How to disable Address Bar Word Highlighting

I recently upgraded firefox 13 to 18 , one thing that bothers me is that when I type a text in the search bar to see the url suggestions , all URLs from the drop down list have the text's words or letters highlighted in grey within them (as a way of telling me how they are related to the text being typed ) . I would like to disable this feature .

Please follow the following steps to disable automatic suggestions

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Click on Tools tab located on the top Menu bar
  3. Click on Options
  4. In the new window click on Privacy tab on the top
  5. In the Location Bar panel click on When using the location bar, suggest: drop down
  6. Select Nothing from the list
  7. Click on OK

You will no longer get suggestions for URL's you type.
