I started encountering this issue after a recent Chrome update. Omnibox autocomplete now returns previous searches before previously visited URLs. This is annoying for me as I'm used to typing in one or two characters of my most frequently visited URLs and hitting enter to access them. Is it possible to return to this configuration?
I'm having this issue as well. This fixed it for me:
- Go to
- Set the flag "Omnibox Google Drive Document suggestions" to disabled
It's unclear exactly why this works. It appears to be a bug: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=962599
This is the flag you want to disable:
Omnibox Group Suggestions By Search vs URL
Group suggestions by major type, search then navigation, except for the default match which must be first. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android
