How do I turn that function completely off?

You can set browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0 to disable the drop-down.

You can set keyword.enabled to false to disable searching via the location bar if that is what you mean.

Thank you. 'keyword.enabled' is already set to 'false'.

What I want is an Address/Location/URL Bar that doesn't do anything other than Address/Location/URL and that doesn't drop down. I'm on a computer, not a cell phone.
