None of suggestions work: how to get rid of search suggestions?

Veröffentlicht

This is so annoying. I've read all the threads about how to get firefox to stop asking me to change my search provider. I want to use Google, period. Under these settings, I have unchecked all except for google. I have unchecked the box that says "provide search suggestions". It doesn't work. I don't have any toolbars installed. Now every time I enter something in the google search bar, firefox is wasting my time and I have to double enter my search criteria. There is only one search engine that matters: google. If you uncheck all the other search engines, and especially uncheck "provide search suggestions" and there is no other toolbars interfering with that, why does firefox ignore my settings? I have blinders on. Google, and only google. I even tried going to the about:config and doing the false setting for the ask option, but that does not work. I have booted in safe mode, and that does not work. I also don't want to disable my add ons. This is annoying. I wished they still provided support for Chrome, or else I would be using that. I just don't understand why Google doesn't understand what I am telling it NOT to do. I am beginning to hate firefox. Again. (I have tried all the latest versions of firefox, and they all just cannot accept what I am commanding it to do, like, it's saying, "Are you SURE you want to use only Google?" So maddening. arrrrrgh......

I notice that you use an outdated Firefox 38 version.

Can't install a more recent version like Firefox 45.6.0 esr if you do not want or can't use the current release?
