    Firefox - search with google irritation


    On my workstation I've had Firefox for many years, updating as required, and now at 65.0.2 (64bit). A short while back I recall seeing a bar pop up under the URL window as I entered data, with suggested search results a la 'search with google' I found this irritating and managed to remove it but can't remember how other than I think I changed something in the about:config settings.

    Yesterday I installed Firefox 65.02(64 bit) from scratch on a new Win10 machine and the 'search with google' bar pops up again. I've searched for ways to remove this but can't find any solution that works. What's also odd is that the about:config shows different entries than my workstation version for browser.urlbar....... etc. I'd have thought they'd have been the same.

    Any suggestions on how to remove this irritating pop up bar?

    Thanks

    :)

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

  3. Google Plans a Web-browser, To be called Google Chrome

    Keep in mind the default page for Firefox is Google search. Coincidence? I think not.

    Google Plans a Web-browser, To be called Google Chrome

    Firefox 2's built in address bar suggestion is an exact rip-off of google desktop search.
