Since firefox 75 (I think) the address bar has changed its appearance and behaviour, I was wondering if there are options to revert it back.

Hello mattia.basaglia,

This is a temporarily fix (so I'm told), but I am optimistically
hoping that they will come to their senses …..

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter. (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus

and set its value to false

Do the same with these preferences :

browser.urlbar.update1

browser.urlbar.update1.interventions

browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

Then close and restart Firefox.

(if it's only the Top Sites suggestions that you want to get rid of :
setting the value of first preference to "false" will do that)

Helpful?
