How do I COMPLETELY turn off search suggestions in address bar?
I want to turn off search suggestions in the URL bar. Yes, they are turned off in Options. Please see the attached screenshot. I don't want anything to happen when I start typing an address in the bar. I've done this before on an older install, but I can't seem to figure out where in the about:config it is. Thanks.

In about:config see if toggling this pref to false helps you.

Unfortunately it didn't work for me. I restarted FF twice, didn't go, then restarted the computer just to be sure. Still nothing.
Here's some shots of my config. I'm pretty sure I've got everything set to false that needs to be.
I do remember having to create a txt file like that way back on version 56-ish, and I've just been updating since. I finally replaced the machine the other day, and although I backed up everything else, I totally forgot my profile folder. Now that HDD has already been wiped.

I did a bit more searching. I found some much older add-ons (version 45ish) and some configuration for them. One of them broke it down into creating the chrome folder and the text file. What I didn't check when I created it was that it didn't auto-rename with a ".txt". It sure did (thanks Windows......). I simply edited the .txt out and it worked perfectly.
Oh, great! Glad that worked. I was hoping one line in a text file couldn't go wrong. :D
