    Seems obvious enough...but cannot seem to turn off this 'handy' feature that really seems to be a significany security threat:

    How do I turn off the auto-fill feature in Google Search, e.g...

    1. I cut n paste from an email, say um, a password retrieval...
    2. When I open a new Google browser window, Google 'conveniently' enters that cut n pasted text into the new search bar and executes a search.

    ? WTF ?
