I've deleted Instant in the Settings menu many times, but it always returns. Anyone know how to delete this annoying, nonsensical nuisance permanently?

Hello again Fruit Bat and thanks. Very interesting and helpful link, but after reading it I'm unsure if I want to go into it too deeply for fear of disabling things other than Instant, However the FF section mentions an add-on, but I can't see it listed. Am I misreading?

I assume you are using Chrome?

I use the ADBlock plus Add on for Chrome to disable all sorts of annoying pop up adverts I have no problems with instant or suggestions.

No, I use Firefox, I've also got ABP. Strange, reading that you don't get bothered by Instant although you use Chrome, I was under the impression that using that browser meant that Instant can't be disabled.
