I was trying to visit en.wikipedia.org and the Omnibox always auto-completes en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Something_I_Typed_Manually_Before. This is not what I want.

I have enabled "Disable 'shortcuts' in the omnibox. Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS" in chrome://flags but is does not work. I do not know whether they are even talking about the same thing.

How can I redress this?

I’m using an older version of Chromium at the moment, so I can’t check, but I see the following Flags entry: Enable better omnibox history matching - Enables substring and multi-fragment matching within URLs from history. It sounds like it may have been renamed to the one you mentioned, but if not, then see if it’s disabled. – Synetech Sep 18 '12 at 4:49
    
I have tried to alter every entry related to Omnibox in Flags but none of them worked. I guess I should stop syncing URL history. – yanglifu90 Sep 18 '12 at 11:53

Removing Wikipedia from bookmarks solve this issue.
