results of the random search in history

(very) recently I started to find a (very) little research google, yahoo and bing that I did NOT do (me) in my story. Something else odd (to me): they seem to disappear from history as weel, without allow me to delete them.
How is this possible and what can / should do to avoid this problem does not happen? Thanks for the tips!


Found! Went through all the tips troubleshooting basic and that the last extension (of course), I checked was the cause: TrackMeNot - "it works in Firefox as a low priority process background that periodically issues requests from random search to popular search engines, for example, AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and Bing. It hides the tracks of real users search in a cloud of 'ghost' queries, greatly increasing the difficulty of aggregate that data into accurate or identifying user profiles. »
I had recently downloaded, as well as a few other extensions privacy improves as ghostery, in response to the amended google privacy policy without realizing how it works exactly.
My apologies for the noise!

  • How can I turn off default 1 search result in the awesome bar?

    Since the release of 43, it seems that the Awesome bar fills the first result as a generic 'visit' or 'Search' for anything typed in the bar. It's very frustrating because I know where I want to go, and my search history used to fill specific sites, I went to. This new feature to the Awesome Bar takes you is a generic search engine default search, or right on the first page for a specific site.

    For example, it may be a forum page that I regularly to. and in the latest Firefox would fill this page first in my results, which allows a fast navigation. However, the most recent update makes it do that the first result is a query to perform a generic search for what I typed in, or at best to take me to the first page of the site in question, make me have to either type the URL complete, favorite every page ever, I want to navigate to and just use bookmarks now or , or cross my fingers and pray that they default 1 result in the Awesome bar accurately reflects my wishes of navigation (which he never does).

    Is it possible to either:

    1. find the process that causes this 1 default result in the Awesome bar and disable/delete, preferably with extreme prejudice.

    2 prevent the features of Firefox that interacts with a browser default search?

    In its current form, I deliberately ignore the 1st result of the Awesome Bar, because it never fulfills what I want. Specifically, it will fill never I don't want things.

    Hi Danon72.

    To disable the 'Visit' item in the list, please edit the preference browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete in The editor of Configuration of Firefox to false.

  • If FF 39.0 on a new PC with Windows 7 Pro 64 bits - in the sidebar search results bBookmarks are slow - is new facility there a solution for this?

    Recently I've just set up a new PC with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) as the operating system. I just imported bookmarks from my PC in one. HTML file, I created from my old PC. Now whenever I type a search term in the search box to refine my search for one of my favorites of many, sometimes even by typing in the term search begins to lag while I'm typing more letters. Search term/terms once entered, it seems to take 15-20 seconds before the results list appears. This used to be almost instantaneous in this same version of FF (39.0) on my old PC 64 bit of Windows 7 (Home Premium) to bring up the results. I already tried to install the add-on called "signed 1.3.1 - 0 maintenance of the premises and this time there really doesn't make any difference that it helped when I got FF 38.0.5 on my old PC to Win 7 64-bit." Can it still be addressed. Please update as soon as POSSIBLE with the solution.

  • column of file missing in the bookmarks search results

    In the library of all bookmarks page, when you search for bookmarks, the returned list does not record information. When I find dead links, I would go to this bookmark folder to see if there are any more stale bookmarks that are. I guess that more people use tags as the folders and subfolders to sort their bookmarks? For example, under Science, I have astronomy, physics, etc.

    column of file missing in the bookmarks search results

    Install the "Show Parent folder" and (also useful) extensions "Go Parent Folder" for what you want, you want to really read the knowledge base article.

    When I type in the search box, suggested guest and search history is displayed, but when I use it, nothing happens, historical research and promps suggested search box just disappear, and I'm always on the current page. I have to type in the name of the site in the area of research before I can hit the search button.

    If you click on the 'down' arrow in the Google search box and then place your cursor over the term that you want in the search history for even a left click on the mouse and then hold the cursor over the keyword desired for a few seconds, it works.
