I don't know where to even start, but how do I turn this annoying feature off?

I have gone through and clicked a never ending amount of pages and I still cannot find an answer.

I don't want a never ending drop down menu it's annoying and distracting as well as pointless, since it is easy enough to do in the background, I don't need it constantly on in the foreground. There is enough constant garbage to have to sort through, I don't need more garbage added to the visual pile of steaming crap. KISS applies.

Yes I am not happy about it..

Thanks in advance.

Double-click the browser.backspace_action preference to display a dialog where you can enter the desired value, then click OK. Your choices are:

0 = Go "Back" in history (default) 1 = Page Up 2 or other value = ignore the keypress

You can set this pref to 0 (zero) on the about:config page to disable the location bar drop-down list.

  • browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
