The college textbook website (Pearson) required Adobe Flash. After I enabled that add-on, the address bar in Firefox turned red. I've cleared the cache and cookies and browsing history and restarted several times, and the address bar is still red. I've attached a screenshot of the address bar.

I unchecked everything in address bar suggestions in the privacy settings. Went into the search settings and unchecked provide search suggestions as well. I tried to eliminate all search engines for "One Click Search Engines" but wasn't allowed to eliminate all of them. Also went in about:config and set to false the autofill and autocomplete for firefox URL browser lines. The "awesome bar" still mirrors everything below the address bar that I type in the URL address bar. This is new to version 65 and annoying.

I have been through numerous support pages and nothing helps, did a few about config changes as listed but still it appears. One post said it has always been there, I can assure you I never had this before and do not want it now. Is there any way to stop it please as I hate it even though just clicking removes it, I would prefer not to have it in the first place

How do I delete an individual URL from the dropdown in the address bar in Firefox 73? Shift+Del no longer works.

In previous versions all you had to do was highlight a URL in the dropdown from the address bar and Shift+Del would remove it, but that no longer works in 73.0.1, and it's funcionally impossible to find an answer via search engine because every result is pre-73 and suggests Shift+Del.

How to hide the address/URL bar again ?

Hello all,

I run a bunch of web applets locally on my computer for personal use only (http://localhost/...), and until recently I could successfully launch FF using window.open(...) with the new window NOT showing the address bar (because it takes space and looks ugly within the applet, so I want to avoid it at all cost).

I believe this changed with FF 76 (I now run v. 76.0.1 64-bit on a Windows10 based computer), anyway at this point it seems impossible to NOT have the address bar show up in a FF window. :-/

To be clear : I have searched for a solution in this forum and elsewhere, found the solution to another new problem with FF ("megabar"), also seen the trick to hide the url in the address bar - but this is not what I'm looking for : I just want to *get rid of the address bar*, period.

Thanxx in advance for any help with this issue (surprised noone else seems to complain about this). :)
