Or their ‘personal search completion settings’ to stop working. Can’t be turned off, stopped, ended or killed. Well, I haven’t figured it out yet.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Enter "about:config" in the browser address bar, without the quotes, of course
  2. Find browser.search.suggest.enabled and set to false
  3. Close tab/window

Would unchecking this box: "Tools, Options, Privacy, History, Remember search and form history" accomplish the same thing?

That doesn’t kill it either. I’ve tried that before when searching for a remedy.

Thanks.

BTW, I just checked. It is still set to ‘false,’ all these months later. I wonder what that field does if it doesn’t do what it is suppose to do.
