Browser does not complete URL

For most URL's used regularly, the browser automatically completes them.

But for one, it stopped the fill-in process. Now entire URL must be typed. What are the likely causes?

most browsers have this as an option in the preferences that can be turned off. Yours seems to be off.

Safari in private mode does not autocomplete, unless the address is a bookmark or in history of the page… or tab. Can’t remember.

An option for a single URL or for all URL's? Using Brave browser.

I think this is it in the Brave prefs:



This gives me the impression that if you have all cookies shut down, it can't work ???

Where is the Privacy & Security material you showed?

This is all I found in Brave Preferences:
Get started
Profile name & icon
Import bookmarks/settings
Brave is your default browser
On startup
Open the new tab page
Continue where you left off
Open a specific page or set of pages

I must be doing something wrong…

I searched prefs for 'URL' and this option was on the list

You're right, Hal, this morn I checked again and found it. Don't recall if it was on or off, but I closed Brave, opened it again and set it to ON.

Same result as before. With one URL it will not autocomplete; with others it works.

Would downloading Brave again be of any use?

Thanks!
