How to disable "single click selects all" in new QuantumBar?

In the past I was able to set the setting ``` browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll ``` to disable that a single click into the address bar selects the whole url. Is it possible to achieve this with the new QuantumBar somehow?

Click, wait a moment, then click again.

This does not answer my question. I want to be able to insert the cursor with the first click. It was possible with Firefox < 75.0

Thanks for your answer. Very unfortunate that this behavior was removed intentionally. But looking at all the complaints in the issue thread I hope it will come back sooner or later...

You may want to check out this workaround which is a shell script that forces `clickSelectsAll = false` behavior.

See this answer on Super User for full context and an explanation of the script.

Firefox developers needs to learn that every change they make to the user experience will annoys people. Like this stupid Quantum bar i don't care at all, me also like just the way it worked in previous versions.

One time i choose Firefox as my main browser because it was aimed to advanced users and programmers that like to tweak things. But this browser annoys me more and more with suppit things like this.

Get your head around Firefox developers, users walk away because it's becoming a browser for idiots!

Thank you for the hint. I use it already for many times.

Please don't get me wrong. But the world only gets better by people who care about something. Not the one that leaves things as they appear.

Me as an software developer thinks daily of making the world easier for us. When things come along that bothers me and i can argue why it needs to work another way, it feels like a duty to solve it.
