Remove "http:/website -- visit" link from address bar
Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...
I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...
However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.
What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.
Thank you and cheers!
Hello rok.goljat, I think the only way is to uninstall and reinstall Firefox but I'm not completely sure. Maybe wait for a more experienced contributor or try it out. Tell me how it goes and, Stay Safe!Read this answer in context 👍 0

Hey Tommy, thank you for your reply. I am ashamed that i did not try this before asking :) I was afraid of loosing all extensions and certificates, but synchronization works great. Anyway, i had to do clean reinstall with the option to restore to default settings and it fixed this problem.
Awesome!! No problem because I sometimes don't think throughly enough as well!
If you'd want, I'd really love if you Vouch(give me feedback) to Mozillians. Here's my link: https://mozillians.org/en-US/u/Tommy/
