New wider address bar

I do not like this wide address bar and need to go back to classic look. I tried some links on this support but it does not help. I would also like to to have to reset my preferences after each update. My version is 83.0 on Windows 7.

Thanks

Firefox 63+ has support for "@media (prefers-reduced-motion)" to honor system settings to minimize the amount of non-essential motion. See:

You can create a new Number pref named ui.prefersReducedMotion on the about:config page to show or block some animations. In Firefox 78+ this includes the location bar breakout. In Firefox 80+ this replaces the tab loading indicator with an hourglass.

  • set the value to 1 if you want to block animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 1
  • set its value to 0 if you want to see animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 0

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
