I do not care for how the address bar swells in size. I find it annoying and not useful as I use a separate search bar which is the ONLY reason I use Firefox instead of Chrome. Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

I've changed the settings found in this thread to remove the suggestions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283813

I also want to revert the stupid focus effect on the search bar. This is a classic case of "don't fix what isn't broken". I'd love to know if the people making these decisions at Mozilla actually use their product. From my experience in large orgs with product owners, I'd bet my entire paycheck that they don't.

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!

Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

I do not want that.

I want it to remain "normal" blank when I type something in it.

How do I go back to that behaviour?

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

How do I disable the englarged address bar when I focus on it?

As of Firefox 75, the address bar plumps out in an "enlarged" state. This is a new feature of Firefox 75, announced here: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/07/latest-firefox-updates-address-bar-making-search-easier-than-ever/

I'm wondering: how can I revert this back to how it was? I don't want it to plump out since it partly covers up the surrounding UI elements. I have a muscle memory for sometimes minimizing this bar with Escape, then clicking one of my bookmarks or one of the UI elements. I haven't had an issue seeing the address bar before, so this new feature is a detriment to me.

Thank you

Again asking for help to turn off the popup urlbar "pic related",I have asked the same question back then in Nightly version 75.0a1 when this (irritating) feature was introduced and I tried the same steps but setting "browser.urlbar.update1" to "false" doesn't work.

is this permanent? if so why? if I wanted a bulky UI I would just use the Touch Mode or the Normal Mode, at least give us the option to turn it off/on, my problem with this is 1- it ruins the Perfect aesthetic of the UI and make FF looks like Quasimodo (just saying FF has the best UI out there) 2- it overlaps with other elements of the Compact UI like the bookmarks toolbar making it irritating as a "Jack Russell terrier"

and do me please a favor Don't ruin the compact UI

So with this most recent update for Firefox, the nature of my address bar has changed significantly and I am NOT a fan. I'm a creature of habit and like to have the sites I visit frequently on my address bar drop down for me to click on the fly. These mainly are comics I read and a couple other things. These, however, are now gone and replaced with my "top sites", none of which are the pages I frequently visit.

The new help pages are useless. I understand the update also includes security so I'm not looking to revert to an older version, I just want to revert the address bar back to how it was. Help, please.


I guess I shouldve dug a little deeper. In case any one has this same issue, the way to fix it (albeit temporarily?) is:

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter. (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus

and set its value to false
