Pre-fetching of website stopped working, yet I have it selected as enabled
Until today, every time I used firefox, once I'd start writing the address of the website, the address would come up entirely and I'd just have to select it. I think it's called pre-fetching of website? Today, it just stopped working but I have not changed any of my settings.
Another possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Make sure that the Location Bar is not set to "Nothing":
- Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest: History, Bookmarks, History and Bookmarks
Hi, Thanks but it does not seem to be the problem. I checked and the location bar and it was set to History and Bookmarks and not to Nothing...
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
Thanks...but it did not work.

Thanks!!! That was it. I followed the instructions, and deleted the "places.sqlite" file and now everything is back to normal.
