Who doesn’t like it when a new feature is added, right? But, sometimes, one that’s been around for a while is something you can do without. For example, you don’t need Firefox to give you any search suggestions every time you search for something. The good news is that you can turn it off. If you ever change your mind, you can turn it back on at any time by following the steps you followed to turn it off in the first place.
You’ll need to go into Settings to get started. You can do that by clicking on the three-lined menu at the top right and clicking on Settings.
Once you’re in Settings, click on the Search option to your left. You will see the Show search suggestions in address bar results on the right pane. Make sure to uncheck this option.
You can also enable or disable any other listed options as long as you’re there. For example, you can enable or disable Show search suggestions in private window.
