Recently, I've started noticing these quick action tiles in the URL drop-down menu (I've attached a screenshot). There's a help icon to their right, but it just goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quick-actions-firefox-search-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is a 404. I found this bugzilla bug, but I'm not 100% sure on how the versioning works (even after consulting Wikipedia). The bugzilla entry mentions it's fixed on 105.0a1. I'm using 105.0b6 of the Developer Edition.

You can set these two Boolean prefs to false on the about:config page to disable the Quick Actions.

  • browser.urlbar.shortcuts.quickactions = false
  • browser.urlbar.suggest.quickactions = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. If you get the warning page, you can click the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button.

EDIT: Firefox 105 will allow to do this via the Settings page as shown in the attached screenshot. Can't you do this via Settings ?

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Address Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:

The help article will be there once 105 reaches release.

Thanks, the about:config toggles worked. In the Address Bar settings, I don't have a checkbox for the shortcuts. I've attached a screenshot of what mine looks like.
