Why can't omn.ja be deleted so the one-click search is disabled?

Posted

When I type an existing bookmark into the address line I no longer see it pop up immediately. Rather I see whatever the one-click search engine chooses. I want to be able to type a few characters and get my bookmark without having to select it from the options provided.

You can force bookmark results by starting with a '*' and a space.

You can possibly use code in userChrome.css to hide the first visit line in the drop-down.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#urlbar-results #urlbarView-row-0 {display:none !important}

In Firefox 69 and later you need to set this pref to true on the about:config page to enable userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder.

You would have to name your bookmarks as keywords. The closest you can get to this functionality (hiding the search with options) is going to about:Config and setting

  • keyword.enabled to false
  • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false

but even if you name your bookmarks as keywords (say you named youtube subscriptions to "yout" you'll still have to arrow down before hitting enter.

Unless I'm misunderstanding the behavior you're seeking?

Thank you for your response, but I have some bookmarks saved as the full URL, for example, en.wikipeda.org. Prevously, that is until the latest update, if I type en. the full URL populated the address bar.

I believe as you continue to use your bookmarks it'll populate the full URL like you want it to, a setting might've changed slightly with this update. I might be misremembering something I looked at earlier though
