Address bar changed after update?

Asked by Violet (6574points) January 18th, 2010

My computer just did a few updates, and now my address bar shows my browsing history. It can not be deleted with my usual Delete Browsing History (through the Tools button).
When I try to delete the the history directly from the address bar, they immediately come right back.
Does anyone know how to disable this?

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so why?
So many people prefer other browsers.
Have you tried Firefox?

CC Cleaner removes history for IE, FIrefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera simultaneously. Also lots of junk outside the browser.

But I hope someone else hasa simple answer to do if from your browser.

@Violet Do you use Firefox? Tools/Options/Privacy and select “Never Remember History”. Internet Explorer has this too!

No, I do not have Firefox, and I do not it.
I did try to change my settings for my history, but it does not affect the history on the address bar.

@Violet! Do you use Internet Explorer? I think I found something…Tools/Internet Options/ Content/Auto Complete and “click” Settings and change the option.
