how can I remove location bar suggestions without disabling my enter key?

more options

I am trying to remove history, bookmarks and open tabs from the location bar suggestion settings. When I uncheck them they are successfully removed from the search suggestions however, this also causes my enter key to stop working. With the boxes unchecked, and with a url or keyword in the location bar, my enter key does not perform the search function, and instead I have to manually click on the search arrow at the far right of the location bar.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Appearance
  • Do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

You can set browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled to false on the about:config page.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
