I accidently allowed the FF to enable autocomplete / search suggestions in private mode on my phone. With about:config gone, I can't find where I can deactivate it.

So how do I re-deactivate the search suggenstions in private mode?

Chosen solution

Should be in Settings -> Search

That helped. Thank you. I searched in all the privacy settings. Never occured me to look under "Search".

Please, someone, answer explicitly:

1: WHY was about:config removed from Firefox for Android?

2: Where is the setting to divorce the URL bar from any search function, so that when I enter a URL into the, ummm, "URL bar". the browser actually goes where I directed it, not to ANY search-bar response?
