Hello Sixtyfour and thank you for the feedback. Glad that you liked the update.
Regarding the “Hide suggestions” menu could you give us more details? Is it about the browser’s address bar search where it shows you the history of searches or about the google.com autocomplete suggestions?
In settings, on Sync and Google services on bottom part you have the last 2 options, you can uncheck them to see if that solved your problem.
Yes, my first description wasn’t very informative. I’ll try to elaborate and see if I can describe it better.
A field on a webpage can have a name, for example “email” or “username”. When I start typing text in that field a list of suggestions are displayed. These suggestions are fetched from the table named “autofill” in sqlite database “Web Data”, located in Dragon’s folder “…\User Data\Default”.
With the latest update of Dragon an option “Hide suggestions” is added to the bottom of the list that appears. It may sound ironic, but that last option is the one I would like to hide.
Take “Account Signin | Issuu” as an example. There is an input field named “email”, so I only have to type the first letter of my username and then press down-arrow and tab (or enter) on the keyboard to select it.
The settings i find under Sync and Google services had no effect, assuming it is these two:
Allow Comodo Dragon sign-in (turned it off)
Autocomplete searches and URLs (was already off)
I can add that I always run Dragon in incognito mode, and edit the previously mentioned “autofill” table manually. That way I know it only contains suggestions I want to see, and not things that have been automatically saved.
Now I realize I should have started a separate thread instead of asking a question in the news section.
Hello Sixtyfour, the Hide suggestions “Button” from the dropdown menu cannot be disabled and i do not see any reason you would do that. If the list is to long you can delete some information or hide all suggestions like this:
1.If you want to keep some suggested and delete others click on the checkbox and the suggestion pop-up will appear select with the mouse(hover over do not click) the email for example you don’t want to see as suggested and press Shift+Delete and it will be deleted.
2.If you do not want to see any suggestion in the email field you have to type chrome://settings/addresses in the search bar and disable it. You can also disable the chrome://flags/#show-autofill-type-predictions if the problem still persists like in the screenshots attached
Thanks for the reply Sergiu90.
I like the suggestions that appear. I was just worried that I accidentally click on “Hide suggestions” and all suggestions that I want to keep would disappear. So I guess I should have started by asking what “Hide suggestions” actually does.
Hello Yoshiki i’m sorry to hear that you still have a issue with the taskbar icon, unfortunately there is not much we can do to help you, windows 7 is not receiving any more updates it has been discontinued and il will continue to have more issues as time passes. We test the browser on windows 7 and 8 as well and i can confirm that the Minimize, Maximize buttons appear and work fine on 4 different test machines and it leads me to believe that a fresh install of windows may solve your issues. It can be that some cached files from dragon are misread but it is hard to pin-point the exact issue.
