When I click on the URL bar or search bar it has a blue border. How do I get rid of that?

Someone asked this before about a year ago but I didn't find any legit answers. Just suggesting to use a different theme which I don't want to do. Is there an option to disable this or an add-on? If not, Mozilla needs to address this because that thick blue border is just terrible looking.

Also note, this is not because of Windows 10. Windows 10 doesn't put any weird borders around URL box in Chrome or Edge. So I am pretty sure this is a FF issue.

It's not to worry. That just shows what field is the current focus. If you want it stopped, I can call for more help.

Is it always there or just when that field has focus?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

I don't want to install another add-on for this but thank you anyway. Wish FF gave us the option to toggle it in about:config.
