Hey,

I would like to know if anyone on here could help me with the Mozilla browser.

I would like to know how I can remove the drop down search (auto search) from the Mozilla browser as I find it rather bugging.

Thanks,

Christa

It´s probably listed under auto completion in the preferences. I don´t use Mozilla, so I can´t say exactly.

Everytime I type something into google it comes up with lots of other searches with the same letter... grrr!

Please help!

"Everytime I type something into google it comes up with lots of other searches with the same letter.."

With this description, all I can think of is the following:

De-activate "Enable Internet Keywords" (Edit, Preferences, Navigator, Smart Browsing).

I use Mozilla 1.7.1. What version do you have? Is it Firefox perhaps?

Christa,

I think the page you linked is not what you want. That's Find As You Type, it searches the page for the characters as you type them.

Looking through, I found a preference for turning off the auto complete popup in the address bar, but nothing about in form text boxes.

You might want to try asking your question at the MozillaZine Forums.

If you are in Firefox, go Tools > Internet Options. Click on Privacy. Next to "Saved Form Information" click the "+" sign. Uncheck the box that says "Save information I enter into...." that should fix your problem.  Big thumbs up

As F9 said "Saved Form Information" is what you want.

I would die without it, personally.
