how can i disable autocomplete in firefox


hi all.

i just recently switched from mozilla to mozilla-firefox and wondering if someone knows a way to disable the autocomplete in the location bar. i have always thought this feature was a little annoying. i went under privacy...saved formed information and unchecked save information but that didn't seem to work. thanks.

I think you can disable autocomplete in:

Options > Privacy > Saved Form Information

Sorry it didnt work. I guess you could try searching with Google. Also mozillas instruction page is pretty good. Here is the link to the part that describes the menu options in detail.
