    di - 3+ Ways To Prevent Stop FireFox To Display Suggest

    In FireFox 3 one of the new feature introduced is the new location bar or revamped address bar which will display the suggestions of sites when you type any website URL which was previously accessed with in firefox.

    But some people dont want firefox to behave like this for some reason, if you are one of them then we have 3+ ways to prevent the firefox from displaying the sites suggestions from your bookmarks and recently typed URLs history.


    Stop Site Suggestions In FireFox Address Bar

    Open FireFox and type about:config in address bar and press enter, press the button which says Ill be careful and then type the following

    browser.urlbar.maxRichResults and set the value to 1 and restart firefox for the changes to take effect.

    Stop Recently Typed Websites URLs Entries In FireFox Address Bar

    This means when you type the URL in the address of a previously access URL it will show up suggestions to auto complete the site URL

    Open FireFox and type about:config in address bar and press enter, press the button which says Ill be careful and then type the following

    browser.urlbar.matchonlytyped and set the value to False

    Stop Bookmarks From Appearing Inn FireFox Address Bar History

    This will prevent your bookmarks from appearing the firefox address bar when you type related URL in firefox address bar which also exists in your bookmarks

    Open FireFox and type about:config in address bar and press enter, press the button which says Ill be careful and then type the following

    places.frecency.unvisitedBookmarkBonus and places.frecency.bookmarkVisitBonus and set the value to zero.

    Just in case if you dont want to play with about:config in FireFox there is also a addon available for the same purposes mentioned above

    Distrust This firefox addon lets you hide all your surfing trails that leaves behind, once this extension is installed and turned on it will remove firefox history items cache and cookies so that to avoid them showing up in the firefox address bar.



    Note: It does not remove cookies just make them expire when FireFox is closed.

    It works from FireFox 2.0 3.0 *

    Install Distrust
