Some people might feel uncomfortable with this new feature and want to disable it. Some might want to increase / decrease the no. of suggestions in drop-down list.

So here is a simple and small tutorial for adjusting no. of suggestions in addressbar or to completly disable this new feature:

1. Open firefox and type about:config in the addressbar and press Enter. It'll confirm, click on I'll be careful, I promise! button.

2. Now type browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in the Filter box. It'll show a single entry in the results window.


3. Now double-click on this entry or right-click on it and select "Modify". It'll open new dialog box asking to enter your desired integer.
