Hello Mozilla Support, please advise on how to permanently disable the "expanding/enlarging" URL bar that continues to be featured with each new browser update. From previous experience, I have uninstalled/reinstalled and attempted to change the following advanced settings as seen on other threads:
Method 1: 1. about:config 2. browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = FALSE 3. browser.urlbar.update1 = FALSE 4. browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = FALSE 5. browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = FALSE
Method 2: 1. about:config 2. browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests = TRUE 3. browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0
Neither of these methods currently seem to work and even when they have worked in the past, why does Mozilla continue to enable this feature with each new update without a simple option to disable when so many users have requested instructions on how to shut off? What is the purpose of the expanding URL bar? What does an enlarged URL bar do to benefit the search experience? Is there another reason why Mozilla keeps this feature going for every new update? It often becomes time consuming to search and figure out what the new procedure is to keep disabling, every single time an update occurs.
Please help, Thank you!
