When I start to type an address in the URL bar, I get a drop down box directly below the url/address bar. The dropdown, which is as wide as my firefox window, contains a little magnifying glass icon and the text "Search with duckduckgo"
I don't want this drop down box at all but I can't seem to disable it.
I do not have anything checked (browsing history, bookmarks, or open tabs) checked under address bar in my privacy and security settings, and I do not have provide search suggestions checked in my search settings.
I tried this solution:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false
when I tried this, the value for the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference was already set to false, so this solution didn't help.
I would really appreciate some help removing this drop down. Thank you for reading.
