    Firfox annoyance

    Firefox has started doing this annoying thing. As I type an URL in the address field, a drop down list appears as fire fox tries to attempt to guess where I want to go. It tries to guess based on sites I've visited. Unfortunately it guesses really bad. I don't need other people seeing what sites I've visited. How do I turn this off?

    You should be able to stop that by setting Firefox to clear all private data each time you exit.

    It also looks through your bookmarks, apparently it's a very popular feature. Some people find it too intrusive.
