google search box -system guesses what you are typing

Postby marcia » Thu Mar 05, 2009 8:05 pm

I cannot remember what it is called when you start typing into google search and as you are typing the system trys to guess what you wish to type. This happens in google earth as well and in my thunderbird mail. I like it actually but my relative who uses linuxmint does not like it and wants to disable this feature.

Does anyone know how to do this? I know it is something simple, but just cannot remember how right now.

Thanks for any help.

If you mean the Search bar in Firefox you get into with Ctrl + k
Right click it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
