Disable Firefox AutoFill / AutoComplete in the Address Bar

September 26th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Firefox's AutoFill feature, which appears in new versions of Firefox, makes it more difficult to type a URL such as 192.168.10.1, if 192.168.10.100 is in your history.

To disable this, enter about:config and set browser.urlbar.autoFill to False.

We receive dozens of questions every month from people who don't leave us with any way to contact them, so we have no choice but to ignore the question. We try to reply to as many questions as we can, if we know the email address of the person who asked the question. Thanks in advance for writing in :)
