Firefox 77 Address bar drop-down not identifying/catagorizing Bookmarks and History

I have both FF 76 and 77. At least with FF76, when I type in the address bar, in the drop-down, identifies the Bookmarks with a star to left of the bookmark so I know it's a bookmark at a glance, but still does not show any identification for History items. But in FF 77, there is NO star identifying Bookmark items and nothing for history items. Why aren't there any symbols identifying or categorizing the address bar drop-down items? I can't tell if it's Bookmarks or History or Open tabs. Thanks.

Unless I knowingly have a setting enabled to prevent these symbols.

Bookmarked items should have a star attached to the website favicon.
You can force a bookmark search by starting with a '*'.

Oh, I see. I'm seeing the blue star. I overlooked it because it's kind of subdued in the favicon. Big change from FF76. Thanks!! I've now noticed that in FF 76, the drop-down spanned the entire width of the browser window and with 77, it's the width of the address bar.

I wonder if there's any way to change it back to the old style?
