The new update makes the address bar larger when it has focus. How do I turn this off???

Posted

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

You can revert to the old AwesomeBar by:

  1. Type about:config in the urlbar
  2. Search for browser.urlbar.update1 and set it to false
  3. Search for browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and set it to false
  4. Restart Firefox

Thanks.

How do you stop it from auto-popping a list just by clicking in it? That dropdown automatically showing is new behavior too.

Hi dhicks34, you may recall that before, when you hovered the address bar, there was a little "Show History" button to list your frequently visited sites. Now that function is called by clicking anywhere in the bar.

To revert that:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus preference to switch the value from true to false

I really wonder why they didn't add it under update1 or at least a common sub-preference... I'll edit my original post. Thanks jscher2000.
