How to restore address bar behavior and line height in 75.0?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

I cannot export or backup bookmarks. When I try to, no file is created. I have refreshed Firefox, created a new profile and copied the sqlite file, and uninstalled/reinstalled. None of these actions solved the issue. Could there be a corrupt bookmark that is preventing these functions? Is there another way to export/backup?

It now becomes bigger when you click on it or open a new tab, which is getting in the way of my toolbar. Is there a way to turn this feature off, and revert to the previous behavior (where it did not change size when clicked on or opened in a new tab?)

I know this seems like a small thing, but it's majorly getting in the way of me using my toolbar like I have in the past. To the point where I'm considering going back to Chrome. Please advise!

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.

The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

How do I disable the englarged address bar when I focus on it?

As of Firefox 75, the address bar plumps out in an "enlarged" state. This is a new feature of Firefox 75, announced here: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/07/latest-firefox-updates-address-bar-making-search-easier-than-ever/

I'm wondering: how can I revert this back to how it was? I don't want it to plump out since it partly covers up the surrounding UI elements. I have a muscle memory for sometimes minimizing this bar with Escape, then clicking one of my bookmarks or one of the UI elements. I haven't had an issue seeing the address bar before, so this new feature is a detriment to me.

Thank you

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?

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.

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.
