God morning, looking for help to find a way back to the old search method i.e. I want the search to be done in my Google/Bing/etc-search bar in the middle of the screen instead of in the address bar. Firefox 93.0 (64), Win 10 Thanks for your help in advance! Henrik

You can turn it off by entering about:config in the URL bar and switching browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.

Oops - it works in normal mode but not in "Private Window". When checking the setup according to you instruction it's "False". But still the search is done in the URL-bar.
