Disabling Location and Search Bar autocomplete

The Location Bar and Search Bar both have autocomplete dropdowns that appear with a list of previously entered data. To remove them, you will need to edit your config files.

In userChrome.css, add the following lines:

/* Remove autocomplete dropdown */
#PopupAutoComplete > .autocomplete-tree { display: none !important; }

If you also want to remove the dropdown button at the far right of the Location Bar, add the following line:

.autocomplete-history-dropmarker { display: none !important; }

You may want to enable inline autocomplete instead.
