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

I attach a screenshot. https://i.paste.pics/68eddeae26ebdc356b46e73ca924e13c.png

In other browsers there is no such problem.

What happened to the address bar in update 65? It's awful. It use to only show my most visited bookmarks(ie:facebook) or websites I physically typed in. Now it shows everything but that. It makes it super cluttered and overall awful. I have tried messing with the settings and nothing works. I feel like I need to downgrade and disable automatic updates or move to a new explorer all together.

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). :)

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.

Why is Firefox still storing user data when I've done "Forget about this site"?

I selectively delete data on sites by doing Show All History, finding a row for the site I want to remove, and then doing Right Click -> "Forget About This Site". I do this rather than globally forget all data because there are a few site logins I want to retain.

I just did this with every row in the History - This Month tab. It's now empty.

However, when I type a single letter (e.g. "a") into the search box a huge list of URLs appears, many of them from this month. They include a number of sites, like my on-line banking, that I previously believed I had erased all trace of.

1) Why are these URLs not shown in my history except when a search term is entered?

2) Why does "Forget About This Site" not clear EVERYTHING for the site in question?

For info, I'm running FF 61.01.1 for Linux Mint.

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.

After a recent update, the highlighted text in the address bar got a lot less clear. Previous: background will turn blue, letters are white Current: background won't change, only the letters themselves change color

It a lot harder now to see which part is highlighted. I found a work-around to restore the old address bar but I guess in a recent update, this doesn't work anymore.

How can I get the older, much better look back?

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.

Since the last update a blue bar below the url bar appears.

I have followed the support suggestions by 1) unchecking relevant boxes in Preferences, Search and Preferences, Privacy.

Then followed suggestions in about:config by changing the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled to false.

This has not resolved the issue after several attempts.

Hit Reset Firefox and again reset the browser.urlbar.autocompleted.enabled to false. Again this did not resolve the issue.

Please advise how to resolve as the blue bar and list of suggestions is both not required and annoying to the point of no longer using this browser.

My firefox just updated and is now forcing me to have a default search engine connected to my address bar. I never used the address bar to search and don't want to start now. I've tried all the settings and it doesn't give me an option to remove this new feature. It gives the option to change which default search engine is connected to the address bar, but it doesn't give NONE as an option, or let me set it up so that the default search engine is only used for the search bar and not the address bar. I also can't restore my previous version. Is there any way to resolve this issue?
