    Okay, I'm having a senior moment. I'm trying to keep the address bar
    (where you enter the URL) from automatically displaying the last items
    typed or visited. I thought that there was a setting to turn this off,
    but I'm drawing a blank.

    I know I can clear the memroy cache, and I'm pretty sure that if I set
    the History box to 0 for "Number of Days", that would work. But isn't
    there a way to *keep* the history if I wanted to look it up (say, via
    the Go menu), but not display the addresses?

    It's possible that I'm remembering an IE tweak, too, so maybe that's why
    I can't find it.

    The only way I've been able to accomplish this is to clear the history. At
    first I thought that a bit drastic, but it turned out I didn't need access
    to any of those sites after all. I'll stay tuned to see if anyone comes up
    with a compromise solution.

    I don't know how to keep typed URLs from going into the location bar
    history but I know that you can remove an unwanted URL by bringing up
    the list of URLs, highlighting the URL you don't want and typing

    Is there a way I can make the newest URLs, and recently used ones be on top?
    I liked the way it worked like that in IE. TIA!
