I have been using the built-in search box which comes preinstalled in my firefox browser, and daily i make some searches, but i recently found that when i just start typing something in the same search box, the previously searched keywords diretly show up there, revealing all my previous searches which is not a good feature. Anyway i can disable this feature to remove or hide the previous searches? – Question by Ashwin Kumar
