As you type into the address bar, Firefox displays a drop-down list of suggested sites and actually the pages I have visited.I want to know how can I disable that ? Is that possible? I don’t like it it’s not useful and it’s so unsecure now every body that doesn’t know anything about computer is able to know what pages I visited before if he can be behind my desk.

You can check on the about:config page if the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled pref is set to false if you want to disable the location bar drop down list.
