I like the new "wallpaper" just downloaded from Firefox that's at the top 3 inches of the screen. However, the address bar goes virtually across the entire screen, covering up her face. Clicking on the "View" button over the address bar, then Toolbars, then Customize, I've been able to move stuff around that was covering the area of her face. How can I shorten the address bar 3, 4 inches so I can enjoy all of the image? Thank you. Bruce

The location bar and search bar have a flex property and take all available space.
You can change the relative size of both with that resizer between the two bars, but that won't change the space that both take.
You can add Space elements at the right of the bar in the "View > Toolbars > Customize" window to make the location bar and search bar container shorter.

You can also set a specific max-width for the two bars by adding code to userChrome.css below the @namespace line.
