I just want my address bar to show the URLS i typed. I don't want it to show any suggestions when I type something I don't want any search results. Just to keep the urls I have typed.

I have turned off suggestions but that doesn't keep the typed in URL.

I have done the about:config thing about rich results and stuff but that also removes ALL the urls.

In general I just want it to say

yahoo.com netflix.com facebook.com whateveriwant.com

and not all the other pages I frequent.

For example, I moderate a FB group and I'm constantly on that page. I don't want that page showing up on my bar. I have delete it by the highlight delete button but is that a permanent solution?

Anyway, I just want a simple URL bar back.

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).

What happened to the address bar in update 65? It's awful. It use to only show my most visited bookmarks(ie:facebook) or websites I physically typed in. Now it shows everything but that. It makes it super cluttered and overall awful. I have tried messing with the settings and nothing works. I feel like I need to downgrade and disable automatic updates or move to a new explorer all together.

Since the last update a blue bar below the url bar appears.

I have followed the support suggestions by 1) unchecking relevant boxes in Preferences, Search and Preferences, Privacy.

Then followed suggestions in about:config by changing the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled to false.

This has not resolved the issue after several attempts.

Hit Reset Firefox and again reset the browser.urlbar.autocompleted.enabled to false. Again this did not resolve the issue.

Please advise how to resolve as the blue bar and list of suggestions is both not required and annoying to the point of no longer using this browser.

Shift+Delete no longer works to remove these erroneous results. I've never heard of, used, visited, or wanted to visit "http://nycsubway.org/" or anything related to it, but now firefox's "awesome" bar sends me there instead of Netflix, which I use daily. I've turned off all the random suggestions for the address bar but these random, wrong, ads keep popping up. If I've never used it, and I'm not searching for it, putting it there must mean "http://nycsubway.org/" has paid you to be an annoyance in or lives. Or why else would you do this?!

The awesome bar's adress-bar history is a privacy threat. How to erase routinely. Even CCleaner Pro doesn't get it.

I've researched the net and every "solution" that has been offered fails to work.

I'd like the awesome bar (address bar) not to remember or suggest anything and if by chance it does remember something I want CCleaner to be able to delete the entries.

This is a deal breaker. If I can't protect my privacy using Firefox I'll find another browser. I am a longtime Firefox user and want to stay with Firefox.

In the past, I have been able to get to bookmarks on the bookmark dropdown menu by hitting the key that corresponds to the first letter of the bookmark. For example, to get to a bookmark starting with "b", I hit the B key on the keyboard and the first bookmark starting with B is highlighted. Hit it again and the next one starting with B is highlighted. After the last one, loop back to the first one.

That no longer works. Hitting B now stops on "Bookmark This Page", and depending on the time between key hits, it will also stop on "Bookmark All Tabs...". It will not go to any other lines on the menu. Now, to get to "Bank", I hit C followed by up arrow.

Also, behavior is erratic in that sometimes it will stop on a line that does not match the key being hit.

In documenting this, I just discovered that if I type "ba" it will go to BANK. That will help for now. I hope this can be fixed in the future.

My Firefox just updated to 62.0 and now my URL bar doesn't automatically fill in site names like it did. "Fox" would become "FOXNEWS" but not now.

I would begin an address bar/URL entry like "FAC" and it would autocomplete as "FACEBOOK.COM" and I would just hit [ENTER] or "FOX" would become "FOXNEWS.COM", then I would have to hit [ENTER]. Those choices still appear in a drop-down list but it was faster when the URL automatically filled. I had this functionality until the update to 62.0 this week. Can I restore this function in the configs?

After downloading and installing Firefox 62.0, I found that when I mouse over the address bar, the link to NPR's Morning Edition had disappeared -- it used to appear automatically, along with my school and public email addresses and the news sites I most often go to. At the same time, two new -- and unwanted -- links appeared: The Needle Drop and Overstock Outlet Locations. How can I eliminate these latter two sites and restore NPR's Morning Edition to me address bar drop down menu?

Long story short, before the latest FF update 62.0, when I started typing an letter or two in the address bar, I used to get my desired website link on the top of it.

Now, I'm not sure what happened but now I'm getting probably the most visited website link rather than the preference given as earlier. I have to type nearly half the website address or sometimes even the complete one to get the actual web address I'm trying to access, this is getting irritating. Even bookmarks aren't give the top preference over the most/latest visited link.

for example, when I typed - mo, I used to get mozilla links in the address bar drop down list - I just had to open the link I was interested in, now I have to type nearly the entire word, to even get the list related to that specific website.

Under Tools>Options>Privacy and security, Bookmarks under address bar is checked, but It still doesn't work. I have to type the whole thing in. For example, if I want to go to www.google.com, I can just type in 'goo' and the rest would be highlighted in blue, and I can press enter. This stopped working, the rest won't show up highlighted in blue anymore, how can I fix this?

I have upgraded a few times recently to 37 and now to 39 but the firefox homepage search bar has lost all of my history and more importantl, I used to be able to double-click on it to bring up a list of recent searches. Oh yeah, and the font has been changed and is now too big :(

Is there anything I can do to import / get back my list of old searches and change the other bits? If not I will be stuck on 32 / 33 for ever!

Cheers, Jason.
