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

After Firefox updated today, it no longer brings up my homepage when I launch the browser. Instead, it's just a blank page (not even a default page). Clicking on the homepage takes me to the correct address.

>Properties show "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no extension.

>I've tried resetting homepage defaults in the options, to no change.

Is there anyway I can get my homepage to show up when I launch the browser?

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

Fixes for disabled firefox addons are no longer available?

The short description of the problem is that the following link is broken and I'm not sure where I should go to download that file: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/disabled-add-on-fix-57-60/


A longer description is that KaiOS (mobile operating system going into use in places like india and africa) is building off of firefoxOS, and developing for this requires the WebIDE features that were in firefox until v59 (documentation here: https://developer.kaiostech.com/getting-started/env-setup/os-env-setup). Installing the adbhelper addon (https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/labs/fxos-simulator/adb-helper/linux64/) in firefox v59 doesn't work because of an issue with an expired signing key. The workaround was apparently to install an addon (as described here for Firefox versions 57 – 60: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/comment-page-5/), but it appears that this addon is no longer available. The KaiOS people might know of a workaround when I get in touch with them, but their documentation says to use this almost identical fix (similarly not available): https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-BR/firefox/addon/disabled-add-on-fix-52-56/

Firefox very slowly opens websites from other sources - Evernote, messenger, office word, PDF. It's not really the fault of a too slow laptop (i7-1065G7, 16 GB frame memory, SSD NVMe + current drivers).

It makes my work very difficult, is there any solutions?
