FF75: Disable urlbar expansion

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.

I do not care for how the address bar swells in size. I find it annoying and not useful as I use a separate search bar which is the ONLY reason I use Firefox instead of Chrome. Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

How do i get rid of the 'new' addressbar ?

Since FF75 whenever i open a new tab or type in the adressbar the adressbar enlarges unnecessarily (see red marking in the picture (b), (c)), bleeding over in the tabs above (a) and covering (darkening, with a shadow effect) the bookmarks below the addressbar (d).

to me this is completely unusable in this state and everytime i see it, it is highly disturbing to the eye. how do i get rid of this?

So with the new update, the top URL bar will pop out slightly when you click it to type in a URL, or when you open a new tab. This is very distracting to me, why can't it just stay the same like before?

Is there a way to stop it from doing this?

I do not want that.

I want it to remain "normal" blank when I type something in it.

How do I go back to that behaviour?

Its a Joke, Mozilla?

First at all, please fire this bad employee: https://www.camp-firefox.de/profil/1-s%C3%B6ren-hentzschel/

He close Topics like this, with no reason, he is not up to his job. He just rattles off his mandatory text and says we have to get used to it, with version 77 it will be standard.

I've been using Firefox for about 18 years now, I've even donated, I just wonder why this beta was released.

Generally I don't understand why designers are constantly tinkering with design everywhere, are designers currently on offer ?!

Now my problem: If the proportions fit, I shouldn't care, in this case the address line was simply enlarged without scaling the surroundings ... now I'm on the start page and have to be extremely precise so as not to accidentally open the address bar, which completely overlaps the bookmark symbols, great, really funny.

first of all, the new searchbar is a PITA. why would you make it pop out and enlarge?! do you wanna appeal to the elderly to make them realize where they just clicked?! a simple colored border would be just enough. The dropdown would be alright, except when you actually wanted to click a bookmark. now you can press escape, but the searchbar uncomfortably hovers over the bookmark bar, which gives me a weird kind of claustrophobia. Even worse when you want to deactivate that hover you have to click somewhere on the site, not just on the free empty space left or right of the searchbar. And guess how much fun it is finding a spot to click that is not a link...
