How do I turn off Firefox auto-completing what I type in the address bar with my own history and bookmarks?


I have buttons on my Bookmarks bar for any site that I frequently visit. How do I prevent ANYTHING from coming up when I type in the address bar? I found it a long time ago but I never changed it. Now I can't figure out how to get back there.

You can set set the location bar autocomplete to "Nothing":

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing
