Firefox entry prediction crashes
When I enter URLs or Google search terms in the text boxes near the top
of an Iceweasel window, it drops down a menu of guesses as to what I'm
going to type next. I could do without its guesses. Especially because
sometimes when it does this it freezes the entire user interface
(I'm running icewm, by the way). Ths only way to continue seems to be
to kill iceweasel. This can be easy if I happen to have a shell
window open and I can still give it keyboard focus (killall firefox-bin
works), but if not, the only way out seems to be control-alt-backspace.
Now this is presumably a bug in iceweasel, and may have been fixed in
versions that haven't made it into etch (I'm running an up-to-date etch
on an 32-bit AMD system). But rather than wait forever, is there some
way I can suppress the feature -- I really don't need the proposed
autocompletions. Perhaps an option in an configuration file, or in one
of firefox's maze of configuration menus?
