Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

In 74.0.1, when I clicked into the address bar, the previous contents were completely selected by a black background and I could type a new URL or search. In 75.0, I am not able to click into the address bar. I am shown a dropdown list of suggestions but cannot edit or type over the previous address. How can I restore the 74.0.1 behavior?

Google.ca is my home page. Once I use the browser and then go back to my home page and click on History "Google" comes up first with the G icon but "NETGEAR Router AC2600" always shows up 2nd with the Google "G" icon beside it even though I have not searched for it or been on that website. This happens even if I clear history manually. Has Netgear hacked my account and/or are they tracking me, why will it not go away??? I got rid of my Netgear router a year ago. Thanks.

Its a Joke, Mozilla?

First at all, please fire this bad employee: https://www.camp-firefox.de/profil/1-s%C3%B6ren-hentzschel/

He close Topics like this, with no reason, he is not up to his job. He just rattles off his mandatory text and says we have to get used to it, with version 77 it will be standard.

I've been using Firefox for about 18 years now, I've even donated, I just wonder why this beta was released.

Generally I don't understand why designers are constantly tinkering with design everywhere, are designers currently on offer ?!

Now my problem: If the proportions fit, I shouldn't care, in this case the address line was simply enlarged without scaling the surroundings ... now I'm on the start page and have to be extremely precise so as not to accidentally open the address bar, which completely overlaps the bookmark symbols, great, really funny.

I do not want that.

I want it to remain "normal" blank when I type something in it.

How do I go back to that behaviour?

Since FF75 whenever i open a new tab or type in the adressbar the adressbar enlarges unnecessarily (see red marking in the picture (b), (c)), bleeding over in the tabs above (a) and covering (darkening, with a shadow effect) the bookmarks below the addressbar (d).

to me this is completely unusable in this state and everytime i see it, it is highly disturbing to the eye. how do i get rid of this?

Please. Why do you add a Megabar without letting the users the abilitiy to disable it? https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/fwhlva/address_barawesomebar_design_update_in_firefox_75/

For now, it is possible to disable it. But, its just temporary. Why do u wonder when people switch to Chromium based Browsers? You just dont love us... I cant even install an XPI on Firefox Nightly, u know what people want i guess... The Megabar is so ugly, please. PLEASE dont let these things happen: Say goodbye to:

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.
