I'm running version 38.0.1 and am wondering why I get the following search suggestions in my address bar, take a look <a href="http://imgur.com/aVvBr26">here</a>.

In Settings --> Search, I have 'Provide search suggestions' unchecked, and in Settings --> Privacy --> Location Bar, I have all the suggestions unchecked.

Likewise, in about:config, I have the following set to 'false':

browser.urlbar.autoFill browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed

Is there a way to prevent search suggestions and/or autocomplete from being displayed when I begin a url in the address bar?

You can check these prefs:

  • browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled = false
  • browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0

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
