Whenever I visit a website, even if I manually type in a full URL, Firefox will automatically add the root path of that website to the list of completions in the address bar, and make it the first entry. I find this behavior very disruptive, since there are several sites that I don't care about visiting the root of, and I'd like Firefox to autocomplete the one path that I intentionally visited.
For example, I manually typed in the URL "escapistmagazine.com/v2/category/zero-punctuation/". The next time I tried to visit this page, I typed "esc" into the address bar, and the first autocomplete result was "https://www.escapistmagazine.com", which I had never visited.
It is impossible to remove this automatic suggestion from the list. Using Shift+Del will appear to remove the suggestion, but if I simply close that tab and open another one, it will reappear (without me even needing to visit the site again).
How can I prevent Firefox from automatically inserting this autocomplete result, or at least prevent it from always being the first suggestion?
