Chosen solution

Go to about:config and change browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

However, do note that eventually we might remove these settings so you'll have to use the new urlbar at some point in the future

Thank you, it being bigger is kind of nice but it makes my bookmark toolbar harder to use. I wish it wouldn't expand into that space.
