Remove searchbar History

Posted

I recently had to reset my firefox browser, now something I have done before I can't find how to do again. I do not want to have the search result show my entire history of anything involving the word I am searching for, nor do I want to clear my history. I have already gone to about:preferences#search and unchecked provide search suggestions. I assume there is an option in about:config but I cannot find what it is. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this about the separate search bar or about the location/address bar drop-down list?

Make sure that you do not get confused by search suggestions that are provided by the search engine server based upon what you have typed so far.
