Now that FF has updated to version 50, it has revealed a 1 pixel pipe thing in the URL bar. I'm looking for the CSS code to remove it. I have a list of 'display:none' stuff and looking to add that to the list if anyone knows what it's called.

Thanks in advance.

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

This is on Quantum that I just installed. I can keep installing it but in a few minutes it changes to solid colors once again. I can't relate these changes to any of my actions. It only applies the colors to the tabs and and Bookmarks Tool bar and the Linen theme disappears.

Is there a addon that allows me to open new tab when I enter the url or search content or when I click the bookmark? I used to have "Tab mix Plus" in the old version of Firefox. It does not work in the new version. I know you can use "Alt+Enter" or use the middle click to open url/bookmark in the new tab. But I want it to be the default style. Thanks!
