I'm using FF, an while typing it, it lags a bit and changes what I wrote. It happens with other examples. Anyone else has experienced this annoyance and knows how to fix it?
I find the dynamic list useful but I don't it substituting and searching what I didn't write.

If your computer is not fast enough to keep from lagging while you type, turn off dynamic search. That's really your only option, other than get a faster computer.

I think his point is that his computer is lagging while he types, and it auto-fills "firefox" before he can ever hit the space. And apparently, for some reason, it doesn't allow him to keep typing to add the space properly in order to change it to fire emblem. That piece I don't know why, but then I don't use dynamic search (it bothered me seeing my entire page continually changing as I typed).

strange that it gets all the way through FIRE before it glitches out, maybe hitting the space bar is picking the choice.

Well, I know I've had this auto-fill crap disabled for a long, long time now. I much prefer only seeing what I typed previously and not what the entire god damn world thinks I want to type.

The computer doesn't lag, it's FF that lags, or the internet is not speedy enough.
I am actually not even sure if it's this way. I type really fast, without mistakes and I think I am at: "fire em_" when it changes to firefox, or fills it like: "firefoxlem"
I want the dynamic list since it's helpful most of the time if I am unsure what exactly I want to search for. But i wouldn't mind disabling the search results that appear while I don't execute the search myself.
Where do I turn that off?

try disabling remember form and search history and see if that helps

I think it's kind of fun to leave it on and see what other people have previously typed, or to see if people have Googled the exact same thing as me.
