Go to search settings, top right hand corner, and change things there.

have tried that but under search settings the only options you get are

Google Instant
Use Google Instant — predictions and results appear while typing
Do not use Google Instant

there use to be a selection

do not use suggested sites, that is no longer there

Try this.
Tab bar Tools - Manage Addons - Search providers -Google search.Right click and click Disable Suggestions.

no i'm afraid it didnt work

how do I turn it off:
"Do not use Google Instant"

a quick way to do it is by clicking on the 'Instant is on' next to the word 'SEARCH' to the right of where you type in box.

You do it on the next page after it has come up with the first lot of results.

By the way I have mine set to google.co.uk and not .com but having tried it out it is the same setting on both.

see what you mean I went to the 2nd page & it already says 'instant is off'

any other ideas please

<it already says 'instant is off' >
so then what happens when you further type in the search box?
