Hello.

I'm having a problem with firefox and it is getting really annoying.

When i search for something on the top right search box, Firefox opens a website with my search already put into the site (For example ebay or amazon but it is irrelevant because i search something like "How to...") But i do not want to do this, It has never opened a site i want.

I have also disabled every search engine apart from google in the "Search" settings.

I have also refreshed firefox and reinstalled it multiple times.

Thanks

@jscher2000:

Note that you posted the same code twice and included #PopupSearchAutoComplete .addengine-item in both (should only be in the second example).

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

#PopupSearchAutoComplete .search-panel-header.search-panel-current-input,
#PopupSearchAutoComplete .search-panel-one-offs,
#PopupSearchAutoComplete-anon-search-settings,
#PopupSearchAutoComplete .addengine-item { 
  display: none !important;
}

#PopupSearchAutoComplete-anon-search-settings should hide the "Change Search Settings" item in the search bar drop-down list.
