(Firefox 3.6.8 + NoScript / Windows XP SP3
I'm fond of Firefox (particularly with NoScript), but there's one thing it does which I would really like to stop:
...when typing in to the address field, if I type something which Firefox doesn't understand it goes off to Google and searches for whatever I've typed in.
But if searching for something is what I'm trying to do, I put it into the search field (adjacent to the right) !
I don't mind "suggesting from history" or "suggesting from bookmarks" while typing into the address field - that's quite useful; and auto-appending the http
:// prefix or auto-completing the URL with .com, .co.uk, .org or whatever is good too...
...but running off to Google is something I'd really like to stop
is there a way to prevent this, please?
TIA and best wishes, HJ.
