Browser URL Autofill Stopped Working

Posted

Hello!

Suddenly, the URL autofill on FF has stopped working. To be more accurate, it is partially working only for certain websites.

I am attaching to screenshots to understand better the case. As it can be seen, when typing f for example, the facebook.com suggestion autofills, whereas when typing g, google does not. Same stands for other websites too.

browser.urlbar.autoFill is set to true.

I have set the address to suggest only browsing history (not bookmarks, not open tabs) as this is the only one I care about.

Not sure if this has something to do with the FF 62.0 update I have done yesterday (it worked fine until that point).

Any thoughts?

Thank you! :)

Hello,

I’ve exactly the same problem described by the original poster, that appeared after the latest Firefox Quantum update to version 62 (64bit) on Windows 8.1 : domain suggestion in URL bar is not working anymore while the related settings on about:config and other user options are set to enable this feature.

Any suggestion is welcomed.

Thank You

Same problem here. Screen shot snippet attached showing I turned it off. Then I turned it back on, restarted FF, and no change.

Does it take more than this to activate it?
