I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

Hello dmcentee,

That preference was removed about a year ago - see this bug report :

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1502392


You could add code to a userChrome.css file :

#PopupAutoCompleteRichResult {
  display: none!important;
}

Thanks McCoy, that worked great.

I'm about to give up on firefox. Every time I get an update it takes a few hours to unscramble stuff that used to work

    My pleasure - I'm glad it worked !

    Aww, you don't really want to give up on the best browser, do you ?

    It'll get better; just you wait and see .....

The more worrying thing is that even though this works, it means it's tracking this to begin with.

It should not be. At all. Ever. Is there a way to turn it off?

Also, it only just started and told me it was a thing with the 75.0 update on the update confirmation page. It wasn't a year ago.
