I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

@cor-el You're ignoring about all @ChrisB was saying.

Hi titule, this support forum has a limited scope: support forum volunteers are not the developers. We can assist you with settings and workarounds, but we don't code Firefox or prioritize development decisions.

Did you have a question for us or did you stop by to voice your displeasure?

Well.. both then... How can I contact the developers to voice my displeasure?
