Ever since I updated to 5, my address bar has been autofilling the title of the page I go to, for instance:

Say I have been to Zappos and looked at a pair of converse, the title at the top of the window will say something like "Converse shoe etc."

Well then say I've looked on at something before, and I want to go there again. If I start typing "converse" into the address bar, it wants to autfill the "Converse shoe etc." title and take me to the Zappos page instead of

Is there a way to disable this? I liked it the way it was before, If im typing something in the address bar I only want ti to guess urls, not page titles.

Try going to Safari Preferences and then to the Autofill Section. Check Off "Address Book" and "Other forums".

Other than than I would suggest Bookmarking pages that you view frequently so that you don't have to type in the address.

There is currently no known way to disable this in Safari 5, I'm sorry to say.
