Why can firefox not save 8 searches with the same letter?

Posted

I use Bing search, and I use the small search bar in the top right corner. I can search for 7 items using the same letter and Firefox will save them all fine. When I try to search for an 8th item using that same letter, instead of that 8th search item being saved into the list of recent searches (with a little clock icon), an item that I have never searched for, chosen from the suggested searches becomes saved instead, as if I had actually typed and searched for that. The attached image shows what happens (from left to right) when I search for 'parsley' with 7 P-letter searches already saved. Rather than add 'parsley' to my saved searches, Firefox adds 'pinterest' instead, even though I have never searched for that.

Thanks

Hi, Is the little icon you see showing a icon to add a search engine ? Check under Options and Search to find out if your adding search engines.

I think you are hitting the limitations of the small Search Bar. You may want to try searching in the URL Bar instead as you will have a few more than 7 showing stored there.

Sorry I do not have a fix for that. There maybe something in About:Config browser.search that can be changed but I do not know myself.
