Disable URL suggestions

Since a recent release, typing in the URL bar suggests some common URL completions. For example, if I type in “m”, it suggests “msn.com”. The suggestions appear even when “Show Search Suggestions” is disabled.

I browse exclusively in private mode, so I have no saved history, and these suggestions are all irrelevant to me. I’d like a setting to be able to toggle them off.

Behaviour resembles what a browser hijack looks like. I removed all add-ons before reset to default settings.
