I find the new expanded search bar annoying and unhelpful. Is there a way to revert it to how it was before?

Chosen solution

go to about:config and tweak these settings

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

That actually did fix my problem. I hit "No" by mistake.

Thanks.

This is happening again with 77.0.1.

The referenced settings do not remove it.

Is there something else I can do?
