I want to show you what I do not want in my URL bar. See attachment. I want to 'switch off' the rest of the contents below the main 'home' of the url. ie. www.facebook.com, in this case, when the auto fill scrolls down. Thanks.

There is a setting area when you type 'about:config' in the url bar and enter. I am not sure if i can 'switch off' that auto fill contents from there. if yes, please advise which one.
