    How can I permanently block "Tap to add as Search Engine" from randomly showing up on the top?

    I don't know why, but I'm getting at least one or two every single day from various websites. It's becoming very annoying. On some websites, if I decline today, it will ask me a couple of days later.

    I asked about this before too. And got no reply.
    it is -very- annoying. I hate how it asks to add to search for every single website I go to.

    I guess you and I are the only two Touchpad owners who find this issue very annoying?

    I you go to your settings page and then press "Just Type" and scroll down you will see all of the added search options even if you didn't add them. They are all added, just not checked for use.
    I don't know how to remove or block them.

    You can dismiss the notification by sliding it away but i don't think there's a way to disable it from notifying you unless you turn off Just Type.

    I have never used Just Type since I got my Touchpad back in August.

    How do I turn Just Type off?

    ThankS! _

    It seems that if you clear the browser history, all of those added engines will go away. Nothing stops them from coming back, and I don't care to clear my history every other day.

    Ah well.

    I guess you could clear the browser history and then select that part of "Just Type" to "OFF".
    I'm not sure it it would still save those search options or not.

    I was hoping someone would develop a patch to stop it from prompting to add these search engines.

    The only thing I ever used just type for was... webos20090606. ;-)

    Well, you can add me. That makes at least 3.

    no 4 here

    Make that 5... Some of the sites it offers as a search engine aren't even search engines. I would love to make that go away.

    How have you not used it? It's one of most defining and useful features of webOS. I use it every day, many many times a day. How do you navigate to files, apps, phone numbers, contacts, do internet searches, find web pages without it? One thing my girlfriend does to find web pages is first opens the browser and then types it in (which is annoying and unnecessary). I'm assuming you do the same thing? All you have to do is "Just Type" the web page or search query from the home screen...try it out, it's super easy and intuitive.

    Add me to that list too...I haven't used Just Type either.

    I agree, the "feature" is just annoying. Make it stop, who actually uses it to search specific websites?

    I like just type, but you can count me as someone who hates the search engine "feature"

    Almost everyone "hates" the "Tap to Add as Search Engine" popup....

    Is there one person who likes this feature? If not, the HP webOS team should really consider removing this "feature" in the next webOS update.(3.06? )

    That "feature" is terrible! I would love to see it removed. I don't know what possible business need it is serving.
