It’s not all the time that we are using our own computer right? Or maybe someone else are using our computer and change something there. So sometimes, we notice that we are losing buttons on our Google Toolbar, or having new buttons. So in this post, I am sharing to you how to disable or enable the autofill button on your toolbar.

On Toolbar for Internet Explorer 5

Click the wrench button, which is just beside the sign in button. Once you clicked it, the toolbar options window will appear.

On the toolbar options window, click the autofill tab and uncheck the box to disable. If you want to enable just check the box. Click the save button after.

On Toolbar for Firefox

Click the settings button, found on the right of the toolbar.

Go to Options, and the Google Toolbar Options will appear.

Then uncheck the box for Autofill to disable, and just check it if you want to add the autofill button on your toolbar. Click OK after.

Note:
If however, you did follow these steps and still didn’t see the autofill button, just click the two-arrows on the toolbar, and you will see the autofill button there.

If you are using Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar, these are the steps to disable the feature:

  • Click the settings button on the right of the toolbar.
  • Then go to Options.
  • Click the ‘Search Box Settings’ button, which is on top of all the buttons on the window that will appear.
  • Uncheck ‘Suggest Popular Searches’ to disable the instant suggestion feature.
  • You can also uncheck ‘Suggest searches from my search history’ if you really don’t want Google to suggest whenever you type on that search box.
  • Click the OK buttons.

From Toolbar Firefox Help Center: ( I added this on April 6, 2008)

Please note that Google Suggest is separate from the Toolbar’s drop-down search history feature. If you’d like to clear your search history automatically when you exit Firefox, simply follow the instructions above, and un-check the box next to “Save the search history across browser sessions.”

To entirely disable the Toolbar’s drop-down search history, please visit http://www.google.com/support/firefox/bin/answer.py?answer=45143 for detailed instructions.

If you are using Firefox without the toolbar, you can also disable this feature.

  • Click the Google button on the left of the search box on Firefox.
  • Click ‘Manage Search Engines’
  • Uncheck the ‘Show search suggestions’.
  • Then click OK.
