How to hide all Awesome Bar suggestions?

Posted

Hi, Before I updated Firefox to 65.0 today, I was able to use the "Awesome Bar" without it ever displaying any suggestions at all. "Provide search suggestions" is disabled in Preferences > Search, as are all three of "Browsing history", "Bookmarks", and "Open tabs" in Preferences > Privacy & Security. I have not changed any of these settings since I updated the software, but now whenever I type anything into the address bar it still shows up a bar suggesting only what I type along with the one-click suggestions. I would prefer to completely disable all of drop-down suggestions entirely, and I'm not sure how to go about doing this. If it's a feature that was removed in this update (which seems probable) hopefully there can be a way to reverse that.
