Autocomplete does not work in url bar

I just downloaded Firefox 19.0, and now autocomplete no longer works in my URL bar. It still pulls up my bookmarks as options, but no sites I have previously visited pop up. I've checked my history and it's set to remember history, and I'm not on private browsing mode. Any help would be great!

Re: Autocomplete does not work in url bar

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
