It can be disabled, but not from the Preferences dialog. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Preferences 2. Look for a way to disable type-ahead find Actual Results: There is no such option. Expected Results: Perhaps it should be listed under General? Or perhaps a new category.
-> RFE Mozilla Firebird Help has a solution. http://texturizer.net/firebird/tips.html#beh_taf Don't let Mozilla Firebird bloated by mess of options. So I suggest WONTFIX.

Just because six prefs exist doesn't mean they all need to have UI Links only and on/off are all that end-users are likely to use. The rest is stuff more suited for hidden prefs.
Created attachment 130087 [details] [diff] [review] patch with less options this patch only includes UI options for on/off, text/links only, and sound on/off. I thought it would be good idea to keep the sound pref as i have heard some people complaining about it.
