Search bar keeps showing my top eight sites, won't let me see URLs I use frequently

Ever since my Firefox updated to 75.0 yesterday (the 9th of April), whenever I want to type-in a URL I use frequently -for example, Twitter- the URL itself never shows-up as it did halfway through typing. Instead I have to put the whole thing in. What's more, no matter what, the top eight sites I have when I open a new tab are always the things the search bar suggests. I've turned off everything in the Search options, but I just want to be able to get back all of my URLs in the search bar, as it's far easier than having to constantly use Google to find them all, just as it's easier to have those URLs in the drop-down menu rather than what I see.

Is there any way I can fix this?

Problem turning off URL-bar auto-suggestions in Firefox

(I remember posting this before, but I am unable to find it anywhere. Perhaps it wasn't stored. I apologize in advance for duplicate posting!)

I use Firefox 75.0 (64-bits) on mac OS X Catalina for browsing. It gives me the following issue. When I start typing a youtube… URL in the address bar, a specific sub-page to the YouTube domain pops up first. It refers to s specific clip on youtube. While I’m typing, in front of it a grey star appears, such a marking a favorite. However, it’s NOT in my favorites. The auto-suggestions do not come from other opened tabs. This option is turned off. 
I don’t use any Firefox subscription account services for storing favorites online. Suggestions from search engines are also toggled off. 
I’ve tried all remaining suggestions on the following pages to get rid of this issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions 1st method for clearing a single item didn’t work; 3rd method to clear my browsing history didn’t work.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1213978 I have turned off browser.urlbar.autoFill = false. Toggling this option, at least, got rid of unsolicited suggestions from the worldwide web such as youtubemoneycalculator.com. It’s a partial success!

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1213978 keyword.enabled is set to false, but toggling this won’t make any difference. browser.fixup.alternate.enabled is set to false, but toggling this won’t make any difference.


The only method that makes a difference is to turn off Addres bar suggestions from Favorites (in about:preferences#privacy). But then I don’t get any suggestions at all…

This example merely illustrates the issue with youtube… domain names, it happens with any address that I start typing in the address bar. Peculiarly, addresses that ARE stored in my favorites, do not appear first in the suggested domain names.
Okay, I’ve done my homework!

My conclusion/question: Some (former) favorites are stored in a location that I have no access to. I would like to receive suggestions as to where I can find these. Preferably, I do not want to delete every single one of them one by one.


Bottom line: It would be nice if I had some sort of control over my favorites. The suggestions appear to be totally random. If the most recently or most frequently visited favorites would appear first, that would make sense. Or if the main page would appear first (youtube.com) and not any other subpages. Does anyone know if this is possible and then, how to achieve this?

Lastly: I don’t understand why a browser that claims to be so concerned about my privacy allows for so many unwanted options. Also, it is a nuisance if these options are actually reset with every update Firefox installs. I have the impression that this happens. I did notice that now and then additional search engines are added to my one-click-search engines (about:preferences#search) without my prior notification. How does this comply with Firefox’s privacy concerns?

opened Firefox this morning, got the you have updated Firefox message and since then every SINGLE time i open a new tab the search/address bar doubles in size, gets a blue border and almost completely covers my bookmark bar. i have to click somewhere in blank page to get the search bar to reduce in size so i can see my bookmarks. and when i do click in search bar to type something it immediately doubles in size, gets a blue border and has a list of websites appear under the cursor. why would anyone think this is something that needed to be changed i don't know. how do i get the search bar to act like normal? i hate this doubling in size/blue border stupid thing and it makes Firefox very VERY annoying to use. especially since more often than not i open new tabs so i can click on my bookmarks. having to now click somewhere to get the search bar to become normal size just so i can actually SEE my bookmarks is REALLY ANNOYING! like find new browser annoying!

It appears firefox is working REALLY HARD to keep putting the Google search up in successive versions, changing code to subvert the wishers of firefox customers. What is the latest method to drop this? I like having previously visited sites up and this makes the limited list even more limited especially now that they've added search with Amazon as well. It seems like the best reasons to use Firefox are being taken away by Mozilla. Is there a new browser that addresses the concerns Firefox addressed in the past, i.e. not being a slave to a company obsessed with taking over your browser experience for their own advertising income? Firefox has nice features but I'd rather lose a few features if that's required to lose the forced advertising and/or forced extra steps to avoid using their "partner" program. (Ironically I use Google for searches now and will explore other options based on this situation.)

I would like to totally get rid of the blue bar that pops up under the address bar. Previously, setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to False did the trick. I found that solution in this article https://www.askvg.com/tip-remove-search-with-google-and-visit-website-options-from-firefox-addressbar-results/ Now on Firefox 75 I realized it's not working. The blue bar shows up if doing a search, using a URL shortcut (alias) or doing a quick search. It's add no value to me and is just clutter. I've been using Firefox since it's release in the early 2000s and the plain jane address/search bar has always worked for me. How can I get rid of the blue bar?

I don't know why anyone thinks this is better. I don't see the rational behind this. If there was an option to switch how it's handled that would be fine but this everyone has to do it the way I want isn't mozilla. It's not why I use firefox.

I'm certain this will be ignored just like all the other questions about it. Insert principal skinner saying no it's the kids that are wrong meme.

first of all, the new searchbar is a PITA. why would you make it pop out and enlarge?! do you wanna appeal to the elderly to make them realize where they just clicked?! a simple colored border would be just enough. The dropdown would be alright, except when you actually wanted to click a bookmark. now you can press escape, but the searchbar uncomfortably hovers over the bookmark bar, which gives me a weird kind of claustrophobia. Even worse when you want to deactivate that hover you have to click somewhere on the site, not just on the free empty space left or right of the searchbar. And guess how much fun it is finding a spot to click that is not a link...

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit). When I type in the address bar, the bar expands in a way that's visually jarring. I just want it to stay the same size, which was the default behavior until recently.

After a previous update, I was able to revert to the old address bar by using the instructions here: https://www.ghacks.net/2020/04/08/how-to-restore-the-old-firefox-address-bar/

I did the about:config stuff and that worked fine. But with the newest update (77), the about:config stuff no longer seems to have any effect. Even the alternate userChrome.css method has no effect.

What should I do?
