Hi, after last firefox update, you deleted smal triangle button that was on the right side on tab where you type site adress, can you bring this back it was really handy :P

Chosen solution

Same thing here. It was a good feature. Probably the main reason I have always used Firefox over Google Chrome. Maybe Firefox isn't concerned about keeping PC users?

Either way, I got it fixed. But it's a ridiculously not easy solution.

Try This:

1. Go to address bar, type: about:config

2. Confirm that you will be careful

3. Search for the following preferences and set them all to FALSE

            1. browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
            2. browser.urlbar.update1
            3. browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
            4. browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
            5. browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps

4. Close and restart the Firefox browser and hopefully your address arrow should be back on the right hand side of the address bar.
