    Dropdown text box.


    Whenever I enter a search on the Internet, a little box always drops down from the search bar to tell me what is similar to what I'm searching for. I don't want this to be there. Is there a way to get rid of it? It happens on Google, if it matters.

    See if you can find an option that can get rid of 'cookies'. I'm no expert on these but they seem to be added when you type something regularly. Once you get rid of the cookies the box shouldn't appear. As I don't have the name of your browser, I can't give you anything more specific than that.

    Yes, I know that, but every time I want it to do that, I have to click on the search bar and choose my preference every time. I want to keep it at a selection more permanent. More permanent as in I want it to not go back to what it keeps going back to, but to stay at the "none" setting. It changes every time I go to a different web page and log out of the browser.
