Safari addressbar dropdown

Postby Anonymosity » Wed 17 Nov, 2010 2:11 pm

In Safari 4.1.2 on Mac OS 10.4.11, I noticed that if I start typing an address into the address bar, I get a dropdown with (I guess) the most recently visited sites listed. Where is this coming from? I cleared the cache, history and cookies, and this list still appears. Is there any way to disable it permanently?

It might be data from Top Site.

Even if you reset Top Sites, you still get that. It must be from bookmarks, but why it chose the ones that it did, I have no idea. Apparently, there is no way to get rid of that (according to others' responses).
