How do I disable suggestions below URL address bar as I type?

Posted

I unchecked everything in address bar suggestions in the privacy settings. Went into the search settings and unchecked provide search suggestions as well. I tried to eliminate all search engines for "One Click Search Engines" but wasn't allowed to eliminate all of them. Also went in about:config and set to false the autofill and autocomplete for firefox URL browser lines. The "awesome bar" still mirrors everything below the address bar that I type in the URL address bar. This is new to version 65 and annoying.

hi, support for the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference got removed in firefox 65 unfortunately.

as a workaround you could try creating a userChrome.css file with the following content in order to hide the addressbar dropdown-menu:

#PopupAutoCompleteRichResult {

  display: none!important;

}

And on top of sticking users with a regression for no good reason, they give you completely misleading advice.

The right way is:

user_pref("browser.urlbar.maxRichResults", 0);

So it did. That does not contradict the fact that it is misleading.

Ubuntu forums are pretty much 100% filled with answers like this. I think you know what I mean.

I do want to apologize for the bit about Mozilla misleading their users. I didn't realize at that time the advice had been given by a volunteer.
