On the FF iOS app, how can I prevent the predictive search when I type in the search box from showing bookmarks and history? I did this a long time ago on the desktop version, but not sure how to do so on the app. Thanks!

Hi m_c_meyer,

You can follow the instruction here Turn search suggestions on or off on Firefox for iOS to turn off search suggestion on Firefox for iOS.

Hi @S_c I guess I was mistaken the first question as Search Engine suggestion. Hence, I recommend the article above.

For bookmark and history suggestion, I don't think there's a way to disable the suggestion in Firefox for iOS. In desktop though, you can go to about:preferences#privacy and change the setting from there.

Other thing that I can recommend, perhaps, is to use Firefox Focus instead. It's a simple and lightweight browser for casual browsing, since it will automatically forget your browsing history once you exit the app.
