Clear Firefox 3 pesky navigation toolbar history
This will fix it:
Type : about:config
Then scroll down to: browser.urlbar.maxRichResults
and change the default. The default setting is 12 and if you
want nothing, you enter 0.
You should no longer have entries in the navigation bar.

Is there some useful purpose to your posting in a 6-year-old thread?

What 6-year old thread are you referring to Elvandil? This thread was posted on November 30 2008! I know, you were looking at my Join Date of Aug 2003 weren’t you?
