When I start typing, there's a feature that is not very good for my privacy: "Firefox Suggest" - it shows off my web history to anyone looking at my screen, complete with thumbnails for all the websites. How can we stop it?

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

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Address Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:
    History
    Bookmarks
    Open tabs
    Top sites
    Shortcuts
    Search Suggestions
