdad2,

You could indeed try to add this to your userChrome.css file :

#PopupAutoCompleteRichResult {

  display: none!important;

}

Sorry for not responding sooner. I've been neck-deep in a project this week. I was just now able to apply your fix, and can confirm that it works wonderfully.

Many thanks, McCoy!

Well, the 68.0 update broke McCoy's fix. The gawdawful acid-green url-bar dropdown is back with a vengeance.

Why isn't there some simple/obvious way to disable this thing? Like a True/False setting in about:config? If it's in there, it certainly isn't easily discoverable. Or, a button in the Search section of the Preferences?

Sorry to hear that the problem is back ....

Would you try this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults and set its value to 0 (= zero)

Then close and restart Firefox.

Note that setting the preference to "0" effectively disables the Location Bar dropdown entirely.

If this is not what you want, chenge the value back to its default
(= 10).

In that case you could check some other preferences, when you type in the search bar browser.urlbar.

Thank you, McCoy! That worked. There's still a teeny, tiny sliver of the dropdown, but it's pretty unnoticeable.

In Firefox 68 you can use this code in userChrome.css for the address bar drop-down list.

#urlbar-results { display:none!important; }
