Unable to completely disable auto-fill suggestions in search bar.

Posted

Entering a simple "e" in the search/adress bar still suggests ebay.com, "r" suggests rambler.ru and so on, this is highly annoying seeing as I only want it to suggest things out of my history, not suggest new items.

Tried;

Clearing all data browser.urlbar.autoFill false browser.formfill.enable false signon.autofillForms false

Firefox latest (non beta), Android 4.2.2, HTC One X.

At loss what to do at this point, if I can't get it fixed I'm switching firefox for chrome in a heartbeat because I keep losing so much time typing in extra information or deleting auto-fills information.

To clarify: I've never visited or searched for either ebay or rambler.ru (Don't even speak Russian for that matter), while I suspect I've overlooked something obvious (Maybe it's google search? But surely I would be able to disable that auto-suggestion/filling somewhere?)

Or maybe the behaviour I'm looking for is for my search bar to always suggest sites from my history at top when I click it from the firefox home window or anywhere else, like it does for example in Google Chrome for Android?

Menu -> Settings -> Customize -> Search Settings -> "Show search suggestions".

Disable that and you will not see any more search suggestions from Google.
