How do I disable "One-click Search Engines" in the location bar?

Posted

Since Firefox 55, the "One-click Search Engines" bar containing all your added search engines that shows up when you type into the search box also appears in the location bar. How do I remove it?

This may not be what you want either, but I'm goig to give it a try anyway :

In 'about:config' look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches

and set its value to   false (= default)

Hi   !

Go to the 3-bar menu => Options => Search => under 'One-click Search Engines' remove the ones you don't want.

If that doesn't do the trick, then :

Type in the address bar   about:config   (press Enter) (promise to be careful, if asked) Type and look for the preference : keyword.enabled and set its value to   false

Any good  ?

Hi,

Thank you, but neither of those solves me problem. I don't want to disable search in the location bar. I want to disable the new icons that show up along the bottom since version 55. It's a list of all the search engines you have added, and you can click on them to search for whatever you've typed in the location bar. I have no use for that as I can use the keyword feature to search with a specific site already, without needing to use the mouse. I can't take a screenshot because the location bar closes when I press print screen, so I have I've described the feature I'm talking about well enough now.
