Wikipedia search box?
I have 2 PCs, both running XP Home and the latest Firefox (version 8.0) On the desktop machine the search box responds with a drop down list of possible topics as soon as I start to type. On the other(laptop) it only offers a selection of what I have previously searched. So far I haven't been able to find any setting to change to get the full dropdown to appear on the laptop. Using Google Chrome things work as I want, but Firefox is my preferred browser
Thanks Nihiltres: I've looked at that and it doesn't fix it. I suspect it is something in the update from Ff 7x to 8 that is handled differently on the 2 machines. possibly the Ff setup was different and now is very different. I might try copying the profile from 1 to the other to see if that brings the behaviours into line
Yes it was something in the profile. I copied the working profile over and AOK
N - I'll give you best as the sensible answer

As a Mac user on 10.6.8, I can't duplicate what you see using any of Safari 5.1.1, Firefox 7.0.1, or Chrome 15.0.874.106. (Edit: your question got me to update Firefox to 8.0, where I still don't see the problem.)
If the feature is a function of your browser, you might be able to turn it off, thereby avoiding your problem. Check Firefox's settings. In my Firefox settings, I have a "Privacy" section with a checkbox "Remember search and form history", which is unchecked. Try seeing if you have a similar checkbox somewhere on your version of Firefox.
