How to turn off autofill for URL / address bar

  • If I search for "one two three" by typing those three words into the address bar, then another day I just type "one", Opera annoyingly fills in the "two three" part and does the wrong thing.

    Same happens if I've been to say https://birdcareco-shop.com/cart.php - another day I typed "birdcare" to get to their website, yet it took me to the shopping cart which is no longer valid.

    There must be some way to turn this annoying "feature" off. I want it to do what I say, not something beginning with what I say.

    It would also be rather embarrassing if you searched for "tied up women" and the next day in front of your wife you typed "tied" for another reason and she sees what you've been looking at.
