I want my awesome bar to 'autocomplete' with my history, but not other suggestions


The latest version of Firefox has been downloaded onto my laptop.

When I start to type an address in the awesome bar, I want it to 'autocomplete' with my history, but NOT with other suggestions for different websites.

At the moment, using the about:config website, I can either turn everything on or everything off.

I ONLY want it to suggest my history. I DON'T want it to give me other suggestions as it is currently doing.

Thanks in advance.
