Don't want any search in address bar

When I begin to type a url in the address/location bar, I get a drop down menu that suggests a url and offers to switch tab

I don't want this. I want to type in my own address and not have the annoying drop down box

Using firefox 45.0.1, browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete=false

Thanks

The location bar drop-down list can show history items, bookmarked pages, pages opened in tabs, and search suggestions. You can set what suggestions show when you enter an URL in the location/address bar bar via Options/Preferences -> Privacy

  • Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:
    History
    Bookmarks
    Open tabs

Thank you so much for your help.

It turned out that Options > Privacy > Location Bar > Open tabs was checked. Unchecking this item (as well as leaving Location Bar > History and Location Bar > Bookmarks unchecked) resolved the issue for me.

It's quite strange because I did not have this problem until a few days ago. Somehow the Options > Privacy > Location Bar > Open tabs became checked without my knowing it.

Thank you again. I was pulling my hair out trying to resolve this
