Hi all, how can I turn off the address bar suggestions from the browsing history? In the desktop version it's enough to change the address bar settings as shown here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/awesome-bar-search-firefox-bookmarks-history-tabs#w_changing-your-location-bar-settings Is there a way to disable that option on the Android version too? Thanks in advance.

On Android, I don't see any way to change the sources of suggestions in the address bar.

(Creating the browser.urlbar.suggest.history preference and setting it to false, which is the value assigned on desktop Firefox when you uncheck the box, has no effect on Android.)
